After traveling for two weeks, I can tell you that the first thing I want to do when I return home is nest. This involves some combination of cleaning, doing laundry, walking the dog through the neighborhood and napping. It also doesn’t hurt to go out with friends and enjoy being with H again.
Took me two days, but I sorted, washed and folded 6 loads of laundry. Sheesh. It’s my least favorite chore. I also cleaned the kitchen, bathroom and master bedroom. Being that we only have a 900 sq foot 2bed-2bath apartment, I can’t imagine trying to clean a house. But I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.
For now, I am hoping we can figure out some budget to hire a cleaning crew at least 1x per month, if not 2x. I used to think that cleaning was part of who I am, but I am realizing that things being clean and enjoying cleaning are two different things. The more I want to focus on my own stuff, the less I want to clean.
Until then, though, you can find me vacuuming as Carter Cash’s started shedding again. Good times.
