So much to do
Saturday afternoon. You know, it's not just my weight that needs attention and energy, my poor condo does, too. As I was sitting and listening to presentations on the different committees within Junior League this morning, I kept hearing that some committees rotate their meetings through their members' houses and I started getting really worried. Sure, I could spend an entire weekend (or two) scrubbing and it would be OK for friends and family, but, in order to have strangers over, it's going to require many visits to Home Depot, Goodwill, and some professional help. It's a terrible feeling, knowing that I can't have any of my new and potential friends over because of my house, but it will cost money in addition to being time consuming, neither of which are in my budget at this moment. Threadbare carpet, peeling and stained wallpaper, broken cabinet doors, cracked tile, a leaking faucet, and doors and door frames that need to be sanded and repainted - what a long, unwieldly list. (There's also the new curtain rods to be installed and curtains to be hung, but that's more optional/would-be-nice than required.) More stress and worry, just what I needed.
