I wish I was done. Instead, I'm on the computer. I pulled two loaves of bread out of the refrigerator this morning, to put in my "must use up leavening" box... and when I got back home from my treatments, the bread was BACK in the 'frigerator. Oy.

If you're done with your cleaning, Julia, you are welcome to help me out.

My sister has sent progress pictures. She is awfully proud. First Passover in the new digs.

Hilarious!! Apparently the lady didn't know about KonMarie method - I was waiting for the part where she was trying to decide if something "sparked joy" but evidently not. And I noticed the photo of the rotary dial telephone had the word "Spark" on the center of dial (where the phone number exchange used to be printed...)... My place isn't too far on that now. My husband and son spent the day cleaning the cars...I'm sorting through foods. "Resting" now...so I guess I'm off to share that link with FlyLady team and the other Clutter team etc... ha!!

Yes, we'll celebrate Pesach with family in Lancaster, PA - then spend time in NJ, train to NYC, then eventually train to Boston area for a wedding in early May. Back to NJ, fly back to AZ, then eventually drive north to WA. That's the vague plan.

I'll jot down dates and be in touch with my NYC peeps.

I remember there used to be a small hotel in the 90s but on the East Side, near Mt. Sinai.

Glad you found a place to your liking. You can even walk over to Zabar's.

Nu, we liked it - but the price seems to have doubled. Yeah, we didn't like it that much.

We'll be on the upper west side. West 94th and Broadway. We'll be sending out more info shortly.

Mark, I'll be gone by the time you're there. Once again.

We're coming to NYC. Sat May 11. Southbound on "the Gauntlet." Loaded with all a college girl's worldly possessions. New England Thruway, Cross Bronx, George Washington... Thing One behind the wheel? Um, not so much...

We hope to get to NYC but it will be after Pesach begins.

Still looking for an affordable hotel though!

Nu, I've always believed if one keeps the clutter in piles, it looks much more organized. Or those folding drawer sort of boxes. It only looks like clutter when it's strewn around. If it's in piles, it looks like you have a plan.

That's my theory anyway.

I love Passover. My favorite of the holidays and its not close. Everything good happens at this time of year, not just the exodus.

At least your friend asked, Phebe.

The video is more clutter than anything else (minus the dirty dishes in the sink. At least it made it to the sink.).

OMG, that sounds like the husband of a good friend! Not the chametz part - the cleaning. When they were dating a while, after she had stayed overnight a couple of times, she asked if he'd mind if she cleaned the bathroom. He said okay. When she was finished, he came in and looked around and said he never knew that was the real color of the sink.

I would have died from the build up of mold in there!!!!!

Aand one year it got to be just too much, that I sealed shutt my desk drawers and labeled them "chometz".

My BIL's theory is the house is to be devoid of chometz, not shmutz.

If left to his own devices, with that premise, exactly when would he clean? emoticon

LOL! Keep the music on and sing along as you clean!

Actually, when I was about 12 or 13, I used to put on loud rock music and clean our bedroom each weekend. I loved polishing the wood furniture. My mother was happy I cleaned, as long as I kept the door shut!

To those of you in "crazy cleaning mode" (when else would you want to do a top-to-bottom cleaning except before Passover, perhaps?), I submit the following to get your spirits up:
