Surprisingly it was a lot! I made the bed, put random clothes away, picked up the living room, did the dishes, picked up my office and got my of the kitchen cleaned before the buzz went off. Since I was being so productive, I just kept cleaning for another 15 minutes or so and now the whole place looks much better!
My level of enjoyment as I watched The Desperate Housewives of Orange County was entirely intensified by my clean, organized surroundings. For all those times that I hesitate to get things done because it seems like it will take SO long, I just completely proved to myself that it doesn't take long at all. I would still like to vacuum today and maybe get some laundry done, but the apartment looks so much better and I just know I will be productive all day because of that motivated cleaning frenzy of a morning I had.
This morning I also decided to be extra sweet to my husband and I made him his favorite breakfast (egg in the whole) because he came home last night bearing gifts! He brought me a super soft and cozy fleece from a company called Bench that I had never heard of, a cute little pink watch that is made of a stretch material and really durable, so I can wear it when I workout (he knows me so well), and this adorable little flower thingy for hanging my razor in the shower.
What a sweetheart!
He told me to think of something fun to do tonight, so I am brainstorming what we can do. There are some good movies at the English movie theater so that might be fun...
1. What is your idea of a good date with your significant other?
2. What is the most thoughtful gift you ever got from your honey?
3. If you could press a magic button that would either clean your whole house and do your laundry OR fastforward through your day at work until it was time to go home, which would you pick?
