Loaded dishwasher, ran it, emptied it
Signed up to receive several seed catalogs
Researched a few things that have been on my list, raw food-wise
Wrote up some math problems for son and found a few articles that interest him
Cleaned up the kitchen

Now what?
Thanks for bumping the thread. I'm near the end of my pregnancy and haven't been as attentive to keeping it going. Congrats on your productivity!

Today I would like to wash both comforters, plus one regular load of laundry, sweep and mop the floors, vacuum and wash the few dishes in the sink.

I would also like to make my bed, swish and swipe the bathroom, clean the counters and stove and do 5 minute room rescues. I'll be back to post each 15 minute session. I need a lot of motivation today and it's truly a day of baby steps!

This is a great idea! I always get burnt out and end up feeling like I get nothing accomplished. I think short periods of deep cleaning would really help me. Right now I am going to vacuum and clean the kitchen and bathroom counters.

MomtoS, I'll join you!

I'm going to fold and put away some blankets in the living room and start a load of laundry.

I also tossed the second load of laundry in the washer, made the bed, took out the trash and started supper.

Now I'm going to wash the dishes.

i am signing myself up for tomorrow. this evening i tackled my kitchen, which i have been avoiding all weekend, instead we made food and went on a winter picnic, the celebrate my daughters second birthday and went to the hotsprings down the street. needless to say it was kind of a mess, and now that i hand-washed what didnt fit into the dishwasher i feel much better. also working on a few loads of laundry.

tomorrows tasks are as follows,

*sort, fold and put away mountain of laundry in my room..


*room rescue on children's bedroom. includes hanging some pictures and maybe putting up a shelf or two.

* wash bed linens

* youngest dd's closet. before Christmas my dp decided to reorganize my games cupboard and making it something completely different which has resulted in everything being thrown into there and now i cannot access any of her clothing or diapers. im starting to get irritated about that..

im hoping to get this all done.
