I have been forcing myself to do things today. I just spent two days in bed recovering from exerting too much energy over the weekend and I was desperate to get some things done this week. My husband told me to cage and tie the tomato plants today and when I went to do that I seen he had forgotten a bag of garbage on the patio, luckily the coons or other wildlife did not get to it, so I walked it to the garbage bin at the end of the drive and checked my mail. The walk there and back is 1/4 of a mile, I try to do it daily even when I do not feel like it so I am at least getting a small amount of exercise.
I stripped my bed, I have been sick with a infection in my lungs, and been in the bed a lot so I am determined to wash EVERYTHING on my bed today, not just the sheets. So far I am doing ok with that.
I did unload the dishwasher and load the few dishes we had in the sink in there.
Still on my to-do list....
Clean out fridge (been 2 weeks since it was done last yuck..) and dust.
I hope I can accomplish all this today and tomorrow I plant to do the floors. I know it will take me all day to do those and it will wear me out and be the only thing I get done all day. And Wednesday I hope to clean the bathrooms.
If I can accomplish all these things this week I will be doing really good. And I do hope that I can because this place really needs some TLC in the cleaning department.
I did have a girl who came and cleaned once a week for me. I would keep up the things like the dishes and laundry, when she came she would do all my dusting, floors, bathrooms, fridge and put clean linen on the beds each week, but its just not in our budget to afford that at this time so I am pretty much left to try and get it all done myself.
As far as flooring... I use a HAAN steamer once a week. One week a month instead of using the HAAN I use a machine called a GLOSS BOSS... It puts a shine on the floors for me and does not take effort, it pretty much drives itself.
Cooking... I wish I could do better than I do. Right now were in the garden season so I am just eating a lot of veggies either raw, on sandwiches, or marinated and having cheese sandwiches. The little bit I do cook is normally in the crockpot, one dish meals or premade foods I can just warm up or take out of the fridge and eat. My husband is only home 2 days a week so I am lucky I do not have the pressure of getting a meal on the table every day.
