Git 'R Done

After a lazyish day yesterday, today I got busy. Cleaning house, doing laundry, paying bills, filing paperwork and generally being the household Office Manager, Accountant and Housekeeper.

Today's Favorite Things are...

1. Making lists. I started the day with a list of things to get done and crossed them off as I went along. I am a list-maker. I always have lists going...things to do, things to buy, people to call, ideas, errands to run... I feel so gratified when I cross things off that if I do something that wasn't on the list to start with, I'll write it down and cross it right off just for the satisfaction!

2. Cleaning house. I actually enjoy tidying my house. It's fulfilling. Yes, I know I'm strange.

3. All my laundry done at the same time. I realize all the moms out there are snorting at me, and I know that my day will come (hopefully)...but for right now I am taking pleasure in the fact that I can do all my laundry in one day!

4. Having my ducks in a row. I can't abide clutter or papers piling up. My dear husband calls it OCD, I call it being organized. Either way, at least I know where everything is!

5. Jammin' to some tunes while I work. Oh, dear, I just totally dated myself by using the phrase "jammin' to some tunes", didn't I. Oh well, I AM a child of the 80's and just to prove it, I cranked up the 80's music while I buzzed around today. It was, like, totally rad!

***I can't take credit for how pretty the house is, because it's not mine. The green couches and our photos are basically the only things I brought with us. I will, however, take credit for the sparkling windows and mirrors, lack of dust, clean counters, made beds and fluffed pillows. Scott will take credit for the clean toilets. He always does those! :) ***

There's something about going from one child to three that makes the laundry explode! ha ha! Your house looks lovely. If I feel like escaping to a clean house I might just show up there! :o)

So - you're a fan of Larry the Cable Guy, eh? Me, too.

I thought the only time houses were that clean and tidy was when the professionals were coming for a photo shoot for a home decorating magazine.

It must be nice to be that organized.

Ahhh...Tidying up would be satisfying for me too if I had any illusion that it would stay that way for more than half a second (if that).

I can still do all of our family's laundry in one day. That's just *all* I do that day.

You have no idea how jealous I am of your lack of chaos.

Finally I get to see the house you live in. It's awesome. I know that you do an awesome job of keeping it spotless. She might hire you when she comes back to the states.

80's Girl!!!! I love them too, particularly when I'm cleaning and pumping some iron!

I love your talent for organization!
