Place 72 – Day 66: Vancouver, BC – Housework Mondays!

Curtis’ Day

The weather was perfect for walking to work today.

Curtis got to work, grabbed a coffee and got right to work. He had a few things planned to do from last week, so he did those and he also had a couple of messages from different people with either follow up questions or new questions he had to answer.

Some new tickets came in and Curtis sorted those out.

A delivery of cans of drink came in and Curtis just so happened to be getting coffee at the same time, so he put them away to help out.

After lunch, Curtis continued with some work and was quite busy. He had to order a new Macbook for someone and then it was already 15:00!

Curtis had a bit more to do, namely trying to resolve the wifi issues happening in the office in Charlotte.

It slowed down around 15:45 and Curtis did some project work to pass the time.

Kim’s Day

Kim got in and started on catching up on emails and just generally starting her week.

A little bit into the morning Kim decided to put a few orders in for some things like cutlery and printer stuff.

Kim then sat down with a colleague and organised some interviews and run through that process. It was good to have the refresher.

After scheduling the interviews Kim decided today was the day to clear our her desk, clean it and reorganise the whole thing! She emptied the top 2 draws and pulled everything off the desk. Then she went through everything, binned all the old things and things she didn’t need. She also put loads of stuff back in the stationary cupboards.

While Kim was doing this, the pizza arrived for a meeting so kim set that up and then set up for her other catering that was due to arrive around the same time. The meeting was being held on a differnt floor so Kim was asked to bring up some drinks. Midday rolls around and the food hadnt yet arrived, but sometimes people can be a few minutes late do Kim kept organising things but by 5 past she had to call as she was being chased by people who want their lunch. She called and was informed that the lunch would be another 25 minutes from then, making it roughly 40 minutes late. Kim kept herself busy but near the desk and once the food arrived she took it upstairs.

Kim then went on her lunch and when she got back from her lunch she started clearing out the stationary cupboard. It as super organised already, but reorganising gives Kim a good understanding of what should usually be in there and what needs to be ordered now.

Kim then started to draft up a stationary order alongside little random tasks.

Housework Monday

We got home and had some housework to do.

Curtis started by taking out the recycling and the organic waste. When he got back, we both decided we were hungry so we waited on the housework and made dinner.

We had a steak & sweet potato salad, which was pretty tasty but the steak wasn’t good quality.

After finishing dinner, we did the rest of the housework such as cleaning the kitchen and vaccuuming.

We played some games, watched some YouTube videos and some TV before hitting the hay.


This Time Last Year!
