I'm attempting to put away some laundry do some organizing in the bedroom.
post #162 of 1254
Spent much of the morning tidying garbage outside that crazed vicious dog got into. Oh well- at least it's picked up again.

Now, starting the day with two hours of sleep. :P

Already Done for the day:
Dishes washing (I was lazy and didn't do them before bed like usual)
Beds made

To Do list for the day:

Laundry- at least 2 loads
Dusting
Bathroom cleaning
Dinner prep
deep cleaning/decluttering kitchen/my desk area (this is very very bad indeed.)

Okay, I'm setting a timer for 15 minutes. I'm starting with the neglected dishes (we hand-wash, and not by choice--I find the power bill goes down when we have a dishwasher), and if that's done in 15 minutes, I'm going at the living room with a garbage bag.

I'll let you know how I do.

bathroom clean and laundry started- I'll tackle the 'to be folded' pile sooner or later- I hope.

Dusting down, setting the timer to tackle the Very Bad Corner in the kitchen. Send in a rescue team if I'm never heard from again.

I made superficial progress there. I need another couple rounds to get it done, but hey, progress is progress!

Hows the bad corners going?? I think Im going to have to go do one myself. Im missing the zipper foot to my sewing machine (it WAS in my sewing box but my girls got into things, I think it got thrown into one of the many cupboards in the girls playroom). Luckily if Im not heard from in a little bit my girls will come searching for me..

So far this morning I:
- made breakfest
-did breakfest dishes
- empty/reloaded dishwasher
-threw some fabric into the washer so I can iron/cut out the girls aprons
Now Im going to go:
- finish sweeping the dining room and wiping off the table.
- try to find the sewing foot to my machine... Hopefully I come back from that one. I don't know what is in those cupboards, I haven't been in them for probably a year. My DH just throws things up there to get them away from the kids when he doesn't want to put things away.

Done with the dining room sweeping and wiping down the tables. I spent 20 minutes looking through the cupboards in the girls playroom and couldn't find the sewing feet I'm looking for. I'm going to go look in the "miscellaneous" otherwise known as "who the heck knows whats in here" drawers in the kitchen to see if I can find them there. But before that I need to go finish picking up the girls playroom, there is a bunch of stuff on their floor.

Wow Im feeling crappy. Im going to hold off on the playroom until I can bend over without getting ill. I think Im going to go pop in a movie for the girls (bad I know ) and do some sewing. Maybe my stomach will calm down and I can get some more stuff done.

I'm sorry! I know how bad pregnancy nausea can be. I hear protein is supposed to help. I had a hard time keeping anything down, though. I hope it passes soon. (DH can't believe I want more children because I HATE being pregnant! Maybe my next pregnancy will go better.)

I was semi productive today. I organized my husband's clothes in his closet, in part because I was doing my own closet and then I hung one of his shirts, so I decided to organize his, too. But everything is in order. :-)I spent a great deal of time organizing the bedroom, which embarrassingly, felt out of control. DS is teething, so he has been extra clingy lately.

Now I'm treating myself to a bubble bath!!!!

Thanks Poetry, Its worse when I don't get enough sleep and DD1 has been having nightmares so I haven't been sleeping. I got maybe 2 hours last night. Im so glad its Friday over here and DH will be home for four days now.
I spent most of the afternoon making this. One thing marked off of my Christmas to do list!

Okimom, that is so cool! She will love opening that Christmas morning!

I've spent the entire morning (2 1/2 hours so far) decluttering my worst closet. I'm going through a really big box of very old papers. It feels so freeing to do so. Breakfast this morning was cold pizza. Lunch will probably be warm pizza. LOL!

I wish a productive day to all~~

Good luck with that closet. I haven't even peeked in my worst closet.

Thanks *bejeweled*! I see you've been productive, as well!

I spent the entire day decluttering my closet. I'm nowhere near done, but I have gotten to the worst of it. I figured I'd do the most intimidating stuff first. Unfortunately, it was stuff that took me down memory lane, so it took longer for that reason. But yay!!! Go me!!!!!
post #179 of 1254
Wow! I know how hard that is. It can be exhausting going down memory lane. Good for you!

Thanks Poetry. Im hoping they like their dress up trunk since they have been making up different outfits out of towels/blankets/sheets.. Hopefully it helps keep my cupboards clean.
Yesterday I was out running errands all day. Couldn't find 99% of what I was looking for though so I have to go out tomorrow too.
Today would have been the perfect day to clean and work on sewing since DH was home but instead I took a 4 1/2 hour nap... and Im still tired enough to go to bed right now. Oh well, hopefully I get more done tomororw. I did finish my baby to do list and broke it up by month and broke the holiday sewing up by week so hopefully that helps me get organized.
