Project Clean Condo on temporary hiatus

September 5, 2011

I have been having some health issues, and will need to put my Clean Condo Project on hiatus for now.  I will post more about it once the project is resumed.

HOWEVER, the LABOR DAY SALE is still going on. Click the link for UncleNathan’s Free Store for details.

Thanks for reading my blog.

Labor Day special coming to the UncleNathan Free Store!

September 4, 2011

The Mothership.

Having gotten up late due to a late night meetup last night, and spent much of my morning fiddling around, I then proceeded to get a migraine headache.  Thus I have decided to take the penalty stroke on today’s activity, and regroup tomorrow.  Thankfully Monday is a holiday, and I don’t have any plans with my remaining Chicago peeps.  Naomi is in New Buffalo with the family, and I didn’t get around to setting up much else, unless you count online hangouts (which I do!).

So in honor of me working on a cleaning project on Labor Day, I am pleased to announce that tomorrow only, the UncleNathan Free Store will be offering an additional set of items.  These specialty items will only be available between the hours of 10 AM and 5 pm on Labor Day.  If an item isn’t claimed, then it will be sold on eBay, instead of offered for free to a friend.  (There is a limit to the patience of the co-proprietor of my Free store!)

So check back at 10 AM (central time) to find out the amazing deals on offer.

Have a great Labor Day!

A man.  His dog.  His car.  Some open roads.  Sunshine.  Ikea.  Health and contentment.

The weekly plan on a whiteboard (analog version). Note that I referenced Hope's no boxes plan with her logo. No Box(es)

Some pics of my desk area and my setup as I go along.  Is it possible this blogging thing is slowing me down?  Am I blogging more than cleaning?

Touchpad + Bluetooth Speaker = Music Nirvana

Using my new HP Touchpad in combo with my bluetooth speaker to keep some good music going while I unplug my pc(s).  Just relocated the router so I still can use Wifi.

First post attempt from my smartphone. Before pic of desk area.

This is what I’ll refer to as my desk area.  It is a small, but crap-filled corner of my living room.  By tonight,  my plan is to have all the crap sorted.  Papers go in a box for later review.  Random other stuff without a proper home gets another box.  If I don’t need it, it will either get trashed out put in a box for my epic yard/sidewalk sale.  (I don’t have a yard.)
Apologies to all that my previous post want being seen a intended.  Working to fix that.  Got several complaints that it was boring.  Then just realized that other readers were not seeing what I could see when I read it.  (Thanks WordPress!)  I’ll try to fix all that and make it more exciting.
Thanks for sticking with it!

Project Clean Condo Calendar of Events

September 1, 2011

Here is the beginning of my project calendar.  It is still a work in progress, but overall I have a plan in my mind that I will continue to document.  First area to tackle will be the Desk Area of the Living Room.  I will be cleaning the area, unplugging all the devices, getting rid of my old desk, and then getting the parts to make the new standing desk at Ikea.
