SaturdayNeil hosted one of (yes, he has more than one) his fantasy football leagues at our house starting at ten in the morning. Ugh and yay. Ugh because I had to get up early to clean. I could have done it Friday night but... lazy. Yay because I spent the rest of the time upstairs trying to get through some of my paper/and I don't know what piles. Things just start to accumulate! I got some of that done. Stuff was thrown away! Also worked on some blog posts that I've been meaning to do. I drank some coffee which normally gives me lots of energy and focus, but my brain felt a little scattered so I didn't get as much done as I wanted. Neil said all his friends mentioned how "immaculate" the place was, which was surprising to me because I did just a basic cleanup. I'm beginning to think I'm the only one that sees all the dirt and flaws in my home. Or people are just being nice.
I did my laundry and yard work this day since I spent most of Saturday upstairs. I didn't take any before photos so the one photo doesn't really demonstrate any progress. I filled up the green bin, restacked the wood onto the concrete instead of the ground, and then raked up some more piles to deal with next weekend once the bin is empty again (you can see Turtle chilling up against the dryer vent). I washed my hair and even though it was the same shampoo and conditioner I've been using for the past three months, my baby kat went nuts. She latched onto my head with claws out and aggressively rubbed her face all over my hair and then started biting and scraping her teeth against my skull. Ow.
MondayNeil had his other fantasy football draft after work so I just took the day off. We are so slow at work anyways. On Friday Neil started listing things I should do on my day off which kind of irked me because heaven forbid I give him a list of chores for him to do when he takes a day off. I try to understand that he doesn't realize when he does that to me, but UUUGGHHH. Let my time be my time. I'm not always in the mood to tolerate Mr. BossyPants. Though he really doesn't like it when I call him bossy.
Not going to lie, being a housewife for a day was FREAKING AWESOME. Would have been better if I wasn't anticipating my roommate's arrival sometime after two... But that goes without saying. Made me figure out the best routine for the day, though (to avoid being downstairs in the afternoon). I started with the kitchen then worked my way around the downstairs (kitchen--->dining room--->livingroom), then the stairs, then the computer room/laundry. IF this was my "job" I think this is a pretty good routine. I also added a "project" (cleaning the floor in front of one of the shelving units in the garage) which I think would be part of the regular routine (adding one project a day). Which still left me with plenty of me time! Blasted some KPop and drank some coffee to fuel my morning then chilled the afternoon. Bliss! I don't think I'd be able to keep up the momentum if this was my life, but it was great for a day.
