Tackle It Tuesday

Well first of all, despite the fact that I didn't sleep too well last night, I was able to sleep in until 8:00 AM! My natural alarm usually goes off around 6:30AM. The kids were up already and didn't even bother me... amazing.

My tackle for today is not just one thing, but a list. I usually do all my mopping, dusting, windows things on Monday and yesterday I had a houseful of visitors so my house is actually in worse shape than it should be. Luckily it is starting out a cloudy day - much easier to keep the kiddos inside and easier for me to get some work done.
So for today I have to:
  1. Do about 6 loads of laundry - wash, fold, put away
  2. Dust in each of the rooms
  3. Help the kids clean their bedrooms
  4. Upstairs bathroom need scrubbed - showers, floors, sinks etc.
  5. Downstairs bathroom needs scrubbed - showers, floors, sinks, etc.
  6. Sweep Kitchen and Foyer and mop
  7. Run Vacuum
  8. Clean back porch

I usually do a little each day, but the weekend was busy and so was the end of last week, so today is a get it all done day! We'll have to eat dinner out tonight so I don't mess up the house. That would be a great reward for completing my tackle today:)

I love the reward! sounds like my kind of idea! After I get the house in tip top shape I wish the kids didn't have to come in;)
doesn't look like a good VB kind of day, bummer as we havn't been there in like 3 weeks! ugh!
have a great motivational cleaning day! I would need a sherri's AUTUMN TWILIGHT(yummy coffee) for this task! Then I could do it all with a smile on my face;)
