Welcome to June! The guidelines for WIT are simple:
- Do some little thing to make your house less squalorous. ☝️
- Do one more little thing.
- Do another little thing.
- Once you have 3 things done, post them here!
- Post the next 3 things you plan on doing.
- Go forth and conquer, return and post again.
- You aren't required to do the 3 things you had planned on -- just get any 3 things done and then post proudly.
Remember - if you are tired or sick or injured or depressed or overwhelmed,
or just need to break your tasks down into something manageable, you are in the right place!
If the next 15 minutes consists of:
- Looked at hopeless living room and felt like crying 😢
- Decided you could take empty pop can to kitchen
- Put away book 📚
- Picked up fast food wrappers on coffee table and put them in trash
. . . YOU HAVE ACHIEVED THREE-DOM !!!
You could post:
- Took pop can to kitchen
- Put away phone book
- Threw away McDonald's wrappers
Then your To-Do's:
- Bring plates and glasses to kitchen
- Put dirty socks in hamper
- Bring folded towels to linen closet and put away.
Whether you do those 3 to-do's, or something completely different, once you've gotten 3, come back and post.
Remember to take breaks and drink water. Drinking water counts as a Ta-da!
If you can notice what the person before you did, it might cheer them up to hear from you.
Go forth, have fun, and be generous to yourself with the Ta-das.
YOU DESERVE THEM!

I took less breaks, so worked more.
Detached rails from bed
turned the rails around so the one that's cracked is on the not me side.
Reattached the rails. Positioned the bed.
Decided to go ahead and rewire the lamp. I needed to do this before I put the mattress back on the bed, so that I could get the cord up on the nails on the baseboard behind the headboard, so it's easier to dust under the bed.
At one point I had bought Kmart lamp shades. They attached below the light bulb and the light bulb held them in place. I had bought regular lamp shades at a light store. The lamp by my bed needed to be rewired, so I could put the harp back on. I took the wrapping off the lampshades. Dusted everything in the bedroom. Set up the lamps.
