[[Today I am thankful for a clean house.]]
Of course last night I was feeling so sick (and still am). I went to bed before 10pm (can't remember the last time I did this!) feeling achy and my throat was so sore. The boys woke me up at 6:30 (omg so minus the time change we'd have slept in until 7:30!!) and I managed to crawl myself out of bed, get them breakfast and clean the kitchen/dining room and do the dishes. I plopped a movie on tv for them and fell asleep on the couch. Somewhere around there Ryan woke up and let me sleep until 11am. Much needed!!
I again managed to get off the couch to clean the entire first floor and basement. I get into these modes where everything is driving me nuts... every speck of dust and dirt mark and scuff is just blaringly obvious to me in these modes. And despite feeling like crud today I was in a mode and just had to clean EVERYTHING. I was on my hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen floor, sweeping the foyer and living room, vacuumed all the stairs and the entire first floor and basement, did some laundry, wiped down the walls and the doorways where fingerprints were EVERYWHERE, and dusted the living room. Ugh. One bad thing about having kids and pets is the house is NEVER clean. It drives me nuts! And of course it was sunny today so the sun was blaring through the windows illuminating every speck of dust in the air. GAHHH!
I feel better now knowing that my house is somewhat clean. One of these days I pray I can afford a housecleaner to come every other week and do a thorough cleaning. Top to bottom, crack to crevice.
But for today, I'm thankful to have the house respectably clean and ready for another week of chaos.
