I really wanted to knit this weekend. Or can.
You know, do something.
But my apartment looks like something out of Hoarders. Note: we’re not hoarders.
My apartment always takes a hit this time of year because of the amount of time that I’m out of it. I don’t have a lot of time to actually get much done in the house. There are segments of the year where I’m going doing fun things but not March and April; those months I’m just burning the candle at both ends.
I’m also dealing with health problems. I don’t get sick very often but when I do it’s intense. This year it’s been to the magnitude of four straight months of one thing after another-it doesn’t inspire a lot of desire to clean.
So with Mid gone all weekend for a gaming convention I grit my teeth and started cleaning. I started with the kitchen closet, thinking that if I could clean it up I could store my canning supplies, ferments, and other small odd items and open space up in other areas for more storage.
Two hours and three bags of garbage later, I finally had a functional closet it again. What is this, the Tardis closet? How does this happen? I think my plastic shopping bags were breeding. I don’t even shop at a lot of places that give plastic bags.
I think maybe that’s the problem with my apartment as a whole right now. It’s spawning stuff faster than I can get rid of it.
