The week that was!

(This post is from this past Saturday and I don't feel like re-doing it!)

Finally.....I am sitting down to post! It is a beautiful Saturday morning as the sun comes up over the hill that is in front of our house. Yesterday was gorgeous, too, and I had the day off from watching little Jaylon because his mommy and daddy had to take him to two appointments at Children's Hospital yesterday. He is doing well from all appearances but he is still has to have a colonoscopy and upper GI endoscopy to make sure all is okay because of the complications he had at birth. *sighhhh* I just hate to see him have to go through all of this. *sighhhhh*
Anywayyyyy, yesterday was such a wonderful day because of the sunshine and warm weather. Wow! I opened up the curtains, blinds and windows, not caring if all of the dust floating around in my house showed up garishly! *smile*

I haven't been able to REALLY clean my house good for a few years as I wasn't very mobile and was in so much pain but I have started to get this done.....very slowly. *smile*

I have been cleaning the front bathroom which we have always called Daniel's bathroom because it WAS when he was home but he's been married for three years and we have slowly gotten around to calling it the front bathroom. (ya think?) LOL

I redecorated it several years ago in a fish theme about which Daniel kind of complained because he wanted it done in Ohio State decor and why didn't I ask him first. Hmmmm.....let me's my house? I'm doing the work? I liked the fish decor? *smile* I started cleaning this bathroom from bottom to top. I know, I know, it's supposed to be "top to bottom" but, actually, I kind of started in the middle. I cleaned everything! I was taking down the little pictures and things on the wall opposite the sink, I noticed where the moisture on the walls that builds up when you are taking a shower had caused a few runs/streaks, so I commenced to just wiping them off, only to discover that the wall was reallyyyyy yucky. *sighhhhh* Not being able to reach that high without a step-stool, which Daniel and Erin had taken to their house, I decided to put that off for another day.

There is only one thing standing in my way: I have these cute fish decals all the way around the top of my bathroom wall. I have to take all of those down before I can wash the wall up that high. Sooooo, I'm thinking today might be the day to do this, after I get a few other things done!

Now, I've never been a big "spring-cleaning" or "fall-cleaning" person, but I am so thankful that i am able to clean more thoroughly now when I want to.

Ed and I washed my car yesterday, cleaned the inside really good, polished the windows! And I actually went barefoot outside for a little while!

Sometimes I feel like a little kid! I mean, there are so many things that I can do now...once that I've recovered from the hip replacements I've had. I still have some lower back issues that lay me low occasionally but all-in-all, I have a new lease on life!

It's so rough to think of such a little guy going through all those tests!

And I am so glad to hear you're able to do more and feel more like your old self!
