Today's gift

I’ll be in North Carolina on my birthday, so no party until I get back. Please get me this cake pan so we can really celebrate.

Spring cleaning, in winter.

I made a list the other night (when I couldn’t sleep) of all the things I need to do in order to get our apartment thoroughly cleaned and organized. It’s a fairly long list…we have 5 main rooms, plus the hallway, laundry room, and several storage closets.

But I did manage to get our bedroom tidied yesterday. Unfortunately I’m not a tidy person by nature, so there was a lot of mess to clean up. Mostly it required doing 7 loads of laundry. I had a bright idea a few months ago to do one load a day during the week – whites, darks, lights, the Bwun’s clothes, and towels/bedding. I figured that way there would only ever be one week’s worth of dirty laundry at a time. Guess what idea never got implemented?

I had planned to start organizing the Bwun’s room today, but then I remembered that I have to take my independent study final by next Monday. I should probably start studying…
