Status 4-10-15*


Crazy LONG day of cleaning! My designer bathroom is BEAUTIFUL but is the world’s worse bathroom to clean. 7, count ’em 7 types of surfaces, ALL needing a different cleaner and/or method. Every thing that could be a single surface has a bevel. Every thing that could be in arm’s reach is two feet about my head. Cleaning is a dizzying feat of balance, step stools and tub grab bars. I need a special cupboard JUST for the dang master bath cleaning products.

Note to self: SCREW LOOKS go practical next time!

Also did the master bedroom from top to bottom. (Thank GOD I didn’t let my designer talk me into dumping my favorite drapes that can actually be washed and rehung in one day). Moved it all, washed it all. Dusted it all, vacuumed months of cat hair out of everything. WOW, I even slept without waking from being stuffed up by allergies. I guess I need to continue keeping things up. I breathe much better!


HOORAY! Cleaning is about done, just a few minor jobs. I need to finish washing all of the bedding and tidy a few drawers, but overall DONE, DONE, DONE! I am exhausted.
But today BC Sandy and I are taking a walk down to the local park. I thought about weaseling yesterday when I was so tired, but then let myself be brave and told myself, “No dang it, you WANT to see Sandy, don’t make an excuse”. Instead I went to bed early so as to have energy today. Boy I’m glad I did and I’m really looking forward to the chance to catch up with my in-person BC friend.

BTW, if you are in, or near the Los Angeles area, or are planning to be, I would love to take a walk or hike with you if our schedules permit. Let me know and you TOO can experience the beautiful Descanso Gardens or set some rocks in the Upper Zen places. Recording for the show is optional. 🙂


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. 🙂

    No matter how tired I am, I never regret doing something like going for a walk or a bike ride. I only regret when I don’t do it. Have a wonderful walk with BC Sandy. I would love to go for a hike, walk or bike ride with you and will be sure to look you up the next time I’m in LA J. That might not be for a while so don’t hold your breath. Hubby and I did our Pacific Coast Highway bucket list trip last summer. We didn’t get as far south as LA – maybe next time.

    Have a wonderful weekend of fun and frolic now that the cleaning is done! The sun has been shining here and we’re getting some great spring weather so with any luck it will stick around for a while.

      Hi Nola, well, if you are ever RELIVING the bucket list item, let me know. Sandy and I did have an awesome walk and talk, and it was fun making our first “duet” episode for day 109. Hooray for sunny spring days, it soooo lifts the spirits. I hope your weekend is filled with fun adventure too. xoxoxoxox

    Wanna come and help me get my house under control? I’m so proud of you for taking the leap and getting the house clean. It is so easy to get behind and then get overwhelmed. My house is under construction right now, so I truly don’t even know where to begin. Just trying to keep the rooms behind closed doors clean, at least!

      Er No, no thank you, no thanks, no NO NO NO! 😉 I Soooo get your construction woe. It was blasted frustrating when our house was torn apart for months and months and I had to tote items from one room to the next, including windmill clawing cats. Special house HUGS for you, my friend xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
