I’ve been reading Nony, from A Slob Comes Clean, for about a month now. She has motivated me to get my butt in gear. Sunday night, Monday morning!, I bought her 2 e-book set. Drowning in Clutter, Drain the Ocean, and 28 Days to Hope in Your Home. Of course, being me, I read them immediately. Then, I got up and emptied the dw. DH was so excited when he opened it Mon. morning and saw it empty. Then I got really CRAY-CRAY, and while he took the grand baby, Pudding Pop, for her morning walk, I swept and mopped the living room. My back hurt, and I was huffing, and puffing. Yes, and sweating too.
But, it only took me approximately 10 minutes, start to finish, including moving the toys. Then I sat down, and basked in the glow of a job well down. And basked all day! And posted about it copiously on FB. and private messaged everyone who didn’t comment on my post. I’m so needy for approval. Then I decided to start this blog, to look back on my accomplishments, and brag on myself!
Actually, I’ve been working on cleaning up for longer than just 1 day. After I got out of Physical Therapy Rehab, June 5, I started getting the itch to have a house that was nice. Not pristine, magazine level, no one can touch anything, just nice. So, I began going thru boxes, and getting rid of stuff. It felt good to see those 3 boxes of donations, 1 box for consignment, and 13 gallons of trash leave out the door! We straightened up the living room, and began having people over, well, family. Then I even had the nerve to have Pudding Pop’s first birthday party here! Everything looked really good.
I have sewn 1 curtain for the living room, now I need to do 1 more. And wait for DH to put up the rods.
If I continue to help with the dishes, and sweep and mop every day, he’ll soon be putty in my hands!
