I took yesterday off to stay home and do some cleaning. I've been frustrated for a while with the state of my bedroom but haven't felt like I've had the time to do anything about it. Of course if I read Flylady I'd know that I had the time, but I don't so I didn't. All my free time I end up hanging out with friends or watching stuff on t.v. Finally it occurred to me that I get a day off for my birthday to be used anytime in October and if I took that day then there wouldn't be anything good on t.v. and all my friends would be at work. So I took it. I got to sleep for about 10 hrs., do 6 loads of laundry, put away all my cd's, do dishes, put all my commentaries and Bibles back in order, put several items that had come up for various trips this summer back into storage, and consolidate all the random papers lying around my room onto my desk. Now I've got clean clothes and a clean floor and a two feet deep stack of stuff on my desk, which becomes a project for some other time. Still I'm pretty happy with my progress yesterday. The only sad part was that I finished both my birthday Riesen and my French Silk Pie. At least I've still got the Dove dark chocolate.
