I didn't get called in to work today YAY!!!

So, now I need to get my cleaning ON..  My kids get on the bus around 8:45 and I plan on coming inside and cranking up the music!!!

I'm going to set my timer because I know that gets my butt moving.  20 min on the timer when it beeps I will come to this post and report what I did and take a 5 min break.  Then it's back to 20..

This can be a super fun and productive game..  ANYONE want to play with me??  Or just post your to do list and come cross stuff off as you go..

    That's a great timer.. I don't have one of those anymore :( mine are in 3rd grade and kindergarten (full day)..  Well I hope you get everything done that you need to do.. I'm adjusting to working in the middle of the day which is odd for me and it's also not consistent because I'm a substitute some days I work and others I don't.  Some I work 4 hours and others only 2.  I would LOVE for a permenant position to open but one hasn't yet OH WELL..

    Anyway, hope you get it all done.. I'm getting there and feeling SO GOOD!!

    Quoting SourRoses:

    i do most of my cleaning in the later afternoon while my DS2 is taking a nap. that gives me only an hour 1/2 to clean the kitchen, sweep and mop, clean the bathroom, dust and i vac right after the kids go to bed for the night. i do this type of cleaning every Monday and Thursday. my timer is when DS wakes up

    Ok so I didn't set my timer but I did the following:

    Cleaned the entire bathroom, Took the screen of out the bathroom window and cleaned it, washed the window, swept out the cobwebs GROSS, cleaned the toilet/shower/and sink, swept and mopped the floor :)

    I swept the landing at the top of the stairs (we just have a small landing before  you enter any of the bedrooms or bathroom) and I swept down the stairs and the floor at the bottom.  I don't mop my stairs but I did mop the floor at the bottom (they are different types of floor, welcome to owning an old home)..

    UUMM I feel as though I'm forgetting something..  HHMM

    Did I mention I took apart my daughters kitchen set to clean it..  That was GROSS!!!

    ok I don't want to sit for to long but I am getting hungry as I didn't eat breakfst.. Maybe I'll have an early lunch.

    OH and I put my first load of laundry in the washer :)

    My to do list (that probably won't get done):
    Clean off the kitchen table (kids use it for storage, smh)
    Do dishes (we hand wash, and there's maybe 5 things to wash)
    Clean living room (pick up, dust, vaccum, straighten contents on coffee table)
    Clean kids' play room

    There's other things that need to be done but those can wait until tomorrow.

    No timer here, but we did change out our kitchen table which involved cleaning off the old one. Swept the dining area and kitchen floor and now dh is loading dishes. I'm going to put away some laundry.
