Because I Can

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.

  1. I love having people come and clean my house but it is so expensive. I’m going to save so much money. It’ going to take a while for the schedule to work. I know it’s going to feel like I’m in a mess a while, but if I can stick with a routine I think it will work. It’s good to know someone else is trying it too. Maybe we can give each other moral support when we fall off our schedule.
