Laundry washed and put away. Sheets washed and beds made up.
Kitchen cabinets cleaned out.
Laundry room and laundry room closet cleaned.
Two chests in my bedroom were cleaned out.
I can finally see the seat of a chair in my bedroom. The first time in months.
My closet floor was cleaned out. Unfortunately my closet floor accumulates the majority of the "crap". It was a scary place. More clothes will be removed tomorrow. Typing for accountability.
All kitchen cabinets and pantry cleaned out and reorganized.
Toaster oven cleaned.
All kitchen counters and counter stuff cleaned.
My bathroom was given a major cleaning. Even my shower which I loathe doing.
Garage (another scary place) will hopefully be the recipient of some time well spent tomorrow.
J worked like a soldier today. I was so proud. Working really hard and she had a blast.
She swept the whole driveway, sidewalk and front porch.
Vacuumed the whole house (even the carpeted rooms!).
Dusted the whole house.
Washed the windows on the door into the garage and the front door.
She swept the deck, raked the backyard and had tons of fun jumping in her pile of leaves. Earlier in the day I asked her why she was working so hard and she said, "so we can have a clean house and I want to do something really nice for you." Awwwwwww..... Then she went on to list all of the things above that she was going to do. I actually teared up. Asked her why she thought I was crying and she said, "they're tears of joy, mom." I thought her list was a really nice sentiment but never thought in a million years that she would actually do it. She did. Without any direction from me.
Tonight we celebrated all our hard work by watching the S o u n d of M*sic and eating chocolate cake in front of the TV. Unheard of in our house.
Right before bed she asked what could we do tomorrow to accomplish some more. I'm thinking sleeping late would be a good start. :) Late is 8 AM at our house. The garage and the rest of my closet can wait till the afternoon (or next month.....). :)
