Day 121/Sick/Cleaning

Sunday, January 29, 2017

I spent the evening curled up on the couch in DH's office while the landlord was here. I feel awful emoticon but I must muscle through because youngest DD is getting baptized today and I must go up on stage with her. Me. With the vertigo. Oh boy. I thought about sitting this one out and just watching from the crowd, but she had me promise I would be right there with a towel waiting for her (she's afraid she will cry if she gets water in her eyes). I'm so proud of her. She's so worried about getting water in her eyes. She wanted to wear her goggles. I seriously thought about it for a minute. But she has to face this fear. And goggles would be silly at a very serious event.

The landlord changed out the fan, and now we have light in our bedroom, yay! We bought lamps, but it is not the same as having an overhead light.

Some good came out of the landlord texting us early in the morning to say he would be there in a few hours... I got to broach the subject of cleaning, really cleaning, the house with DH, and him helping. I want to get the house clean and hire a maid service to come and help me deep clean (you know, get the outside tiles of the bathtub, the window sills, behind the toilet...). Maybe hire a steam cleaning company to come and hit the carpets or get a new shampooer that actually works. And he agreed. I said you know part of that is getting it clean to start with. I can't do it on my own, I need help. Not just the kids help, but his. He agreed. Yay! emoticon And I have a clutter free bedroom. The closet was clean and now needs to be gone through again, but I'd rather the closet be a mess than the bedroom! And we will work on it!

This is what I get for not sticking to Flylady. I was so busy this week, and most of the mess was DH's so I figured I'd just skip the work this week. I should have known better! I could have had half of the work done this last week if I'd have just stuck to Flylady and followed what I was supposed to be doing.

Now I don't want a picture perfect house that could be on the cover of a magazine. I just want a clean home that I won't be embarrassed if people come over. That I can leave the door to my room open and not worry if someone sees inside. That will be nice.

No working out yesterday or today. I feel awful and need to rest to get feeling better. Today is going to be pushing it. We go to church, youngest DD gets baptized, then we go out to eat with the family, which always takes forever. I'm going to be exhausted. I'm going to have to go to the doctor on Monday. I can feel it in my ears, they ache. Gonna need some antibiotics for this one. Or something. I ate more than I should have yesterday. I was anxious and tired and sick feeling and so I ate. I forgot my shakes and got hungry and didn't even think about it, I just ate. Not good. Must remember my shakes today.

    I can relate somewhat. Spent the last 2 days on the couch with pain from an abscessed tooth and the nausea (and more) from the medications for it. All I could think was I'd feel better if the house weren't so messy. But we're not supposed to beat ourselves up about things like that. Just continue the best we can from here. Get well soon. emoticon
