Status 4-02-15*


Long slog cleaning – but I got the family room, hall and kitchen vacuumed, washed, dusted and otherwise made NOT mortifying. Of course, I still have SEVERAL other rooms to tackle in the next week or so. Sigh, it IS like going on a diet after weeks and weeks of bingeing. A Cleaning diet. BLECH. And I love that JUST as much. Here’s an Instagram Peek at my progress yesterday:

Props to Mark, he, without being nagged, asked or otherwise cajoled, has been tackling his areas – namely cat abode, stairway carpet, some bathrooms (bless you honey, you ROCK!),

This totally exhausted me. Wow, I didn’t do half of what I used to when cleaning, and it kicked my BUTT! I must be out of cleaning shape. How can I hike up the mountain several times per week, ride my bike UPHILL and be ready for action, yet two hours hauling a vacuum around knocked me silly?! What’s up with that?

I ALMOST weaseled out of writing group, but since I didn’t want to be a two week in a row weasel, having missed out last week due binge related distress, strapped on my bravery and fortitude and went.

Fun! But I ALSO had a flare up of tendonitis in my right hand (caused by said cleaning perhaps?) which made it darn near impossible to write long hand in my notebook. Did my best however, and still came up with a very, very short story.


Slept in, Hooray! Off to therapy and some shopping at Trader Joe’s. Then the living room is next on the cleaning list. Hoping to get it done much more quickly as it is a smaller space than yesterday, and I missed out on yesterday’s planned voice practice. If I have to pick one today, it will be practice, but I hate to lose my cleaning momentum. SO easy to fall back in the “I’ll start cleaning tomorrow” rut. Then I’ll start writing the next show. Many new BCs to greet, which is exciting. Hey guys, could use some AUDIO here. hint hint. Why not call or talk about YOUR cleaning feelings. Does it make you feel better? Are you a cleaning avoider like moi? Any other cleaning tales or thoughts? Go ahead and ‘Come Clean” Hahahaha. Sorry, I’m punny without my first coffee. Have a great day BCs!


How about you?

Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.

*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.

PS If you wish to sign up for email notification of blog postings and shows going live (not these status reports) enter your email where it says: “SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL”. This blog subscription widget is located to the right on computers and on some tablets, and below the posts on smart phones and on other types of tablets.

PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂

    I did my spring cleaning last weekend and used the time to get closer to catching up with your podcasts! Cleaning is no fun but that made it a lot easier. Now this long Easter weekend I can relax and maybe get out on my bike if the weather cooperates. Maybe I’ll even be able to sleep in (good luck with that!). I would love to have a Trader Joe’s to go to but, alas, no such luck with that either :-(.
