I feel like I have overextended myself with the whole Lent thing. Perfectly heathy eating, perfectly sober six weeks, perfectly clean house, perfectly sane hygiene schedule is all too much expectation of perfection.
I remember changing my Lent commitment here once before. Perhaps I should have realized it was too much. So I am going to change my commitment to something more reasonable. I’m going to eat well most of the time. I’m going to drink a lot less and limit it to a night or two a week. It’s still a priority because without eating and drinking properly I can’t muster the Herculean energy it talks to clean the shack up dunk myself in the bath box regularly.
The cleaners came yesterday. And when they come, it seems to accentuate the things they don’t do. Today I am cleaning the walls and doors and baseboards and window sills and archways in the living room. They are supposed to be white except for the walls that are supposed to be a fairly pale yellow. I’m not even halfway done and I am exhausted. Then I stopped to clean the fan. The fan is very close to an uncovered air vent (calm down Trho, I’m working on it) and the vents are dirty so the heat/air comes whooshing out with dust and the shit literally hits the fan and the dirt and dog hair and whatever else is flying around hits the walls. Since I am in serious cleaning mode, I am trying to actually clean the fan instead of just sort of wiping it down. The thing is there is a stupid ball-shaped thingy on the end that has all of these cut outs that collect dirt. I can’t get it to screw off as the screws are probably rusted in from the water/bleach from prior cleaning. And of course the whole damn thing is white and my new area rug is underneath. So this is my current predicament. Anyway, I am about to get back to it.
I just wanted to give you guys a place to chime in about how things are going for you! I’ll be back to update later. I’m going to lose daylight soon and want to get as much in as I can until then.
My good news is that the sun came out for the first time in four weekends today. I don’t think we’ve had five days of sun in 2018. So I am making the most of it. What’s your good news?
