I have been advised when I am working on a project to take breaks every few hours. And seriously I have been trying to do that. However, I am inclined to believe after three straight days of cleaning closets, shelves and drawers that I need more than a 10 or 15 minutes break every few hours. I think I need a half day or whole day break.
Tomorrow that is what I am planning. I am going to pack media boxes for mailing and take a break from cleaning. Oh, I am still going to finish up the room I started today, but I am hoping to accomplish that in short order.
Yes, I know how that goes. The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray and I always tend to anticipate a job taking less time than it does, but no matter what, I am taking a break. I need to bake bread too for the visitors from Sunday so that will be a nice change of pace too.
After my day break I will be better able to determine if I should do this more often or if I should take longer breaks during my cleaning.
I don’t mind cleaning. My biggest problem is trying to determine what to do with the stuff I am clearing out. The give away and throw away are easy. It’s the keep that is hard to deal with and the problem is because I can’t figure out where to put the boxes I need to move. My house is just not big on storage space and added to that is that fact that I can’t lug heavy boxes up the stairs to the attic. Maybe I need to find someone to carry them. And I just remembered that I need to label them as well.
All this writing helped me figure out some answers to my questions. Thanks.
Father, you provide help just when I need it and discussing this gave me some good solutions for tomorrow. I am really blessed. Thank you. Amen.
