What cleaning job did you just finish?

I just cleaned our living room white wooden blinds. Man do they get dusty! Well, it's been over 6 months since they were last done because I broke my ankle

Hmmmm

Is it bad that I actually have to think about this? I dustbusted last night to clean up a spill in the kitchen. I also tidied up this morning because my boyfriend was coming over and he hasn't seen 'messy' me yet

My 12 y.o. daughter is in charge of the sweeping, bathroom cleaning, mopping for her allowance. My mom didn't raise a fool

I haven't cleaned in a few days, but can't wait to clean on Sunday when my nephews leave. I love having them here, but I also look forward to getting my house back.

So the secret to getting kids to clean is paying them? I might have to do that to get my kids to keep their bathroom clean

The amazing thing is I didn't have to do anything! He started on one thing and before I knew it my kitchen was clean. I was impressed!

I feel like I never actually FINISH anything.

I cleaned the kitchen this morning(as I do every morning) and there are dishes from dinner again.

I guess the last thing I actually ACCOMPLISHED was a water change on my fish tank.

Actually, I just finished washing all the windows on the outside of the house. And I cleaned off the front porch. Spring weather is supposed to arrive this weekend, and I want to enjoy it instead of having to clean !

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

I'm on vacation this week.

I've kept up with the standard stuff: laundry, dishes, tidying up.

But I spent all day yesterday making up my final exam. I teach high school geometry, and our final exams are due to the department chairs sometime soon. I'll make a few tweaks, then email the draft to the other 2 geometry teachers for their approval today.

That was the BIG job that had to get done this week. The housework was more or less under control because I hosted Easter dinner-- that was the deadline for getting the housework done.
