I’m down to 13 days left on my countdown to family coming in for the holidays….I am so excited and ready to see them! I just need to hire me a maid to clean my apartment first. How can an apartment get so messy?! I don’t even have kids yet and I can still feel the stress of the holidays settling in….
Whoever came up with Spring Cleaning was smart, but they failed to get me into the craze. Spring came and went without the cleaning…..then there was Summer and where the heck did Fall go? I think it literally fell through the cracks…Now it’s Winter and uh, my “equal opportunity” mess(as I like to call it) is staring me in the face and taunting me! Looks like I’m going to have to do a heavy duty Winter Cleaning. Well…I still have 13 days, right? Uh….Why doesn’t that sound like plenty of time when I sit here and think about it?
I have finished the Christmas shopping. I have even done all the Christmas wrapping. Decorating? Not so much. In fact, I was thinking I might skip it. Then I decided the other day I MAY do some after all….after the Winter Cleaning. The shopping and wrapping seem a cinch compared to the thought of all the cleaning and decorating though…..This next week is going to be one LONG week.
So here’s my important list for this week……Blog daily. Finish my guest post for a fellow blogger(which I still have to start). Take wrapped gifts for my side of the family over to my Nanny’s. Clean every single room of the apartment by the weekend AND vacuum so my father-in-law can shampoo the carpets this weekend. Organize the den closet so I can reach the Christmas decorations. Decorate the house for Christmas. Find some time to read so I don’t go insane…along with finding time to eat and sleep. Then when it’s all finished, take a HUGE nap! 🙂
I think I can do this…..I think I can…I think I can…..Keep Repeating like in those Thomas the Tank Engine books!
*If all else fails…At least I know I can manage the napping! ;)*
