Spring Cleaning - Day 1
Friday, March 16, 2018
'What lies behind you & what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you' (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Today is: 'Everything You Do is Right Day'. (as long as you don't hit the junk food)
On this day in history:
- (1802) The U.S. Military Academy at West Point was established by law.
- (1926) The first liquid-fuel rocket was flown.
I got a lot accomplished this afternoon, but still have a few more things to do.
Spent the day emptying out the dressers (I have 2) in an effort make room for the seasonal 'clothing swap' (switching from fall / winter to spring / summer, leaving a few warmer long-sleeve shirts in case of a sudden Wisconsin cold spell), moving the dressers (w/o difficulty) & vacuuming behind them. I then pulled out all the storage bins from under the bed, purged items as needed, & vacuumed before putting the bins back... With the extra 30 minutes before dinner, I sorted through my DVD collection & packed up movies for charity that I no longer watch.
Phew, that's a lot! But, did I mention that I also did 3 loads of laundry in between while cleaning? And found the time to eat 3 healthy meals?
Tonight, my goal is to haul out my spring / summer clothes... Purge the clothes that either don't fit or didn't wear last season, re-fold the clothes I'm keeping & put in the dressers. I'm then going to fold the laundry (yes, I left it piled up in the basket), read for 15-30 minutes & get in a short workout before going to bed (my goal is to be in bed no later than 9:30 pm).
Tomorrow, I'm working from 7 am - 3 pm. Despite this, the Spring Cleaning will continue. The goal is to dust remaining furniture & electronics, flip bed mattress (w/ assistance), and vacuum remainder of the room. That done, my goal is to get a workout in prior to going to bed.
