I had an extremely exciting day today: …I cleaned my apartment.
The sad thing is, I’m so not even being sarcastic. haha! I love when things are clean… and my apartment has been a disaster zone for longer than I’m willing to admit. I knew teacher’s college was going to be busy, but nothing prepared me for the volume of coursework and in-class hours. Last week my days were so full I hardly had time to eat, let alone clean, cook, do laundry, or anything else. Thankfully the Hubster is WONDERFUL and has been picking up my slack.
I still feel like I’m recuperating after getting only 2.5 hours of sleep on Thursday night. It’s funny.. I used to be able to stay up until 4:30 like it was nothing when I lived in the city. Now it’s taking me DAYS to recoup the lost sleep. I am officially old. haha! So, I intended to have a really lazy day and not move at all, buuuut… when I woke up I decided that I could dig out my desk (and floor surrounding my desk) which has been littered with papers and books since October. It took me a long, long time, but I finally feel organized and can finally tell what colour my desk is again. :)
Well, once the floor had been cleared I thought that maybe I could just vacuum around my desk a little… which lead to vacuuming the entire apartment in every nook and cranny. It took forever, but my floors are lovely now! And then, once I cleared off the desk part, I thought that maybe I could dust it a little… which lead to a super-dusting-frenzy of the rest of the place too. haha!
And then the cleaning lead to organizing, which is something I’ve wanted to do for months. My classes are all separated, the paperwork is filed, the books are on shelves, and it’s all tucked away ready for when I go back in 3 weeks.
Anyway, my relaxing day turned into a super-productive day where I was able to do a million things I haven’t had time to do in months. I heart clean. :)
So, the moral of this story is: if you want to have a relaxing day, don’t clean your desk.
P.s. New exercise post!!
