My desk is finally clean -- first time in MONTHS.
I got one box cleared out in the office, ironically containing a lot of DH's stuff under the top layer of my crap.
Qualia's dresser now has only clothes that still fit her.
But I didn't finish cleaning off the small mountain of clothes on top of her dresser, and I didn't even touch the pile of mail to be sorted. The bathroom closet remains a monster, and I only posted two things to freecycle.
So . . . I think I got about halfway through my list of goals. Maybe that was a little ambitious given that I'm pregnant, have a 13-month-old running around, and am getting over being so sick. But it sounded so appealing to get all that done!! I'm keeping my task list going and challenging myself to finish it in the next three days.
Thanks for the "push," mamas!
Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013. If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
Since I got all this stuff done (even though not everything on my list) I feel much more in control of my house. I shouldn't have let it all pile up like that, but I was so exhausted from entertaining at the holidays. I bought that "Motivated Moms" planner and a dayplanner to put it in, so hopefully that will help me get things more efficiently. I need to get my house in a 'routine' before the baby is born, otherwise I have no idea how I will cope.

Even if you only got one or two things done, still be happy with your accomplishments!
I really enjoyed doing this - like Sarah said, thanks for the 'push'! It's been good for me to set goals and be motivated
