It's the small things that make one happy

January 6th, 2015 at 04:42 pm

I continue to derive simple satisfaction from seeing the inside of some kitchen cabinets after I tidied them up.

All I had to do, really, was get rid of about 5 or so old coffee mugs I never use.

These are some/most of my glasses.

Ahem...but then we have this monstrosity...my refrigerator! Badly in need of an intervention but I always put off cleaning it because I would waste so much energy my keeping the door open and cleaning it. Frown

I was talking to my dad last weekend and he was complaining that his legs are always cold. He's a diabetic. I was going to buy him an electric blanket until I read all the warnings about diabetics using them and getting burned. They are not advised for diabetic use. So I settled on a pair of long johns on sale at Macy's and had them shipped directly to him. It's only Tuesday and he already got them. He called tonight to thank me and told me not to do that again. Smile And he said he already uses an electric blanket. I told him about the warnings.

Tomorrow I'm getting my annual physical. Not only is it free under Obamacare, but I will actually get paid $50 for getting it via the health and wellness incentive benefits offered by my employer and Cigna. Plus I will work at home tomorrow to make it easier to get the physical, so a win/win/win all the way around.

I walked 30 minutes on my lunch half hour for exercise today; it was cold but I'm glad I did it.

    If the refrigerator has removable shelves, you could pull them out one at a time to clean.

    Great job working out! I took a day off yesterday but today I did 10 minutes on the elliptical plus crunches, pushups and squats.

    Just think of the satisfaction you will get by cleaning that fridge if you like how the shelves turned out!

    Instead of cleaning it all at once, you could just do a shelf at a time. I usually give a shelf a quick wipe if there isn't much on it. It's so much easier than taking everything out.

    That satisfaction really is great Smile I'm with the others who said one shelf at a time may be the way to go!
