Well, I completely forgot about dropping off the to-be-donated stuff, but everything else got done and I love my new camera! love.gif I also stopped at the Christmas Tree Store and picked up some new curtains, throw pillows, a new welcome mat, and a pretty floral wreath for the front door, all for $50. I'm off to do a quick last-minute cleanup before bed.

I have company coming tomorrow so I concentrated on some of those "extra" spots in the house to make things look very well cared for.

 

I cleaned out the fireplace.

Vacuumed the stairs.

Put out fresh flowers.

Swept the downstairs and washed a few windows that had many hand/paw prints on them.

Hi, philomom! Nothing like company for extra motivation!

 

Today I plan to:

-keep up with the dishes

-run the trash out

-make beds & tidy bedrooms

-wash & put away one load of laundry

-sweep or vacuum floors

-transfer photos from memory card to computer

-wipe down bathroom

-clean stairs

-go through ds1's memory box and try to pare it down a bit

-mend ds2's dinosaur costume (it's kind of his "lovey"; he wears it every single day)

 

Have a great day, ladies!

Hi, Graceie and Mamababamba. wave.gif

 

In addition to the stuff from my list, I deep-cleaned the bathroom sink (the handles were gross) and dusted off the top of the mirror and medicine cabinets (I dont think I've ever done that before redface.gif), and framed a bunch of pictures and hung them on my naked walls, which was way more work than it sounds like! I think I'm going to finish the laundry and then put some more coffee on and take it easy for the rest of the day.

Well, I lost steam in the late afternoon but I did wash, dry and put away about four loads of laundry and I cleaned out the fridge as a bonus as well. Clutter Warrior, next time try getting up and doing something each commercial...convince yourself you are making your house more safe. A rhythm of small bursts is really productive once I get started....the first step is always the hardest. Wishing you all a great day, and hopes I can keep getting to "the list".

I'm having one of those "phone days" Two phones, two insurance companies, ordering contacts for the teen, scheduling doctor's appointments... etc, etc....and so on. I'm sure you all know the drill.

 

But I can use a feather duster one handed! Go me!broc1.gif

Cleaned up the kitchen counter and table, got a load of laundry started, put away clean dishes and reloaded the dishwasher.

I'm not feeling good today so I'm done for today. :P

I also decluttered the tops of the kitchen cabinets and the top of the fridge, and cleaned the top of the fridge and the floor beneath the microwave cart. What a difference in the overall look of the kitchen!

So far today I've, folded 7 loads of laundry and washed one load of dishes, made my bed, wiped out the bathroom sink, fed the kids breakfast and lunch, had the older two do their math and talked to someone from our doula group on the phone.

 

My plan for the rest of the day is to:

 

Done- get the laundry put away

have the kids spend some time cleaning their rooms

Done- shovel the walk and driveway

make up a grocery list

Done- mail bills

go to the bank

go to the gym

read a chapter of Ina May's Guide to Childbirth for my book report (BirthWorks CBE)
