Okay I was pretty productive this weekend though the house still looks like a dumpster in most places. Here’s the list and how I fared.
Yardwork: Put away winter stuff, bag poops, rake up yard, mow mow mow the lawn gently down the stream (~1 hour total)
NO yardwork was done because it rained Saturday morning, by the time I got back from walking the dog after acupuncture and it was sunny and warm I didn’t feel like it, they were talking about SNOW on Sunday and then it was windy as SHIT on Sunday. So, yard will wait. dangit.
Donation: Bag/box up stuff in basement, get more together from basement, box up household goods, check attic & dining room for more stuff (1 hour or so?)
I didn’t spend an hour but I put some stuff in one box and I have to get another box or 2 for the rest. And also see what else I can scrounge up to give away in a hurry. Not that I don’t have a ton still to give but I don’t want to make more of a mess right now looking thru stuff.
- Vacuum downstairs I vacuumed the dining room
- finish cleaning up bedroom floor NOPE
- fold & put away towels YUP
- make bed in guest BR and clean up/vacuum floor Made the bed
- clean up kitchen cleaned it up, dirtied it up
- dry mop then damp mop kitchen floor NOPE
- Clean bathroom: mainly the flooooooor YUP I cleaned it GUD, just have to put some stuff back in there.
Okay so I didn’t get all that much done off my list BUT I cleaned up my plant corner and the dog’s eating area. Like, I cleaned the corner of the room, wiped down window sills, baseboards, washed the wood floor where the rug isn’t in addition to taking all my plants off the stand, wiping that down, getting the dead stuff off plants (and the floor) and all that. (It was gross, dust, dog hair, dead plant stuff, etc.) Plus on both couches (LR & DR) I took the blankies off and the pillows and freshened everything up with fabric spray and reset everything so it doesn’t smell like tiny dog feets. (much)
So even though I didn’t declutter much, there are clean areas of the house. The kitchen really needs some work though. A little straightening and vacuuming in the rest of the house and it will be okay enough. The bathroom though is cleeeeean.
I also did a little bit of laundry. And I got my hair cut and went to acupuncture (which really helped this time around).
so there you have it. Weekend results. woo. hoo.
