Todd Rundgren's "Bang the Drum" is not the most inspiring of music choices, for cleaning.

Yes, here it is Friday, and I have achieved remarkably little on the list I set out for myself a week ago.

Lets take a closer look:

1) *in process* Do Disaster Relief Response on my bedroom- I really do think that is the best analogy, at this point, I don't think it has ever been quite this crazy before- which includes:

a. *in process* laundry, lots and lots of laundry
b. finding homes (somewhere in my room, that is- I am not giving things away!) for all clothing, books, CDs, etc., that are lying around
c. hang bulletin boards
d. possibly hang canopy netting and other things that require hanging (this will require assistance from a fully able-bodied person who is familiar with tools)
e. put new light bulb in overhead light
f. give or throw away obsolete clothing
g. create workable office-type space at desk

2) Find a way to get my DVDs and VHSs organized-ish in the library so things can be found on whim

3) Get myself acquainted with the ways of wordpress.com

4) Post on wordpress.com

5) Do some Palestine activism planning with [livejournal.com profile] whereisjoy, and related research

6) **feelers out** Find suitable decorations for Habibi's "Star Trek: The Toddler Generation" birthday party in two weeks (the theme was not my idea!)

7) Do more research on this whole doula thing- I've been advised that, as someone who does have a physical disability, being a birth doula might not work very well, but that there is even more need for post-partum doulas than birth doulas

8) Go spend a couple days at my dad's, finishing cleaning out my childhood bedroom, so he can start thinking about maybe selling the house

9) *sad, no dog playing* While there, play with dogs

10) Catch up on work for my Tuesday night classes, that I got behind on from being sick basically from Halloween to New Year's

So I suppose its not too bad, especially considering I had a pain flare-up in the middle of the week. I'll stop feeling guilty. The most important thing to do next week is #10. I'll have to reschedule with my dad for later in the month.

At any rate, now my iPod is on "We Built This City (with Rock and Roll)", so that helps the cleaning spirit. I might just have to break down and put on my ABBA CD, which is, I believe, hands-down the best cleaning music ever.
