After having a nice, relaxing day with family yesterday and a great dinner with family on Christmas Eve, today is about cleaning and cleansing for me. My kids went out with their uncle to a movie today, so I'm going to take advantage of the quiet time by cleaning. It SOOOOO needs to be done.
Since I've had a broken hand since the beginning of September, let's just say some things haven't been cleaned quite as well as I would have liked. And I was kind of okay with that. My mantra for a while has been, "It's not perfect but at least it's better than it was."
I also had quite a few product reviews I was doing last month. Between all of the reviews, everyday living and preparations for the holidays. . .. . . let's just say some parts of my house were pretty neglected. And gross. Really, really gross. Uh-hum. . . . . . . Master Bathroom, I'm talking about you. I honestly can't believe I was still even using that bathroom it was so gross. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
It feels so AWESOME to finally be able to clean that thing! I love going in and seeing a nice, sparkly sink. . .. .. . and no silver hair on the rugs (once I kick the cat off the rug to vacuum!). . . . . . . and nice, clean grout in the shower.
Kitty even hung out with me while I was cleaning!
I'm even going to wash the walls and vacuum out the little corners. I'm going to save all of the heavy-duty organizing for January. I'll be coming up with an organization schedule before then to try to get some things organized in the New Year. But, I love my clean fixtures again!
I'm also going to be "cleansing" today. I was so puffy when I woke up this morning. Uggggg. I have had so much salt in the last two days. I planned on eating all of that stuff. I was looking forward to it! I don't eat that way every day, after all. But the puffiness. . . . .geez!!!
I don't fast. I won't fast. I believe in food. *wink, wink* I will never deprive myself of food. So, instead I began my day with oatmeal and banana. I drank my GreensPlus and I'm going to drink plenty of water today and eat mainly fruits and veggies. That's my "cleanse." I might take some extra chlorella and some Milk Thistle. And I'll definitely avoid alcohol and coffee today. I might do some green tea. We'll see.
It feels so good to finally be able to get some cleaning done!!!
Update 4:47 P.M. ~~ I have failed miserably at my "cleanse." Someone needs to take these cookies away. I suppose I was setting myself up for failure this close to Christmas. Next time I'll wait until January 4th! At least I did have a good start with my oatmeal, GreensPlus and chlorella. I have also been really good with water and green tea consumption today. And as of right now I still haven't had coffee or alcohol. That might be all out the door if friends come over tonight, though. We'll see. 'Tis the Season!
And on the cleaning front. . . . . . may I ask. . . . . . .Is it too much to ask to be able to find a vacuum cleaner that doesn't cost an arm and a leg and STILL picks up everything you need it to pick up?
