Did I mention our air conditioner is not working?
I decided to get some vacuuming done and went to the fridge to get it. It was cool in there but I realized that is not where I keep my vacuum. Yes, the heat has fried my brain. It's not so bad if I am laying directly in front of a fan in a room with a great cross breeze and minimal clothing. But if I want to get anything done in this house right now - I am prepared to sweat.
Thank goodness sweating releases toxins. I can kill two birds with one stone! I am also reacting to something, so I not only have sweat dripping off of my arms when I sit in my house but I am coughing, blowing my nose, and wheezing. I thought I would take some paperwork out on the porch but the wind is kicking up some dust and that just makes me sneeze so I came back in the house.
And started to sweat again. It is HOT here in the Midwest.
Job hunting is going well and I have an interview this afternoon and one phone interview scheduled for Thursday morning. I was getting very discouraged last week because I gave myself a deadline of August 15 to have full time employment - with pay. Preferably very good pay. And hopefully benefits.
I have enjoyed having time to reacquaint myself with my house and de-clutter, paint, and clean. I am still not done. I sometimes look around and ask myself, "Just how dirty was this house? And what DID the cleaning lady do?" I have given away so much, but the more I give away the more I find to give away!
If I am not working yet, I plan to spend July finishing my basement. It is cooler down there, but also dustier. I must finish one major project however before I go back to work and I decided the basement has to be the one.
|Sad looking Christmas Corner|
I will start with my Christmas Corner. Then, I can have one more "somewhat of a garage sale" to sell everything else I find worth selling, box up what I know is still usable but not worth selling to give away, and toss the rest. Then I will paint the shelves, wash the windows, have our vents cleaned, change the filters on the furnace, and vacuum and scrub the floor really well. Then, at least I can work knowing one area of my house is basically done.
In the meantime though I have to finish dusting and vacuuming upstairs in the sauna.
I just might lose 10 pounds this week!
