I found myself as I have for many years….alone, yet again… the difference this year was that instead of feeling sorry for myself…. I made a plan…I wrote it out … and I executed it!
This was my list:
- Sleep in
- Do laundry
- Wash bedding
- Clean bathroom
- Touch up paint in apartment
- Build shelves
- Move furniture from one place to another
- Reorganize closets
- Reorganize Kitchen
- Clean hardwood floors
I woke up naturally without an alarm at 9 a.m. I got up, and started the day, I washed my clothes, shower curtains and bedding. This not a small feat, as I have to walk down four flights of stairs to the laundry room.
Back and forth I went up and down, for what seemed like hours. At the end it was done, then onto the next project of the day… I built the storage unit I had under my bed since I moved in, over a year ago. I was hesitant to take it on, but I did. Finally I got it done… then it was time to move it into the space I had pictured it to be in, it was perfect, but I needed to make some changes to the things were already there, I ended up rearranging both my closets and kitchen.
I went through my closet taking out clothing I would probably not wear, put it in bags to drop off to consignment and whatever they don’t take I will donate.
It turned out perfectly! I was so happy with the changes I made. I also decided to touch up the paint in the studio. All of which made me feel great, it is amazing how much a little attention to detail can make you feel.
I was exhausted after all this activity, filled with pride of not only having done it, doing all by myself!
Thankful, Grateful & Blessed!
