productivity - when you don't know what to do... — LiveJournal
do the next thing
It's actually been a semi-productive evening. I stopped at WalMart on the way home and got a new plastic storage tub to put my yarn stash in. Compared to some, my stash is pitifully small, but I am only an egg, and have barely started to stash. So I tidied my yarn, and tidied my knitting books (again, a pitifully small selection, but I have a little list), and picked up the trash and the clothes and most of the mess that was my corner, and it looks so nice. I'd also wanted to clean out my bureau and put my clothes in it (shock, surprise, me putting clothes away), but I didn't get that far before Wolfie came home with Chinese food, and then I settled down to fix the mistake I made on the blue sweater.

So that's all fixed, my little corner is tidier, the bill I needed to send out today is sent, and I can send out the remainder of my bills tomorrow and do the stuff I wanted to in order to tidy the bedroom some more. I want to rearrange the furniture, maybe put the tall dresser in one of the closets for summer sweater storage, then move my white dresser over to where the tall one is now, and then we can put a hamper in that corner for Wolfie's dirty clothes. Then maybe I won't trip so much on my way to bed in the dark -- I keep swearing and waking him up. And then... oh, then... the computer room. I think I'm going to need another box of garbage bags.

I just want to get things tidied up so that we can get to work on the ceilings downstairs, and maybe get this place in order before next winter. I want us to have a home, not just a very large, expensive box that holds our stuff in the most inconvenient manner possible. I know that Wolfie feels the same way.

When we were eating dinner on our anniversary, Wolfie said something about how our life together is an ongoing project. It's so true. We have goals, and when we reach them, we'll set other goals, and all the time I know that we'll be there for each other. I have this absolute confidence and trust in him. And the telepathy gets stronger everyday -- for some reason, lately it's been scary-strong. But irt's the warm, fuzzy kind of scary... the kind where you know you're not alone in the dark.

Well, it makes sense to me.

I so agree with you! We are but baby stashers! I have only about four projects of stashed yarn for myself. I have about three more projects of shash beyond that. Three of all of it is sock projects. Those count, to me. To other people, well, they say you always have to have sock yarn.

I need another storage tub too. I have a nice one for my yarn, but I need some for my Christmas ornaments, and some for the wedding supplies I'll be lugging to Vegas. So many I need three or something. I LOVE the ones from Casabella. they're called "neat" and they don't sell them where I live anymore, but they were the best I have ever used. What kind did you get?

Hell yeah, sock yarn counts! I don't care if it is regarded as a staple.

Barbarian that I am, I got this cheap ass Sterilite thing from WalMart. I don't need anything fancy at the moment. I picked the one I did because its got the split flip-open, interlocking lid -- no separate lid to lose or deal with when I'm looking for something. It's this one: http://www.sterilite.com/Category.html?Section=Storage&ProductCategory=41 -- I think the 40 qt.

I need to hit the Salvation Army for a bureau, too; I'll need the storage when I set up my sewing room. If I get a decent quality one, eevn if I hate the color, my mom can help me refinish it.
