Spring Cleaning

It’s that time again!  I’m making lists and have stopped making excuses; the Great Chili Household Reset of 2011 has begun!

This afternoon, I did a quick grocery shopping (as we were pretty bare from being on vacation last week) and, in the process, cleaned out both my freezer AND my refrigerator.  Of course, I SHOULD have done this YESTERDAY because this morning was trash day, but don’t bother me with fussy details.  I’m working my way through the rooms, making note of what needs to be repaired or replaced (when the addition was built, for example, nearly all the molding where the walls meet the floors was removed; I want it back).  I already tackled the downstairs bedroom and bath in anticipation of Eddie’s visit (they chose not to stay, which disappointed me, but I was still left with sparkly-clean rooms!) and am chipping away at the kitchen.  My fridge and freezer are neat and organized, I know what’s in them now, and I feel like I really accomplished something today.

Tomorrow, it’s clean sheet day, vacuuming, and laundry.  I need to unpack my Florida suitcase and am considering doing the Great Clothes Switch, too.  I haven’t quite worked up the nerve to venture into closets, but that’s coming, too; I am feeling the need to clean out and trim down.
