3 days ago....

MY HOUSE WAS CLEAN!!!!
Today....not so much! Kip and I have apparently decided to start a few projects that at this point are not finished. Any of you that know me will see these pictures and know just how much this is making me CRAZY but it is LIFE and what can you do right?? So here is a peek into my home at is's craziest in quite a while....
First our room, yep our bed is taken apart. I decided to wash all the sheets (yes I do that regularly) but also the bed skirt since it has gathered some dog hair, which is NASTY to me!! SO I had to move the mattress which we also plan on flipping and vacuuming before we put everything back together.....

...which leads us to what will be Brooke's room, right now holding our guest bed... yep we have been sleeping there the last 2 nights because we have forgotten till 11pm that our bed needs to be put back together. I normally make the bed in the morning but for some reason since this is the "guest bed" and not our own bed it has not been made??? Yeah don't quite know why?

Now my next little project that has been left begun but not finished...my mom gave me this jewelry box because she got some expensive little gadget so I decided to go through my jewels and get rid of the many many things I no longer wear, but this project has also been started but not finished.... this is SO not like me...

... and for Kip's begun project that was started last night after we had a discussion on the projects that needed to be done before little Brooke's arrival into our home. He is making our downstairs closet deeper since this closet is basically the room that goes under the stairs. We plan on using this space for food storage and kid toys so they are not out all over downstairs. Last night he knocked out the wall and whala....lots more room in our closet. He plans on having it finished by Monday??? We shall see??

Until then all the junk that was in that closet is now in my family room...AAAAaaaa!!! So yeah, this project needs to be done ASAP or I may snap?? But I am glad we are doing it so for now I am being patient!

So there you have it... my home that was once clean 3 days ago is now in shambles! And my blinds have not begun to be cleaned! Thanks so much for the tips, I think I am going to go with Lacie's strategy even though it seems that it will take the most time. I plan on hitting 1 window a day to perfection...I have 20 windows... which means each window will only go 20 days without being cleaned. Not too overwhelming to take on right???
OK well I hope you all enjoyed this post, especially those of you who know me well :)

That was great! I have three loads of laundry and some deep cleaning that needs to happen and I am a clean freak like you and with all my busyness have not gotten to it yet! Little projects are a blast!

WOW! You weren't kidding. You must be going insane! I can't imagine that Sarah (especially a prego sarah) would be able to handle this for long. I am sure your house will be immacualte again in no time at all :)

Demolition is definitely the best part of Kipper's project! Finishing by Monday . . . well, what's wrong with finding more room through demolition first?!

Vanessa said...

I told Josh about the closet idea and he totally wants to do it too! So when kips done we might need some pointers! :)

Great plans! Don't stress about a clean house, once the baby comes you'll have no time for it anyway! =)
