    The Cleaning Challenge - part 2

    Advertisements
    http://militarysos.com/forum/showthread.php?t=240150

    Ok - so a long tiem ago I had my first cleaning challenge in efforts to get myself up to snuff around the house - it was very successfull. The house still is 90% maintained.

    But I've gotten a bit lazy and laundry's piled up and so on - and I have mending and a few other time-consuming things to do - so I'm starting another thread to encourage myself (and anyone else who's slacking and needs a boost) to GET TO IT!!

    right now I'm turning OFF the computer and I'm going to clean up the kid's bathroom - which should take just 10 little minutes - and then scrape and recaulk my bathtub.

    *ok - timestamp, now. *

    Well - I've been cleaning out the laundryroom closet because most of this stuff NEEDS to go back in there. I haven't cleaned the LC out since February - and so far I've found 28 hotwheels - still in the original packaging - that my husband has bought over the year and just stashed in the closet - random places.

    Thats awesome! I definitely need the encouragement! There is no reason that my house should not be spotless. Lately I have been doing small things that are making such a difference. I little pile here and there can REALLY clear the house out. My in laws are coming for Thanksgiving and i want the house to be perfect! Our laundry has gotten SO far behind its insane. Today alone I did 5 loads Yes I have that much clothing I have about 5 to go before its all done! Anyway I am right there with you on the cleaning challenge. GO US!

    *spanks everyone for being online*

    Well - I finished the laundryroom closet - it's sooooo clean! I even scrubbed the floor in there!

    Safe to say my house is no where NEAR as bad as it was back in February - that's for sure. Just really cluttered, now. And I know I won't have time, soon, to keep up after it so it needs a good pre-holiday cleaning.

    I'm getting reading to de junk the dressers and other shelves so I can start decorating.
