This Apartment Can’t Be Any Cleaner

Going to the gym gave me another boost of energy, so I did the job I was going to put off.  I went through all my records and successfully got rid of a ton of paper.  Yay!  I just love the feeling of paring down.  I feel lighter and freer already.  There’s a few more feet of unoccupied space in my apartment!  If I had to move tomorrow there’d be that many fewer boxes!  

So after three days straight of cleaning, today is officially a day off.  I will go to the gym and come back home and relish.  A little tv, magazines, and my book (still reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn).  Perhaps a home spa treatment.  This is exactly what it sounds like — I try to do the kinds of things you get done at a spa at home.

Here is Buddy who jumped into a small cabinet I was cleaning, the very second I removed a few things and created a spot.
