10 or 15 Minute Sessions of Cleaning~New Thread - Page 19

post #361 of 1753

Thanks, *bejeweled*. I try to make exercising a priority, as it helps me to manage stress. ... I still haven't found my wallet. greensad.gif


I washed the containers, along with a few other dishes and folded 2 loads of laundry, transfered 1 load to the dryer and have a load of diapers soaking overnight.


Now I'm off to get ready for bed. sleepytime.gif

Hi *bejeweled*! Yes, the party is for tonight at 8:30, as DSD is flying out on Sunday morning to live with her mom. greensad.gif It's a surprise party. She actually has a field trip after school and doesn't get home until 8:30, so that's why it's so late--and we'll have time to prepare for it.


Congrats on all that you got done!


I also called DSD's school to arrange Withdrawal paperwork, etc.

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've posted on this forum. I may as well jump back in! Gonna set the timer for 15 min, get the kids down for nap, then do another 20. Family is visiting this weekend and my bday is coming up. I'd love to celebrate with a clean house. smile.gif


Eta: finally got the kids down and managed 36 min of cleaning before it was time to nak. The kids had found some styrofoam from a recent package and made 'snow' all over their room. There's still a bit of snow floating around the house, but their room is tidy and freshly vacuumed now. (They had helped me tidy up before nap.)

Kid room vacuumed.
Kid hall, bathroom, entry, and some of living room swept.
Random things picked up from floor
Guest bed stripped and ready to wash.

Lots more to do. I'm looking at you, kitchen...

Hi guys!


Okimom I am glad that stress is over anyway...hope you found the tickets.


Bejeweled, it's amazing how having visitors can make the place fall apart, it's lovely to have them, but one tends to forget about housework.


It is Sunday night here, and I have decided to write my to dos the night before, so I am more organised tomorrow for Monday.


To do:

make coffee

make breakfast

clean toilets

clean ensuite sink

plan meals for week


Change towels

vacuum furniture in living room

clean d/stairs kitchen sink


pick up some food at shops

Hello everyone! I have a LOT of work to do today. My poor little home is just trashed. redface.gif


Making a big list is too intimidating for me right now, so I'm going to be working in 15 minute increments and making multiple progress posts.


Here I go...

Hi *bejeweled*! The party was fun. DSD flew out Sunday morning and we've pretty much focused on her most of last week. So the home suffered during that time. Ah well. shrug.gif


I just nursed DS. Now for another round of picking up....




post #377 of 1753

*studied well thumb.gif
*started the wash.gif
*took DD to Bible study/dance

Right now I'm going to take a rest. Hope you're having a nice day too. I'll be checking in.

Hi everyone again! Our flight date has once again been pushed back to the 23rd.. At least I hadn't bought the plane tickets from Seattle or Orlando yet lol.gif.. Im optimistic that this is the last change since we actually have tickets in hand this time. Its a good thing in a way, Ive been totally procrastinating doing anything (Im feeling horribly down right now, I hope Im not going to end up with PPD like I did with both girls). I need to get my bottom in gear since I haven't done anything in a while (and the house shows it).


Need to do:

actually take a shower and get dressed. DS has been nursing every 30 minutes and its been hard to even sneak a shower in.

quick clean so I can tell what needs to get done.. Need to do: both bathrooms, all 3 bedrooms, kitchen, living/dining room

Put everything together to pack.. again.. Every time we get things together theres a change of plans

Buy plane tickets

Order Easter dresses for the girls and have them shipped to my in-laws

work sheets with the girls

possible go to the park if I get everything else done and the girls are behaving


Thats it for today. Im going to try to do a little bit and hopefully get it all done.. Maybe if I can get myself moving we can take some time at the park since its actually a nice day today.

Heather I hope you don't end up with PPD....I had it the worst after my second child, and still prone to hormonal depression. It sucks majorly being a woman at times! hug2.gif


Well somebody drove into the back of my car yesterday!!  eyesroll.gif  hammer.gif So today I took car to get a quote for fixing it.


Other than that I have not got much done yet...


made coffee

finished some artwork

made beds

towels in wash

changed handtowels


to do:


vacuum kitchen upstairs

vacuum 2nd floor

empty dishwasher

dry towels

clip DS's nails

take DS for haircut

clean ensuite

make salmon patties

*bejeweled*, happy day to you, as well.


clutterwarrior, sorry to hear about your car.


OkiMom, here's another hope that you don't get PPD. I can't imagine how hard it must be to move with a tiny babe and 2 small children. I hope everything goes smoothly for you. hug2.gif


I'll be back to post my goals for the day.
