Spring cleaning

Spring cleaning

Good morning world. I’ve been a busy beaver. Now that I’m feeling better I went back to cleaning. Yesterday I took on my nightstand. This is partly due to the fact that some of the items I would normally put in these draws have been thrown up on my computer desk. A not so steady area on a good day. This is also a place in my room I hit with my wheelchair weekly. To my own defense it is close to where I park my chair every night when I sleep. When I get up to use the bathroom, I’m not always paying attention to the space around me. Problem is every time I knock into it, all this stuff falls down. Then Minx comes running to see what he could chew on faster than I could pick things up. The other day it was the outside plastic frame to my Marshmallow’s paw print. I can’t replace his paw print, I almost had a heart attack. Thankfully paw print fine frame around that not so much. I said immediately I need to fix this.

So I started with the night stand by my side of the bed which has become a junk draws. In these draws I have everything from custom jewelry to greeting cards. It was completely disorganized to say the least. I accumulated a bag full of garbage from two draws. I’d say this cleaning was long overdue. I have to hit the other side now which has important papers on the top and office supplies on the bottom. At least in there I know what it is, but the last thing I feel like doing is going through those papers. It’s all my Social Security stuff, Medicaid stuff and everything for Mikayla from her school IEP to her cochlear implant‘s. I have to sort through all of that and organize it and I really don’t want to do that. Unfortunately it is also something that is long overdue. My daughter just graduated college, there’s a lot of stuff in there I don’t need for her anymore. However, there’s a lot of stuff in there someone might one day need for me. My job was Medicaid, I know every paper I need, nobody else would make sense out of what’s in there. I’ll save that for later in the week because today I’m hitting something else.

Today my daughter and I are doing the storage closet. I’ve had this closet since I moved into the apartment over three years ago. 3/4 of the stuff in there I don’t even know what’s there. If it’s 3 1/2 years and I didn’t need it , chances are I’m not going to. My storage unit is not that big and we both have many other things that need to go in there at this point. So that is what’s on our list of things to do today. She needs the space for some of her apartment items she doesn’t need now but will if and when she moves out. We are lucky we have the space in the building. There is a long waiting list for storage units. I got lucky when I moved in to be able to get one.

That is my cleaning objective for today. I also have my hair appointment later so time (and energy) is limited. Hopefully I don’t overdo it because I can easily do that which never works out well. Right now I’m feeling good. I’m ready to go. I’m waiting on my daughter who is coming home from New Jersey. Hoping everyone had a wonderful long weekend.
