Today I am resting up from a marathon of cleaning yesterday. I am not much of a housekeeper, which I have admitted freely in the past. When I left a couple of weeks ago for baby arrivals, I had to leave the house unvacuumed, undusted, unmopped, etc. due to a knee injury. Wonder of wonders, the housekeeping police did NOT arrive in my absence and cite me for nastiness.
TBO went to east Texas yesterday for a meeting and I decided that I would do all the above in one day. Now, I am generally opposed to doing that much manual labor on any given day, but I felt the opportunity had presented itself and I should avail myself of it. Also, I only had the unairconditioned Volvo at my disposal, which made leaving less of an option.
I also had a grand plan of action. I would do one set of "work", then I would watch one episode of "The West Wing". I had enough to do that I made it through 8 episodes yesterday. Now, that may surprise you, but I actually finished all of my list about episode 5! The rest of the day was spent recovering with ice on my knee, back and elbow. The old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be.
Anyway, it was lovely to go to bed with fresh sheets last night. And especially marvelous to awaken to clean floors and no giant dust bunnies peering at me from the night stand. If I recover from my frenzy, I'll try to get back on my schedule of cleaning so I don't have to do this again!
