Get things done.

This was a get things done weekend, and that is exactly what I did. I cleaned, slept and even did a quick CPR review class. I am not sure I feel exactly ready for the week, but I am facing it head on and daring it to come at me. There are more things I am looking forward to than dreading and I think that is a pretty good place to start.

Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.

Let the cream rise to the top.

My apartment has been sorely neglected over the past few weeks. It feels like I am always on the move in one direction or another, but today I got one room mostly cleaned. The floor is free of cat hair, plants are watered and dead leaves removed. I still have a few piles here and there that will need to be taken care of, but it is nice to sit in a semi clean space and write.

This weekend I have many goals. Letters to be written, rooms to be cleaned and hopefully some downtime to relax. Earlier in the week I was reminded that sometimes we add things to the list to keep ourselves busy, but that rarely helps anything. Every now and then it is important to take the time to evaluate what we feel needs to be done and let the cream rise to the top. In the end we will be much happier for it.

More on the way.

For all my complaining about the cold weather we have had this spring, I somehow failed to take advantage of the first nice weekend. Somehow even with a ton getting done I feel like there is still so much I should have taken advantage of. What I did do was relax, sleep in, and hopefully recharged to be ready for a new week. It is impossible to win them all, so I guess sometimes we must choose our battles. I like knowing that there is more beautiful weather on the way, instead of counting down to the last of it. This time of year is so full of hope, and I am looking forward to every inch of it that comes my way.

I survived this week.

Some weeks, no matter how hard you try it is impossible to do everything you wanted to do. I survived this week. The days were long and busy, but I made it through in one piece. Even Friday refused to give me much leeway. I was at work a little past five, but it was worth it to take one thing off my plate next week. When I did finally make it home all I wanted to do was a whole lot of nothing. So that is what I did.

There were things that I should have done, a friends art show opening was tonight, my journal is sadly neglected, and my apartment is in need of some cleaning. Instead of any of that I took some time away from it all and watched Han, Luke and Leia destroy the Battle Star. I am well aware that my priorities were not where they should have been, but sometimes you have to admit defeat. Tomorrow is another day, and next week will have plenty of hurdles for me to jump, but right now, just for a moment I needed to think of nothing. So that is what I did.

Determination.

The trick to cleaning is to not give up before you are done. As frustrating as it is, things always get worse before they get better. Right now I am at the bad state of things. I am attempting to re-arrange to use space more efficiently, in the end I am sure I things will be wonderful, but right now I want to lock the door and never come back.

By the end of this weekend I will have a clean apartment. Hopefully my determination and will power are on equal footing.

Clean Sheets

There is nothing like that first sleep on clean sheets. If I could I would change the sheets on my bed everyday. I am aware this is a slightly unrealistic concept, but I will be honest, there have been a few times that I have changed my sheets after a stressful day just so I could have one bright spot in my day.

The smell and softness of clean sheets makes me so happy. I do not even mind folding sheets because I think it helps to lock in that clean feeling. In the summer I like to hang my sheets outside so they can dry in the fresh air and sunshine. Somehow the sun changes everything about the way sheets feel.

I am aware that this is a rather odd post. The reality is that this week has been a bit crazy but I changed my sheets today, so all is alright with the world. Sometimes it really is the small things that make all the difference.

Overhall.

Too often during the week I let things slip, even the past few weekends have not been as productive at home as they should have been. Sometimes it so difficult to be alone for a whole day. Being by myself has never really bothered me, but sometimes it is not so fun to remember that I am truly alone again.

Today was the most productive day at home I have had in a long time. There are still a few things on my list that need to be done, but for the most part I am a happy girl. Thankfully today was only Saturday and there is still one more day to make up the difference.

It will be wonderful to wake up Monday morning and not dread what needs to be done in the evening. It always feels good to have a clean apartment. Every time I have an overhall cleaning day I tell myself I will never let things get so bad ever again, but somehow things slip away and I end up back at square one. Who knows, maybe this will be the time I can keep the ball rolling and stay on top of things, crazier things have happened.
