LilyFestre Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House (1682* d) RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House 30 Jun 18


We had plans to go to the races and fireworks tonight but the high temperatures made us all change our minds about wanting to go. There will be other races and there will be more fireworks.

On that note, it IS hot out today and we've been doing what we want, when we want to....taking our cues from how we're feeling.

The boys did some work outside while I went to market early in the day. We had a nice cold lunch and then we all promptly fell asleep in the coolness of the house. The lights have been out all day (on purpose, curtains closed, fans are on and one window unit AC. The house temperature is absolutely wonderful and we are thankful for that!

Our very first family vacation is approaching quickly and I think I made a good decision.....We have 3 days off before we leave and it is my intention to spend one of those days really cleaning the house, one day for errands and one day for packing. I am looking forward to a fun, restful vacation and a clean house upon return so I can hit the ground running for work. The only thing that will need to happen when we get back is laundry and that's not a big deal. All my work clothes are staying home...LOL...I am NOT taking them on vacation!   ;) Anyway..I like the idea of leaving it clean. :)

Today I am puttering here and there. It's been a very long week for me, the bad definitely outweighing the good but I suppose we'll have this from time to time. I needed today to just be....in whatever form that may be. One thing I will share is that I have a spot on my arm that has to be removed. The dermatologist isn't sure if it is cancerous or not but since it's suspicious looking, she will be removing it after vacation. She was going to remove it on Thursday but when she asked if I was going to be swimming in the next two weeks, I had to tell her that I was going to be vacationing on a lake...so yes, swimming, boating and fishing are going to be happening daily! She said that she is confident that it is not melanoma so at least that's good. Still, I'm not looking forward to having a chunk taken out of my arm.

Anyway....my table is clear and clean, the counters are clear and clean, dishes are done, the toilet has been scrubbed, floors are in reasonable shape, the table by my chair is just about all cleared off. I've got a spot where I've started collecting things that we want to take on our trip as well as the checklist so I can mark it off as I go.

I got a new car this week and I love that it's empty. I'm planning on keeping it that way as much as possible. :)

That's all for now. I hope everyone is able to have a cool spot to relax in with these high temperatures.

Have a great week everybody!

Michelle
