The ONE thing I have cleaned today is. . . .

Okay we have every thing here but a success thread going.

If you cleaned one thing today lets hear about it.

Please do not misunderstand I do not mean a room or a house I really mean the one I have cleaned today. Naturally if you have cleaned more by all means do share.

So if you wiped off a counter, emptied one trash can, picked up one article of clothing it counts.

I guess I am proud of my self as I finally hung about six pictures today. My computer room looks more like a room instead of an over sized storage shed.

Yesterday I finally got my peg board off the floor by my computer desk and hung it on the wall about a meter an a half above where it was on the floor. . . I saw no sense in making it too complicated to find.

I disinfected my desk (picked of the papers wiped the desk and then put the papers back down) and phone at work.

Papers still everywhere but no germs!

Sorry you feel bad. Hope you get to feeling better. . . .take the rest of the day off.

What did I clean . . . . .


I managed to suck mud and little pieces of ?????? {Ohio} off my floors today, and I made some homeless spiders all by my self. {okay me and the vacuum} I put away half the vacuum cleaner. . . . .. those attachments I am taking a break before I empty the vaccuum which is still sitting by the front door.

didn't actually clean anything yet . . . but I went out and bought a big filing folder to put all those papers and letters and "interesting stuff" that I can't throw away just yet because I really really want to read them. SO I am psyched to have a place to put it all and everyone will stop nagging me about my little piles

I took a shower, shaved my legs, got dressed, put on makeup, ate breakfast and brushed my teeth in under an hour this morning....ok I know thats not actually cleaning, but that never happens! I now have a plan of attack for my house although it feels kind of overwhelming (lots to do and I'm here by my lonesome with DS) but I'm only going to do a few of the things that desperately need to get done (like the dishes) and then call it a day. No use overdoing it and ending up a jumbled ball of nerves over something that will still be there tomorrow

Does making a list really help? I like having lists, but I can't always follow them and then I end of frustrated. Any suggestions for some other way to do it?
