First Day

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!

  16. So glad to have found you! I just found Nony the slob myself. I didn’t realize you and I were kindred spirits too!!! I’m just starting out my blog+Deslobificaton so hopefully I stick with it. I’m so nervous that I might fail at this too. 😦
    Nice to meet you!

    • I’m so glad you found me too! Nony is absolutely the best!! The “slob” in my name didn’t give you a clue? haha 😉
      You will!! It’s hard, but just do a little something every day. Be like Nony- just do the dishes! Do what I say, not what I actually do! hee hee
      Nice to meet you too.
      Have you gotten her book yet?? I love having a paper and ink copy of her blog to read!! But then I loaned it to my (slob) sister, so I will probably never lay eyes on it again! lol

      • I bought her audiobook last Thursday and finished listening to it by the next day. I was THAT into it. I saw that you bought her ebook but after listening to her audio book I just went to her very 1st blog post (Aug 2009) and have been reading about 8 hours a day the least 3 days. (Is know. Crazy right? ) I’m now in April 2010 and really inspired to make my own monumental changes.

        And yes, when I was searching for similar blog pages I typed in the word slob and yours came up. I didn’t get a chance to stalk you totally yet but had a feeling you’re just like me. 🙂

      • Nope, not crazy, I binge read too! Kinda like I’m doing with you right now!! lol
        Yes, I got her ebook, but then I got her real book, soon after it came out. I like to read better than listen.
        Cool!! That tickles me so much, that you found me on Google!!
        Haha, stalk away!! So far, we sound a TON alike!! (I’m a large lovely lady too.)

  18. I need to be like this! I am drowning in clutter in my office (sounds posh but it used to be the garage 🙂 I just cannot get motivated to start because I can’t make decisions about what to keep and what can go. Arhhhhhhh! So well done to you for getting the motivation. I’m jealous. 🙂
