Day 120/Crisis Cleaning
Saturday, January 28, 2017
So last night my throat started hurting a little around dinner time, by bedtime it was a little worse, but not overly so. But I woke in the middle of the night to a full blown pain in my throat, what feels like strep. I have not had anything like this since my tonsils were taken out two years ago. Not fun. I feel awful.
And we have company coming over! M is coming over to do a paint class with the kiddos! Yay!
And some unexpected company, the landlord is coming over, boo! So we went into crisis cleaning mode. A lot of stuff went into the closet, but it opened up conversation with DH and me about getting the house clean. I want to get it clean, and then hire someone to come help me deep clean, like wipe down the outside sides of the tub and behind the toilet and all that jazz. So that is what I asked for my birthday in a few months, help me get the house clean enough and then hire someone to come do the deep cleaning that I have a hard time getting to. He agreed. So some good came out of all this. The bedroom looks great, the closet not so much, but we'll work on it.
In the meanwhile the living room is mostly clean, just gotta get to a few more things. The countertops in the kitchen are still a mess, but I'm in the middle of cooking and baking, so that can't be helped, we don't have much counter space. The dining room could be tidier, but I'm sick, and it will have to do.
I'm going to go lay down till the landlord gets here.
I'll post pictures of our owl paintings on Monday.
