Found my living room/kitchen floor, did some dishes, bundled up the trash, put the laundry away, put the dirty laundry in the basket and I'm stripping the bed tomorrow morning before work/school. Woo!

My last few days have been CRAZY. 

 

Friday, I finished the HUGE sewing project I had due, and took it to the client at 8 AM that morning. 

I went home and had a coffee date with an old friend, who brought over a bunch of food and spoiled my girls. 

I tried to take a nap between that coffee date and the playdate with a friend and her daughter; but I put my girls down for nap and then got 'waylaid' by my bf/partner.   :)

Then had a FANTASTIC playdate/mommy date, and I am hoping it turns into a regular event, because the little girl was JUST the kind of imaginative and playful that my more serious oldest DD needs. I finally cut that off and took them gleefully (on both sides!) to daddy's, then went thrift shopping. 

 

Yesterday I napped, took pictures with my roommate, and did some needed shopping and a sushi date with boyfriend. Then an early bedtime while he stayed up until 3:30 AM!!!! playing video games (which he NEVER does). 

 

I am just gushing over the past few days; my house is clean, my girls are at Daddy's, and today I will...

~take pictures in the rain with bf and roommate

~put new pictures in empty frames, I got my print order days ago and haven't had a moment to put them up

~clean the girls' room from the playdate, it was TRASHED

~watch a movie with bf/partner

~eventually get my girls back

~do three fifteen minute timers of chores/cleaning, rain has floors a bit sad. :)

~

Cleaned for 5 hours today and I still ain't done. Siiigh...

Swept & mopped
sprayed areas of the floor where food had fallen & got stuck on, scrubbed with bakind soda, mopped again to get all the baking soda up
Did dishes
Wiped down countertops
Put dishes away, washed another load
Cleared up stuff in the living room to give myself a break from the kitchen -- gathered up laundry, started a load, switched it over, vacuumed put all shoes into the shoe basket, all winter clothes into the basket (I keep a basket by the door with a jacket, sweater, and vest for Jude, a sling, reusable grocery bags, and a winter coat for me, so if we have to get ready in a hurry, most of what we need is already right there, ready to go)
Cleaned bathroom (toilet, sink, & mirror) then attempted to paint a storage bin that we have that's pretty ugly. It's off-white metal and I found it for $10. Not the prettiest thing but it is perfect for bathroom storage... or bulk food storage in the kitchen. Anywho, acryllic paint with a black sponge brush doesn't work very well on metal so it's all streaky. Oops!
Got dinner started
Cleaned up from dinner
Swept again
Did even more dishes
Gathered trash
Put dishes away and did even MORE (wtf?!)
Wiped the counters down again
Cleaned out sink, shined it up afterward with borax
Claned out refrigerator
Decluttered a couple cabinets -- turns out we had about twice as many lids as we have food containers, and several containers with no lids that fit. Tossed those into the to-donate pile and it made a lot of space in the cabinet, so now I don't have to rearrange everything every time I open that cabinet!
Organized some drawers. The boxes of freezer bags exploded so I got them all tamed, tossed out any junk, and made it easier to find stuff in there.

I'm actually feeling better today so I think I might actually get things done. I slept most of Friday and Saturday then yesterday we had church and a birthday party for my oldest (her birthday is not till next week but we wanted to have a party with family before we moved) so nothing got done.. We ended up canceling the pictures since I don't think I'm going to be up to it and I don't want our first nice family pictures looking like I should be in bed but I still want to get the dresses done so we aren't moving half done projects.

 

Hubby's to do list for today:

Finish packing

Finish cleaning up the living room and vacuum

keep kids entertained so I can work on sewing those dresses

 

My To do list:

Go through my yarn and decide whats being packed

go through my fabric and decide whats being packed

Finish the two cloth books for DS (1/2 done, just needs ironing and topstitching)

Finish my shrug (1/2 done, need to sew front to back and do the seams)

Sew my dress and alter pattern to make it nursing accessible

find fabric for the lining of the scripture tote Im making my oldest for her birthday

 

Possible (if I have enough time and don't take a nap redface.gif) to dos

Finish the girls picture dresses (need zippers and hemming)

Finish DD1's birthday dress (needs zipper and hem)

Work on DS's birthday shirt (cut out, needs to be sewn and buttons added.. I hate buttons)

Finish Christmas dresses redface.gif No Im not doing things in advance, these are almost a month LATE oops (need zippers or buttons)

Cast on Vest.. must find needles, the baby crawled away with them..

 

Maybe I should avoid patterns that need zippers or buttons.. They seem to take a while to get the final touches done lol.gif

Of course, I might just take a nap instead.. Decisions.. I'm a BAD influence,  bad bad me winky.gif

Rearranged my bedroom and vaccumed while doing so, so it's nice and clean. smile.gif
Put away a load of laundry
Washed 2 more loads (one drying right now, the other is washing) -- will put them both away later
Washed all dishes
Shined sink
Cleaned & sanitized counter tops
I went to the store this morning and bought a bunch of stuff for organizing my kitchen. I got a shelf for the freezer so now instead of just a pile of frozen stuff, it is all nicely organized. Heck, I even sprayed it down and scrubbed it clean before I put everything back in. I think I'll reward myself with the last of that chocolate ice cream that C brought home the other day... wink1.gif

I also got a cute little red soap dispenser to put my dish soap in, to make the area look prettier. An old friend of mine used to use an olive oil dispenser for her dish soap. I was going to get one of those, but this one's more toddler-proof.

BabyCakes - Work it, girl!

jimblejamble - soap dispenser is brilliant; I love that it's red!

OkiMom - best of luck tackling your list; I'm sure it will feel wonderful to move and get to start fresh!

 

 

Grr. This morning I made breakfast, cleaned up breakfast, and barely escaped with my sanity. My youngest was SUPER whiny and tired, but then she put herself to sleep!!! (I did manage to make my bed, actually!) So, this afternoon I have to...

 

~drop off paperwork

~ Schedule and organize sewing classes (I am teaching Wednesday night!)

~Fabric store for my next two projects

~Prep for product photoshoot tomorrow

~take kids to library or art studio

~figure out dinner

~do a 'me' project that makes me feel accomplished

 

Gonna go caffeinate now!!

Hi CW, that is quite the list! Enjoy the last few days of Summer break. I'm right there with you as far as watching what we eat. I stayed on Plan today and ate really well (for the most part). thumb.gif Let me know your progress once you start. smile.gif

cw- I thought "its not summer" until I remember your from Australia.. Have a good last week! Remember to have some fun among all the work..

 

Yesterday was a bust.. I spent most of the day being "turned into" random animals by my oldest and her "magic wand".. She has definitely retained more of the schoolish stuff I taught her than I thought. She came up with animals yesterday that had my husband giving me the "where did she learn that" look. Good thing in one way, it will quiet him about home school for a bit winky.gif Now that Im back to being human, or what passes for human in my house, and there are no children awake Im going to work on a few things I was suppose to do yesterday..

 

Today I want to:

- work on some crafting stuff that needs to get done (ideas: my dress, my shrug, animal dress x2, dino outfit, pirate outfit, cast on shawl (or scarf), finish strap of dollhouse purse, cast on sides of purse)

- clean up the kitchen and pack dishes

- clean up the living room and pack

- print out knitting patterns Ill be using for the rest of Jan and Feb so I can pack the printer

- order birthday presents for both DS and DD..

- reserve hotel room for Friday night

- Remember to take my meds, still have 5 days worth and Im horrible about remembering those things.

Jimblejamble, that is such a nice little touch with the dishwashing dispenser bottle. I wish I could trust myself with such pretty little things, though I've learnt I'm horrible at cleaning them and at refilling them...it is so hard to resist them, though, when I see others with them even though I know it really will just become clutter in my kitchen which I really try to keep to a minimum.

 

First 15 minute session of the day, in my study/bedroom:

- All the headphone sets, chargers etc. for different things bundled up and neatified (I need to sew a basket for them one day).

- My weekend bag emptied and put away.

- My dirty laundry put in the hamper. Clean laundry awaiting folding and putting away on my bed.

- Bed made.

- Floor decluttered of paper piles, various chargers etc. so that it is ready to vaccum.

- Empty, old bottles collected so they can be recycled.

- Library books all gathered, ready to be taken back to the library tomorrow.

- My yoga things put away.

- Books returned to the bookshelves.

- Clutter not belonging in the bookshelves removed, and put on bed awaiting to be put away.

 

And that's it for my first 15 minutes of today. I am aiming of at least doing one 15 minute decluttering session a day to keep on top of things. Wish me luck. :)

We didn't make it to the farm today greensad.gif because the kids slept in until almost 9am joy.gif.. We are going to try for tomorrow since horse back riding is only between 8-9am (not sure why, probably because it can get really HOT during midday even in the winter) and that is the main reason my oldest wants to go. Shes a bit horse crazy, I was too at that age.

 

So now Im going back over my to-do list and altering since our plans have changed.. Darn kids for sleeping in winky.gif

Thanks!: :D That is just because I finally have understood the most important principle of organising: everything has to have a designated space close to where it is being used. Once I got that one down...picking up becomes a breeze.
