First of all I’d like to thank everyone who congradulated Lord Hill and I on our anniversary. We had a fabulous time. Our long weekend turned into a 5 day vacation but there will be a separate post to tell that story.
Today I want to talk about Spring Cleaning.
I’ll be honest. I have never really been a fan, nor have I understood why everyone seems to “like” cleaning once the weather gets nice. I always want to spend as much time outside as possible and cleaning is basically the opposite of that. So imagine my surprise when I woke up today on the nicest day we’ve had all year and thought to myself “well, this would be a nice day to tidy up a bit”
And tidy up I did.
Yesterday Lord Hill and I returned over $12 worth of bottles and cans. This helped jump start my want/need to reclean the kitchen as I had totally let it go since my last post showing my nice clean kitchen with my nice shiny sink. I wound up completely cleaning the kitchen including the floors, the fridge, and the cabinets. I put the dishes away, and set up a nice centerpiece on the table. I took everything that didn't belong in the kitchen and put it away.
Then I moved on to my office which is between my kitchen and living room. It's more like a hallway with a desk in it. It has been a total disaster for a long time now. I completely cleaned it today. I wound up finding things from my wedding which as I pointed out last week was 2 years ago!! What is wrong with me?? Anyway, I put it all away and cleaned up and did the floors and got everything that didn't belong in there and put it away. I even cleaned my desk and dusted my monitor.
On to the bathroom.
Toilet done. Sink done. Floors done. Mirrors done.
Rugs - vacuumed. Couch - cleaned, cleared and fluffed. Table - cleared, wiped down, dusted, and given a nice little center piece.
Oh, also, my bed is made for the first time in MONTHS. The bedroom is still a disaster area but that's okay. I know I can take care of that if I can do the rest of the apartment in just one day.
It feels AMAZING. We even had company come over tonight and there was nothing to worry about! I had even lit some candles earlier and used air freshener and was 100% confident having guests over.
Keep an eye out for my next big accomplishment!
