Thriving on a Thursday
In view of this nearly-fatal heat wave, and the fact that many of you have, to borrow a line from Jacob, become amphibians (maybe evolution is true? Or deevolution...), I just had to show off the astounding efforts of some of my Moxlings yesterday.
Not sure if you guys go back and read the individual comments over which I slave each night, but I really need to give these ladies their props. (Note: I receive a lot of emails from other Moxlings who have done great things but have tremendous difficulty posting comments here, which I hear a lot. I'm not sure why this is but I lack the computer savvy to fix it. If anyone could help me tweak a few things I'd be forever grateful, as you all have a large family of cleaning cousins you don't even know about.)
I'm tired I wanna go back to bed!
Ok so last night I didn't exactly get the kind of sleep that makes me feel worthy of living the day...however I am not quite death warmed up (call me in like 3 hours I'll probably be at that point then).
However! Since my Man is leaving me for 4 whole days alone in this house with kids and dogs, I have vowed to make him wish he was staying home by being the best woman evah! Ok truth is, I'll just miss him like crazy and want to make sure he's sorted to travel for tomorrow morning so I can spend time with him tonight. :)
☺ So! I have cleaned up most of the rooms, making sure the livingroom was defluffed, detoyed and decluttered...I will be vaccuming all of the downstairs and up in a moments time (oooh Mr Dyson!)
☺ I have also sorted my kitchen, clear of dishes and crumbs - Oi!
☺ Finishing up final laundry, as in folding (most of it is washed) and will iron Maurice's shirts tonight ready to be packed
☺ Made my bed...I know shocking isn't it?
scolded the dogs a million times for stealing My Little Ponies...don't ask
☺ Making Shepards pie for dinner in order to send the Dutch guy off to Holland remembering good English cooking. I know it's a weird plan but I told him to pick tonights dinner and thats what he asked for.
Tomorrow I will be checking in, Man free...Friday kid free..so I'll probably be buck naked by Friday afternoon screaming through the house about you ''Never taking my FREEEDOOOOOOOM'' - the high will last approximately 5 hours until I realise that I really am just naked and alone....with ice cream...did I say that? :P xxx

Mesina, I was all set to praise you for inventing "detoyed," but Shepard's pie is grotesque and you bring shame upon all Americans. However, being naked and the words "call me" got you back in my good graces. You go girl.
Well, for me it's time to:
~clean the upstairs toilet and shower again
~vacuum the upstairs floors
~laundry (as usual)
~dishes (of course)
~return cans and bottles to the store
~do some shopping. . .
~tidy and vacuum kids rooms
~work on bathroom renovations. . .
There may be more-if so, I'll update later!

Dawna-Plus you exercised? You bitch! <3
today i have: cleaned 2 toilets; spiffed up the bathroom; done 4 loads of laundry: taken out the trash. next is remaking the beds with the freshly laundered sheets and folding and putting away towels. heat isn't an issue here today but i still feel inspired to wipe out the fridge.

Gail-I am shocked there was that much to do in your house. Do you have a concussion? Either way, as long as your towels are straight, you are my idol.
I'm desperately in need of doing dishes and folding the laundry I washed and dried yesterday, but we're spending the day at my in-laws', because they have AC. Chores can wait until tomorrow's relative less heat.

Katie-AC trumps cleaning. Hope you had icicles on you! :)
apparently a fucking gnome or something(or was it chupacabra??) sabotaged my house in the middle of the night, so i get to re-do everything i did yesterday. plus i'm going to bleach my toilets because that sounds like too much fun.
and yeah, moxie. i am just going to tell kris he's not the father, or is that too mean?

It really is shitty of you to make laugh so hard I have tears streaming down my face. My fingers are already down to the bone. Was the gnome 5'-something and reeking of liquor and smoke? Maybe let a chupacabra in, I hear they feast on gnomes...
As for Moxie, do whatever it takes, I'll be your accomplice/alibi. In the words of Milli Vanilla, "Girl You Know it's True...ooh oooh ooh..."
You know my deal, back from weekend late Sun night, at hospital with ill grandfather since then, mix add sun and an inferno for an apt and I don't see much of anything being done any time soon with the exception of required laundry.

Jennifer-Thoughts and prayers are with your family. But I am goddamned proud of that A!
I think I *might* *finally* be too pregnant to clean properly. I am TRYING. Late at night, in my underwear, I am STRUGGLING to keep up. I have a plan to go on an hour cleaning frenzy with my daughter tonight if I'm alive enough once it cools off a bit.
My house is not as clean as it should be per my expectation level and my yard/ plants are not getting enough water.
I am just so pregnant and it is SO hot and it annoys me that I am not reaching personal goals.

Karinda-In your underwear huh? Did I ever tell you I hate being copied? Seriously, your house is awesome. Your bedspread had one wrinkle (gasp!) and there was a strand of cobweb I couldn't reach up by your Asian-looking vases. Perhaps you can put me to work when we get our girls together to
text, lol. You're awesome!
Let's hear it for everyone who didn't die.
TODAY I MUST TRIUMPH OVER THE THERMOSTAT AND:
-Load the dishwasher.
-Scrub the garbage can in the kitchen.
-Empty all smaller wastebaskets.
-Wipe down the kitchen since Quinn is gone.
-Get medieval in their bedroom because they're gone and how many scarves does Reilly need?
-Sweep laundry room.
-Restore all appliances to their original luster.
-Organize old curricula, dispose.
-Blog an amazing blog.
-Go nuts in the front bathroom window/sills/tracks. (Keep getting lazy waiting for the remodel.)
-Make pasta salad.
-Put on clothes before meeting a friend for chai. (Mustn't forget that!)
-Do dishes early before the sun tries to kill you.
-Fill every ice tray.
-Make iced tea.
-Put your goddamned hair up.
-Clean computer area. If as many of you are as addicted to facebook as I keep hearing, there ought to be a shitload of clean desks out there.
-Get a cool rag and do whatever you think is best with it.
It's going to cool down soon, and then watch out bitches!
