10 or 15 Minute Sessions of Cleaning--Please join in! - Page 10

post #181 of 1254
I am finally home and able to join this thread! I am going to go nurse the baby and then spend 15 minutes tackling some problem areas.

I need this thread today. The baby is napping right now and my son is watching Jonah. Am In-Luvs with the instant-play on Netflix. He's in luvs with the new flat-screen HD tv. (so am I)

While that movie is on, I need to fold 3 loads of clothes and put a fourth into the washer, clean the stairwell, clean the bathrooms.

The Very Bad Corner is still a work in progress. It is the 'catch all' area in my house, which means I really need to find good places for all that stuff. But- I have a TINY house, and so, no real place though it is stuff we need.

*whine*

In the meantime- the list for 10/10

*dishes
*laundry
*diapers
*clean out the boys' dresser and take out 'too small' clothes (I think *this is most of the stuff in there. )
*bake a pumpkin so I have some to make pies and cookies
*wash floors (I may put this off a day- I'm feeling unambitious and it's supposed to rain this afternoon anyway- meaning MORE mud.)
*open all the doors and windows to freshen the house before the crummy weather sets in
*change furnace filter
*change oil in car
*stack firewood in rack on porch
*till garden plots done for season (this may also be added to 'this week' depending on whether both boys nap at once or not)

Before heading out to bible study in 20 minutes, I need to put the clothes away (and re-hang the ones my son pulled down ). The bathrooms were not done (will do tomorrow) and the stairwell needs vacuuming--after the toys are picked up and put away. And sheets put back onto the beds. But, I did clean the kitchen.

Just put on my third load of washing for today, and hung out the second one.

Have cleaned two toilets, about to clean the third (and last) one.

Then going to make DD's bed, then vacuum downstairs...oops better go check that DH put the cold stuff in the fridge and didn't leave it sitting on the bench.

Sigh...DH had left the chicken and beef sitting on the bench...

Made DD's bed, cleaned third toilet, vacuumed entrance, hallway and living room.

Might have to go back out to get another script because DS is refusing to take his antibiotics I just got for him today....

I just got home from picking up a new printer. I gave up on fixing the old one when neither DH or myself could figure out what was wrong. Usually one or the other can figure it out but nothing we are doign is making it turn on again I wasn't planning on buying a new printer this month.

Now I got to put away things, throw laundry in the wash and make dinner.

Just cleaned up the kitchen. Put the clean dishes away, washed the dirty dishes, wiped down the counter and swept the kitchen.

Next, 10 minutes working on my bedroom.

DH volunteered to work on the housecleaning today so Im freed up to sew. My main sewing priorities are:
- DD2's birthday dress and apron- Dress done!! Im about 3/4 of the way done with the apron.
- DD2's monkey hair clips
- DD2's monkey purse
- DD2, DD1 and baby's blankets (DD2's blanket is about 1/2 done)
If I get all that done () Im going to start working on the aprons I need to sew... or the journals... or the birthday banner. One of the three.

Some of my outside tasks are derailed until the weather improves.

I've

*cleaned the kitchen (this is a constant around here! Ugh!)
*tackled the front closet- I can actually fit coats and so on in there now
*picked up some groceries and put away the cold stuff. The rest is sitting on my counter giving me the stink-eye. I suppose that's the next task.
*made beds
*sorted laundry

Okay--I have a lot to do today and it has to get done because a friend is coming over to sit with DS while DH and I have our anniversary dinner.

1st session: make the bed, start a load of laundry and fold/put away the diapers!

I'm feeling pretty worn out today, so I think I'm going to just to about 10 minutes in each room. I'm also enlisting the 8 year old to help. :P

I was feeling kinda worn out this morning too. But I felt better after eating some protein.

I:
*made breakfast
*got DD off to school
*cleaned the kitchen
*took out the trash
*made the bed
*made chili, which turned out wonderfully
*am in the process of washing clothes
*studied

I plan to:
*study some more

I rescheduled DD's afternoon riding lesson for later in the week. I'm trying to take it easy and not wear myself out.
