I have some very productive insomnia. I cleaned my half of the room just about from top to bottom, and while Ringo is at school tomorrow I'll do what I can with his half, organizing and sorting and putting away what can be put away.
I've mostly left him to himself in regards to his stuff as long as I can
reach my bed and he can reach his, but it had reached a state that may
have been contributing to my depression and anxiety.
So when Osaka and Pherret went to sleep I started with changing my
sheets, then sorting through the pile of clothes on the floor, then the
upper bin of clothes. I lack of a chest of drawers so I keep two plastic
bins stacked with out of season stuff on bottom. With the clothes I
sorted clean or dirty, and then folded all the clean clothing and put it
I may have Pherret run me to Home Depot tomorrow to pick up another
storage bin and might drop off my Build-A-Bears to storage. I'll have to
see how the day goes. The only reason I've stopped cleaning is that I
got a little winded after 3 straight hours of moving and lifting and
sorting, and anything else I'd like to do, requires more moving of
things than I can quietly do.
I am fairly pleased with my progress but completely dissatisfied with
the general state of the room. If I remember I'll take some pics
tomorrow before and after I tackle the shared space. I may even change
Ringo's sheets too, and make his bed. If he hadn't been asleep in said
bed, I'd have done it tonight.
As things stand, I may be having to move back to Texas in a couple of
months. It's complicated and I don't want to ruin my cleaning zen by
delving in too deeply for right now. Cleaning and sorting is giving me
some minor relief. Moving is one of my biggest fears and without
exposing all my raw spots, I'll just say that even when it's a "good"
move, it's still a bad one for me, psychologically. And this wouldn't be
a good move.
I'm hoping that focusing on something other than work and my
questionable future, will help me to keep as sane as is likely for me.
Cleaning has always helped with that, and I'm hoping to do some sewing
and maybe even play with some of my dolls tomorrow. :]
I will also likely be sorting and putting away several loads worth of
clean laundry too. That combined with my other plans, should give me
enough to do to occupy me for the majority of the day, without having to
escape into video-games, books, or movies.
