Cleaning House

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

I know I haven’t been blogging much lately, but I’ve had a lot of stuff going on in my head. I’ve got a really lousy situation in my personal life that I’m not going to blog about just yet. Partially because it wouldn’t do any good, and partially because I don’t even understand it.
I’ve also been working pretty hard to get my apartment cleaned up. I severely neglected it for a long time, and didn’t do anything more than surface clean. I started in the bedroom because it was the biggest problem with unpacked totes, half unpacked boxes, etc, etc. It got to the point where I had a path from the door to the bed. That’s unacceptable! Now my bedroom is clean, and it’s fabulous! Amazing how much better I’ve slept in a clean room the last several days. There are still things to do in there, but I have to clean out the linen closet before I can be completely done. I’m moving from the back of the apartment to the front. I plan to seriously purge the things I have in this apartment– both to the trash can, and to my mom’s garage sale in September. Anything that doesn’t sell will be given to Goodwill.
Little by little, I’m taking back control of my apartment. No, it won’t be a luxury home, or anything of the like, but it will be fit to live in, and it will be clean. A little clutter is okay, this is not. The vacuum I have is bagless, and I swept my bedroom and emptied the canister… oh my goodness, I was disgusted. I’m so mad at myself for letting it get like this. But it ends NOW.
