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.
