What We Did Today

I hate to admit it, but schedules work in the picklebarrel. None of that loosey goosey stuff for us. If I have it down on paper, have a time by it and have a snack or meal scheduled later, the work gets done. Today we were busy as it was cleaning day. Tuesday works for cleaning day because we are home all day on Tuesdays. So, this is what our day looked like.

It was busy but very productive. Though it doesn't look like anything was accomplished. But my bathroom drawers and cabinets look great. I also cleaned out the dresser in the hallway out so we can move that upstairs when Cool gets the chance. We took 6 boxes of stuff to the van for a garage sale Sokol is having this weekend. I threw away 4 grocery sacks full of junk that we have accumulated.

Ahhhh...I love productive days and who woulda thunk that purging can be so very freeing.
