clean sheets

the lucky number is no.19!
i have to go see who that is now...
well, miz sigrid, you are the winner!

today is the day i have been postponing all week. major cleanup day. it sucks, but someone has to do it. i have laundry going, beds stripped and the day is 'bout to rumble. i don't know if i am the only one who does this, but i reward myself with something before or after i slave. it always makes me feel less stuck. this morning, i got up superearly and watched cinema paradiso. if you haven't seen it, you must.

now, i must make another doubleshot, vacuum, fold clothes and do the bathrooms. cheers to a cheeky weekend.

Contgratulations 19 - you lucky girl!

I have gotten into this habit of finding a movie on some channel that has commercials, and then cleaning during the commercials. You can get a suprising amount done without feeling like you're slaving... but I have begun to notice recently that I have ADD or something, because I can't sit still for more than 5 minutes at a time. I think I'll have to chunk this practice and try treating myself and then diving in till it's done.

I've seen that movie. I would see it again.

P.S. The Bourne Ultimatum was excellent. I liked it even better than the previous ones.

May I be so bold as to ask what on earth is going on in that picture hanging on the wall?!?!?

It looks like the one man has a bull's head where his own should be and the other man is trying to wrestle him to the ground!!! :)

I'll have to give that reward system a try.

I'm big on the personal reward system, myself.

Sometimes you just have to keep your eyes on that prize!
