Project Complete

Monday, August 17th, 2009

I completed my project of the week on Wednesday last week. Midweek church service was unexpectedly canceled due to a death. I had the night free, and I went for it. I’m still sorting through little slips of paper and notes I have written myself, but the organizing and the polishing of the desk is […]

Project of the Week: Clean the desk!

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

It’s sad to officially term this a project, but I really need to get the other 2/3 of my desk clean. It hasn’t happened just saying I need to do it, so now it’s a project. I have until Saturday night. I’d better stop typing and go…

Project Complete

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

I finished cleaning under the computer desk. It looks very neat and organized. Now the only official project that I haven’t completed is the one someone else is helping me with. I should find another project for this week, but I’ll probably skip that until next week.

Another Failed Project

Friday, October 10th, 2008

We are now planning on spending Saturday helping my father-in-law move instead of insulating and finishing the garage wall. There is no time for another project this week (trust me, I’ve seen my schedule). I have next week off. We’ll see what I can manage then.

POW: Garage/Living Room Wall

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

I totally neglected last week’s project. I didn’t do a single thing to organize under the desk. That project will have to go back in queue. This coming Saturday, my father-in-law is supposed to be coming over to help me insulate and seal off a wall between my garage and my living room. Now the […]

POW: Organize Under Desk

Monday, September 29th, 2008

In case you didn’t catch it, last week’s project is complete. Now that I can access underneath the desk, this week’s project is to organize the multiple boxes and various objects I have down there (various computer stuff). I also need to organize/sort through the boxes that were moved out of the corner to make […]

POW: Back Room Corner

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

Project of the Week: Clean out the corner of the back room, the computer room, in preparation of moving my filing cabinet out from under my second desk. I will thereby by able to get under the second desk to use it for storage. Essentially it’s just moving things around and getting some of the […]

Handwash the Dishes

Monday, January 14th, 2008

This week I want to clean the dishes that need to be hand washed on a nightly basis…after supper (addended to meet the spirit of the project). I’ve wanted to try this for a while now, but something always distracts me. I usually end up doing the hand washables once a week (or so). Most […]

Unpublished Project: Clean the Office

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

Monday’s 12″+ of snow took some time away from the unpublished project I had planned for my New Year’s Day off. As you can see, it was quite an aggressive outline, considering I had the whole day off at home with my wife. I only got as far as the bolded work. Clean corner (can’t […]

Setting Up the Computer

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

Here’s a no-brainer post, and a good way to get back into the Project of the Week. This week’s goal is to set up the new computer. That means add the software I want it to have and delete the software I don’t. It’s already up and running and has Firefox installed (I’m posting from […]

POW Update

Thursday, January 26th, 2006

This week is so-so. On the computer front, my new harddrive arrived on Tuesday but I couldn’t install it because I didn’t have the program disks that “come” with a computer. My computer was purchased Frankensteinian from Eric. I picked the program up last night, but decided to wait until my day off on Monday […]

Project of the Week (POW): Jan 23, 2006

Monday, January 23rd, 2006

I guess I unofficially started doing Projects of the Week last week when I started tackling my disorganized garage. That has been mostly taken care of now. I just have to set the curbside recycling out on the first Tuesday of next month. Also, the redemption center was closed last Saturday so I couldn’t return […]
