I vowed this week my calendar would be clear so I could take the time to knock off the things on my list that have left me overwhelmed and wishing the worst (a very backwards point of view for me). My calendar is plainly and beautifully empty until I get things around my apartment in order and looking normal.
the thing is, I am the daughter of a Southern Woman who can clean a toilet so well you'll ask to eat off of it. She cleans well and she cleans fast. And when we were children we were not allowed to clean anything but our bedrooms. So, as an adult, I have an instinct (or retribution) to clean like a Southern Woman jacked up on electrolyte infused water. I'd like to announce (DU-DNA-NA-NA): my apartment is clean, closet organized, bills in order and new decorative ideas in cue.
I still plan to spend the week with myself (and my puppy). Our fist outing will be a picnic dinner this evening in My Neighborhood.
