This weekend I addressed my life. I cleaned EVERYTHING–my car, my bathroom, my living room, my kitchen, I mopped all of my floors, I took a magic eraser sponge to all of the walls, I attacked the baseboards, AND I dusted. My muscles are in deep hate with me right now…I can’t get up off… Continue reading piles of life.
