I am so tired of winter, especially since it’s April. I don’t want to see snow or ice, of which we have both. I want to see green sprouts in the grass and flowers beginning to bloom. So far that hasn’t been the case although the long range forecast calls for sunshine and warmth by the end of the week. I’ll believe that when I see it. And, since I’m stuck inside, I’m working on our “spring cleaning”.
About a week ago, Colin decided to turn our storage closet into a computer room, which meant relocating a bunch of stuff to the living room. Some of it’s been moved but there’s still a handful of stuff in need of a home. Cleaning that clutter was one of the chores on my to do list two days ago, along with cleaning off the kitchen table and repairing my Canada Day decoration… which made it’s way out of the storage closet to collapse into four pieces on my kitchen table. The rest of the chores have thankfully been completed, it was just those three remaining.
I know I’m going to be cleaning the living room on my own, simply because Colin currently has homework he’s ignoring. Homework that will suddenly become of major importance as soon as I set foot in the living room. But, whether he helps or not, it has to get done, and I’ll feel so much better without the clutter. Does anyone else feel crummy when the house is messy?
I don’t know why but for some reason I feel like my head’s stuffed full of clouds today. I’m trying to concentrate on writing but my mind tugs in all sorts of directions and my thoughts feel mushy. I’ve got no other way to explain it. At least I don’t need much brain power to clean, although I probably could use it to write. I’ll edit this later to add an after picture of the living room. My before picture is only going into my accountability group on Facebook.
