So I finished 2 of the three bathrooms and I did the DEEP cleaning! I cleaned out my linen closet and my clothing closet. I have dusted, put out the pictures and gathered a HUGE pile of papers/cards/etc to go through. I now have 2 bags for donation, 2 empty shelves in my linen closet and an empty drawer in my bathroom. I also have 8 pillow cases for my SIL pillow case dress project (only 4 if she doesn't want flannel). In all fairness, I also need to go through one more drawer in the bathroom. Everything I swept off of the counter and into the drawer yesterday ARE things I want to keep, most with proper places to go. However, at the time, sweeping them into drawer seemed like the easiest thing to do so I could get the counters cleaned.
However, remember at the beginning of the week when my first resolution for the week was to reconnect with family? I messed up today. Happy Birthday to my dear oldest nephew. I even have a gift. Did I send it? Did I call? UGH! Focus on the positive... we did remember to call and thank our Great Aunt for the homemade afghan. So I am now going to work on calling that sweet boy tomorrow and apologizing.
As for this week, I love my reorganized and cleaned bathroom. And my closet. And the linen closet. And the other bathroom. And my bedroom. And the dining room I have reconverted into a playroom for my sweet babies that will come to me some days when their momma works. And I am going to try to keep rolling on this project. Just like I am watching our pennies and eating breakfast. 3 weeks down, 49 to go. Have you joined me?
