All in a mornigs work...

Today I decided it had been long enough that my house cleaning had been neglected. So I set off to do some deep Fall cleaning.

I helped get kids off to school. With the help of Jeremy who helps get Kailee up every morning so I can sleep just a little bit longer.

I straightened beds and picked up bedroom floors.

I vacuumed ceilings, walls, crown moldings, ceiling registers, doors, door moldings, light fixtures, ceiling fans, kitchen tiles, bathroom tiles, bedrooms, the hallway and living room.

I wiped down decorations, fireplace moldings, display table, end table, TVs, entertainment center and dressers. I really hate dusting, it never seems to be much more than a dusty mess again later. I like to just take a clean damp rag and wipe down all the surfaces in my house.

I cleaned toilets, sinks, counters, mirrors, showers, tiles and carpet. Yes, I have some carpet in my guest bathroom by the sink. In my home it would never be an option to have carpet in a bathroom or a kitchen. That is just plain WRONG!!! But when you rent "you take what you get, and you don't throw a fit", as my kids would say.I started making fun holiday decals to go on the hand soap bottles in each of the bathrooms. We had a spider, a witch and a haunted house last month. TOO CUTE!!!I hand washed the windows, ceiling fans, light fixtures and mini blinds.

I steam mopped the kitchen floor with my favorite new cleaning tool. I recently purchased a Shark Steam Mop for my birthday. I hate mops and swiffers!!! They never can do as good of a job as me on my hands and knee's. Oh, how I wish I had this in my last house!!! It would have come in handy with all the wood floors. I really do miss all the space this home provided! Some day soon!!!

I took down the Halloween decor and replaced it with all the Thanksgiving.

I finished the last two loads of laundry.

Now, I am off to organize ribbon, cut ribbon (lots of ribbon), make ribbon headbands, ribbon flowers, 12 sets of boutique bows, make a hair clip frame, label my hair organizer (with my new vinyl labels), and maybe some jars too. We are having a Bow Swap in my ward on Saturday that I will be teaching. So I figured it would be best to have all my bows complete, so I can help others. Hence: the 12 sets of boutique bows mentioned above. I will post pictures later on the bow results.

What cleaning fairy switched places with me last night while I slept!

Can I be next? I cleaned really well this week too, but not that good! DO you like your shark mop? I never feel like my floors get clean enough either!

That fairy needs to switch places with me please! I am in desperate need of cleaning. I'm glad you told me about the shark. i wouldn't buy one because it looks like the swiffer, which I hate. Thanks for the ad!

OH BOY! That is what I'm in for today. I love a clean house but I don't especially love what it takes to get there.
