Well, I didn't know you all were doing this but I spent a bunch of time this morning scrubbing my stovetop/oven this morning. You guys all got so much done. You are amazing.

Well, this is the thread I need to hang out in... I am so far behind on stuff around my house. It's too late today, because I am getting ready to go to the gym, but I am going to try to get some stuff done tomorrow.

I am so far behind, too. One thing at a time though, right? Let us know how we can cheer you on tomorrow.

I harvested green beans (which I had been avoiding) and did more weeding. I also tied up a grape vine that was needing support.

Still need to fold that laundry . . .

I also cleaned off the front porch.

I'm going to continue working in the kitchen today. Last night I couldn't stop myself and sorted and cleaned all of the drawers in the kitchen. I want to sort and clean the cabinets and the fridge today, as well as, do a little bit of caulking around the sink. I also desperately need to vacuum the house, but not sure I will get to that today. As I take breaks today, I think I will try to work on dd's curriculum for next year and get some stuff ordered.

Wow Charla! I'm glad you found energy and motivation to keep on working.

We had a family dinner last night to go to, but I did get the screens washed and floors done in the two rooms. I still need to get to the light fixture. I need to start making a list of repairs as I go through the rooms, too.

Yesterday I caught up with laundry (just needs to be put away) so today I will wash some bedding.

This morning I'll be continuing down the stairwell and through the laundry room.

I have dd's curriculum ordered and I have about half of the inside of the cabinets cleaned in the kitchen plus I did a little bit of caulking. Don't think caulking is my forte.

I'm so impressed that you would even attempt this!

I've wiped down the trim and walls in the stairwell, and started on the trim in the laundry room. I didn't realize how bad the walls were until I got close with the cloth. I changed my water twice. It made the work more satisfying. Progress will now be slower because the laundry room counter is a catch-all.

Tile staircase hand scrubbed. Two buckets of water for one set of stairs that get washed weekly.

I have one cabinet and the fridge/freezer left!



Wow, I bet you feel so accomplished, RR. Hope the laundry room goes smoothly.

I'm skipping the laundry room for a bit to dust and organize my son's bed (it's a Captains bed so it holds a lot of stuff!) while his bedding is being washed. Then I have a few appointments to go to this afternoon.

You're almost done the kitchen!

I hate washing bedding. Sounds like a smart plan to dust and organize while the bedding is in the wash.

All progress is awesome! Packing is a chore in itself.

I am done with the kitchen. It certainly isn't perfectly clean, but it is much cleaner than it was. I.am.done. My body is tired. No more projects for me today. But I'm here to cheer you all on!
