Day Twelve

Today will be a taxing one. I’m sitting up at 4:00 AM because my allergies are destroying me and the Benedryl hasn’t kicked in yet. If Newell wakes me up early again, those three hours of concentrated cleaning will be especially hard! On the other hand, the joy of seeing things come together is a great incentive to clean. ūüėČ I’ll roll my first go of the day here, then go try to sleep a little more. 30 minutes in the Studio will be my first chore tomorrow¬†this morning.

UPDATE ONE: It won’t be easy to see the progress in the pictures for this chore, but believe me, a LOT of books went downstairs to the library (a room I haven’t rolled yet…) where they belonged. Psycho Kitty was protesting the activity loudly most of the time.

I guess you can see more clean floor than I thought. One step at a time. But believe me — up and down stairs with armloads of books for 30 minutes is a full workout!

Newell told me I could take a day off if I needed to, but I told him it wasn’t a good idea. When my Convention season starts, there will be whole weekends off. I can’t afford extra days at this stage. BUT, I do think I’ll take a wee break. ūüėČ

Let’s see what’s next first.

30 minutes in the Garage. Since the car is in the garage, does cleaning that out count?

UPDATE TWO: Ugh! Okay, that does it…I’m calling it. ūüė¶ Got some lunch, bought a vacuum cleaner for the interim until I could see about getting the old one fixed, then took a two-hour nap. And still feel like crap. I might as well admit that the only way I’ll get anything else done today is if I get more filing done. I’m not even sure I feel up to that, but at least it has more likelihood. I feel like I let the team down…but sometimes life gets in the way.

DAILY WRAP UP: 30 minutes in Studio = Disappointing day.

TINY UPDATE THREE: Well, didn’t get much else done, though I kept hoping to feel better…but I did get the vacuum functional and tried it out. LOVE it. At least so far. Easy to carry around, bagless, lots of attachments. Think this is the start of a beautiful relationship. Here’s what I got:¬†Euro-Pro Shark Navigator Swivel Deluxe Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner with Premium Pet Tools¬†— so far (not that I’ve done a lot) it gets 5 Stars from me!
