Busy Weekend

This morning I feel like I am recovering from the weekend! Although I will never complain about two days off, I might have filled the weekend with too many chores and activities. Thus, the reason I now feel like I need another weekend to recover from the weekend!

I made the fatal mistake of mentioning to D that I wanted to straighten up and reorganize the bathroom and hall closets. D just so happens to LOVE to organize and move things around!! (This is the man, after all, who organized my closet for me as an anniversary gift!) Anyway, he got so excited and happy to hear me embracing the idea of cleaning and organizing over a weekend!! He started suggesting ways to use the extra space, ran to target to get “organizing supplies,” began moving furniture around for no explicable reason, and shouted helpful phrases to me while I was sorting through all my junk like, “When in doubt, throw it out!” Hmm…

At about 4 pm on Sunday, I was ready to throw in the towel, but of course, I couldn’t quit because the closets and bathroom now looked ten times worse than when I started! To make a long story short, I finished the project and things do look a lot better. However, today is our Thanksgiving luncheon at work, so I was up making cupcakes into the night after that long project. Oh dear!

The silver lining to this story is that I am now so grateful to be sitting peacefully at my desk at work, sipping coffee, and enjoying the relative calm of a clean desk, a quiet workspace, and a comfortable chair…Aahh!

Have a wonderful day!!

you know it's been a weekend of too much work when you look forward to Monday morning...but the end result is worth it. I wish D could come to my house.
