So, how do you start blogging again after you haven't blogged in almost 2 months. I think I will just start.
Today... my first day of official vacation time. Its actually my last day of work, but I am taking a "sick" day and I am not sick. But I am home today preparing for a routine colonoscopy which will take place tomorrow morning at 7 AM. When I booked my appt 3 months ago, I chose the first day of my vacation so that it would be done and I wouldn't have to think about it the rest of the summer. BUT, I didn't realize I had a whole day of fasting and "cleansing", the day BEFORE! Well, no harm done, I worked longer days to get everything done in 4 days instead of 5 and I am not only ready for vacation, but I am all ready for the start of the new school year, as well!
So, in honor of my "Cleansing" day, I dedicate today to cleansing my house. Not the normal dusting, cleaning, laundry stuff... this is the deep depths cleaning. I have cleaned out my pantry, my food cupboards and I am moving onto my linen closet and Tupperware and dish cupboards next.
I have FILLED a blue recycle bag with boxes from old crackers, cake mixes, rices & garbage bag boxes. I have discovered that I must have an addiction to buying crackers... using half the box and then leave the rest to get stale and old. But while I have this weakness, I think Terry has the same sort of addiction but for garbage bags. We have several opened, half used boxes of blue, clear and black garbage bags!!!! The other thing I have a lot of is dusting supplies. I have swiffer hand dusting thingies, I have floor swiffer sheets, I have "Endust" dust sheets... geesh! I think I better start using them. I threw out several popcorn flavorings.... I don't remember ever buying... and when you need a knife to get the "powder" out of the jar... its time to throw it out... I threw out sprinkles from Home Sense... dip mixes and flavored tea powders... YEAH!!! And the best part about today is that its GARBAGE day... and all my composted "old and Stales" as well as my blue bag of boxes is out at the street.... waiting for the next stage of their existence!
So while I suffer the trials of Jello, Gatorade and gas bubbles, my cupboards are feeling the refreshing results of a good cleanse (a lot sooner than I do)!
