cleaning-spree

Better late than never, right? Here’s my August playlist! Lots of music that has been accompanying my room cleaning sprees this month in preparation for school starting up again soon. Hope you all are enjoying these last few weeks of summer!

PS - Quick question, do you guys like and/or use the Apple Music link to these playlists that I usually post? Will get that up tomorrow if you do!

I went on a cleaning spree yesterday and organized my pose folder. Now I have new poses to play with. Yayyy. I was inspired by that jacket to make a brown/tan themed lookbook, so I finally got off my ass and made one for y’all. Thank you to all custom content creators. Enjoy!

Holy shit guys, I just went down the rabbit hole of cleaning, and I haven’t been able to do that in SO LONG. Seriously, I was just trying to throw out the old broken chair that my 6 year old cut her leg on yesterday and replace it with a less old, slightly less broken chair. That’s it. But then I realized that I had to do so many other things just to facilitate throwing out this chair, such as:

~Remove the box full of gift bags from behind the back door so it can open properly

~Remove the box #1 of Christmas town from the top of the gift bags box

~Realize that box #2 of Christmas town is sitting on top of the replacement chair

~Closing the boxes only to realize they need to be labeled

~Finding my TARDIS lights and realizing that I need to find a place to hang them up, so I leave EVERYTHING where it lands and walk around the house looking for the perfect spot for the lights

~Find the perfect spot for the lights, nail them to the wall, then realize my wall light is in the way

~Get the cordless drill and plug in the battery while I find the lamp I know I put *somewhere* a couple weeks ago when we got back from IKEA

you see how this goes on and on and on? It went like this for 3 HOURS, and while I still have some cleaning to do, I’ve also done like 4 loads of laundry, 2 loads of dishes, put dinner in the crock pot, and managed to read a couple of 20K Sterek fics. Like, for the first time in years I actually feel accomplished! I only wish I had taken some pictures before the cleaning because it was particularly atrocious.

Kai and I did some serious unfucking of our habitat today.  This means I’ve cleaned a portion of the past three days!  That’s a record!  And I’ve had minimal complaints!

Today, I decided that every surface needed to be dust free within the bedroom before the end of the day.  I have exempted one shelf from that rule because I forgot about it until just now… when everything else was dust free.  But SERIOUSLY EVEN THE CURTAINS GOT WASHED.

I have run through all of my hankies due to cleaning sneezes… I’ve snotted on the floor several times, and I’ve had to clean out a clog from my vacuum cleaner AGAIN for the second time this weekend, but this time because the dog Falkor is so damned furry (and sheds so much) that his hair causes an immediate clog if you don’t sweep the [carpeted] floor BEFORE you vacuum.

We even re-arranged the bedroom.  Kai’s side of the room looks like it’s got a damned ocean of space.  My side’s still a bit cramped, but that may be different in a day or so… I’m going to see how I like it before I make a commitment.  

Too tired to finish this post.

I spent the ENTIRE morning organizing and cleaning my daughters “room” for while we’re at my parents.  We were supposed to leave this summer but plans changed so we’re going to be spending another year here (my father is having surgery and they really need the help).  The futon is what she’s sleeping on and she LOVES that it changes from a bed to a couch!  I’m so glad i’m done the room!  Now if only it can stay clean with a toddler.
