Mini Projects: Days 9-14
The last few days have been smaller than my typical “mini” projects. Things like cleaning my dining room table and the floor under it. My kids are freaking animals I swear. I took some before pictures that really do NOT show how dirty the table is and the amount of FOOD that somehow ended up under the table instead of in their mouths. I also cleaned my kitchen because..as any sane person knows..your kitchen gets dirty every single day and some days? You don’t wanna clean it. So then the next day you have twice the mess. Well I had like..three days worth of crap to clean up.
The reason for my smaller than average projects was because I was dealing with some horrible neck pain and then some sciatic pain – so I felt like because my mobility was limited, I needed to take it easy. I wasn’t even able to make dinner a few nights because looking down to prepare anything was too much.
SSSSOOO now that I’m on the mend and I’m using the techniques my physical therapist gave me, like I should have been doing this whole time but wasn’t..I’m feeling so much better and I feel ready to tackle the bigger of my mini projects.
For instance today, I’m going to be doing a combination of a few. In my attempt to work smarter not harder, I’ll be stripping bedding from multiple rooms and washing it as well as getting the laundry all washed, dried, folded and put away.
I KNOW that I’m not the only person who lets it settle on a special spot on the couch. I know I’m not. So no need to act like you haven’t done that before. You’ll find no judgement here! I still love you and so does Jesus, so..rest easy friends!
I actually had to buy a new iron AND an ironing board cover because I just despise the one I have currently (the board) and our irons as just absolute GARBAGE. I don’t do a lot of ironing because I hate it, but when I do do it (ha..doo-doo! ……I’m in my 30’s and I’m allowed to laugh at that so shutty-uppy..) I prefer my iron to kick butt on wrinkles.
I haven’t gotten it yet from Amazon but when I do, you’ll see first hand how it works because something I’ve been wanting to do for MONTHS now is to iron the clothes in our closet. Not ALL of them, but the ones that actually SHOULD be ironed. No, I’m not talking about jeans. So you people who iron your jeans..I don’t even have words for you lol
But, I want to iron all my hubs dress shirts and pants, all that kinda stuff. I don’t have a lot of clothes that require ironing because uhh..I don’t like to iron so why would I intentionally purchase such pieces of clothing? So the project won’t be as huge as ironing our entire master closet, but it’s also not going to be as simple as taking the trash out 😉
With my birthday being tomorrow, I decided I’m taking the entire day off from any and all household ANYTHING.
Aside from feeding myself and the boys of course haha. We’re even taking the day off school! I plan to just read all day and maybe play Mario with the boys 😉 then of course go out for tacos for dinner because I don’t wanna cook myself a birthday dinner 😀 For some reason the photos I took of all my little projects, are missing. I know they are SOMEWHERE and when I find them I’ll update this post with them so you can see it all! haha
