15 minute sessions of cleaning ... anyone want to join me? - Page 2

post #21 of 401
I really need to get the back of our house clean since someones coming to hook up internet back here (we are switching providers). So 1st 2 sessions are:
1) wash dishes, put away, make lunch, clean up after lunch
2) put away clothes (I took them down yesterday to pull out what fits the girls and never put them back) and girls books. Move clothes from the closet with the desk in it to another closet.

Ok, done with those two. Took me longer than I thought it would though since I ended up being distracted and helping my two year old ride her tricycle, nursing the baby and talking to DH on the phone for almost half an hour. I really don't get as much done with a phone in one hand. One good thing did come from it though, I misplaced the Beco Butterfly carrier I bought for DD1. I honestly thought I had given it away with a bag of baby stuff I gave to a woman at church. When I was moving DH's uniforms I found it! It had been mixed in with his uniforms the entire time. Now I have it to take with me on our upcoming trip!
Next three sessions are:
1) pick up the books in the TV room. Clean off the couch, put things away
2) finish cleaning off the computer desk, move the computer desk to its new home (we are rehoming it to the closet nearer to the cable outlet so the wire doesn't have to go that far).
3) Sweep/mop tv room. Switch laundry.

Great job Oki Mom!

I finished with the blasted book shelf and now have my back issues, and books in order. So thats 2 shelves that look pretty put together.
It took me awhile and I never got to the art box but I think thats what I am going to do right before going to bed.

Dishes and art box here I come!

I feel like I've been running errands ALL DAY!

For the first session I am going to make my bed (finally!) and start packing away prepregnancy clothes. This may take a couple/few sessions. I will also throw a load of laundry in the wash.

Im dragging...I started my monthly gift from mother nature and I just feel like taking a shower and going back to bed....

I just completed 2 15 minutes...picked up in the kitchen and wiped down table and counters

and I took out the bathroom trash and scrubbed my tub.

Thankfully I get to at least sit for 15 minutes and fold clothes. And I have to give my DD a bath...ugh is it bedtime yet?!

I got rather behind in on housework in general in just a few days of pregnancy exhaustion. So yesterday and today, I've been working on getting things back in order in 10, 15, or 20 minute spurts at a time, for various rooms. Maybe only 10 minutes for the guest room or the bathroom, 15 for the main living area, and 20 for the kitchen on account of dishes, etc. I've done a lot this morning already ready, and am about to head back to the kids' room for about 15 minutes, and then I think I'll need to devote 15 to laundry as well.

Okay, this time I am really doing it. LOL. I am spending 1 fifteen minute session packing away prepregnancy clothes. I will likely not get ALL of them packed away in that time period, but a start is a start. I'll check back with my progress. :-) (I guess this is an area where I really need accountability.)

does is count if i didn't actually finish the job? i did 15 minutes of dish washing, but the job's still not done (i had to stop, i ran out of drainer space ). i also started a load of laundry.

thanks for this thread -- 15 minutes i can handle.
