    Zone 5: Mission #4 Thursday

    Dear Friends:

    Today is our last day in the Living Room! Let's have a detailed vacuuming session. This means to vacuum the room, making sure to get up against the baseboards and to get under the furniture. Please be careful that you don't hurt yourself trying to move furniture. If it is too difficult to get under the couch or chairs then just try to get as close to the base of the furniture as you can.

    ------------------------------------------
    I did the Living Room "good enough" earlier in the week as I knew I'd be out today. It looks like tomorrow I might actually start back on the dining room -- which has become a dumping ground.

    My routine has disappeared with the appearance of this bug in the house :-(

    I am sitting beside my sad light with a glass of water.

    I need to do my mission for yesterday which is dust the living room & hall, stairs/landing.
    Today is vacuum so I need to do landing & stairs (I swept the floors downstairs on Tuesday).

    The beds are made & there isn't a full wash to put on yet but I may strip DS' bed to make it up then strip ours.

    I need to empty & reload the dishwasher.

    I'm using food up for everyone else's dinner so I need to peel potatoes to make mash, possibly make sweet potato wedges too. The kids can have fish fingers & OH can use up the last ready meal in the freezer. Bit of a mish mash but with me not eating they'll need to use the healthy stuff up,lol.

    Doesn't actually seem too bad for today. I do have a pile of washing to put away. Hopefully get the kids amused with some toys or Disney junior so I can have a quick run around.

    I must motivate myself today!

    Go easy on yourself if you're not feeling well, better to take a day out and kick the bug into touch and tackle the jobs head on another day when you're back on top form.

    Bare minimum done here today.
    washed breakfast things
    made beds
    quick tidy round

    Spending the rest of the day with my beads

    You're doing awesome, MB. Especially for someone who had been unwell and had poorly LOs.

    Wow you are all so busy! I have so much to do here and no energy to do it! I can't do much until the new bedroom is done as most of the stuff cluttering up my lounge is bedroom stuff! However, I did get some more kitchen sorting done today so I'm very pleased about that

    Some laundry
    Cooked Brekkie and cleared up
    Unload, reload dishes
    Sorted stuff and went to scrapbook crop (10:00 to 3:00) -- with 20 minute drive both ways.
    Returned home
    Tided up, sorted DD's school stuff, cleaned lunch box and remade lunch
    Ran errands: post office, petrol, bank, shopping (got good deals for DD v-day and b-day)
    Home: sorted, tided, cooked dinner, cleared up, dishes going, laundry in dryer, washer loaded and will run tomorrow

    Still need to finish errands, ironing, wash dog, clean en suite, wash and clean car, quick grocery shop and the usual stuff tomorrow!

    Didn't do abs or hula hoop today -- but I still might. It's only 8:40.

    Your doing well, you should be pleased :-)

    *********
    I have the dishwasher ready to go, DS' bed remade, both kids in bed, I made more jewellery & even invited mil round! She couldn't come till tonight but she has ordered something for herself & likes what I've done for the nannies. I made dinner for C & the kids before that & have even cooked enough for his dinner tomorrow night plus left chicken out to go with it. Online food shop ordered to arrive tomorrow.
    house is sitting clean & tidy so if this bug gets worse I should be OK.
    Just remembered I have a lot of clean laundry on my bed to put away but it'll have to be done tomorrow when the kids get up.

    Well I have relaxed my expectations (as in I don't expect anything) & now that I'm doing the jewellery we have a new topic to talk about. She said tonight that I'll save her a fortune,lol. I don't mind when we get along, its good. I usually try for so long before I get fed up being the one to try all the time. I understand that she will always be family though so I just need to keep trying.

    Monthly Habit: February - Decluttering for 15 minutes a day
    February is here, and it's time for a new habit. This month, we are going to practice hard at decluttering for 15 minutes a day. With less clutter, it's much easier to keep our homes clean and organized -- and that means we have more time for fun! Here are tons of great essays, tips, and ideas to get you started.

    You Can Do Anything for 15 Minutes!" ~ FlyLady


    I'm working on this... I've sorted a paper pile in the kitchen today. Still lots more of those to do.
