This weekend was a rare weekend without a rehearsal for Spring Mysteries. I got to stay at home, and sleep in. It was lovely!
We got some new bookshelves last week, as well. It’s been on our wish list for quite some time. So part of the weekend plan was to set up the bookshelves. As a family.
We started about 1:30 on Sunday. And of course, it wasn’t just building the bookshelves. We ended up rearranging about half the house. And cleaning. All the cleaning!
Normally we have about one or two bags of garbage in a week. Two is a lot for us. Yesterday we took out two.
I think we swept the house at least a dozen times. Having a wood stove means a lot of debris gets brought in. And that gets scattered around the house.
I’m not a big fan of cleaning. I’m a terrible housekeeper, honestly. Yet when I start cleaning, it’s usually pretty thorough. The only thing I didn’t do today is mop (and it may happen yet…). I wiped down walls (fine, not all of them), I dusted, and brushed off cobwebs. Yeah, there is still plenty of dust and cobwebs. And our living area is a lot cleaner than it was 24 hours ago.
We live in a small house, that we probably outgrew some time ago. Every once in a while we rearrange and adjust and make it livable again. Today was one of those days.
By 8:30 pm, we were all exhausted, and irritable, and very hungry. Too tired to make dinner. My (wonderful and amazing) husband took us all out for dinner. Thank you!
My day didn’t go as planned, and I’m probably going to be sore tomorrow. And I’m pleased with what DID get done today. Now, hopefully we can get the washer repaired!
