After spending a few days painting the outside of our house both DH and I decided we were just too old to do the painting up on the scaffolding, and we hired some help. At right about the same time my renters moved out of the home I had been living in before getting married and unfortunately, she left it in a COMPLETE MESS! I was over there three days in a row, mowing the lawn, pre-treating spots (lots of them) on the carpet, vacuuming and then shampooing great room, master bedroom and two spare bedrooms. And the tile all needed scrubbing, as well as going over the baseboards, and all the rest of the stuff that takes you from FILTHY to CLEAN!
It's little wonder that my body felt like someone had been beating on me! Or maybe I got run over by an 18-wheeler!
Best way to relax and let your body heal is to get away from it all. And that's just what we did. Wednesday we came up to our summer home in the mountains. Cool evenings/nights and a temperature of around 70 to 75 during the day. Plus "nothing to do." I slept more hours than I care to admit, take naps, go for walks, and have eaten healthy. I also brought my painting supplies along this trip, so I'm ready to create something wonderful. It's only Thursday today, and I'm already feeling 75% better!
