I have made some progress on the kitchen, even though I wasn't listening to an audiobook because my phone needed charging. I took a break to run to the grocery store, and now I'm eating dinner.

Damn, it's humid. the weather forecasters said that it was supposed to cool off today, and maybe it has (yep, 66 degrees F), but it's still freaking humid (93 percent). I've been dripping sweat all day. I'm tempted to take a shower before I go to sleep, but it might disturb my neighbors.

I want to do a few more things in the kitchen, but want to go to sleep relatively early because I want to go to the Route 66 museum in Pontiac tomorrow. And the Route 66 display in Towanda if I can find it this time.

I did go the coffee shop. I bought a large iced chai, and read half of a book by the founder of Messies Anonymous (yes, that's really a thing) about reasons why people become "messies". She said that readers won't have all of the reasons. Guess again--I have almost ALL of them. I haven't gotten to the part of the book about how to dig out though. She has a separate book about organizing techniques.

At least part of the problem is that I get so BORED with cleaning and organizing. When I'm done here, I'm going to 1) do Pomodoro sessions on the kitchen, and 2) listen to audiobooks while I clean. (I keep wanting to say "books on tape". Yes, I'm old.)

I also went for a walk, starting in downtown Lincoln. I went to check out a park, and then kept on walking until the houses stopped and the street turned. Probably a little over a mile?

At the coffee shop, I noticed that one of the part-time workers sent me a text asking me to sign her timesheet for her. I meant to stop by work on the way home, but forgot. Said a choice word, and drove back and signed them. I was feeling a little cranky about having to go there though.

I just looked to see if there are any "messies" groups in the area, but they're all in cities.

I'm feeling a little down on myself, but don't know why. I 1) took Harlee to the vet, 2) did some personal development (reading), 3) exercised, and 4) started laundry. I guess that it's just that I feel like my entire life is two steps forward and one step back.

I've been cleaning in spurts based on the Pomodoro Technique. Basically, you set a timer and work 25 minutes, and then take a five-minute break. After four sessions, you take a longer break. It seems to be helping, although I have to admit to watching the timer near the end of a session.

I've been tackling the office, which sorely needs it. It's kind of overwhelming.
