I really need to get moving and groving on unpacking and cleaning up this place. Usually Im a lot more on top of things. Oh well, it will eventually get done.. Tomorrow I want to get what rooms aren't covered in boxes picked up and the girls room cleaned up. DH is picking up new mattresses for them (we trashed all our old once since they came used with the beds and were old) after work tomorrow so I want to get things ready for them to sleep in their OWN ROOM!! tomorrow. Not that I don't love my kids but Im feeling a bit claustrophobic.

 

Tomorrow To dos:

- clean up the living room

- put the pillows back on the actual couch

- vacuum living room

- measure windows

- dishes, probably a couple of loads. The dishwasher is on the fritz as well so its hand washing irked.gif

-  Clear off sinks and wipe down

- marinate steaks for dinner

- wipe down kitchen table

sweep/mop kitchen

- pick up girls room, put whatever boxes left in playroom (aka the room with all the boxes redface.gif)

- vacuum girls room

- measure windows in girls room and master bedroom

-pick up and vacuum master bedroom

- wash sheets for the girls bed

- make my bed

- make girls beds when we get the mattresses.


If I wake up early I totally plan on vegging watching Expedition Impossible and eating a leisurely breakfast without kids crying about something.

Can I totally embarrass myself and post before/after pictures of the rooms? You guys would honestly be surprised how trashed my house gets when Im not 100%. I think a lot of people who don't know me think I'm some kind of Suzy Homemaker and I'm totally not.

Oki, I love before and after pictures! ... My place is trashed right now and we'll be moving April 1st. So far I've packed 4 boxes of poetry and that's it. But we've only recently decided to move for that date. I have to get more boxes from somewhere. DH is away on business until Friday. I'm not expecting to get a lot done while he's gone.

Hi Oki, I love before and after pics too. I totally understand about the place getting trashed quickly. Right now my DD's room is totally crazy again. And my room is full of dirty laundry again...And the fridge needs to be filled. And... And...

Poetry, did you all find a nice place? Are you moving into an apartment or a house? Do you like the neighborhood? Moving is so exciting and so crazy making.

But so far today I:
*bathed and got dressed
*made breakfast and teapot2.GIF
*rinsed the dishes and cleaned the counters
*took out the trash
*made the bed
*sorted the laundry and started load #2
*picked up milk, bread, etc.
*made lunch and did cleanup
*went to the bank, got gas, and went to the grocery store
*sent a work email out
*worked on my assignment some
*got DD ready to go to the rodeo carnival with her friend. It's so hard letting her go off by herself, but I trust her friend's Mom and I know they will have a great time. happytears.gif

ETA: They had a great time at the carnival. smile.gif

I would love to see them Oki!  I am sure it could not be as bad as some of the mess round here!  My name is clutterwarrior because I am constantly battling clutter, not because I have won the battle.

 

B if only my fridge "needed to be filled". Mine is always overflowing with stuff...in fact DH got annoyed with me this morning about the state of the fridge.  But seriously life is too short to live it with my head stuck in the fridge all day. eyesroll.gif

Hi gang -- jumping back in after a long hiatus.  Today is all about laundry and my dirty floors.  

 

  

 

strip ds's bed

start laundry

take out trash

tidy living room

tidy dining room

vacuum downstairs

 

Update:  Doing well so far.  The second load of laundry is washing.  Two more to go. 

 

dishes 

wipe down kitchen

mop dining room

mop kitchen

 

Second update:

 

third load washing

 

I skipped the mopping for now and went outside and weeded a row in the garden.  It is ready for planting now.  I have some seeds on hand, just need another 20 minute nap from the baby and I can get them in the ground.

haha.. You guys are awesome.. A lot of people figure since I was prior military my house would be inspection ready and super organized.. I failed organization in school. Seriously, I can't organize worth a darn so I'm constantly cleaning things up.

 

I got absolutely zero done yesterday.. My children went crazy when they woke up so I spent the day dealing with one crisis after another. BUT we did get them mattresses and they slept almost 12 hours straight last night.. They have NEVER slept that long in a stretch so I'm feeling like a bad mom, they must have been totally exhausted. It really explains the behavior problems we have been having, they were just way to tired for words. Poor kids!

 

So, I'm going to get to work today and see what I can get done. The girls are in really cooperative moods this morning so hopefully I get some stuff done smile.gif Oh and since they slept, I got to sleep and I'm actually feeling GOOD this morning. I'm wondering if some of the extreme morning sickness was just my body being super tired.

House is in decent shape after yesterday's clean-up.  I am off to a friend's house for some much needed conversation and coffee.  I have grocery shopping this afternoon, so that is pretty much the day.  If I get super motivated, I might finish up the mopping I skipped yesterday.  The kitchen and dining room floors really need a good scrubbing, but I simply have no time or energy for it right now.  A quick mop-up would be better than nothing.

Oh yes, mama.   Sleep, sleep as much as you can.  I just had my fourth and it was a very tired pregnancy for me.  Just take it slow and rest when you can.    And congratulations on all the wonderful changes in your life.  love.gif

DH took ds out to play at the beach and I am waging a fierce battle with myself trying to get off the couch, put the kindle down, and mop the nasty, nasty kitchen floor. DS spends a lot of time down there all of a sudden and I am suddenly very conscious of nastiness!

 

Today I:
Went to the store and got milk 

Fed the animals

Dosed the animals with anti-flea med

Sorted through ds's clothes and boxed up the stuff he's outgrown- oh my god those tiny little onesies!! happytears.gif  

Studied a bit

Cleaned up the backyard weeding remains from the other day

 

I plan to:

Put those boxed clothes in the storage shed

Wipe down kitchen counters

MOP THE FLOOR

Read another chapter of microbiology

Monday....Monday....

 

many loads of laundry

vacuum downstairs

mop kitchen

mop dining room

clean downstairs bathroom

visit new mom with breastfeeding issues

 

 

first load of wash is started...must motivate and get out the vacuum.  Maybe a cup of tea first.  winky.gif

 

 

 

Update:   Second load of washing started.  Folded a load from yesterday.  Picked up toys and ready to vacuum.  Fussy baby, so first we'll sit here and nurse and cuddle.  

 

 

 

Update:  Third load washing.  Floors vacuumed and mopped (hooray!!!!).  Visited a new mom and a wee baby.  Watered the new seedlings in the garden.  I should go clean the bathroom, but I will probably just go out in the garden with a nice cup of tea.  orngbiggrin.gif

The master bedroom is actually almost done. There are still a few boxes in it but I need to clean out the other rooms so I can actually put things away. I had my husband rearrange the furniture again shy.gif but it really does look and function better this way. Before it boxed off the room really bad and the chest of drawers blocked the closet. Now there is a huge open spot in the room that is perfect for yoga joy.gif(yay! I can work out again!!) and nothing is blocking the closet. Hubby also tacked up sheets in the windows to act as curtains until I get a chance to pull out my sewing machine and make curtains for us. I'm loving our new mattress as well. I never realized how bad our old one was (it came with the bedroom set and we didn't have the funds to replace it) until we got a new set.

 

Wednesday we are getting a new washer to replace the one the movers ruined. So I need to clean up the kitchen and living room so they can bring it in! Then I can start actually doing more than 1-2 loads of laundry. Maybe I will see the bottom of our laundry pile by the end of the week.

 

So today I hope to accomplish:

- wash dishes.. I'm missing having a working dishwasher right now. Its not that its hard its just another thing to do.

- wipe down sinks/stove

- sweep/mop kitchen

- wipe down table and booster seat.

- measure kitchen windows for curtains and see if I can find fabric in my stash to make curtains

- pick up the living room. its a disaster

- vacuum living room

- measure living room windows

- finish meal plan and shopping list for the rest of the month

 

If time:

- make curtains for living room so DH can hang then when he gets home (yay! no having to hang curtains this time!!)

- make curtains for kitchen if I have the right fabric for it

 

First up though I need to do something with the rats nest that my hair is.. And maybe actually get dressed in something other than bed clothing.
