Deep breath...

Monday, November 12, 2012

I spent the entire day as a nervous wreck about the inspection. Well, I came home and there were no nastygrams from the landord, so I passed (believe me, they're not subtle if they're not happy with you). So now I can breathe again. I've had very little sleep and literally nothing to eat or drink besides my morning coffee all day. I worked a long hard day after finishing cleaning the place, and the office was an absolute ice bucket so I spent the entire day shivering! I am totally done in. Luckily I have the leftovers of the pot roast and gravy from last night. I just have to heat them, cook some noodles, and reheat the leftover Brussels sprouts.

Well, the upside is that now the place is clean for the holidays!

    YEA!! BTW, do you even have a HR department at work?? I hope you are logging everything that happens. Sometimes just the fact that you are logging (and they know that you are logging) really makes a difference. You do not have to work in unpleasant conditions. You should be taking breaks. Good luck with everything. I hope you know from all the responses you get to your blogs that you have a ton of support. HUGS!!

Definitely a relief. Now that it's clean, good time to plan how to keep it from getting to the point of being such a challenge to bring up to spec. (I can be lazy beyond belief about housework, but finally realized that doing 5 minutes here and there every day was so much better than hours of scouring.)

    At least it is done and over with! Give yourself a pat on the back, big sigh of relief, and move forward. One thing done!

    Glad the inspection went well - now the trick is to keep up with the place so you won't have to do a massive clean again :)

    It's so nice that you don't have to worry anymore, and even nicer that your place is now so clean. And just in time for the holidays!

    Yay for a clean house! So much nicer to come home to. I have been getting caught up too-it was nice to have a long weekend!

    Congratulations... I know you have to be relieved about the inspection, and as a bonus, you have a clean apartment! (which I know doesn't give you back your stressed out weekend and all the hours you put into cleaning).
But enjoy your meal and I hope one of your favorite chefs is on to give you some much needed comfort and happiness.
Congratulations on achieving a goal, it may have been a forced issue, but you had a goal, you achieved it.
As for work, you need to start claiming your time to take breaks... it's not healthy for you to go so long without them (just sayin')
