Okay, so I have been working my tail off all week and weekend long to clean and declutter our house for pictures today and hopefully a buyer tomorrow! (Oh, I wish!) It's one of those things that I think-it really should be like this all the time! If only I were more disciplined! I read recently that it's a lot easier to pray when you're in a crisis. I'm feeling it! It's so easy to pray and read my scriptures when I KNOW I really need blessings right now! And it's easier to keep my house clean when I KNOW I need it to look good in case someone ever wants to come see it! :)
Since last Thursday when the realtor came over and looked at our cluttery house (the clutter is going to kill me!!!) I have (meaning we-W has been a trooper at helping me...M? Not so much! :):
-sanded, spackled, and dismantled the bathroom for painting
-painted the bathroom
-hung towel rods (thank you mom!!)
-reassembled the bathroom
-cleaned out my bedside table and cleared clutter off the top of it, my dresser and W's dresser
-cleared out piles that lurked in the corners of our bedroom
-decluttered the office
-moved the queen bed out of the office and into the garage (anyone want a queen size bed??) and moved the twin bed from the den into the office
-cleaned and cleared off the desk
-filed 10 months of paid bills and other "papers"
-decluttered the kitchen
-cleaned grime off the appliances in said kitchen
-once again cleared out the piles in the corners
-boxed up extra books in M's room, the office and living room to make the bookshelves not completely full (I still don't understand what's wrong with full bookshelves)
-cleared off the hope chest and writing desk surfaces
-vacuumed, swept and mopped from top to bottom!
-dusted from top to bottom!
-boxed up all our games :( I left out a few card games-if you know us, boxing up the games was a sad day
-boxed up all my scrapbook, craft, sewing stuff
-moved the couch in the den, moved the craft table in the den
-took out the sewing table, keyboard, sewing machine, blankets, scrapbook, craft STUFF from the den
-filled up the Suzuki with good will "crap"

There's more but I'm tired. :)
