Let's give LTP a try--if the thread gets long, we'll just go into part 2 and then 3 and so on :) And the winner of LTP for this month is also LTP for 2012! So lets get to chatting!

I have spent the last 3 days working on getting my house cleaned up.  I have all the Christmas decorations down and out of the house.  The living room is in pretty good shape, but I do need to get under the furniture again soon.  The kitchen is decent, but one of my counters is covered with a lot of papers.  Mail and Christmas crafts mostly.  We won't discuss the kid's rooms.  Surprised  My goal is to have everything cleaned and organized before the kids go back to school on Wednesday.

Becca - I use a hot shower to clean out my sinuses as well. I am looking forward to my shower in a few minutes. I am still all congested. At least it has moved from my lungs to my sinuses. Upward is progress right? ;)

Lindy - I was thinking the same thing about the missing team boards!

Goodness Becca you were busy today. Shayne's home so we are having a multitude of lazy days. I really have to do some serious cleaning soon. I had a physio appt today so that was a 2 hour workout, then when I was shopping my back totally spazzed. I had to take 4 Ibuprofen and lie down. It is much better now, it had me a bit concerned earlier. I'm not quite sure what I did or what it did, but I don't want a repeat any time soon. It is getting quite late I better hit the hay.

We had snow in the air for a little bit but none of it hit the ground.  Right now I'm listening to the rain. :P

Way too warm for snow, great weather for ducks.

Hubby's supposed to get up early to double-check some work done today after he had done an inspection, then hopefully he has a bit of time to nap (to replace the missing sleep-in time) before taking the boys to his parents' place. I think I'll be here on my own for a few hours with time to do a bit of grocery/miscellaneous shopping without any kids! :)

I'm going to deal with floors and bathroom next, plus I should have one more load of laundry to go in the dryer. I got in lots of reading this afternoon/evening, so I'm hoping to be productive tonight and not too lazy. ;)

Just finishing up a snack break before tackling some more cleaning. Hubby's doing his gaming night and I took a nice, long shower after the boys went to bed (which might have cleared out any lingering stuffiness from the cold that's on its way out). The oven's almost done the shorter self-cleaning cycle. If it doesn't look clean enough, I'll do it again tomorrow since we have lots of chow mein left for Saturday supper. (And the meal planning's done for the next week and a half, woo hoo!)

Sheets washed, garbage and recyclables dealt with, a bit less clutter overall, and a break for lunch. Now to tackle dishes and sort the clean laundry. I was going to clean the oven but I'll wait till after we've decided whether to use the oven for supper (turkey or chicken chow mein and maybe egg rolls as well). I'm so thankful for self-cleaning ovens because I could never take the fumes of oven cleaning sprays...

Ben's done breakfast, so I should make sure teeth are clean and Ben gets in some daytime clothes. Will probably ramble/chat later in the day! Have a good Friday, everyone!
