Keeping the kitchen cleaner these days. Starting to think I need to eliminate some stuff there, but we'll see about that. I do tend to cook new things and then find myself iso a particular dish or appliance.

Toni, they do have a place outside of the City Offices, to dispose of old meds, but, so far I have not taken any out there, I've been thinking of just dumping them in a small lunch bag and then take them out there, to dispose, I just haven't done it yet, maybe I'll do that today, I sure do not know what they do with them after hat, I do know that there are some in the police force around here that use drugs, so, anyways, I may get rid of them today and thanks emoticon Oh yes, I do believe some pharmacy's do take them.

Good question, Rosie. I didn't have any prescription stuff, just old first aid supplies. Tossed them in trash. Wondered whether that was a good idea with neosporin but wasn't sure. What do you think?

I think some pharmacies take back old meds.

Meanwhile I put stuff like small shampoos into a bag for donation.

And meanwhile, I now can take my hairdryer out of the drawer without it being tangled in stuff I don't use any more. Simple and nice.

Returned library books and books on CD.
My biggie for today was signing up for a new cable TV internet service. I've been having problems and frustrations with the old company for 3 years.
I had to call them every month about mistakes in my bill and poor customer service.
So this is a total load off my mind - Wahoo!!!

Bed is made and packing for my vacation is almost complete.

Happy St Pats' to all
I'm starting to gather stuff for my vacation departure on Sunday and having hassles with getting vouchers for airport shuttles etc.
This whole trip has been one big HUGE stress ball for me.

But, bed is made and shopping list is almost completed - then I'm off to do last minute shopping.

Sunday is my laundry day and I did it. I also cleaned out the plastic bins we use for trash and recyling in our kitchen. We keep plastic bags in them, but underneath tends to get gross over time.

my life is chaos - I'm dog sitting for my brother and sleeping at their house.
So most of my stuff at home is a mess and I keep running back and forth to take care of things at both houses.
Today I'm ushering at a play in our park and just found out that there is a HUGE science faire in the park too and that parking will be a MESS>
UGH

yesterday was a "me" day. went to quilting at the church, took the dog get groomed, went to the gym for their "hydromassage" (heavenly btw) Chiropractor appointment, Jenny Craig appointment, picked up dog from groomers.

Missed two days of my morning reading, so guess what, the bed didn't get made those two days. habits are so hard to change sometimes

I folded and put away the 4 loads of laundry that were already done, and did 3 more, emptied and reloaded the dishwasher, and cleaned up the kitchen after my husband made us dinner.

Still working on my daughter's room. Filled half a trash bag with broken toys and odds and ends, a recycle bag full of paper, and a start on a bag for Goodwill. Plus, I cleaned the bathroom.

Carrying around a trunk load of books in search of a book bin to drop them in. Found one, but it's full so I will have to wait. I guess everyone is cleaning up and passing things on.

Beginning to sort my winter clothes for cleaning and storage. I do it gradually at first, retiring what I know I won't wear again until next season.

I feel like I wasted the whole day. I drove all over town looking for a 5 x 7 ft area rug for my family room. No one sells anything that would work for me.
I'm going to look on Amazon and have fingers crossed.
The rug I have in there now is getting old and stained - I need a new one.
I had travertine tile put on the floor several years ago and because of the tall ceilings - the room has a bad echo - so I need a large area rug in there.
I know I'll find something and probably have to spend more money than I planned.

Actually getting a lot done today. I have a HUGE to-do list to accomplish in the next 2 weeks.
I met with my travel friends to put the final plans together for our trip to France - leave on the 22nd.
I made gingerbread cookie dough for birthday cookies for my niece - I need to have them all finished and frosted by Tues. o Wed. so her parents can deliver them next weekend .
They are all going to Catalina Island - huge family gathering that they do every year to run the 5k and 10d races next weekend. (I'm dog sitting while they are gone.)
My house is almost all organized for my out of town company - arrives Wednesday for 3 days.

I'm still feeling overwhelmed - but do have a plan in place.

starting the habit of picking up all the dog toys when I make the bed every morning. Might as well do it then, because I swear the dog brings every toy she owns on the bed every night. I used to just throw them on the floor to get them out of the way, but have put a basket next to the bed and am putting them in there now.

Yesterday I went through my daughter's closet and dresser to weed out things that don't fit anymore. I have 2 big bins to take to the used kids' clothing store and 3 big trashbags of hers and my boys' clothing already off to Goodwill. Now to take a box of books we sorted from my sons' bookcase for the library sale.

It does help to set aside a particular time for making the bed.

Today: took trash out, washed bathroom floor, dusted half bedroom, went through mail eliminating extraneous paper and filed.

what has helped me alot is that I am making myself read for 30 mins every morning with my first cup of coffee. The all the extra pillows for the bed are on the chair I read in. so make my bed, move the pillows and do my reading.

Totally surprised at how much stuff I put aside to donate. need to take a picture of it

If you don't make your bed when you get up, do it when you get dressed, that's what I do and once a habit, always a habit

Knuckles, I admire making your bed every day. I was raised to do that, but don't now and I miss it. Guess if I miss it, I can figure out what to do, right?

I am definitely looking around with an eye to cleaning things out and passing them on. I guess we can call that Spring "Eye," vs Spring Cleaning! But seriously an ice storm kept us indoors yesterday and it made me itchy to get rid of stuff.

One drawer at a time for me.

I am not quite ready for spring cleaning. I have set a goal to declutter for 10 minutes a day. Not yet consistent.

I bought Peter Walsh,s new book "LOSE THE CLUTTER LOSE THE WEIGHT - The Six-Week TOTAL-LIFE SLIM DOWN. It just came out and I look forward to reading it.

I ended up doing "winter cleaning" with all the work that ended up being done in my house. I can't believe all the stuff I have set aside to donate. And I'm usually pretty good about donating all year long

Hi all - here we are with a new month and fresh start. Anyone planning major "SPRING CLEANING" ???
I would love to - but I need to consider some home improvements before I dive into major cleaning.
