I'm tired. Enough so that the coffee maker is batting its eyelashes at me and I'm almost tempted. My antidote is to crank up the obnoxious music, survey the house, and get all North Korea on its ass.
So far, in slow motion, I have:
-Wiped down the kitchen.
-Made my protein shake (cheers Karinda)
-Swept the welcome mat.
-Made my bed.
-Rejoiced (read: yawned) that the laundry sorter is empty.
MY WEDNESDAY IN PICTURES:
Well nevermind, the card reader is being a bitch.
-Fold three baskets of laundry.
-Wash four dishes so as to revel in my newly bleached sinks.
-Finally, no I mean finally, tackle the hidden chaos lurking in the drawers and cupboards in my kitchen. Spices and birthday should not cohabitate.
-Magically will five extra white hangers to appear so as to hang my clothes.
-De-clutter computer area again.
-Persuade Todd to clean up his nests of paperwork on top of the microwave and in the guest bathroom, as well as the baby nest taking shape over by the shredder he thinks I won't notice. My leverage is that if he doesn't do it I will. Hello garbage can, open wide!
-Mourn the comforter I just bought and see if I can scheme a way to get the one I really want. And after that I will want another one...
-Finish a HORRENDOUS online form that needed to be done a month ago but gives me paralysis whenever I sit down.
-Make a very uncomfortable phone call at noon.
-Pull the couches and chairs out for when Quinn vacuums.
-Wipe down washer and dryer. They deserve it after how hard they've worked.
-Throw away ten things (or give away, while the kids aren't looking).
-Add to my bag of swap stuff, which I'm hoping will result in more hangers.
-That's about it.
YOUR WEDNESDAY: (In pictures if anyone would ever post them.)
-Wipe your kitchen down, put food away, strip those counters down as naked as they can get.
-Make the kitchen floor pretty, even if it means using a wet rag and your foot.
-Change sheets, and make all beds (have kids help if they can).
-Remove unnecessary crap off of your refrigerator.
-De-clutter the largest area of your house.
-Psych yourself into believing that your boss just called in and will be there in ten minutes and wipe/spiff/tidy everything you wouldn't want him/her to see.
-Get in your drawers (interpret however you will).
-Stop pretending that that sprawling mass of shit is just a pile of mail and be rid of it.
-You're done! Can't wait to hear your success stories, usually wholly unrelated to my list, but I don't care, I just like to hear what you're all up to.
