The Wrench In The Works

4 min read

I’m again, y’all! Final week was terrible. Completely horrible. I obtained sick on Sunday evening every week in the past, and was fully out for 5 days straight. I spent nearly all day and evening for 5 days in my mattress, solely getting as much as repair meals for Matt, get myself a drink, use the toilet, or let Cooper out.

On high of that, the climate was loopy! Wednesday night, had loopy thunderstorms, twister watches, twister warnings, civil protection sirens blaring throughout us. It was only a loopy and depressing week throughout.

And the kicker? Earlier than I obtained sick, I had deliberate a catered get together for a buddy on Saturday evening. Fortunately, there have been going to be too many individuals to slot in our home for a catered dinner, so we had deliberate it at one other location. However all week, my solely purpose was to get nicely in order that I may make it to the get together that I had deliberate.

One way or the other, seemingly miraculously, after a fully horrible week, I awoke Saturday morning feeling nice. I used to be so relieved! And the get together went off with no hitch and everybody had a good time.

So yesterday, after church and a day spent with my household, I got here residence and needed to face the fact of my home. I used to be reminded of what a buddy stated to me earlier this yr. She stated that after a dialog with me, it struck her that not a single factor will get finished on this home except I do it (or except I take the initiative to get assist). So if a meal will get cooked, that’s on me. If trash will get taken out, that’s on me. If something will get cleaned, that’s on me. If groceries are purchased, that’s on me. If Cooper and Felicity have meals and water, that’s on me. If Cooper is taken out all through the day, that’s on me. Matt can’t assist me with something, so it’s all on me.

And that was by no means so clear as after every week of being sick, after which having to cope with the wake of mess that was left behind. I spent at the very least two hours cleansing final evening, attempting to make some headway in my kitchen, however nonetheless awoke this morning to this mess.

The kitchen was such a catastrophe that I had to herald an enormous contractor bag to get the job finished. A daily kitchen rubbish bag wasn’t sufficient. The ground is completely disgusting. And after two hours of cleansing final evening, I nonetheless didn’t even get all the dishes washed. (I actually did no cleansing up after myself final week. It was all I may do to muster the vitality to cook dinner a meal for Matt, however cleansing up afterwards was out of the query.)

And as of this morning, my front room nonetheless appears like this…

And by some means, I’ve obtained to get this home underneath management and able to host individuals on Wednesday.

Issues by no means appear to go as deliberate, do they? 😀 I had the whole lot labored out. By this time, the studio ground was presupposed to be finished, and the studio cupboards had been presupposed to be put collectively and put into place, leaving my front room free and clear and prepared for visitors on Wednesday, simply in time for our recurrently deliberate as we get again into our regular routine. However then a fairly large wrench was thrown in to the gears, and the whole lot got here to a grinding halt.

Oh nicely. That’s life. Sadly, it appears like all work on the studio goes to need to be postpone till Thursday of this week. Between every now and then, I simply need to get the home wanting extra like a standard, lived-in home once more, and fewer just like the native landfill. 😀 However I’m so glad to be up and about once more, and feeling GREAT once more!
