What the Wednesday?
Well, yesterday's list was a smashing success. Was this my fault or yours? Did anyone do anything? Are we losing steam? I know a few of you are dealing with practically insurmountable issues, but what's up with the rest of you?
If we need to scale back to some basics because all of our lives are on the brink, which is what it feels like, let me know, so I don't overwhelm you with tedium.
But if you've just gotten off your game, I'm totally going to kick your ass because I got up in the shivering cold to post this. :)
Let's try this:
-Organize one cupboard in your kitchen (I'm hoping this will lead to an epidemic that reaches all your cupboards, shhh!)
-Dump out your purse, throw away the gum wrappers, decide which of your twelve pens you really need, and put it all back together. If you want an A+ clean out your wallet too.
-Grab your Windex and spiff up all the mirrors in your house. Extra credit for any windows (kitchen windows and sliding glass doors are extremely gratifying, btw).
-De-clutter your counters, kitchen and bathroom(s). Remove garbage, have the kids take their things, put away errant scissors and what have you, then wipe them down.
-Pick up 20 things in five minutes. This should be so easy by now. (That is encouraging, not condescending.)
So, cough up some excuses for yesterday. I'd like to hear what you all were up to. Even Mesina was silent. Were you locked in a loving gaze at your new dryer? I'm in a slump too, so, no shame here. I just want to know what we're capable of as a group, apart from Gail and Jacob who are utterly ridiculous in their maintenance and often have to search for things to wipe down or pick up just to appease me.

Okay, toss me a line and pick up a broom. Oh, and can someone bring me a diet Dr. Pepper?
