Hello Well and Cleanly readers! It's Thursday evening and I thought I would give you a true status report on the state of my apartment as the working week is thankfully coming to a close. Although I'm still going to have to deal with yet another day of sub zero weather tomorrow! (I know that has nothing to do with anything, but seriously, it's hard not to talk about this weather.)
Anyway, remember the cleaning schedule idea? I TOTALLY ignored it! Like I wrote that post, was all, "I'm going to try this for the sake of my blog," and now it's Thursday and this is my house:
Yes, I know I have beautiful high ceilings and windows. But let's look a little closer, shall we? That would be a pair of boot warmers and various other wollen delights on my kitchen table. Along with mail and a bottle of wine.
Here we have a blender that I put on the dresser because I ran out of room while making dinner on Tuesday. It's still there. Along with various piles forming.
Yes those are my pajamas on the bathroom floor. They've been there since this morning, thank you very much.
Um...yeah. At least all of those dishes are clean.
Desk situation, actually pretty much always looks like this no matter what.
And the bedroom. Note the made bed though! Mainly the issue here is clothes. I've been avoiding putting my heavy sweater bin back on the top shelf of my closet. Can you blame me?
So to reiterate, Well and Cleanly:
Well and Ugly:
Did anyone of you try and succeed? Please tell me in the comments! Also, if you tried and failed like me, or more like barely even/didn't even try and failed, tell me in the comments too!
This week has been good, if not chilled to the bone, and I feel like I've been inspired and productive in all areas of my writing (blog, novel, class that I'm taking) which is such a great feeling, and one that I know doesn't last forever. I'm trying to appreciate it and use it to stay motivated, hence no cleaning. You know how the saying goes, "a clean house is a sign of a wasted life." Which I obviously don't agree with (duh!) but totally get. And let's face it, my apartment pretty much always looks like this on a Thursday, if I'm really being honest here.
Welcome to my real life. Okay, now I have to go and pick up all that shit.
