The house is pretty much cleaned up now. I just do a little bit every day, although yesterday I was a real slacker and I didn't even get out of my pajamas ALL DAY!!!! It was WONDERFUL!
Kitchen...clean, sparkly, and smells like orange essential oil
Desk...clean and decorated with Christmas decorations
Lights out on the front porch...ON!
Office...cleaned! (That took 4 days!)
Bedroom...uh, cleaner, not entirely and thoroughly cleaned, but progress has been made. 12 pair of socks are now matched and put away
Bathrooms...clean and sparkly! (also smell like orange essential oil)
Side porch...uh, cleaner...still needs some work
I now have a couple dozen pine cones scented with orange, clove, and cinnamon essential oils, so when one walks into the house, you are hit with holiday smells. My Yankee candles are out and lit most of the time.
My Christmas tablecloth is on the kitchen table. I haven't done this much decorating in 20 years!!!!!
Laundry is up-to-date and folded and put away. Dishes are done first thing every morning. It's nice to settle into a "retirement" routine! :-)
