So, I didn't go for a run today. I figured I would take today as a rest day and do a run monday, tuesday, wednesday and then really taper and not run thursday, Friday or saturday. Sounds like a good plan to me if I do say so myself.
Back to cleaning. I vacuumed up a storm, then took off the hose and got on my hands and knees and did all the cracks and crevices around the floor. After I did that around the whole place I then scrubbed the bathroom floor, toilet, counters, mirrors etc. The bathroom hasn't ever sparkled as much as it is right now. I even vacuumed the couches to try to get the fur off. That didn't work so well. Good thing they are slip covers over 25+ year old couches and they will be going into the washer soon! I also finished four loads of laundry. Oh yeah, I forgot about the kitchen. I re-organized the cabinets, washed the counter tops, put some appliances away that I don't use often and re-arranged the items we leave out on the counter.
I feel like things are a lot more stream lined and cleaner now. Well cleaner because they are clean, but also not so cluttery. I absolutely hate clutter and can't stand nick nacks that collect dust. Must be the way I grew up. My grandmother was a huge pack rat and so my mom went the total opposite direction and would throw everything away. I think I definitely inherited more from my mom.
Speaking of cleaning. I am absolutely obsessed with Seventh Generation products. I used to buy Method, but didn't really like the products all that much. I then switched to Myers, however the products by Myers is really expensive. Some things I will still buy because I like them so much but others just wasn't worth the price. So, being a good Vermonter, I wanted to buy local (even though now 7th gen is a huge company). I am glad I tried them out. I love their bathroom disinfecting spray, their dish soap and their all purpose spray. I have tried their laundry detergent before and enjoyed that as well. I am planning on going back once my Tide runs out. I like 7th gen because things are clean, but you aren't killing yourself with those harsh fumes. You can get no scent or they also have scented items too. I love the lemongrass scent. Just smells so fresh! LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Ok. I promise, tomorrow is back to running! Be prepared to see my "rough draft" of my Key Bank City Marathon playlist for NEXT SUNDAY! Definitely nervous, but excited!
OH i forgot the best part of my 1950's housewife day I had. I made a chicken pot pie! I will post the recipe along with photos of the finished pie!
