still cleaning up

I’ve ran scan upon scan and it appears I get to back up all my items from my computer and wipe it out completely. Then I have to reinstall the system. I’m wondering if I have a backup that’ll do that for me without messing up anything too badly. I’m not even sure if my backups will work.

I’m wondering how a child that has to have everything in its place can make such a mess. I’ve been boxing up things to donate that don’t fit the kid or us and that we don’t use anymore. I have a bunch of boxes by the front door but no way to stop and unload them just yet. It’s going to take a few trips when I finally get it all boxed up.

I read a chapter out of “Thinking in Pictures” today. I’m reading a couple pages a day out of “Wife No. 19” (it’s a rather long book that’s taking me a bit of time. I started reading my bible for the first time in years a few days ago. A few chapters a day. I’m going to review the first two books when I get through reading them. I have an article in mind for all this cleaning out that I’ve been doing lately.

Theresa has decided she likes “The Cat in the Hat” So I’m going to see if I can find her a few of the shows on DVD. I’m going now to open a sky something or other account and back up items to it. I’m going to delete some more files that I don’t need, want and can’t use again if I want to. OK I’ll be back later with more annoying updates.

Cleaning Up a Bit

I’ve been cleaning up a bit today but I still managed to get a little and I mean a very little done around the house today. I managed to get a little bit of work done today just a few short articles. I’ve been running scans and removing programs I don’t use and haven’t used since they were installed. My computer is running faster already and I’m no where near done with the scans and the cleanup. In fact there is a scan running in the background right now. When it finishes I’m going to remove a few more programs and delete some files I don’t want before I do another disk clean up and run another scan. I’m not thinking of it as losing time I could be working I’m thinking of it as decreasing the time it takes me to get things done.

It’s amazing what you can accomplish while you’re waiting on a computer to be scanned and cleaned out. I managed two loads of laundry, mostly made dinner and poured up the rest of my laundry detergent in a one gallon container. I also managed to make a five gallon bucket of laundry soap that should make ten gallons in the end. It’s got double the cleaning ingredients so I should be able to use it half and half by pouring it in a re-purposed vinegar bottle.

I found the time to weigh myself I’ve lost 4 pounds since the year started. I found a number of tiny and not so tiny do it yourself projects that need to be done around here while I was cleaning up today. I’ll get into those as I get to them. I don’t plan to have them take very long and I don’t plan to spend a lot of money to get them done.
