Spring, are you here?

by GettingFreedom on March 2, 2009

Living in Southern Missouri, you never know what to expect when it comes to the weather. This year is a perfect example of that. One day it may be close to 80 degrees outside, and a couple days later we could get this:

One of the best snow storms we have had in recent memory. Total of about 6 inches, that was mostly gone by noon on Sunday. We are to be in the mid 60’s on Wednesday!

Thursday I was on a mission to get my home clean before my house was bombarded with 6 girls aged 7 and under. When I started my list, I was on a mad dash to finish it. But, then I got sidetracked and ended up doing an all out spring cleaning fest! My home has had an overhaul, and I think I can almost hear it singing.

It has been awhile since I have done more than the regular, run of the mill cleaning. My home was in dire need of it, and I’m so glad that I did it. Although, now I have to make up for it and finish my To Do list from last week!

I washed all my walls in the living room getting them ready to be primed and painted and wiped down all the trim (ick, ick, ick!). My bedroom was becoming the black pit of doom–all the toys we were wanting to get rid of, and all the picture frames that I have taken off the wall (wanting to switch out pictures and regroup my frames) were piled up in there. Definitely not the sanctuary that it should be. I did a head to toe clean of this room as well. Boy what a difference it makes.

When I was done in those 2 rooms, I moved into my kitchen and wiped off the top of my refigerator, and the china hutch. I’m usually pretty good at staying on top of them, but I think it had been awhile since I done them last!

As I was cleaning all through out the house, I was also ridding it of the excessive amounts of clutter and paper junk. I now have a big donation pile, which really makes me smile!

Today, since I do not have my regular cleaning to do, I will finish up part of my to do list from last weeks list, continue to plant some seeds, and just relish in the awesomeness that is a clean, sparkly, singing home!
