Fall Cleaning

Luckily for me, spring comes twice a year here. It is still over 100* every day, but there are signs of it cooling off. My tomatoes have lots of new blooms, my potted flowers are starting to grow again... And with two springs, comes two spring cleanings! It is so hot during the summer here, I feel like doing NOTHING. And being so sick and tired while I was pregnant really made everything pile up.

I have been checking items off of the "to do list" left and right. I have been cleaning, sorting and pitching. (Please don't tell my kids, I have been very sneaky about it, and they haven't noticed one thing gone yet!)

I have been doing at least one big project a day. My closet, bathroom, GARAGE are all done! Last night, I did the unthinkable. I dusted and redecorated the plant shelf in the living room. This might make me never want to show my face again, but in the four years that we have lived here, I have never gotten up there to dust. Yikes.

Next up on the list are the office and the playroom. The playroom gets a trash bag of papers and other junk removed at least once a month. But still, it might be a project that takes several days.

I hate the cleaning and sorting, but I must say how much organized my brain feels after I have completed a room! And everyone is happier when the Mom's brain is organized!
