These thingsÂ are destined to end up in the Joy Jar shortly, but I want to smile over them a little longer first. And here are some other thinks:
- I’m thinking of setting up a work area in the living room corner. This will necessitate re-arranging some furniture in there, and finding another bookcase that I can shift into my room to hold the stuff currently in my work area that I don’t use daily. But it will also allow me to
- ~monitor the children while I do school work (this is a biggie)
- ~return my room to a place of relaxation and contemplation instead of combined work and everything else
- ~put a reading chair back in my room, which I have greatly missed
- ~spend less time online, because my computer will be *out there* and I know I will still spend chunks of time *in here* after the kids are asleep
- I’m thinking my yard is a complete wreck, and I need to plan a family work day to fix that.
- I’m thinking of cutting the worn linoleum OUT of the dining room. Â It’s more of an eyesore than the plywood underflooring would be. Â And it’s the first thing you see when you come in the house–after the yard which I have already mentioned.
- I’m thinking about what to do with all these books. Â Of course, moving the work area out and a reading chair in will help, but then I need to decide if I want toÂ sell books online once I finish them, or just donate them.
- I’m thinking about how to fix the vacuum cleaner (won’t pick up), the fridge (now freezes everything), and the washer (still won’t work right). Â I need to change the filters, see what happens after I adjust the setting (which I did this morning), and call the repair place (which I did before I left, but they were setting appointments for while I was gone).
- I’m thinking about how to return to my practice. Â I think the room rearrangement will help with that. Â No computer in the bedroom = place of relaxation and contemplation = meditative mood = more prone to actually meditate.
Yeah, so basically I need to move furniture and buy a yard rake and a box cutter.
