Since my recent chest surgery, I’ve been unable to lift anything more than five pounds or do much physical activity. I’ve spent most of my time between the sofa and the computer, or puttering unsteadily into the kitchen to attend to my ridiculous schedule of vitamins and medicines.
But today, I couldn’t take it anymore. When I saw some posts on my favorite Unfuckyourhabitat, I was determined that my first real activity was going to be some cleaning.
So today, there was a 20/10 challenge. This really took me twenty minutes, because I’m slow. But damn it, I did it!
Forgive the lack of before pictures. My living room floor was gross with dust and cat hair probably tiny chocolate crumbs from the eleven million British sweets my dear gamer friends sent me recently. The coffee table by the sofa was covered in empty water containers, magazines, and other assorted junk.
First I picked up everything from the table and wiped it off so now it is a nice, pristine space.
Behold, the filth I first swept up from the floor! I discovered I can push the swiffer well enough with lower arm muscles without strain! Behold as well, then I used the wet swiffer pad to clean again! Now the floor isn’t sticky where I spilled tea everywhere!
Then I ate a whole bowl of raspberries and life was good. The End. Thank you internet, for getting me up and moving today.
