The first of many Wednesdays

Yesterday I had my first Wednesday off. I can’t believe I’ll be taking Wednesdays off every week! It seems to good to be true! It was such a nice feeling waking up, knowing I could do whatever I wanted. I had planned to go to the record store to check out some new music, listen to records I can’t afford to buy. Get a membership at our local library, and do a salsa class at the gym, and do some cleaning. I started off the morning with a bang by doing some reading over breakfast, then starting the housework. Housework ended up with me getting very into it and it turned out to be spring cleaning (although I know its fall here – my husband pointed that out to me). I decided I’m going to do the same thing next Wednesday. So my house will be in spit spot condition. I’m planning on buying a scrubbing brush and scrubbing those floors next week. Usually I use my foam mop, which I don’t believe cleans well enough. I also plan on going over all the skirting boards properly and cleaning my blinds (and getting a window cleaner in). Yesterday I did solid housework for 5 hours. What a workout! I was exhausted by the end of it. Today I feel such a sense of accomplishment. After next week I’ll keep Wednesday mornings to do my own thing and the afternoons can be set aside for cleaning.

Oh congrats to you! First off to have Wednesdays off - how I would LOVE to have a day off during the week to decompress from work. But fat chance for me on this job. Anyway - about you! I TOO love cleaning. It is so theraputic for me. I am happy you enjoyed yourself but i do hope you get out more to do some of those things you enjoy. Happy Wednesday! So happy for you!

I too like to get my cleaning done on my day off rather than on the weekend - then you have this clean and tidy house in which to enjoy your time off!!! :) I'm so glad you're back to part-time!! It's so much more fulfilling to life if you have an extra day off isn't it?

You're hired!

I love your reference to Mary Poppins. I hope you keep up with your Wednesday Wipe-downs. I bet it'll be really satisfying to keep your place squeaky clean.

At my job last summer I had Wednesdays off. I wouldn't let myself get out of bed until at least 10:30. It was wonderful...

Thank you for the comments! I'm surprised my blog still gets checked... I'm so sporadic in posting lately!

Daring to Dream: yeah... its a good setup. I hope your work situation sorts itself out sooner rather than later.

Miss R: I know! I felt such a lack of... stress this weekend! Nice!

Enc: in the most delightful way!

Frank: I should try to do that one of these weeks. I can barely sit still for 5 minutes. I woke up at 6am last week because I was so excited to have a day to myself. I only can sleep in on the mornings I need to be at work! Murphy's Law. Go figure!!
