What I did today.....



I unexpectedly decided to go on a tear of organizing and straightening today.....
I am SO GLAD that I did!
My house is typically straight, but everybody needs some spring cleaning (albeit in the winter) occasionally.  I'm so trying to get it together before I go back to the crazy days of working.

  1. Colored my hair.
  2. Took Boy #2 to tennis.
  3. Unloaded dishwasher.
  4. Cleaned kitchen.
  5. Cleaned out bathroom drawers, and cabinet holding bathroom tv, washing down with soap and water.
  6. Cleaned out closet, made bag for donation and trash.  Reorganized clothing areas, purged shoes.
  7. Cleaned sills of windows in closet.
  8. Reorganized overflow pantry for stock up sales.
  9. Reorganized wrapping container, taking out any christmas things, those that were torn and or over used.
  10. Read manuals on new appliances..Keurig (Yay!)
  11. Cleaned out main pantry, removed all items, swept floor.

  18. Husband took apart faucets from garden tub (they just wouldn't stop leaking!) and he thinks its just a few parts that need to be replaced  YAY!
