Well, I'm getting back to normal. I've felt pretty good this week and have had to take fewer rest breaks (i.e. naps). In fact, I'm ready to start Fall cleaning. It's all I can do not to tear into something but I know I need to be careful for a bit longer.
I have let this house go the whole time I was going to school. After that I was having so much trouble with my gall bladder that I just felt bad most of the time. Then there was the surgery which has been such a blessing. I'm really feeling good - didn't realize how bad I felt until I started feeling so good now!
Tonight I went into the "boys" bathroom to get some shampoo out of their shower. Steph and I share a bath, Steve has his, and Justin uses it to shower in and then finishes up his stuff in the downstairs bathroom. I pulled back the shower curtain and almost fainted! The boys have not been cleaning their bathroom. It's been an understanding that since I have 2 1/2 bathrooms to take care of that they would clean theirs and Steph and I take care of ours. Justin does the one downstairs.
It is beyond all comprehension how anyone could get into a shower that dirty. Men must not care if they shower in filth - at least the men in this house. If it hadn't been so ugly I would have taken before and after pictures. Needless to say, when I got done with my bath I went into theirs to clean. I took down the shower curtain liner and threw it away. Pulled the shower curtain down, pulled up the rugs and threw those in the washer. Then I started on the shower walls and tub with Comet. I filled the tub with hot water, added bleach, and let it sit. After that was done I put on gloves and tackled the toilet including using a pumice stone on the hard water stains. Tomorrow I will do the floor and the sink - figured I better not push my luck by doing any more cleaning tonight.
But that shower is so clean now that it just sparkles. Hopefully the rest of my house will look like that before long!
