Cleaning Up

We are having some friends over Saturday. Needless to say, the house is a mess. So Sunday we made a plan - one room per day. Monday, we cleaned up the great room - it's not bad, needs a little tweaking but only about 10 minutes worth. Tonight we worked on the Family room. It's not quite there yet, but I dug out some piles that had been there for a LONG time. And we watched our wedding video. I don't remember feeling thin 18 years ago, but wow! Compared to now, I was a twig!

We also found a LOT of dust, which is mostly now dusted, except for that which is still swirling around irritating my nose. Where does it all come from, and do I really want to know how long it's been since I dusted?

Tomorrow is the big challenge - front hall, back hall, and.... stamping room. I'm going to try and get a head start tomorrow while the kids are at school. This is the dumping ground for everything that doesn't have a home elsewhere. Every horizontal surface is covered, including much of the floor. If you don't hear from me in 48 hours, send help!

Your stamping room sounds like my office. Piles and piles and piles of paper. And all sorts of stuff that needs to be sorted and go somewhere... I just don't know where.

I think horizontalitis is hereditary because I have issues with it in my house too....

I love that, "horizontalitis"! I have it badly!! (I inherited it from my dad.) And my husband does not, so it drives him nuts!!
