    I bow to you my Queen. . . .you are amazing! I wish I had the stamina to do all of that. I just moved into a new place and I'm exhausted.

    We did spring cleaning last week while the children were on Spring Break. Three sets of hand make short work of it. The only rules were no whining/complaining and if mom tells you what to do you do it.

    It was so nice when I went to do my regular cleaning this week as I was able to do it quickly.

    There is nothing like a freshly spring cleaned house. It feels so wonderful and makes me smile.

    Enjoy your spring cleaning

    Whew! I'm tired just reading these lists. I think I'll pretend I'm a tortoise this year, slow and steady win the race.

    Aren't they awesome??? I'm so tired, I am going to need a nice long rest. . then maybe later I'll start to think about spring cleaning. . . .maybe in the fall. Right now it's all I can do to keep up with the regular cleaning.

    I've been slowly spring cleaning. I have one kitchen drawer left and need to take apart and clean inside the fridge. I do this often so it's not too bad. The inside of the stove is another story.
    The sliding glass door and the hardwood stairs get done this week. Closets and rooms have mostly been done.The ceiling fans is a must!

    Rhiamon, that's one heck of a list!

    Our first step will be reorganizing the now rehabbed laundry room. Then the project that needs to happen is the old dining table needs to be cleared off/sold(?) and the rug unfolded. When I bought the newest rug, it got put in place in the dining area folded in 1/2, it was the only way I could get it in the room. After that, we can move the new kitchen counter in place and use it by God!

    My ultimate plan is to have 1 less storage unit by the end of July at latest. If I can do that, I'll be real happy. My house may still be a mess, but it will be a less expensive mess with a lot less stuff!

    The windows should be washed and the walls vacuumed too... that needs to happen when I can open the windows as it helps keep the dust OUT of the house. That project will continue all spring/summer as every exterior wall here has multiple 1/8" ledges that need to be vac'ed!

    I clean the bottles, etc. in my pantry and fridge as I use them. Sometime I'll look to see what's dirty, it's what we aren't using. Either I'll clean it and use it or purge it from the collection. I tend to do that year 'round though, it's not necessarily part of "spring cleaning".
