Today Hubby wanted to hang at his family's house so I was without D1 for the day. I slept in (until 8:30a!) and started with the fridge. I clean it regularly but I guess I have neglected it lately as it was DISGUSTING. I took out every drawer, every shelf and cleaned every square inch. I have known forever that Hubby was a 'Condiment King', but today solidified that knowledge. We had 12, yes, 12 different kinds of pickles. We have 6 different hot sauces, 6 kinds of barbecue sauces, and 5 different kimchi's in my fridge. I won't even begin to get into salad dressings and mustards.
I then started working on the forever migrating toys. We finished the basement last year and that is the designated "toy room" yet more and more toys end up coming upstairs. I am constantly taking them back down the steps. Today I went through both kids rooms and organized them and made rather large piles of toys to head back downstairs. This is something I can never do with D1 around because everything becomes her "favorite toy" again. This time also helped me sort through what is going to be sold at our consignment sale. I felt very accomplished.
Since I got the kids rooms completed I felt like I should clean something of myself as well. I've had a bag and a half of clothes in the closet to go to Goodwill. I have also had 2 sock drawers that I can barely close. I decided it was time. I went through and pulled out all of the Christmas socks and put them away and then looked for the socks that are thinning/holey and got rid of them. While I was at it I thought it was high time to clean out the bra and underwear drawers. My body is not what it was 5 years ago. There is NO reason that I should own thongs, NONE. I made a deal with myself that if I was every in shape enough to wear them again that I can buy myself new ones. I must have cleared out 20 pairs. Shame, I know, but I have always had a steadfast rule that if I haven't worn something in 2 years it was Goodwill bound. Undies are no different. I couldn't help but stare at some of these things thinking "I used to fit them", ugggh, tomorrow is a treadmill day!
I finished out the day doing laundry, dishes, vacuuming and mopping floors. I always feel so good after a good cleaning session. Its almost as good as therapy for me.
I got my grocery list together after Hubby got home and the kids went to nap. I spent 2 wonderful hours alone shopping with a Dunkin Donuts coffee in hand. Tomorrow is muffin day and I am really looking forward to it.... pictures and recipes to come!
