Missyjack posted a rec to this the other day.  The name of the site intrigued me. I mean really, what isn't intriguing about a site called  "Unfuck Your Habitat"?   (And I also love the acronym for the site UFYH.)

The simple foundation for this site is "MAKE YOUR BED!"   Ha!   Weirdly enough this was actually something I was trying to adopt myself starting a few months ago.   Yes, I confess, I'm one of those folks who has trouble thinking about making the bed first thing in the morning because a) I am SO NOT a morning person (historically, that appears to be somewhat changing) and b) by the time I get back from work I'll just mess it up again by getting back inside it and c) no one will be around to see it because we are all at work or at school all day (of course when the bed is not made on the weekends, that logic does not hold up.)    It's not that I never make the bed, but let's just say that it's hit and miss.

But I kept remembering my sainted (not ;P, but much loved) grandmother telling me that she always made her bed because it made such a difference in how her home looked.  And she was not necessarily as neat as a pin overall.   I randomly recalled this a few months ago and thought to give it a try.   So bed was made more often, but still somewhat hit and miss.

It's only been a few days and so habits have not yet formed - but after reading this site I feel more motivated to, as they say, unfuck my space.   ;P    So bed is made each morning as soon as I get out of it.   I've done a few 20/10s (as they call them) and very quickly was able to get the master bath and kitchen under control.   So I'm hopeful.

This is likely triggered by a bit of spring fever.   Which considering our weird-ass weather here (snow today, seriously?) is confused at best.  ;)

Have a great day everyone!


Edit:  Oh and btw?   I used their drain bomb (of vinegar and baking soda) on a bathroom sink the other day - that darn sink had been draining very slowly and I was so not looking forward to pulling out the stopper to investigate and clean out whatever was causing the problem (Ew!!)   It was so satisfying to see the volcano erupt from the sink and within seconds the drain was functioning beautifully.  ;)!!!

If I remember correctly SPN has gotten up to 3 million viewers in it's ratings right?  Well Battlestar Galactica S4 premiered this past Friday and the news is good for the show for it's ratings--but what's interesting is that those ratings showed 2.1 million viewers.  Which is less than SPN!  But considered good for BSG.  I wasn't really following BSG ratings like I followed SPN.  I had no doubt (for some reason) that BSG would continue to it's natural ending point.  But had been so paranoid the love-of-my-life-tv-show would end before it's time.  But according to this report, BSG's ratings are not as high as SPN.  Who'da thunk.

Tired.  Work is going well but is very, very busy.  I'm trying to take most (if not all) of next week off so am squeezing 2-weeks worth of activities and meetings into one week.  Ugh!  Plus I've got 2 major doctor appts this week as well.

Everyone is coming over here for Thanksgiving and I haven't even begun to think about that.  Probably won't until Tuesday.

Worked from home today.  Got a lot done.  But around 1pm my eyes got so cross-eyed from eye strain that I went out to lunch and mall for a couple of hours just to get myself away from the damn computer!  Was good--browsed at a book store.  Next best thing to the ocean for recharging my batteries.

Over lunch I finally opened up and started reading the book about the creation of the iPod.  Book is called "The Perfect Thing."  I really enjoyed the first 2 chapters.  The author uses the iPod to talk about how technology has changed and will change our lives.  And the iPod is symbolic of and (he claims) partly responsible for that change.  Given that I'm an iPod fanatic, an Apple fangirl, and I represent the embodiment of lot of his arguments--he may have a point.  Hopefully I can get over my ADD (induced by way of technology BTW) long enough to actually sit down and read a real book so I can finish this one. 

When I was leaving home to go to lunch I looked through my house for a "real" book to take with me to read over lunch.  I wanted a book that was silly, fun, maybe a little trashy.  Definitely not "serious."  I was bummed to see that most of the books I've purchased the last 2ish years are all "serious" books!  Nothing silly or trashy at all!  I guess that's because I do all my "relaxing" reading online.  I get my fix there.  I did have the SPN book Nevermore--but had already read it.  Didn't yet have Witch's Canyon (which BTW I bought at the bookstore I visited after lunch.)

/end musing, rambling, RL, whatever.
