I don't know if any of you all will remember that I posted here for a little while.  I actually made great strides during that time  -- going from being a horrible housekeeper too embarrassed to ever let anyone in my house to keeping the house so clean that my husband was starting to feel uncomfortable about it.  orngbiggrin.gif  Then I had to stop posting and stop cleaning for the most part (kept up with the laundry and dishes but tried my damnedest to ignore everything else) because I was studying for the bar exam.  Well, I took it, and then I took a week off, and then I was sick for a week, and now I'm raring to go! smile.gif

 

But now I feel like I'm starting practically from scratch.  I have, thank god, figured out how to handle my incontinent dog (which was causing me lots of grief when I was here before) and I still have my cool microfiber mop setup, which I didn't have when I got started last time.  But I think I'm going to have to have to do what I did last time  --  start at the front of the house and work my way back with big projects.  Tomorrow, I think I'm going to tackle the curtains I've been planning to make for the living room.  smile.gif

I remember you! Welcome back! Life happens, ya know. The thing I noticed is that when things get messy, it seems to take less time to get it back to where it was the next time around. Hopefully you'll be surprised.

Hi!  smile.gif  I'm hoping that's true.  I do think I learned a thing or two last time around.  Even though I haven't been keeping up with stuff, the place is a lot neater.  Dh, oddly, has been cleaning quite a lot!  

 

I thought I was over my sinus infection and I did a bunch of cleaning and felt really good saturday evening and then yesterday I woke up feeling so, so horrible.  I have never had a sinus infection before and I had no idea how debilitating it would be.  So, I broke down and got antibiotics (which I hate, hate, hate the idea of) yesterday and I think I am progressing now.  I'm going to take it easy today and take my 3 year old to an air conditioned indoor play place and KNIT.  smile.gif  And then maybe tonight when it's a little cooler, I'll jump into some chores.
