Now, if only I had a honey in my life to take care of it! But I don’t which leaves all of it up to me.
I think I officially have had it! I never really did a spring cleaning because I moved into my apartment around that time. Well, this week I am done with all the clutter and crap. I have been so busy with my new job and social activities that I have become lazy and one day I turned around and looked at my apartment with disgust. When did it get this bad?! Between the overflowing recycling bin and the dirty clothes thrown on the floor, it was the last straw!
Besides the dirty living quarters, then there is the list of things I have been procrastinating on. Things like hanging the rest of my pictures, unpacking the remaining boxes, getting my oil changed and the list goes on and on. It is so long that I can’t remember all that needs to be done until I see something that reminds me to add it to “The List”.
Before writing this post I managed to get my hair cut (it’s been 3 months), get my oil changed, replace my air filter, clean up all the recycling & drop it off in the bin down the street, washed the dishes, and emptied 3 boxes and organized them in plastic storage bins!!! I feel so accomplished yet when you take a look around, it still looks cluttered. Sigh… I am thinking that maybe for now I will make my apartment visually appealing and attack the rest of the boxes tomorrow once I buy some more plastic tubs.
One of the last things I need to organize is my summer schedule! I am SO excited about all the outdoor activities that are going to be happening here in Colorado! I just received my June issue of 5280 Magazine with the Ultimate Summer Guide and picked up the new Westword Summer Guide (for newcomers and natives).
There are so many things that I want to do, now being back home AND having a job that allows me to play on the weekends, I just don’t know how I am going to choose! Things from downtown art festivals to free outside movies, Rockies games, charitable food & wine festivals, City Jazz in the Park and horseback riding in the mountains plus sleepovers/pool parties with my niece and nephew. Almost too many choices… so tonight I think after getting my apartment in tip-top shape, I shall sit down, highlight all the events that I want to go to and start plugging them into my Blackberry calendar. Then making a list of the Colorado specific adventures that I want to enjoy just this summer and filling those into the holes. Who would have known that having fun would require so much preparation and work? And I better get it done because the events start this weekend! Capital People’s Fair, Churchill Cup (Rugby), Denver Chalk Art Festival, Film on the Rocks, Telluride Balloon Festival…. Like a kid in a candy store, where do I even begin?!
