Update another week more clothes!!!!!!!

Sorry for not posting last week I came down with the flu /cold/allergies/sinus problems . I was out and did nothing at all other than sleep, read and watch tv for a few days.
I am feeling so much better now though so I continue on. Today I cleaned up the kitchen. I wiped down all the counters and cleaned them off . I also wiped down the stove. I swept the kitchen floor too. I then went in the livingroom and just picked up a few things that needed putting away. My wonderful daughter cleaned her stuff off the coffee table so it is back and all shiny !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will do my 15 mins or more of folding clothes that are already clean while watching the bachelorette. I will probably put them away tomorrow .

Tues and Wed together

So continued on yesterday with the goal of 15 minutes for clothing!!!!!
I went through my spare bedroom looking for a birthday gift for my daughter and ended up organizing all the clothing into neat piles. A big give away pile and then easier piles for me to go through !!!!
I also did a load of laundry that didnt get folded because it was still drying when I went to bed. I will fold it today !!!!!
I will fold this pile and put it away and then start going through some clothing in the spare bedroom. I think I will wait till next week to go through mount laundry pile and get it all folded and put away!!!!!!

Today I am celebrating my daughter's 12th birthday. Time flies so fast and I really truly have no idea where 12 years has gone by !!!!!!!!! I am so proud of her because each day she becomes so much more caring, loving , patient, informed, and responsible and giving! She is growing into a beautiful young woman !!!!!!!!!!

breakthrough !!!!???????????

At one point during the day hubbie noticed that my daughter had left some stuff
on the coffee table and he said after we come back you have to find a home for this stuff. It almost blew me away!!!!!!!!
Then he asks me if I am going to vacuum the downstairs ????? I asked him why cant he ??? He says you do a much better job! I am not sure if I believe him.
So hubbie has figured out how to boss others around but lets see if he learns how to pick up and keep things clean himself.
I didnt vacuum I am wiped from the party but tomorrow I will!!!!!!!!!!!

invade a radio station

Today we got a personal tour around one of our community radio stations 91.5 the beat and 107.5 dave fm. It was so much fun and they also went live and we all said Hi on air. Angel really enjoyed it !!!!!!!!!!! At the top is a pic of us at the studios.OKay it wont work for some reason so I will post some on Sunday or Monday.

Update on clothing my hubbie was sweet and folded laundry that I did two days ago. My daughter and I put it all away. It felt really good !!!!

I had decided thanks to a slob comes clean blog to make one goal at a time. The first one I did was to make sure my coffee table was cleaned off every night. Happy to report have kept that one up . Now the second is to keep the small love seat clean and not pile things on it !!!!!!!!

I cleaned up the house for my daughter's birthday/pool/ sleepover / party which is tomorrow. I have such that aaaaaaaaaa feeling looking at the house all clean. Nothing to really do tomorrow but wait for them to arrive.

Have a great weekend and if you are from the States have a Happy Fourth of July!!!!!!!

It has been way too long since I have blogged and I want to try and jump back in
and see how it goes.

I am an educational assistant and I am off for the summer so I set goals for myself to accomplish during this time. Last year was the big purge really every nook and cranny of my house was cleaned, decluttered with daily tasks . That felt really good to get rid of a lot of stuff and most areas are pretty neat still to this day.

The one area that didnt stay that way was my daughter's bedroom which is one of my goals to totally go through and help her purge a lot of stuff. She really just needs to get rid of a lot of stuff because she is growing up and most of the stuff is just shoved in the closet never to be looked at . We need to make her room a more grown up space for a tween. She will be turning 12 in July!!!!!!!!!

The big area I want to work on this year though is "clothing". I want to purge a lot and go through every area of the house that has any bit of clothing and either find it a home or give it away. I need to get my laundry under control too !!!!!!!!!!!
What are your goals for the summer ?????????????
