Cooking here (except turkeys) but entertaining was done elsewhere

so did work on decluttering living/familyroom some during ealy November
between mending sessions. The goals are (1) to reclaim a major room and (2) to get everything cleared out of the mending pile.
Making good headway
but wasn't done when got hijacked by Thanksgiving prep etal.

Currently
"Sandblasting" my kitchen post-holiday
(DH loves to get heavily involved in the holiday cooking so kitchen looked like a war zone!)
It has taken a couple days but almost done.

Off to touch up the bedroom & bath areas that I 'd thoroughly cleaned a week or so ago
before I get back to the kitchen food cabinets/pantry -straightening them up (as I'd cleaned and reorganized all but one over the summer) and then finally, if I have time, cleaning out that final food cupboard.

DH has third shift this week so after 10pm I'll be up washing floors - kitchen, bath, backhall - so they can be dry and back to normal by the time he gets home.
That should be the final step of my "sandblasting" of the kitchen
so I can finally get back to making progress on my regular project/decluttering list.

Well...I didn't keep up with the challenges, BUT the house got clean (enough) and my company came yesterday. It was a great Thanksgiving!

Sounds like a good place to start. My guests aren't coming until after Christmas (but they're staying a while...), but with the state of my house, the sooner I start, the better!

Pray to God, but row for shore.

Linda, go take a nap! It is amazing how much good that will do. I've had mine already today. I won't say I was raring to go on cleaning the living room when I got up, but...I got it done! Only took a couple of hours. Animal hair sure does accumulate fast! Oh wait...I haven't dusted in forever; just run the vacuum from time to time.

At any rate... emoticon

Go, Jayne, GO! Don't know if I will attack mine this afternoon/evening, or tomorrow after church. Just got back from a 9 mile training run...can barely move!

I need to do this too! My mom is coming again this year for Thanksgiving. Actually, she'll be here on the 13th so I'd better get busy!

Now THIS is one I need to do! I volunteered to hav Thanksgiving at my house this year. One main reason is it forces me to clean up emoticon . I took the 2.5 workdays prior to T-giving off just for the cleanup Hope that's enough time!

I'll report back when I do this - may be the weekend before I get to it.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

Okay, where do you usually entertain your guests? The living room and/or family room, right?

So time to make it company ready.

First, remove all clutter - toys, old magazines, dead plants, laundry (okay, that may just be my house emoticon ) and anything else that does not belong there or just plain looks bad.

Second: dust high, then low

Third: Mirror and glass time - clean and or dust

Fourth : polish, clean and/or febreeze everything as appropriate

Fifth: vacuum, sweep, mop and wax (as applies)

Sixth - Have a seat in your declutter and clean living room (But not before you brag a bit and earned a goodie - you deserve it!)
