I'm thinking about tonight. I will see how I feel after dinner. Not feeling so hot right now.

First 15 done. Doesn't look like I've made a dent.

Gem- that's how I felt when I started yesterday, but it DID make a huge difference by the time I was done.

Pammy- AGAIN? You are brave. I'm supposed to be leaving probably in an hour to spend time with my sister. I'm tempted to post a small goal of 30 minutes. . .but I don't want to burn myself out on cleaning. I did my 20 minute clean up this morning and have tried to pick up after myself throughout the day.

Okay 30 minutes, I'm talking myself into it. And my reward when I get 30 minutes done. . . chips and salsa although I'd rather have a Snickers bar- too bad I don't have any in the house!

Just completed 45 more minutes:
Cleaned up the kitchen, wahed dishes, etc.
Tidied up the family room
Spent 30 minutes tackling the organization of my boys' art supplies (been putting this off forever)

Now, I'm going to sit and watch a DVD - BUT, I'm going to go through piles of mail at the same time.

I did 2.5 hours earlier today and when I walked back in after getting ds from a friend's house, it looked SO great and I was so happy!
