hi mamas, this is sort of cheating as it is after the fact, but i've

1. done a load of laundry

2. cleaned up after a mouse terrorised the kitchen

3. bought mouse traps and set them

4. stacked the wood (with my sweetheart)

5. done a library and dance class run

6. took out the garbage

7. took 1/2 an hour to finish the dining table i'm refinishing


i hope to get a few things done in preparation for a trip, between tonight and later tomorrow.


(make dinner)


1. vacuum the place

2. any laundry needed & pack up clothes for our trip

3. leave the kitchen pristine (hopefully take a mouse on a trip deeper into the country)

4. pack toiletries, projects, girls things

5. pack up food

6. have a tidy all over - maybe 5 minutes in each room.

I love getting rid of things.  I love feeling ruthless. 

post #54 of 1753

I finished the car seat blanket already this morning and did the dishes. Rotated the laundry and took a bath. Now Im going to go clean the bedrooms, playroom and bathroom then sweep/mop the back of the house. After that is done Im going to go do the same for the front of the house. Then Ill go from there.

post #55 of 1753

I haven't been keeping up with the thread, but I've been totally rocking this house the last few days! I went through my clothes and all three boys' clothes and got rid of a ton of stuff. I moved the dressers around and rearranged upstairs a bit to make more efficient use of our space. It feels much more open and airy now!


Today I plan to:

-wash dishes

-wash and put away 2 loads of laundry

-move box of toys to the basement (I've needed to do this for a week and just haven't gotten around to it)

-replace lightbulb in hall

-get rid of 5 things from under sink (pot/pan/random kitcheny stuff storage - really cluttered)  I was on a roll and ended up decluttering that whole area, cleaning it, and organizing it. :)

-clean strawberry stain from area rug; vacuum

-sweep and mop

-organize bookshelf and gather books to return to library

-make beds

-clear landing

-declutter/organize one shelf in hall closet  ended up doing the whole darn thing after the kids went to bed

-empty bathroom wastebasket

-tighten table legs


I had my 1yo niece this morning so I'm getting a late start on all of this.

post #58 of 1753

Im tired again today so Im not going to even bother thinking Im going to get everything I "should" be getting done done.. Important things I need to do:

- quick clean apartment (nope, haven't done it yet redface.gif)

- sweep/mop apartment

-laundry.. laundry.. laundry

- actually PUT the bags in the car and threaten people if they take them out again Im going to pour ice water on them in the shower (Im a very violent person can you tell ROTFLMAO.gif.. hey he did it to me first :))

- Finish DD's hair tie organizer (I keep promising, Bad mommy moment shy.gif)

- play with the Ipad I have sitting here.. Ok, this isn't a to do but I figure Id put something down that might get done.

post #59 of 1753

oki I love my ipad ! 


so I picked up a little warmed up dinner and filled out some papers but moslt been sitting with my feet up bag.gif  I will get my whole upstairs sparkling before the sitter leaves really !


post #60 of 1753

Gracie- Im hoping to love it too! DH saved up the entire pregnancy because he wanted to get me something nice. I LOVE to read so he was going to get a Kindle but while doing research he figured an IPad would be a better investment for me. I haven't had a chance to really play with it since he just gave me it but it will give me something to do for the next week or so and DH is happy he won't be required to track down my favorite books while Im at the hospital (my books never stay on the bookcase because Im always rereading my favorites). Ive been playing with the map function today, that will be nice when we travel since we love taking day trips all over the place. Right now we are planning on driving from Florida to North Carolina when we move back to the states.


Ok, I just got out of a bath so Im going to go clean. I want to get the back of the house done before lunch.
