...a few days ago and now am burned but happy. We moved August 15th and junk still lying around…my partner working a lot so it’s been me unpacking and cleaning every last thing, keeping kitchen and washroom clean and assembling bedframe, putting up coat racks and curtains and hauling things back on the bus from stores…all on top of school and a job. Phooooooooooooof, I’m tired. However, I also came across flylady.net which helped not so much with details as with motivation. I do see that that site has made a life-changing difference for many people who use it though. As it stands my bedroom, kitchen and washroom, 3 of my 5 used rooms, are within 5 minutes of being sparkling clean. The office and living room where all the boxes are up against the wall still, with my kitchen table still disassembled, are next. There’s also the boiler room (storage room) full of junk my other half keeps stowing there. Since lots of the boxes need to go in there (they’re plastic bins), I need to clean all that crap out first. Sigh. Halfway there though, if oh so tired since the last big push.
Our last apartment, our first, was a disaster. I will never let it happen again. This is going to be my zen comfortable, feng-shui’ed, gentle, comfortable, peaceful & enfolding perfect house. I can’t stand all the negative effects of the old way. This will be done by Christmas if it’s the last thing I do.
