... which is to say that today's "spring forward" accomplishment was cleaning the bathroom. Not just your normal scrub-the-toilet-and-wipe-the-sink kind of cleaning, but the kind where I got up on a stool to wipe down the light fixtures and got down on my hands and knees to clean the floor underneath the baseboard radiators, as well as that weird tiny bit between the bathtub and the cabinet, which it's only possible to reach by getting on hands and knees inside the bathtub.
Why this was the project I decided to tackle today, when it's way down on the priority list, I don't know, but my plan is not to question why, just to do whatever captures my interest in the moment. And today it was the bathroom. Plus I took advantage of the thaw to sweep up two trashcans full of leaves and pine needles revealed by the melting snow on the back patio. Plus I stripped the bed, washed the mattress pad and sheets, and am now just waiting for them to finish in the dryer so that I can remake the bed and crawl into it. (Hence the blogging -- the way to stay awake!)
I also scratched the surface of the grading I brought home over break; my goal is to get it all finished by Tuesday night so that I don't have it hanging over my head while I'm visiting my family. Oh, and I went to the gym. And I wrangled the trash and recycling for tomorrow morning's pick-up.
Wow, could this be a more boring blog post?
Oh, I know -- here's the other thing I did today: spent hours lying on the couch and reading the third in the Maisie Dobbs mystery series by Jaqueline Winspear, which I discovered last weekend and am really enjoying. So that's one of the beauties of spring break right there -- reading with no agenda or timeline.
Okay, I promise to blog again tomorrow with something actually worth saying, which means that I'll try do so before I'm nodding off over the computer.
