I’m busy this morning…..cleaning!!
My new bed is being delivered between 10AM and 1PM…so must get everything cleaned up in bedroom. All the clothes that I’ve accumulated on the dresser and doorknobs, the shoes in front of the closet instead of in it… AND vacuum!
The dust that accumulates behind a bed is pretty incredible. This is honestly the first time in a month that I’ve had the energy to get the vacuum out…and actually use it!
I don’t know these delivery people at all but I would die of embarrassment if they came in and seen the mess. Maybe I’ll be able to have company again once I’ve done this cleaning…..that would be nice. I’ve been afraid to let people in just because I was afraid that they’d think I’d really gone over the edge. I honestly have done pretty much nothing except load/unload the dishwasher and do laundry and that was only because I needed both, clean dishes and clothes! Kind of a scary slump to get into.
Because we have a narrow staircase with a turn, they will have to bring the mattress up the back stairs and through the patio doors…through the dining room, living room and down the hallway, so essentially these guys will have to traipse all through my house to get the mattress and box spring to the bedroom.
This is certainly motivation to get some of this housework done!
It’s just after 8AM and I’ve already washed two duvets and have them hanging out in the sun, vacuumed the dining room and hallway….. and dusted all the bedroom furniture.
Maybe, just maybe, this will get me back into the groove of keeping my house clean, or at least tidy. I really do hate mess but just haven’t cared that much, or truthfully, at all for the last little while. That was a bit of a worry….I could understand me being like that for the first couple of weeks, but it’s been over a month.
So today I’m hoping, really hoping, that my mad cleaning woman mode will last for a few days so I can muck my way out of this mess and get back to an acceptable new normal(ish). And then, of course, more important…..keep my house that way!! Another challenge….
Wish me luck!
