It was a long weekend. A good one. I have tons to say, but I know I need to settle down to sleep. My clock will say 5:15, but my body will say 4:15. I dread this "Spring forward" business.
I spent 5 hours cleaning my place today. It would have been 4, but I made the kids help, so it took much longer. They did a good job with their tasks. I know that someday in the future, they'll thank me for teaching them how to properly clean. But that may be very far off.
Over the last couple of months, I've vacuumed here and there, took a swipe at the dust, scrubbed toilets and countertops and of course kept the kitchen clean, but the place really needed a good solid scrubbing. I'm tired, but really looking forward to walking into my clean, scrubbed and polished home this week. All the laundry's folded and put away, and clean sheets on all the beds. I feel great.
I'll feel even more great when I can afford to hire a cleaning service to come in a couple of times of month to do all of that for me. The going rate is about $30 p/h, and well worth the money, when I have it!
In other inane news, I've decided to start taking a bath in the mornings. Kill two birds with one stone. Bathing and meditating.
I know, genius, right!?
So I'm looking forward to getting into my thoroughly clean bathtub tomorrow, coffee and candle at my my side, bubbles in the water...just another way to add joy to my life.
It's what I'm all about these days. I highly recommend it.
