haha, ok nix the vacuuming, not going to happen, not by four anyway, but i am doing awesome on waaaayyyyy too much clean laundry to fold/hang/put away, it is disgusting there was/is that much to do but alas, that is just the way it is, so getting that totally done will feel really good, plus i am pulling out ripped/stained/too big/toosmall clothes etc. so yay for decluttering!

I'm in (if I can get up off this chair )

My mom is coming into town this afternoon and I still have plenty to do before she gets here.

I'll be back, hopefully to say more than I just went to the bathroom or something

I didn't update yesterday, but I did do my 15 minute clean up. I set a timer for 15 minutes and even the kids jumped in to help clean as much as we could for 15 minutes straight. It motivated me to do my whole house today - http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1085176

phathui5, I'd invite you personally to join cause you are on a roll, but you are probably done your whole house by now!

I wish I had done my whole house by now. Somehow, no matter how much I clean, there's still more to do.

I did good, I...

-folded the clothes that were in the dryer (still need to actually carry them upstairs and put them away)
-transferred the clothes in the washer to the dryer
-started another load of my DD's clothes
-removed all the clean clothes from the guest room (just dumped them on my own bed, though )
-vacuumed up the cheerios on the pantry floor my 2 yo dumped out earlier
-cleared off the kitchen table
-carried in my new office chair from the garage

Thanks for the motivation!
