BLARG. I wrote this whole fricken' post and it disappeared because a plugin was not working in chrome. Here is the upshot: cleaned a lot, bought groceries, spent time with a friend, talked with family.
I have very little patience with rewriting this.
Especially since it was nothing all that revolutionary. I want less stuff in my house and in my life. It just clutters things. I am getting closer to having a place to put everything instead of needing to maintain a rotation of things on the floor that have no home...
I engaged in very aerobic cleaining this morning and this afternoon with a lovely nap with daughter sandwiched between. My obsessive, hyperfocused cleaning is not sustainable. For one thing, eventually I will have to go back to work (next week) and not be able to devote hours at a time. Also, I have to do other things.
Ummm... I also think I am using the busycleaning to avoid having the sad creep up on me. And it seems to be working. Also, I have a lot to show for my manic organization and demolition project. I do need to borrow my brother's truck to really get a lot of stuff OUT of the house. I have a bunch of things that I would like to take to the dump. Right now. But I doubt they are open at 9:45 on a Friday night. Slackers.
