I was able to get a lot of cleaning done yesterday. I also got creative with dinner, and put together a new meal. I used to love trying out new ideas in the kitchen. It felt really good to be doing that last night. It turned out pretty good. I washed dishes four times. The “me” I have been missing for so long is starting to come back. I’m going to take a break from cleaning this morning, and go check on my parent’s house. I need to see if they had any storm damage.
We had a big storm go through here yesterday. Our little town had a lot of damage. Luckily, my house is fine. There’s a lot of debris in the yard, but nothing that can’t be taken care of easily. A couple of neighbors had large tree limbs fall down, and there are trees down in a couple of yards.
I’m establishing a routine of things I have to do in the morning. Yesterday, I woke up and ate breakfast and took my medicine. That was done easily, but I had to force myself to do it today. I’m not one to eat breakfast as soon as I wake up. I usually wait a few hours. With my medicine, I have to eat immediately in order to take my pill. After that, I sit down at the computer to write up my blog post. When I’m done with this, I’ll go get dressed and then wash up the few dishes that are in the sink.
Tomorrow, I’d like to make up a list of things to do for the day. This weekend, I’d like to sit down and make a daily list for a week. I’ve been thinking about the hall bathroom project that I started a year ago, but didn’t finish. The walls need to be painted, and I haven’t been in the mood to do it. Now, I have been wanting to get in there and get it done. I just need to have my husband get me some paint rollers in order for me to do that. I have everything else I need.
I’d like to do some serious clearing of stuff that I’ve collected in all the rooms in my house. Things that I don’t need, but I haven’t been able to get rid of. I had a little problem with my husband, yesterday, when he got home and found an old desk sitting out in the carport. Also, I had put a box of camping supplies out there, and he wasn’t happy about that. They had been in the dining room, taking up space. I was working hard to get that room cleaned, and organized. The box and desk were in my way. I didn’t want to put them in another room, since that would have just been moving clutter into another area of the house. In the end, he was alright with what I did. He understood my reasons, and he did like the results of getting them out of the house.
It’s time for me to get go get dressed, and then go wash dishes. I’m feeling really energetic today. I had a great night’s sleep, and am looking forward to getting a lot done today.
