Adjusting to New Hours

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — admin @ 6:06 am

I have just moved and now adjusting to my new schedule. Quite a dramatic change from leaving anytime in the morning for twenty minute bus ride to 90 minute scheduled train ride. Oh yeah and waking up at 5:15! So how have I made adjustments. Waking up is the hardest part but when the alternative to missing my express train is adding another 35 minutes motivation kicks in. The key is to get organized the night before. Contacts for morning out, shirt and pants selected, bag packed, keys and wallet where I expect them to be, and iPhone charged. This allows me to sleep in a bit longer and not be thinking about it all night. Oh and we have a four month old! All aboard!

Getting Organized When Unpacking

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — admin @ 6:22 am

I just had an experience of going thru boxes packed and stored seven years ago in my garage. When going thru the boxes and weeding out I found it useful to make piles based on keeping out, removing, donating and garbage. Also these were packed in boxes and some mice scratched the box to where dust and dirt got in the box, not to mention smell. Definitely switching to plastic totes on repack and garage storage. Next up storage overhead units purchased from www.storageoverhead.com to hold the totes and keep away from rodents. It is all coming together.
