I gave you guys the choice of a cop-out-ish weekend or getting down and dirty in preparation for the impending heat wave. Jennifer, won by a vote of one. Get ready to rumble with your scary abode.
This morning, I am manic and moving, having already:
-Put all my clothes away.
-Cleaning every crevice of the bathroom.
-Make chore lists.
-Wiped down lamps and fixtures, and gave reinforcement swipes to several sections of baseboard.
-Scrubbed down washer and dryer.
-Found a place for board games, which will require clearing, and thus enable me to slaughter, er, organize school shelf.
-Consolidated media notebooks.
-Vacuum my Jeep.
-Finish school shelf and/or call 911.
-Change all sheets/remake beds.
-Enforce a strictly minimalist philosophy in my kids' room. I've had it!
-Round up garage sale sh-- er, treasures.
-Organize iTunes (yes it counts).
-Throw sentiment to the wind in favour of closet space.
YOU READY FOR THIS?:
-LAUNDRY. Folded, and put away.
-Windows, at least the easy ones, inside, bonus for outside.
-Clear, wipe down dining room table, vacuum floor underneath, maybe add some flowers.
-Wipe down your kitchen, including floors, refrigerator, microwave, stove top, cupboard faces, hinges, etc. Get in the corners of the floors. Toss three things from refrigerator. Remove all entrails and/or fish heads from freezer. (Oh wait, that was me.)
-Kid toys in kids' room(s). Do a five minute sweep in there.
-Clean and vacuum your car.
-Dust your tv, dvd player, and computer.
-Remove needless shit off of your refrigerator.
-Clean master bedroom. Clothes, towels, dishes, etc.
-Walk into your entryway and do what needs to be done.
Get it? Got it? Good!
