Good Quote: One thing I've finally learned is that, in a new place, it's worthwhile to fix all the things that annoy you as soon as you can. On the TV "home staging" shows, a recurring theme is that something was broken when the owners moved in, or they hated the previous owner's wallpaper, but put up with it for years and years, until they wanted to sell the house. Then they changed it just in time to move out. OK in NY (formerly MA)
Spirits are high, which is great.
And it is also nice to see that from last week's survey
that many of you are working in the healthy zone. There is a really nice spread in this class. It gets tougher as we get to the middle. Things will want to intervene and throw you off track, set you back or take you away. Try to stay focused and if you do lose some time, don't sweat it, keep your feet moving and remember to list all the good things you've accomplished...
This Week's Assignment:
Last week you got inspired, this week you go to work. In the Deep Treatment
you are going to focus on the kitchen. You will declutter and clean your kitchen from the top down and then cook a meal you actually like! There are other smaller tasks as well, such as filtering your tap water and planning a housewarming, but the kitchen is your target.
Npoz1 is super organized! This is her blackboard wall with Cure list.
In the One Room Workout
, you will probably be focusing on another room in your home. At this point, your task is to arrange the room on paper to best meet your needs. Additionally, it is time to take your inspiration and crystallize it into your vision for the project. Remember, once you have a clear port to sail towards, the trip becomes much easier.
