My Tuesday became so busy that I didn't get any extra cleaning done, but I'm hoping that the inside of my house will be looking really nice by the time the weather's right for being outside most of the day. Then I can move on to the yardwork and just keep up with a little regular housecleaning.

How about you? Do you have plans for spring cleaning?

Super clean house sounds super great right now because I am so behind on house work. I have been very busy lately. When I am home, I have been doing a lot thinking and calling around to online colleges. So nothing getting done.

I actually need to put together a list of what I want to get done.

That does sound like a good strategy. Generally, I follow that. If I do find something around springtime that needs some TLC, I call that my spring cleaning.

Ceiling fan is done. Yay!

I'm such a terrible and non-traditional housecleaner and, with my dust allergies, I HATE spring cleaning. So I made a decision about 30 years ago to try to keep the cleaning in small, manageable year-round tasks and ignore seasons!

I did a little bit of extra cleaning in my bathroom recently and now I have my eye on the ceiling fan in the dining room. I need to move the table out of the way and get on the stepstool to clean the fan blades. So dusty!

I'm trying to think what else needs to be done so I'm prepared during the rainy weather that's forecast for the next week or so. The bathroom walls need a wash (ugh) and if I get my steam cleaner back soon, I could do the carpet in the bedrooms, especially in the boys' room. (I rarely used it with mostly laminate flooring here, but then lent it out and now I want to clean with it. LOL)

Otherwise, I'm just looking forward to opening all the windows when it's warm enough and letting fresh air flow.
