17 September 2007

So it was an off-kilter day. I did get the basement cleaned up. For those of you who've been around for a while, you'll remember that I spent weeks cleaning it out. Over the summer, especially after vacation, I've brought things down there without putting them away in their proper places. Everything's neat and tidy again and it was a good feeling to gaze over the large expanse of open floor. I finally got outside in the late afternoon and spent some time cutting things back in the garden. Then I showered and went to Em's boyfriend's soccer game. It was pretty exciting, but they lost, 3-4. I'd really like to see a winning game sometime.

I've had a 'floating anxiety' all day about my test results. I've got to try some of that 'smile therapy.' Time to put this day to rest.

Ilene...that plate of food really did feed three of us. I only ate 2 slices of potato, and the shrimp were really big. The plate's big too.

Kyrie...You asked what crafts I did. I was a big-time rubber stamper. I never thought I'd stop. I'm only taking a break.

Andrew...I get e-mail notification when people leave comments. Since I was cleaning in the room with the computer, I was right there to hear it every time. I always check my e-mail and clean it out. Habit, ya know?

I cleaned house late yesterday evening so I know that good feeling of gazing over your efforts. All my laundry is washed, folded, and hung up. The pyramid of soda cans by my computer is thrown away. The dishes are washed and in the cabinet. Feels good, huh? Have a great day today back at work. I will be thinking of you.

It's funny how having everything sparking and clean can brighten up any mood.

Want to come work on my garage now that you are done with the basement??? LOL

I hope there's lots of smiling and a lot less anxiety today.

it must be cleaning weather 'cause i've been taking my time and cleaning up for the past 3 days. i'm about to clean my blinds now so they'll be sparking white, then i'll put up new curtains.

so how do you get your computer to say, "you've got mail?" mine chimes or rings, but i'd love to hear "you've got mail" like in the movie.

Cleaning my basement left me with bronchitis. I actually got a note from my doctor that I'm not allowed to clean the basement any more!
