Spring is here!

Wow. It’s spring. It’s a balmy 62 degrees in St. Paul today, and I am ready to leave work and rake the yard! Anything to get myself outside!

We are hosting our family Easter at our house, which gives us a fantastic reason to get some serious cleaning done. My students were taking practice standardized tests today, so I made some notes while they were testing to see what we need to get to before we host the big ‘ole fam.

Bedroom/hallway:
get rid of dresser
bag up clothes to donate
move the sewing table
bring a chair upstairs
mop the hardwood floors
wash the windows
move the bed over
clean out the closet
fix the headboard (This involves painting, so it may not happen before Easter)

Living Room: 
windows
vacuum
window sills
dust
mop
mom's photos
flowers
cactus pot

Guest Room:

clean rug
closet
wash bedding

caulk bed

curtain rods


Office:

move file cabinet
windows
mop
bookshelves

Bathroom:

sink
tub
toilet

Kitchen:

Basement:

A heck of a list, that's for sure, and with us being fairly busy the next few weekends, it's a toss-up that all of it will be done, but hopefully, after Easter we'll have a sparkly clean house and we turn our attentions to the outdoors, which need a LOT of attention this year.
