the curiousness of a clean house

Well, it has happened. All of the floors in the house are clean. And have stayed that way for 4 days. And the dishes are done. And the laundry is done. And I even semi organized the toys and put them in the closet under the stairs for their new home.

I am now bored.

I never knew how much energy I was putting into NOT cleaning my house.


I do not have the urgency to read my books. I do not feel the need to hide in computer games. No need to watch one of our movies, or rent from Redbox. I am mostly happy with myself.

This is weird!

Now, do not think that I am done with organization of my house though. I still need to pick up my new sewing room and organize the closets and the garage needs to be cleaned out as well. But I have a schedule now and I am planning on sticking to it. I am going to do a project in each part of the house twice a week. I think that it is going to work.

A big part of this I think has to do with Jenny going to school now. She is gone from 8:10-12:10. And Sam takes a nap from about 9:30-12:30 in the mornings. That is a lot of time to myself. I have not had that much consistent time to myself since before kids.

again I say WOW!

Maybe this whole clean house thing will stick. What do you think? ;)

Sounds awesome! I would love that much time each to myself! It seems like you have a good schedule planned. I think I need one of those :P

yep... I love it. I just hope that the schedule holds. BTW, I know someone from your ward! Karla - that is how I got your Facebook account. She is the daughter of my bishop while I was a teenager!

Its a small world after all!:)

This post gives me hope that someday I too will have more time than I know what to do with. :) Congratulations!
