I woke up early today and found myself full of energy. Where did that come from? I decided to take advantage of that and get some things done around the house. Now don't get me wrong, there is a LOT to do and I have sectioned things off in such a way that it will take me most of this year to get everything cleaned up. But I did get a lot done and that makes me feel so good!
I had to go to Rite Aid to pick up my medicine. While I was there I saw that my favorite iced tea was on sale and the sugar free that Joe drinks was on sale also. So I got that. Maybe it was that caffeine that gave me the energy. Hmm.... I know it made my heart pound since I'm not used to it. I rarely drink caffeine.
I did a lot of work in the kitchen. The first thing I did was the table and chairs. Here's the before (don't faint):
And here's the after:
Quite a difference, wouldn't you say? Well that's what happens when you get sick and haven't done a deep cleaning in about a year.
I also washed the windows and changed the curtains.
I scrubbed the stove and fan hood. I even got into every crevice and did the knobs and handle. It's so pretty now.
Still a lot to go, but I'm so happy with everything I got done.
In the living room I finally got rid of all the Christmas stuff. Instead of a little Christmas tree on the table by the window, I have the orchid the people at work gave me when I left.
I took down the Christmas lights in the window, undecorated the little tree in the flower pot and took the wreath off of the front door. I put my giant snowflake and some candles in the window. (Sorry about the reflection of the lights across the street in the window. I can never get rid of that.)
And finally the snowman pillow is on the sofa.
I found some of the paperwork I need for tomorrow, but not all. So I have to get up pretty early tomorrow and clean off the tables in the living room. It's a big job.
I am so very tired right now. I have to go to sleep. I am falling asleep sitting up. Another busy day tomorrow. Good night.
