My eldest daughter is today just feeling better, so it has been a quiet but messy seven days around here.
Last year we managed to not get any flu in the house so we were do for something to hit and to hit hard like it did!
I think it has been since I was pregnant with my oldest son (who is 7) that I have been as sick as I was this week! It was yucky!!!
Enough about that though!!!
My husband left yesterday to go to Southern Ontario to celebrate his Dad's 80th Birthday with the family!!!! WOW!!! 80 years, that is incredible!!!
For those that have known me for very long know that I tend to struggle with eating healthy while he is away but not this time, I feel focused and determined!
It helps that the scale is still moving in the downward direction so my motivation is to see it continue, my little peak yesterday at the scale has me down another pound so far this week.
It is much harder to stay focused when no matter what you do the scale stays the same so this scale movement is GREAT timing!
Yesterday I spent the entire day cleaning...DEEP cleaning! Washing floors, walls, corners, windows, getting rid of dust and webs, then dusting built in cabinets and organizing shelves.
It started out that I was just going to clean out the germ infested areas!!! Like the bathroom and commonly touch surfaces but because my husband is gone I had the opportunity to do it good!
Today I will hit the second level, mop and pail in hand!!!
A clean house makes me happy!
I consider my house clean...mind you it was always cleaner before I became a Mom but some the jobs I did yesterday are more of the kind that get done only a couple of times a year so this feels awesome!
