Wednesday, August 11, 2021: I got it done! I cleaned my whole place in 3 days! It was a fucking disaster. It is very hot today and I almost didn’t start. But I had the energy and didn’t feel like being out in the sun. The bathroom started out easier than anything. It was already pretty clean. Vinegar and paper towels on the sink and toilet and walls. Then came the shower. It didn’t go as smoothly at first. There was a ton of soap scum and hard water stains. I thought I was at an impasse. I have a few other conventional cleaning products so I googled which would be the best. Guess what came up? That’s right! Vinegar! Every result on the first page. But they all said to mix it with dish detergent. No problemo! I poured some into my trusty spray bottle and douched the whole place. Set the timer for 15 minutes and ate a peach. Everything was dissolved! I did a quick scrub on all the tiles and the tub, doused it with water and it looks fantastic. I can’t believe it was better than I imagined. All I wanted was to look presentable. Cool!
I went to the store next door and got a chicken salad sandwich and potato salad. It was pretty good but now my stomach is twisted. I drank some baking soda water and got a few burps out. I’m feeling a little better. I wish everything had taken longer. It is 2:30pm and I don’t know what to do with myself. I was thinking of buying a mop but again, too hot!
I was bored so I took a career aptitude test online. I understood why they were asking seemingly unrelated personality questions but I did not understand how they came up with the results. Astronomer? Biological engineer? Playwright? Imagine. By the time I got out of school I would be dead.
I have an hour and a half left on my audio book. It is interesting but I think I will save it for tonight. My head is spinning and I’m quite agitated. Taking that test really changed my mood. It went on forever. I’m wound up.
My daughter dropped off the earbuds that are supposed to help with tinnitus but that has been getting better on it’s own somehow. Last week it was so bad I was thinking of buying into products I knew were scams. I was so desperate. Now it is just annoying. I did download a couple free apps. One is called Naturescapes, which is self explanatory and the other was MyNoise. It had nature sounds and white noise. It is interesting because it has sliders and if you want more bass, midrange or treble in your ocean waves, you got it. It is fun but it still sounds like nature sounds mixed with the ringing in my ears. Now it covers it up. I think I will give it a try. It was relaxing to be able to wander around and listen.
It is going to be huge heat tomorrow. I don’t want to just sit around here and sweat. I might go counter-intuitive and take a long bike ride but last time I tried that I made myself sick. I’ve been getting a lot of exercise the past few days and used a lot of unusual muscles. Plus walked a couple miles yesterday to buy some more fruit. Yum!
