I’m not the girl I used to be

November 22, 2008

So, most of y’all know that I am a super duper, anal-retentive, obsessive-compulsive cleaning machine.  I mean, I used to bleach the refrigerator twice a month for God’s sake (yes, the entire fridge – I would take all the food and shelving out and go nuts)!  There would be days where I would literally spend the entire day cleaning (we’re talking 10 or more hours doing nothing but cleaning) – Jeff would always call me “Meth Maids”, LOL!  Anyway, I just don’t have the energy for it anymore.  Seriously. 

This morning when I woke up, I had it in my head that I was going to clean the entire house, top to bottom, and then put up our Christmas decorations (I know, I know, it’s early – but we’ll be out of state next weekend).  I started at about 7:30, and by noon I was completely wiped out.  Like I had just run a marathon, against the wind, backwards, and barefoot – wiped out.  Ridiculous.  And I only got done with the upstairs…the downstairs hasn’t been touched.  My back hurts, my neck hurts, my hands hurt – hell, even my feet hurt!  Again…ridiculous! 

I guess I’m just going to have to start listening to my body more – and when I need a break (like right now), I’ll take one.  I did take a nice, long, hot shower and use my super moisturizing body wash and lotion, so I feel a ton better.  The Christmas decorations may just have to wait until tomorrow though…

    Take it easy there super duper lady. If the lights have to wait until you return it will be okay:0)

    Christmas can wait until you return. 😉 I swear…you and I are sisters in a past life. I’m OCD too and have slowed down quite a bit as well. (I never went so far to bleach the fridge though!)

    Wow! You are one crazy cleaning machine even if you *only* cleaned for 4.5 hours today! Take it easy on yourself, you’re growing twins afterall! 😉
