So, after further review of the budget, I had to stop maid service. It takes e a very long time to clean, but I decided if I tackle one cleaning job a day, I can stay on top of things. Yes, it is tough and time consuming, but only if I do it all in one day. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner. I could have saved so much money! So today, I took on my first task; my closet and my bathroom.
I used to sit and dread cleaning. Not today. Just knowing I was only doing my closet and bathroom made my objective possible. I did it. I still felt energized, so I moved on to the laundry, but I didn’t get too involved. See, my old behavior would have been to keep going until I hurt myself or collapsed into a sweaty heap on my bed at the end of doing all my chores at once. That sounds like not such a bad thing, but that kind of behavior would result in the following day being immobile, in pain and grumpy. So, maybe my other bathroom is a mess, but that can wait until tomorrow. I can spend an hour or two, take my time and have the rest of the day to have fun.
Yes, I can do this. It will result in more pedicures and possibly a vacation. A real vacation, not a trip to a relative’s house. I mean a real vacation. Yes, I want to stay somewhere I can swim to the bar. Just because I can’t drink doesn’t mean I should give up on my dream.
Maybe not exactly this house sitting gig, but it does get me in the mood. Click here to enjoy Someplace tropical where I have to swim to the bar, with fewer banana hammocks and more board shorts.
