Sleep hasn't fully returned to my life yet, but it's showing a little leg, so I'm hopeful. I've been awake all night, finally slept from 7-8am, which is the worst time. It makes you feel as though you've actually never slept in your life. Plus a bonus headache. That said, I've gone a little slow this morning. My accomplishments thus far:
-Rotated laundry (I feel betrayed that mine breeds as quickly as yours does).
-Did the dishes.
-Swept the kitchen floor.
-Scrubbed kitchen sink.
-Avoided jelly donuts on top of the refrigerator while I wiped it down.
-Cleaned out microwave.
After my appointment this morning, I plan to:
-Do away with all laundry.
-Fill dishwasher, run it, have Quinn unload it, give kitchen a late day wipe down.
-Keep an eye out. Things are okay right now, but one spoon in the sink, and my entire sense of balance will topple.
-Dare I say, and elicit laughter from around the world, junk drawer? I have dont this so many times, what is my problem? Perhaps I can do it while watching Dexter.
For my Moxlings this dreary Tuesday:
-First you will___________________.
-Wipe down you refrigerator, and before you can think about it, just start pulling out all the food. Wipe down all shelves, throw away anything speaking a foreign language (or speaking at all, really), and reload in a nice neat order. This is such a great feeling. It will motivate you to cook, and, if I have my druthers, it will motive you to clean more. Don't forget the top of the refrigerator. And get that clutter off, it's damaging your serenity, I promise.
-Clean out microwave. Pull the tray out, wipe all the shit out, run the tray through the dishwasher if you must (minus Sam and Megan :( ), then reassemble and pat yourself on the back.
-Finally, POST your progress, or lack thereof. I need to know which assignments are helpful, which ones are getting done, which ones aren't, what I need to threaten you with to get them done, and what, if anything, is working.
Remember, my goal isn't to infuse my insanity into your head, nor set impossible standards. My goal is to help guide you in some maintenance, lest you ever feel like your entire house is insurmountable again. So speak up. :)
