I just did about 20 minutes (I set the timer at 10 but kept going) and did most of my dishes (a few won't fit in the dish rack), tidied up my small pantry cupboard, transferred some bulk flour to halg-gallon glass jars, and reorganized my bulk foods shelves to fit the new flour jars. Yay! 

Now I'm gonna watch an episode of Dexter, then do another 10-20 minutes :)
