I have done it! The apartment is SPOTLESS! It’s such a great feeling. I’ve been wanting to get it done forever. Tomorrow we’re steam cleaning the carpet and shopping for our last few decorations AND Christmas gifts!!!
This evening has been so relaxing. I turned on some jazzy Christmas music, lit some candles, and got a shower before Stephen came home. When I got out it was flurrying little snowflakes. So pretty! After, I made some amazingly delicious turkey chili. It was soooo good. I’m definitely keeping that recipe!
Stephen and Ashley are doing their podcast right now. I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to be doing the few weeks while I’m up here. One thing I know I’m going to do is get my stuff together for my residencies. I know of three I am definitely applying for. I have a good friend doing one of them right now, and she’s going to see if I can go shadow here on the 13th! I hope it works out, because that residency is my first choice!
I don’t have much else to say, so I’m off to go figure out my schedule for the next few weeks….and finish my laundry…..sigh. >_<
So I have successfully organized and cleaned out our entire apartment - except for the bookshelves…which I’m doing today. It’s so nice. Everything is easy to find and so accessible. So today is the dreaded… cleaning day! *insert dramatic music here*. The day that I actually dust, run the sweeper, clean up the layers of soap scum and hair in our bathroom, and do the pile of laundry in the corner of our newly organized closet. Hope you enjoyed the pictures below of it. It was a big undertaking to say the least. 0_o Hopefully I can get everything cleaned today so that tomorrow all Stephen and I have to do is steam clean the carpet. This weekend we’re hoping to finished decorating and hang all our stuff on the walls. Then we can finally put up the Christmas Tree!
I can’t believe a whole week of my break is already gone. I’m thankful I can get all these things done that have been weighing on my mind. I’m really excited for the weekend too. Well off to go get started on cleaning. I had a late start this morning and I have to get cleaned up myself and chili on the stove before Stephen gets home! Off I go!
After pictures!!!!! So organized. Woohoo!
