I'm inspired today - I just finished cleaning out my son's closet - something I've been meaning to do for a year.

Thanks *bejeweled* for starting this thread! Reading inspired me to do more.

-Scrubbed the bathroom and kitchen (including under the sink)

-Cleaned out the fridge and took out the garbage

-Folded and put away all 3 loads of laundry

-Straightened up DS's room, changed sheets and organized his laundry (quite a chore that has needed to be done)

-Swept all rooms and wiped down all surfaces

Phew! Now, getting ready to snuggle up ds, read a book and put him down. I think this Mama might relax with a cocktail after ds goes to sleep!

Thanks for the inspiration Ladies! I think I need to read something like this daily!

Today, I...

-Cleaned the kitchen and gave the benches a scrubbing of their lifetime.

Before the day is over, I am going to...

-Organize my 'to give' pile in the spare room and pack the items I just randomly placed on the floor last night
-Go through the bags that fell behind the fridge
-Go through our book cabinet and see if I can find just 2 books to give away
-Go through the kitchen cupboards and do the same (except I'm hoping to find more than just 2 items)
-Pack another load of washing

After 3 hrs of sleep last night, I set my bar pretty low for today. My goal was to get the outgrown clothes out of DS's closet. By the time I'd left for work, I'd.....

-bagged up the too-small clothes I kept tossing into his closet
-gone through the hanging clothes in his closet & everything in his dresser
-organized his "size-up" diapers
-gone through his "too big" clothes and found that he's now grown into most of them
-Found an ENTIRE TOTE of hand-me-downs that I'd forgottern about. Some fit now, many are too small


2 Laundry baskets, 1 tote & 1 trash bag...all full of stuff to donate. And this is after a huge donation trip on Monday. I can't wait to see how much I get when I go through DD's room!

Today, I did nothing I was so lazy, but it felt great. Maybe tomorrow... It's so interesting how energy comes in spurts.

packed up what we have in the hostel room here so it's ready to move in the am;

made arrangements to move the remainder our stuff out of storage tomorrow;

Today, I . . .

cleaned the kitchen thoroughly, including washing all the placements and towels (and dishes and counters and microwave and stove);

finished drying and put away one load of laundry, washed and dried (partially) a second load, washed a third load;

went through our tray of current finances and paperwork - paid bills, updated active accounts, researched funds for my IRA, all sorts of financial stuff;

weeded out a really thick folder in the filing cabinet, shredded unneeded active account paperwork, recycled closed account paperwork (no sensitive data); and

cleaned out the fridge.

Whew! No wonder I am tired....

started cloth diapers drying from yesterday. Stripped and made bed, but will have to wait for laundry to dress pillows. Threw out 1 grody pillow. Gathered the trash. Fed DS toast and jelly.

Made myself a cup of mother's milk tea. Finishing now, while I type. Gathered up some more loads of laundry, and put away clean laundry. Changed a diaper. Dressed DS. I am still in jammies, because I have absolutely NO PANTS clean! I'm still waiting on a belt, even my moderate waist pants are loose

I've got grocery shopping, laundry, and more laundry to do. Also sweeping / mopping, vac, etc. Sigh.

Today I

-Cleaned out the boys closet, finally.
-Found new home for file cabinet
-Sorted and re-stored both my toddlers clothes for next year, and the 6-9 month clothes for our new arrival.
-Pulled all "baby" toys out of circulation, so the toy box is functional.

I'd love to do more but my body aches. Like everyday, only 5 more weeks. So I made ds lunch and it's time out for mama.

Today I ran errands---went to the bank and the grocery store. I also cleaned out the fridge and attended DD's Valentine's party at school. I'm currently enjoying the Olympic opening ceremony.

It's a 3-day weekend!

Today, I...

made cards and gift card holders with my DD,

dropped off cookie money and picked up more cookies (girl scouts),

mailed the above cards at the post office in order to give DD a chance to sell some cookies (which she did),

altered some more cards and mailed them off along with some extra goodies,

finished two loads of laundry,

and I have an extra child here for the evening, night, and morning, which will involve fun "extras" later.

---------
P.S. This thread is fun and motivating. Thanks OP!

Today I:

Did two loads of laundry

Threw away 6 rolls of old Xmas wrapping paper. (No, I'm not wasteful, our house has been attacked by mold and I've had to throw so many things away.)

Took all my CDs out of their cases and threw the cases away. I have a book that I'm going to put all the CDs in, to save space. Currently, these were all in a CD tower. Now they'll fit in one tiny drawer. Yay!

Thanks for this thread! You've motivated me to go to the car and get the CD case and put them all in it. (And then take it back out to the car so it doesn't get moldy!)

You ladies have too much energy to be healthy. Boy oh boy i feel like a terrible housekeeper. I am just thankful if i can keep juices from being spilled and a dinner made before i leave for school.

You ladies are kick-butt!
