Re: The ONE thing I have cleaned today is. . . .

This morning, I woke up and finished the dishes I swore I would do last night. I wound up washing my dining room floor before bed, instead. Which is fine, b/c the floor was gross. After the dishes, I feather dusted my living room and vacuumed the entire carpet. All while my coffee brewed, and before meds!
I think I'm really getting excited about being medicated again! It's shaping up to be a good day.

Re: The ONE thing I have cleaned today is. . . .

I realized this morning that I'm late on a couple of bills, including the mortgage ****cringe****, so I finally tackled the desktop. Spent all morning on it, and I'm probably half-done. Still need to record a big stack of invoices, and balance several accounts...Oops, just dug up a tax form that says "AVOID PENALTY Due March 1, 2008". Sighhh.

Thumbs up Re: The ONE thing I have cleaned today is. . . .

I just found this thread, and I love it! I have just cleaned my side of the bedroom...at least gotten a good chunk of it done!

My DH is very tidy and organized. I am a SLOB! (A friend once saw our bedroom: his side all dusted, sheets and blankets pulled up, all his clothes in his closet, hangars all facing the same way...my side all tossed around, piles of clothing everywhere, empty dresser drawers wide open, my pillow at the foot of the bed, the blankets on my side all tangled. She stared at it, wide-eyed, and then turned and looked at me and said "He must really, REALLY love you!" I got ehr point, but after taht I kept the door closed when complany came over!)

So, today I cleared off the top of my bureau and went through all the piles of clothing on my floor around the bed. There is a save pile, a small "to look at" pile, a huge laundry/drycleaning pile, and so far two gigantic bags of stuff for charity and two enormous bags of trash.

Things I have discovered:
  • I own far too many socks.
  • the bed seems taller now that I am standing on the floor instead of piles of way too many socks.
  • I have gone through three sizes of clothing and back again in the past two years.
  • I found an old makeup case with lipsticks in it from my wedding 13 years ago, and had absolutely NO urge to keep them! OUt they went!
  • Cats love to take socks and push them under the bureau. Hence the compulsive sock purchasing issue.
  • Piles of clothing and books acts as a wonderful protectant for hardwood floors.
And, to top it all off, I found the diamond earrings that I have been weeping over because I thought I threw them away by mistake six months ago! WOOHOO!!!!! :ancing::

Re: The ONE thing I have cleaned today is. . . .

I have trouble understanding this thread because I felt so much better and less depressed when I finally got diagnosed that I clean my place up routinely and just about everyday. To MommytoAustin, yes, making a list before I go to bed for the next day helps me a lot! I have cleaned everyday except I try to take it easy on the weekends. I vaccuum whenever it needs to be, make my bed when I get out of it, clean Sparky's litter box everyday, I keep my drumset dusted and waxed, I keep my kitchen and bathroom vaccumed and mopped, keep my AC filter clean, my porch swept off, keep my silverware and coffee cups clean, I don/t have any dishes to wash I just eat frozen ent'rees and sandwichs, take a shower everyday or every night, keep my teeth brushed and flossed, brush Sparky with a Shedender every single day so there isn't cat hair everywhere and so he does not hack up hairballs{gross}, wash all my clothes in a five-gallon bucket by hand always. This is good exercise for my hands and arms, it saves me money, doesn't take very long, and I have a drying line strung up in the extra bedroom that I just use for storage. As long as I am not depressed I can not stand a dirty messy house. I also costantly come up with new set-ups or new ideas to make the house look better and easier to live in, more convienient. I set up a little indoor target range, just for air-guns, you need ventilation for firearms and a better backstop of course. But this enables me to target practice when it is raining or at night. I practice everyday to keep my targetshooting scores up there in the 9, 10 & Bullseye shape and I have always really enjoyed target shooting. I shoot empty cans and water bottles inside too. That is my basic routine. Now of course I have plenty of time being on diability and single with no live-ins presently.

ROFL hehehehe hehehehe
I cleaned by side of the bedroom today - I have just seen your post ...
Heheheheh heheheheh .... Oh, it's killing me .......

I was sitting here reading your post just laughing, my husband just asked me what is so funny (I havent been much for laughing lately so I am supposing he must of thought something was good) I couldnt tell him what I was laughing at ...

I am a bit of an organisation nut usually but there is something with the never ending pile of clothing that I accummulate at the end of the bed on the floor, hanging off things etc etc ..... I suppose you cant be perfect everywhere. LOL
