Coo Coo Cachoo....

You'll have to excuse me while I have a Mrs. Robinson moment. New Moon comes out on DVD today. "Coo Coo Cachoo Mrs. Robinson......"

Spring Clean-athon

Did you all finish Monday's tasks? Wonderful! How about yesterday's? What? What do you mean I didn't give any instructions yesterday? Oh yea, we lost power. Again. It wasn't quite as dramatic as last time, but it wasn't any less fun. No really. A nine hour outage when my head and chest feel like they could explode and I'm being followed around by two small children with heads full of snot and drippy noses is simply not my idea of a good time. So, what did I do Monday? Nothing. What am I going to do today? Well, having been sick and then having a power outage (which means no water because our well is run by, wait for it, ELECTRICITY) I haven't done dishes in over three days. Its gross in here. Seriously, its disgusting. So, I'm going to put my Spring Cleaning on hold and catch up with my daily chores. And no, I'm not really feeling any better, but its time to put my big girls panties on and suck it up buttercup. Have a good one!

Clean A Thon...

Well, the boys and I all woke up sick this morning. What a bummer! That seems to happen whenever I schedule a clean along. Maybe I'm mentally adverse to cleaning? Huh, something to ponder!

Instead of postponing today's Clean A Thon, though I'm going to post the things I was planning to do today so you can all still play along. If I feel better this afternoon, I may try to tackle some of these chores.

Junk Drawers: We all have them. Some are junkier than others. Some have more than one. I have three. Two in my kitchen (you know, those small tiny drawers that just take up space but have no real purprose.) They just seem to collect junk. I also have one in my bathroom. Well, that's more of a whole junk space! LOL!! So today's first assignment is to go through your junk drawers and clean out all of the junk and reorganize the essentials. That means tossing out that electric blue mascara circa 1987. What? I'm the only one? Rubbish!

Pantry: I know I'm not the only one that has obscure random ingredients hiding in my pantry, scratching my head trying to remember why I bought them in the first place. Right? RIGHT? Let's cull those ingredients and put them in a bag or box heading for our local food bank. For those of us that are still thriving in this downturned economy, let's do a little sharing while we're doing a little Spring Cleaning, shall we?

Oh, and while your pantry is empty, let's wipe down those shelves, too. There you have it. Easy Peasy, right? If I get this stuff done this afternoon I'll let ya know. Stay tuned tomorrow. We're diving into our world of plastic containers! You know, the ones who eat their own lids and multiply when we aren't looking? Yea, their days are numbered!

Spring Clean-aThon

Starting on Monday I will be cleaning my insides, so I figured it was as good a time as any to start on my Spring Cleaning as well! I'll be blogging all of chores and do hope you'll play along, too! I will link to everyone's blog on Monday so we can cheer one another along and know that we are not the only ones that have let our houses get this unsightly! I'll be doing a little tidying, a little surface cleaning and a little deep cleaning. It will not be comprhensive, but it will be a good start! And maybe I'll host another one down the road to keep our momentum going.
