What a Feeling!

Remember that movie, Flashdance? And the song about what a feeling? I don't remember the title, but that line has been running through my head since about 1 o'clock this afternoon.


Because it was at 1 o'clock that I finished washing the ceiling, walls, baseboards and floor of the last room that needed it in our house!

I stood there and said, I did it, I did it, I DID it! Yay!

For the record I washed the ceiling, walls, baseboards and floors in

the kitchen
the living room
the entry way
the hallway
three bedrooms
two bathrooms
the great room
the pantry
the laundry closet
the front porch.

Our house has just over 1700 square feet of living space. And to reach all the corners and such I had to move furniture, too.

What a feeling.

And no, I'm not coming over to your house to do the same thing.

Actually, I think I might have aggravated a nerve in my right wrist as it's feeling a little tender. So, I'm glad it's done for more reasons than the feeling of accomplishment this brings.

I'm not done yet, though. I still have to clean out those spaces that are out of public view.

All in good time.
I want to savor this feeling first.

Thanks for indulging me as I toot my little horn about this accomplishment.

What a feeling!

Kudos to you! What an accomplishment! I would be embarassed, if you came to my house. That cleaning is way overdue here.

Congrats on getting that done!

Sarah said...

Awww pity you are not coming over LOL...Good for you though! I bet you feel a huge sense of accomplishment. Ever since you started this I have been viewing my walls and cabinets with a critical eye!

What an awesome accomplishment! Good for you for patting yourself on the back. Now, take care of that wrist. And, have a great day! You deserve it, friend.

Go Jeanne! Go Jeannne! That is awesome! Now I know you said you weren't coming over to help... BUT... will u come over to keep me company while I wash down the walls in MY house? LOL! I was just noticing the walls around the stove... you can't see grime, but when I started washing them, ugh...I can tell it's there. *sigh*

I'm super proud of you for getting this all done! I remember when you started and said you just wanted to get it done for YOU!

WOW - bravo! That kind of cleaning is way overdue in my 2400 sq. ft house - yuck - but you've inspired me, now I just need to find the *kid free* time to get it done - yeah, right!

stampmonkey said...

YAY, Jeanne!!! You're a super woman for sure! I wish I had as much energy for cleaning as you do. You really put me to shame....

Okay, I really need to get dinner started. Be back soon. ;)

stampmonkey said...

Oops. I forgot to ask about your wrist. Is it feeling better now? Likely so since you've been crocheting up a storm. Hope so anyway.

Okay...dinner. Really. lol
