Quick Report: Finishing What I Started

A couple of weeks ago I started cleaning my bathroom. It was mostly just dusting but it wasn’t all I had to do in there. After spending the last week dealing with weird dreams that threw me off in the day (the third time that’s happened this month–please God let me be over it) and a couple bouts of insomnia I spent yesterday finishing the dusting and cleaning the tub.

Today I’ll be changing the DVR box to the new one. I didn’t get to watch everything I wanted but I got the most important stuff. If I can still use it as storage without it being tied to the cable company any more it would be nice to watch the rest before sending it to the recycler but as this posts I won’t know if that’s possible. Hopefully they’re movies and episodes I can pick up again in the future. We’ll see how that goes.

I did manage to read through some of my email backlog on the days my brain was working. That’s some victory.

I also hope to put some more comics up on the comics for sale section during the week on top of some other projects (including stuff I was too out of it to do last week despite being the reason I took a week off from my other site…because of course that’s when it happened) and get myself back on track. I want to really start learning how to use various software, update various videos on my YouTube channel while copying old ones to a back-up host, and finally pushing forward instead of struggling to keep up. On top of that I have to lose some weight and finally do a little living. We’ll see how that goes, too.

So that’s all I have to report this week. With luck I’ll have a more interesting discussion next week but this is also a journal of my de-cluttering journey.

Quick Report: DVRed Again

So this week I was supposed to get more dusting done. It seems the universe continues to hold me back whenever possible and using my media addictions against me. We ordered a new DVR box from the cable company but that means losing all the recordings we have. So I’ve had to push through what I can versus what won’t repeat again and can’t find online. Even then there are movies and shows I’m not going to finish. It’s annoying but since our current box won’t record or pause live video…you know, the reasons you get a DVR box in the first place, there’s not much I can do about that. Our old cable company (seen above because I don’t have pictures of the current company’s boxes in the media library for this site) stored on the cloud, which is better for us, probably not for the cable company.

So I guess that’s a bit of clutter gone whether I want it to or not. Less distraction. Now if I could just get caught up on everything else.
