So I need to do dishes soon. I have a dishwasher so it's not exactly a lot of manual labor, but there is some tedium involved as there are a lot of dishes to be done and kitchen-cleanery to be had.
I need to clean the living room and dining room. Really I need to rearrange things so that I can set up the bike and the weight bench better so that I am more motivated to exercise the way that I need to. I also want to stage space for working on the porch and the dining room ceiling.
I need to clean out the basement so that I have workspace to do the fun projects that I want to do so that I don't have to take over the living room anymore.
I need to replace the whole-house water filter.
I need to clean out the studio.
I need to clean out the Room Where No One Walks.
These last two involve a lot of getting rid of *stuff* that's not necessarily toxic, but isn't something that most places will accept as trash. There's a lot of electronics stuff that I need to dispose of, and there's a lot of small household stuff that's perfectly fine but unused.
The problem is motivation. I want to do it-- rather, I want to have it done-- but the actual doing is something that does not happen. I'd be marvelous as procrastinating if I didn't put it off so much.
It's all a little overwhelming. Or a lot overwhelming. I think once you've reached the stage where it's overwhelming, it doesn't matter how much beyond that it is, it's saturation.
I know I should just take it one piece at a time, do small bits here and there. I know it, and yet I don't do it.
Part of it is being cold. When it's cold in the house, I don't feel like doing anything other than huddling under the covers. But it's not cold all the time, and that's only part of an excuse. The big part is that it's a lot of work, and I don't wanna do it.
