I confess: Because of the plumbing problems we had last week I've been furiously cleaning the house since Wednesday afternoon. This is obviously not my normal MO, but both bathrooms ended up with raw sewage on the floors and the plumbers tracked poop-mud throughout the house. I'm going above and beyond just cleaning the floors, though, and I hope this burst of cleaning energy doesn't burn me out and I can actually manage to keep the house semi-decent for a while.
I confess: All this house cleaning makes me want to start decorating the house again. I feel like I did so much when we first moved in and then just......stopped. I mean, it's not like I'm not super busy and all, but there are still so many boxes that need to be unpacked and even though I pretty much painted the entire house, there are still things that need painting. It doesn't help that I don't really have any shelves to to put the stuff that's still in boxes (that I want to keep - things like photos and books, not just crap that I've lived without for 3+ years) and no money to buy shelves/bookcases right now. I know it'll eventually get done and we'll eventually have the money to buy the things we need to get the house more put together, but man, I really just want to throw myself into it right now!
