Cleaning house

I woke up at 4 am and decided to start on the house, saying I would only go for like an hour. It is amazing what you can get done in an hour...ok probably closer to 2 hours by the time I stopped. What did I do, well....

1. cleaned kitchen, mopped, swept, clean out the fridge, straightened cupboards
2. clean out drawers and closet in got rid of fat clothes.
3. got the laundry ready to go and started.
4. changed sheets and deep clean bedroom.

Then after I was done with that I went for a 3 mile walk! I feel so FREAKING good. I almost sat down and cried this morning after I finished cleaning. It makes me feel so much better when everything is in it's place. If only I would keep it like that. I still have to do the bathroom, but that will be a breeze. then I am going to go to the movie this morning. $5 movies before noon. I am going to see The Soloist. Then over to see my Sweeet Nadine. The sweet little old lady that I have helped take care for 2 years is unresponsive and not eating, so I know that it won't be long now. I was so sad last night coming out of her house to know that she won't ever make me laugh again. I love her so much. Her family made me feel like their family and I will miss the relationship that I have had with them. I always maintain the relationship with the families, but it's never like it was. is the only thing that is for sure in this life!

I am feeling better today, much better. I have been tapering off my zoloft, and I have been feeling kind of weird. I had a really bad with draw from Paxil about 8 years ago, so I am being careful, that could also account for why I have been more anxious over the past couple of days. I have talked with the doctor, I am going to start on hormones. So we'll see what happens. I am hoping this will help me out with a number of things. Time will tell. Making good decisions today. Good eating, moving and most of all good THINKING. Thanks for all your encouraging words.

Have a good weekend, and be positive!


  1. You are right - we are morning-person sisters! I'm waiting around to go to a festival. Been ready for like, ever!

    Isn't the feeling of accomplishment wonderful so early in the morning?

    I'm sorry to hear of your friend's illness.

    Wishing you a great day!

  2. WTG on housecleaning. Wanna come help me???

    Enjoy the movie!

  3. Awesome on the cleaning - don't you just love that feeling of accomplishment? Enjoy that movie - I hear it's wonderful!

    Sorry about your friend. It's hard to see someone decline, but you are sweet to be there for her and her family.

    Hang in there with the tapering off - just do it really slow and hopefully you won't get many bad side effects. Good for you for getting off those mind-alterers!

  4. Congrats on the awesome housework!

    Hang in there with the meds, keep your doc informed and you will feel better soon

  5. Wow, you've had a blast of energy! I picked at my house, but didn't get even close to finishing.

    Good luck with the hormones. I hope everything works out for you!


Tell me what you think!
