The more Sara, the better!

Daily dribble about life, pets, coupons and of course NKOTB!

Gettin it done

Look at me being productive today! Well I worked for a few hours this morning…

But then, I came home, made some food, watched tv, made some more food…

Watched the Broncos beat the red skins, did some homework, took some quizzes..

Watched the world series, watched the Kardashian’s, more quizzes done, watched the end of the world series..

Gathered almost all my socks and threw them in the washer…changed out the litter box, cleaned up Abbies messy corner, Took the trash out, now I’ve just started watching safe house, and plan to sort/fold one basket of clean laundry till the socks can go in the washer!

Ugggghhhh

Last night, i had so much motivation to get things done today. Today, not so much. At least I’ve gotten one load into the washer and took out some garbage.

I still need to vacuum and clean the carpet, clear off the coffee table, do dishes and clean the kitchen, change my bed sheets, clean the bunnies.. Sigh.

Oh and go to Jimmy johns before 3 for a $1 sub!

Oh and dawgfude broke a glass

And Ellie ate more underwear…
They’re driving me insane!

Wet bunny

Last night i did a deep cleaning of the bunny cage because i had discovered a gnat colony behind the cage /=

I did a volcano (cranky will know this term) to the pan and it came out beautiful!

I rearranged somethings to move their cage somewhere else, which means the cats tree is closer to the window.

image

I picked up amylase to check her, she gets poop clumps stuck on her underside and it was too much to cut off so i decided to give her a Bath in the kitchen sink.

I’ve had these bunnies for 11 years and never had to bathe them! She did surprisingly well! I doubt Chester would be so cooperative.

I towel dried her and put some neosporin on some red painful spots she had and also clipped her talons.

This am she was nice and dry and almost fluffy again!

Hoping the gnats dissipate today. Gonna vacuum some more and maybe get to cleaning the carpets.

I bought the girls new matching harnesses at Petsmart, Martha Stewart’s old line was on clearance for $4.97!

Ahhhhh!

I got a call this week that my landlord needs to inspect my Fire Alarm/CO2 detectors and provide me with a fire extinguisher per the HOA. (this will take all of 15 minutes)

shitballs.

So I have between now and Wednesday to get the following Unfucking done:

  • Dishes
  • Clean kitchen
  • Make it look like only 1 dog and 1 cat live here.. not the rest of the zoo.
  • Vacuum
  • Steam clean the carpets (see previous animal issue)
  • Clean the bathroom (actually isn’t that bad)
  • Clean off the fucking coffee table already!
  • Clear off the couch and adjacent chair
  • Move the boyfriends shit into the bedroom already and organize it
  • Do lots n lots of laundry
  • Hang lots n lots of laundry up
  • Clean the bunnies cage
  • I’d like to clean the car out, but that’s not an asap thing

What will interfere with all this?

  • Working 8-1 on Saturday am.
  • Attending 2 hour super party for Pachanga Sat 6pm-8pm
  • Working 7-11 on Sunday am
  • Baking cookies and brownies for school bake sale/fundraiser on Monday
    (i’ve made them, not baked them yet)
  • Sleeping
  • Walking the dogs, entertaining the dogs.
  • Oh tonight’s impending snow storm… again.
  • My over all lazy procrastinating self
  • Studying, making a table for Pharmacology
  • Make signs/organize things for Coupon Exchange board at school.
  • Updating twitter/facebook/blog/crowdtap, tumblr

So even though I’ve been up since 4am today, (I worked 5am-8am, then went to school from 9am-1pm) I may just make the cookies tonight, then frost them later this weekend. Clean the kitchen before I bake, and then as I go/during the process of dough chilling.

Everything feels like it’ll take forever. It won’t, well it will but its manageable if i break it down into sections, 20/10’s sometimes work, but sometimes 45/15’s work better because im not always done at 20.

I know in the end a clean house will = a clean mind and then ill be less overwhelmed/stressed about life and school.

Unfuckery on a Monday

I was a major slacker all weekend.
Really, I wanted to participate in the UFYH weekend, but my body thought otherwise, shark week’s a bitch man! Zapped all my energy and will to do anything aside from sit on the couch.

Tonight was a different story though.

Well today I started my first day at my Internship at the animal shelter. Lots of observing, helping, restraining, giving shots, cuddling cute puppies and kitties, watching dentals, and the worst part, seeing a beautiful husky be put down because of seizures \=

After 7 hours there..

I came home, unfucked my Federal Taxes and sent off my state ones for a friend to look over before I submit them.

While watching new episodes of Hoarders and Intervention, I managed to clean off half of the dining table, which was just enough room for me to study for tomorrows Pharmacology test and A&P 2 quiz. I think I spent an hour and a half studying? Not sure it flew by pretty quickly. Could have been less.

Then I cleaned the dreaded litter box! Yay i’ll have happy kitties.

Once that was done, I got up, put all the dishes in the dishwasher, made dinner, yum spinach and cheese raviolis!, then put those dishes in the dishwasher, and turned it on!

Made my Passion Tea Lemonade for tomorrow, even slightly cleaned off the coffee table. Mostly random paperwork that could be thrown away, receipts, expired coupons, etc. Still more to be done there, but im not pushing the subject.

Took the trash bag out of the can, tied it up, and set a bunch of stuff by the door to be taken out in the morning.

Tomorrows mission: The black mark on the linoleum by the front door, thats been there since i moved in… September of 2010… lol

Just spent 2 hours unfucking the kitchen.

Did dishes
Rearranged counter top to fit new keurig
Somehow seems I have more space now
Even cleaned UNDER the oven top part that holds the burners.
Also going to go buy new what are they called? The
things that sit under the burners to catch stuff..
Cuz mine are beyond cleaning. Already threw them out.
Even swept and mopped!
Set out more cockroach gel
Threw out 4 boxes of cereal because I don’t want to risk seeing bugs.
Cleaned the top of the fridge and inside cabinet above it.
Cleaned dog and cat food holders/bowls. Ew gross.
Took out 2 bags of trash.

Still need to finish up laundry including putting it away.
Maybe if I have time, re vacuum the living room.

I think the man will be surprised and happy with my progress!

My reward is going to see New Years Eve with some of the New Kids girls tonight!

1st Official Unfucking!

Tonight, since I was carless (its getting the water pump replaced) I decided to get on the Unfucking train since CrankyPants has already beaten me to it!

Before and After’s

I even did the unthinkable. Cleared out some of my closet for the man. Even set a side a big bag to go to Goodwill tomorrow. GO ME! He has about 1/4 of the closet and a drawer to use lol .

That’s enough unfucking of housework for tonight.
Moving on to homework now, last 2 finals tomorrow!

They’re going down!

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before that our building has a cockroach problem.

This morning I grabbed a box of Cocoa Krispies for breakfast and a CR was clinging to the outside bottom of it. So I squished him.

I opened the box and another came out.

I threw the krispies, screamed, and promptly left the kitchen.

I’ve had enough. The cats don’t even bother to kill them anymore.

So I went online, found some coupons, and headed to target and bought these.

Today will consist of unfucking the kitchen and placing baits and gel.

Tomorrow we’re going to caulk all seams in the kitchen.
Monday ill be sending my receipts to the leasing company to get reimbursed.

I’m pretty sure everyone of my neighbors could benefit from this.

Unfuck Your Habitat

What is UfYH?

What is Unfuck Your Habitat? And why should you do it? Well, our tagline is: “Terrifying motivation for lazy people with messy homes.” But it’s so much more than that. Yes, it involves some yelling and swearing. Yes, I will call you lazy if the situation warrants it. But, it’s about motivation, and support, and accountability. There’s a weird sort of void in the “taking care of your physical surroundings” stuff, in the archaic “how to keep a home” and “how to be domestic” arenas. It tends to ignore single people, or people without kids, or students, or people with pets, or people with roommates, or people with full-time jobs, or classes, or other shit going on. It assumes everyone is married with kids and one partner is around a lot of the time, and has a lot of time to devote to “housekeeping.” Well, we don’t all live that life. Very few of us do. Our lives are complicated and sometimes messy, and we’re often distracted and overwhelmed and lazy. Yeah, I said it. We’re lazy. There’s no real shame in that, but it’s something to overcome, at least temporarily. Because no matter what our situations are, we deserve better than to live in filth. We deserve to live somewhere with nice things we love, and to have a clean, calm place to be, when we’re not at work or school or any of the fifty zillion other places we go.

And our homes aren’t the only things that need to be unfucked. Our finances, our jobs, our relationships: there’s no end to the things we can fuck up. The important thing to remember is that there is nothing that can’t be unfucked. You just have to do it. You just have to overcome the compulsion to sit on the couch, on the computer, watching TV, and get up and do SOMETHING. Anything. So, Unfuck Your Habitat is about lighting a fire under all of our asses. Because when we accomplish something, especially something that seemed impossible, it feels awesome.

If you’re not into it, or not ready to do it, that’s cool. We’ve all been there, where intertia has us almost unable to make changes in our lives. But the whole point of this is that it isn’t hard. It’s almost never hard, and it’s almost never as big of a job as it seems. It’s just a matter of getting started.

So jump in. Cruise through the archives for some truly amazing before and after pictures. Don’t worry about catching up. This is about doing what you can, when you can. 5, 10, 20 minutes at a time. And then back to your normal life.

 

Awesome sauce. For reals. I do good with threats so this may actually help. Last night when I was reading this in bed the post came up. TAKE OUR YOUR TRASH. RIGHT NOW. EVERYTHING IN YOUR HOME THAT IS TRASH, TAKE IT OUTSIDE. If i wasn’t in bed and it wasnt 12 degrees outside, I totally would have done it right then and there.

Get’er Done Saturday!

Its de-un-cluttering day woohoo!

I got a good 11 hours of sleep last night, yes I went to bed at 7pm on a Friday, but granted i’d been up since 4:30 am so its all good.

This morning i got up and went to Pachanga, had a good work out, I almost stayed for the 2nd class, but decided not to *shrugs*

Stopped by Petco on the way home to get some bunny food, im pissed that no one carries the kind i’ve bought for years. So now i have to get smaller bags that cost more w.t.f.

Just got out of the shower so I need a quick snack and then on to cleaning! Gotta work on the living room, bedroom (pile of clean laundry), wash some dirty laundry, and maybe take the girls to the park later if I have time.

Stopped by work on my way home too and they have me scheduled to work TUESDAY 5:30am for a shipment, normally its friday. Thanks for even ASKING if I could. What if I was still in school this week eh?! I’m not, but thats besides the point ya know. Luckily though I DONT work on black friday! w000000h0000! that means I can go shopping! (if my mom sends money like she said she would). I need to check the ad’s cuz I want a new bigger tv (=

I’ve still gotta figure out how to come up with the remaining $300 for my cruise payment this month. Hmph.

K i’m gonna upload the pics from yesterday and then on to cleaning!
