Gwen D's Spring Gleaning
As of January 23, I have made good forays in the three weeks back at work. My house is a DISASTER AREA. I know it's because I have sort of been injured or sick since October, so I refuse to let myself get mad at me. (Believe me, that strategy is NEW NEW NEW. Usually I get stuck in a loop of blame for way too long. Not going there.)
Long term look::
GET MY HOUSE NEAT AND CLEAN AND FUNCTIONAL WITH LOTS LESS STUFF
KEEP MY WORK WORK ALL CAUGHT UP
HAVE A WORK PROJECT TO LOOK FORWARD TO TOO
GET BACK TO EXERCISE AND KEEP EATING RIGHT

Moving to new digs
That is a great thread-starter. Thanks for the cheer!
I am going to move to a new apartment in two-weeks, inshallah. Have I packed anything? No.
In the meantime, I have job job to do, and freelance gig. So it's Sunday at 4 pm and I'm still sitting here. That can't be good.
I keep thinking I've decluttered, been trying since last August to be taking stuff out of the house, but I think that is an illusion.
I have two computers and an old broken backup harddrive. I have lots of silly clothes. I have about 300 books. I have a paltry set of kitchen things and a bit of chaos in the spice cupboard. I have lots of old cassettes and photos, letters and sad papers, basically, my past.
I have a few drawers full of knick-knacks and old, semi-useful hardware and household tools. I have a lot of old and unfiled business papers.
Maybe after I make progress on the freelance job I should make a box of useless papers that need to be shredded.
And I could box up any books that I don't want anymore, though I sort of did that last summer, I should try again.
My friend has offered me space at her garage sale next Saturday 8th. Maybe there are things that would be profitable to sell or rid myself of.
Okay. I can only do what I can do. I need the $500 for the freelance job, so I will do that first.
Worst case outcome with stuff, I move some useless things into the new apartment. No one cares.
Wish me luck this month. It'll be a doozy.

Gwen D -- Logging on the Major Scale
Interestingly, I am seeing a pattern of being sick in the late fall every year.
Also, the new digs seem to be the correct thing for me. Though I hate change, I think this was the right thing to do.
I am on vacation, and resting. Work starts again in 5 days. I may not get to be as fabulous as I thought I had to be, but the main thing is to build up my capacity for productive routine. It is becoming apparent that the youthful cavalier style of living in the moment damn the torpedoes is nearing the end of its usefulness.
My horoscope for today:
Full Moon in 6th house, 6°47 6, exact at 06:46
active only on 28 November 2012
Remember to do this regularly.

This doesn't really have to do with your list much, but I like the idea of thinking about Spring in January :) Seasons can be a state of mind!
Good luck conquering your tasks!
