    ~cleaned all the dog toys we're keeping
    ~cleaned up cat puke in the living room
    ~put dirty dishes in the dishwasher
    ~pulled a tick off one of the dogs
    ~cleaned up this season's second corpse
    ~flung unwanted shoes

    All in all, not too bad.

    Yesterday when I got up and walked into my kitchen I wondered whose kitchen it ws because it was all clean and everything was put away! I liked that a lot, so I am on my way to keeping my house clean by making sure my kitchen is all clean when I go to bed at night. It really makes a difference.

    Tonight I will vacuum, dust and clean the bathroom.

    I started doing that with dishes a few months ago, tervsforme, and I know what you mean! Even though I am the one doing them at night, it feels so nice to come out in the morning and not have a pile of dirty dishes waiting for me!

    I'll sign up for this, but the fling things has to happen first, you can't see my house!

    What I'm going to try and do is concentrate on the "cleared" parts of the house, maintaining them and then let the clean "stain" expand as I uncover the rest of the place.

    So right now, cleared rooms include the bathroom, the kitchen, and the laundry room. All of these have a tendency to accumulate more clutter, so the challenge there is to keep it under control.

    Target 1: laundry room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom.
    Target 2: other kitchen space
    Target 3: office space 1
    Target 4: office space 2
    Target 5: bedroom
    Target 6: living room

    I just listed these in the order of the amount of stuff there is in them. Except for keeping the cleared/semi-cleared spaces clean, I have no real priority about what happens first or next!

    I cleaned my bathroom today, and I did two loads of laundry. Also, washed all the dishes and put them all away afterward.

    Ok, cleaned my kitchen three nights in a row, I'm kinda liking this whole clean kitchen thing in the morning!

    I got my desk cleared off last night and I did a load of laundry. Didn't get it put away yet, will work on that tonight.

    laundry in washer/dryer 3/2 folded or hung/put away3/2
    dishes in dishwasher/put away 3/3
    shake rugs bathroom/laundry 0/1
    vacuum diningroom 0
    clear table 2
    strip bed 1

    Last week when we stripped the bed we ran everything thru either the washer & dryer or just the dryer on air to remove the allergens, flea eggs, etc. Part of my ongoing efforts to clean this place is that I'm trying to always clean a little more than just maintence requires. Today when we were going to strip the bed, I got a dust mask and picked up all the books stacked next to the bed that make it hard to take off/put on the bottom sheet. DH nicely went through the stash of papers I found and many inserts are in the dump bin. He did that while I vac'd. And I vaccuumed not just next to the bed but to the doorway and the hallway too.

    I took the laundry rugs out and shook them yesterday. I should do the bathroom rugs today!

    Cleaned my kitchen counters today. Of course, the kitchen floor is another story for another day!
