Nothing like getting new furniture to get you motivated to clean up a bit!
Funny... here I've been in a nasty slump that it even made it difficult for me to get my daily chores done... then at the news of getting a new dinning set, I end up cleaning my dining room, kitchen, living room, dusted, got a couple of loads of laundry done and washed the floors!! It was as if someone let the energizer bunny loose!
Boy if I knew that's all it would take to get me going... I would have gone out and bought new furniture sooner! Love this endorphin like feeling!
I tell you the human brain never ceases to amaze me. Funny how the most unsuspected things in life can trigger motivation, as if it was a much needed drug. If I ever get into a slump again (I will avoid it all costs!), I will be sure to have my doctor prescribe me new furniture!!
|Notice my clean white floors!|
Once the set was in it's new home... it was like placing the cherry on top of a sundae. It was such a nice feeling having accomplished so much in one day.
I started to slow down a bit, looking for something else to clean yet taking into consideration how long it would take to accomplish the task. Then my attention was taken away by Calley's Minnie Mouse voice (and yes, she does sound like Minnie Mouse)... "Mommy could we please snuggle and watch a movie ?" ... That's all it took for me to finish for the day.
Once in snuggling position, we set to watch Hook with Robin WIlliams. I thought it would be a great movie for Calley to see, however we needed to wait 25 minutes for it to start. Next thing I knew I had slept through the end of the one movie, and then most of Hook. I guess I was due for a much needed nap, or better yet a re-boost... because then Calley and I whipped up a delicious dinner. Steak, basmati rice and a lovely salad.
