Cleaning party? please

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
:
for the life of me i can not remember the sn of the person that used to start these cleaning party posts but i seriously got so much done a couple of times she did, so anyone game?
you can start your list here or set a timer or however you best clean but maybe come back in a half hour and say what you have done and what your off to do next? or anything really

i am going to set the timer for 1/2 hour and get the kitchen finished up as much as possible and report back

Alright, I'm in

I just finished vacuuming my upstairs bedrooms (we have new guinea pigs and this is now an everyday occurance)
sweeping upstairs bedrooms
(I also had to organize the great toy clean up to make those possible)
sprayed down my bathroom surfaces (and am letting that vinegar do its thang right now)

I'm off, to scrub bathroom, switch out laundry, and put away towels, and will check back when I'm done with that hopefully. unless i forget, which is always likely. Good Luck!

OK my bathroom is clean, my towels are put away and now its time for me to make some dinner for the fam, with the attendant bedtime routine to follow. I do plan on getting the clothing laundry done tonight, and washing bedding tomorrow.

And coffee.... mmm. I wish, but I would be up all night. Plus I've already had my one coffee of the day, and til the babe is born I'm limitting myself to that. Too bad too, because now that the third trimester has set in I could use an evening cup of coffee - otherwise I tend to fall asleep at the same time as my 3 yo!

post #12 of 46
Finished everything on my list, plus cleaned out the litter box and sorted through all 2/3 of the toys that were boxed in the attic to see what needed to be given away. Whew!

Of course, it's another day with another list of chores (go to the grocery store for starters), but I definitely feel like I got quite a bit done!

My nose keeps running and my energy is sapped. I have no desire to sew. I'll putter around the house for a bit.

Well I didn't get the boxes unpacked before the company got here, but that's okay. I worked my behind off, esp. considering I'm pregnant.

How did everyone else do?

WOW! Looks like you guys got a lot done!

Ok i'm off again, just drank my coffee and am going to turn the tunes on and light some incense and get as much done as possible before dh comes home. That should give me two hours (god willing the children cooperate ). Anyone who wants to join in today feel free!

I'm going to start the timer off at 1/2 hour and get the living room picked up and dining room and finish up in the kitchen.

I'm in. I'm sick and bored at home, and DH is out of town until later tonight. DD is down for a nap. I'm going to set the timer and see what I can get done in the study.
post #19 of 46
I set the timer for 15 minutes and cleaned the entire kitchen, made myself a couple of big glasses of water with lemon (trying to force fluids here), and did a little desk tidying in the study.

Thanks for the motivation!
post #20 of 46
I'll join your party...delayed. LOL

So far one load of dishes done, waiting to be put away.
One load of clothes in the wash.
Sorted through huge pile of newspapers.
Took pictures of DD's artwork and uploaded.
