I knew I was feeling better when I woke up at 5:30.....sort of my usual wake up call no matter if I'm working or not. At least, 38 days into retirement it's still a habit that'll likely take a long time to ease out of. Of course I thought it was Friday until I looked at the phone :D I never knew how much my work schedule helped me with what ever the day of the week it is, lol.
Mid morning I mentioned to Romeo that I was going to clean the fridge ~ not my favorite chore. Even though I took a photo showing where I put the shelves, I still had a struggle re-fitting them back in. Sheesh. Romeo helped me with drying and stuff, so it was a real collaboration. After that, we were both tired again ~ I swear it's awful doing something you would normally make part of your day, and suddenly you need lunch and a couple hours break. So.....
We made popcorn and watched Moonfall. Then I started tackling the filing cabinet, where I still had ALL the check stubs from the employer before my last one.......and lots of other stuff that I waited to do until retirement. I have put aside 80% of that crap to be shredded. I still have 2 more drawers to do.
Last week (you know, before the barf fest) I did a total clean out of the linen closet. Threw away so much crap, set aside unused linens to donate. I even have empty space on a shelf!
Maybe I am substituting cleaning and organizing for work, but it sure feels good to accomplish things I've been putting off for so long. Those check stubs I talked about? They were from 5 freaking years ago. What the hell was I saving them for?
Love y'all..... 365
