How I did it: To say that cleaning had been put on the back burner for a little while would be an understatement. I don't think I actually cleaned at all unless we were out of dishes or company was coming over. I broke my toe back in October so that lent to it, but after that it was sheer laziness!
I can honestly say that I ran out of things to clean today! I only managed to do about 15-20 minutes worth, but I’m still counting the day as a success! Tomorrow I will have completed this goal and it has worked like a charm! :) 2 years ago
Done. I kind of wish I had logged on here first though… Then I would have been able to work out my frustration on the dishes. Oh well, I’m sure they preferred the order of things… 2 years ago
Check! Kitchen floor is all shiny and the rugs are in the dryer as I type. :) 2 years ago
For some reason the dust bunnies love to congregate under the dinning room table… I dislike hardwood floors. Keeping them clean seems impossible!
I’ve almost caught up with the birthday party mess. Last thing to do is wash the kitchen floor. I’m drawing to the end of my month of cleaning and this place looks AWESOME! 2 years ago
Didn’t want to, but I did. Laundry? Check. Dishes? Check-ish. Cleaning up dinner making mess? Check. Back to reading my book now? Check. lol 2 years ago
Made a rather large dent in the mess left behind from the birthday party. Two friends were kind enough to clean up a bit before they left this morning as well! :) 2 years ago
I’m starting to run out of things to clean! Yay! There will probably be plenty to do tomorrow after batt3687’s birthday party though. The house always looks so pretty before guests arrived. :P 2 years ago
The basement is pretty much as spotless as it’s going to get. I also saved my doll Candy from the box she’s been tucked away in! Along with a few other stuffed animals. I can’t bring myself to part with them but I have no clue where to put them! They’re currently chilling in my part of the closet. :) 2 years ago
I didn’t feel like spending the evening the cold basement so I did dishes and cleaned up the mess we made putting together our new storage unit. Boyfriend tackled a little more of the desk.
I love that we’re having people over on Saturday (for boyfriend’s birthday!) and there will not have to be a mad scramble to clean tomorrow evening! :) 2 years ago
Check! The last few boxes should be done in the next two days! wOOt! I’ll be able to mark another goal complete and finally feel settled too! :D 2 years ago
Cleaned out the fridge of really old leftovers (gross!), did the dishes, and some basic straightening. Tomorrow I’m moving to the basement where the last of the unpacked boxes are. 2 years ago
Dishes, done. Bedroom closet reorganized? Check! Dent on the study? Failsauce. batt3687 really sucks at cleaning. :P 2 years ago
Mostly spent cleaning up the mess left behind by our cooking experiment. lol
Now time to enjoy the Academy Awards with my BFF. :) 2 years ago
This kind of feels like cheating, but it was after 1am that I was cleaning! lol Now I’ll be able to enjoy tomorrow (well the after work part) and not have to worry about cleaning in the morning. Yay! :)
(And now for some reason we’re rolling boyfriend’s coins to see how much he’s saved up for Disney. At 2:30 am on a night I have to work? Sounds like an awesome plan! lol) 2 years ago
Dang our kitchen floor gets dirty fast. Doesn’t help that it’s the first room you walk into and we keep tracking in salt. Kitchen is all sparkly again though. :)
Now we’re going to watch Paranormal Activity 2 since BF finally got home from his delivery and then I’m doing another half hour of cleaning after midnight since I won’t be home all day tomorrow. 2 years ago
The study is going slower now that it’s down to mostly paperwork. Boyfriend’s been working on it for over a half hour now and has hardly made a dent!
I went through the random “us” box. Hey there memory lane! Let’s just say that after six years I’ve acquired a bunch of stuff that I have no clue what to do with, but don’t want to get rid of either!
I also straightened the dining room again and swept it, organized the cupboard in the bathroom, and did some dishes. Yes, I went way over my half hour! lol
ETA: Oh! And last night was the first time since we moved in that boyfriend and I hung out in the study. It was weird, but a sign that the room is now usable! lol It seems we’ll be spending the evening in here again (him playing a computer game and me reading). 2 years ago
Check!! Two boxes unpacked as well! :) All that’s left to unpack in the study are my Disney Pins (which need something to go on to first), a repacked box of stuff for boyfriend to look at, and a box full of random odds and ends from our relationship. Most of it can probably go right into a memory box.
The last thing is for boyfriend to finish going through all the papers of his that have accumulated (which are A LOT), then we’ll be able to see the desk! :) 2 years ago
Well, I knew the study would be a monster to clean, but I can’t believe it’s taking this long! I’m slightly embarrassed.
Emptied the last suitcase of BF’s things. Most of them are now in bags to be donated. There’s still three boxes waiting to be unpacked and I need to find something to do with my Disney pins. I’d like to get a shadowbox for them, but they can be quite pricey. Maybe I’ll try making my own. 2 years ago
I wasn’t really feeling up to cleaning today. I’ve been in bed all day with the worst cramps (my body has not been taking kindly to the IUD recently), nausea, and what may be a slight fever. Apparently we never bought a thermometer for the house so I’m not 100% sure, but I do feel warm to the touch… :(
I dragged myself out of bed for a half hour, turned on some MJ, and managed to do a little bit of the study and the dishes. Now I’m back in bed cuddling a heat pad and ready to read my book for the rest of the night. 2 years ago
The guest are gone, which means tidying up the mess left behind. One of our friends was kind enough to do the majority of the dishes before I was even up this afternoon (we were up really late lol) so that was a nice surprise! Tomorrow will be back to the task of tackling the study. 2 years ago
Cleaning while company is over is difficult. The study is put on hold for the moment since there are currently people living in there. I did all the dishes that five people create… That took the full half hour. Jeez! 2 years ago
The study after day two of hard cleaning. Look there is a floor!! We have a friend from out of town staying for the weekend so it’s a very good thing I adopted this goal or else he would have been sleeping in picture #1.
I think the futon mattress not being there makes the room look even cleaner (we pulled it out so I could wash the cover). There was a lot of junk under it too! I can’t wait till we can see the desk too! :) 2 years ago
What you see above it the state of our study. It has been building up clutter since we moved in in October. A half hours worth of work hardly made a dent. For the first time I was actually counting down until I could get out of that room. I felt spastic while trying to figure out what to focus on. I actually did the dishes to de-stress from cleaning that room. lol
Oh well, one half hour a day at a time and it will look as nice as the rest of the house (minus the mud that BF tracked in *grumble *). 2 years ago
Proof that BF does actually help clean! Doesn’t he look cute in his rubber gloves? ;)
Cleaning hair up off tile sucks. A lot. What sucks even more is more hair failing out on what I just cleaned! My hair is obnoxiously long. I love it, but it’s a pain in the butt to clean up after!
The next room to tackle is the study. *shiver * Everything that we didn’t know what to do with since we moved in has been put in there. This will be a multi-day project. 2 years ago
This is very quickly becoming one of my favorite goals. Is that strange? lol
Today it took a little bit to get the motivation to clean. I helped with costumes for my former high school’s musical pretty much all day (3pm-10pm and I’m going back 8:30am till who knows when to help with their first performance), so when I got home my first instinct was just to veg-out. I’m glad I didn’t! The bedroom has been tackled. The bathroom is tomorrow’s task (Blargh). 2 years ago
I actually cleaned a lot longer than a half hour today. It probably ended up being more like an hour. Something just really aggravated me tonight and listening to some good music and taking my frustrations out on the dust bunnies taking over the living room helped quite a bit. BF did the dishes so I managed to get the last two boxes sitting in the living room unpacked (about time!). 2 years ago
Dining room is done and I stayed caught up with the dishes. The Michael Jackson poster when in the closest after yet another argument with BF about where to hang it. It’s put a damper on the evening. :(
I kind of cheated with the dining room and moved some of the things I didn’t have time to deal with today to a corner of the living room since that’s the next room to be tackled. 2 years ago
