You Know You're Feeling Better When.......



Watch out, everyone.

I'm baaaaaccckkk!

It has crept up on me slowly, but this morning after bustling around the house a bit and tsk tsking over the enormous dust bunnies in the corners, I realized that I was truly feeling better.

Call me weird, which of course I am, but it appears to me that my attitude towards the cleanliness of my house is inversely proportional to my overall feeling of well-being. Or to put it another way, the worse I feel, the better the house looks. And vice versa.

For example: Post-pneumonia Julia looking in bathroom - AAAAAAACCCCKKK! Where's the toilet brush?? And the bleach?? And the Windex?? And my extra-thick rubber gloves??

Pneumonia Julia looking in bathroom - Oh, good. We have a toilet. *cough* *hack* *wheeze*.

Post-pneumonia Julia recoils in horror as she sees the dust layer on the entertainment center.

Pneumonia Julia - Aww. Pretty designs in the dust......maybe I should write our names in it....dum de dum....

Too bad recovery comes along with an armload of cleaning supplies.

Julia,
The first thing I do when I open up my computer is to check your blog. I didn't know what you were posting on today's blog, but I looked at the caption and started laughing, because I knew it was something funny. You're better than a first morning cup of coffee to rev up my day. Enjoy the cleaning.I know I feel okay when I have some energy and start thinking of ALL THE STUFF THAT NEEDS DOING!!!!!
