A New Goal & A Spring Cleaning Update

Friday, March 30th, 2012

I have a new goal: to get dress to my shoes immediately in the morning.

On weekdays, my little kiddo does not like it when I take showers…can’t stand those 8 minutes he’s got to play by himself.  So I end up waiting to shower during his nap.  This has, in the past, meant that I am in my pajamas until almost 2PM.  Now I don’t know about anyone else, but I am not inclined to be very active while in my pajamas.

So instead of staying in my pajamas for hours everyday.  I am going to get dressed, including my shoes in the morning.  I know this sounds kind of a-duh, but it wasn’t something I was doing everyday.  And I need to change that because I feel better and more “put together” dressed.

Spring cleaning is going well.  I’m not entirely sure I’m going to make Easter Sunday for completion, which was my goal.  Dave and I have been working on the attic, which originally wasn’t on my agenda for spring cleaning.  I’m glad we’ve been tending to it though.  We’ve actually gone through every box and gotten rid of so much stuff.  Problem is that we’ve been bringing boxes into our living room to go through them so we’ve got a couple of stray items in the living room delaying my work in that room.

Dining Room, Spring Cleaning

Not a horrible room to deal with, but it doubles as our “library” so there is a lot of dusting books.

  • Go through little green dresser
  • Go through desk
  • Sweep/mop floor
  • Dust all bookshelves
  • Set-up a little sewing area
  • Dust/vacuum radiators
  • Dust picture frames
  • Dust woodwork
  • Put away stray items I no longer want in this room
  • Set-up a small sewing area

Pantry, Spring Cleaning

O, this one is a monster.  I plan to completely empty the room and start from scratch.  Instead of trying to list off the stuff that must be done, it might be easier to make the list as I complete them in this room.  Pretty much all of our dishes and food stuffs are in here.

  • Empty spice cabinet
  • Throw away old spices
  • Rearrange spice cabinet

Beautiful Day

It is March 14th, and it is spectacular outside.  Thank goodness I am a stay-at-home mom because if I worked in a building on a day like today I would get nothing done.  I remember going to school and working on days like today.  I’d sit and stare out a window or totally daydream.  But instead, I am perfectly where I wish to be, at home with my son, and I’m taking care of business.  All while getting to enjoy the outside too!  Yeah!

Spring cleaning is coming along.  I still hope to have it done before Easter too!  Another Yeah!
