Tackle It Tuesday: Two First Days

Both last Thursday and yesterday, I had "firsts" in the morning. And both days, I accomplished a ton of stuff in the first few hours of the day.

Let me share them with you.

As I mentioned last week, I disabled my facebook account Wednesday night and I learned the next morning just how much of my housework I had been neglecting because of the computer addiction from which I was suffering.

In two and half hours, I managed to:

Clean and vacuum the living room

Unload the dishwasher

Dismantle and scrub all of the pieces of the stove

De-clutter and disinfect the kitchen counter (I wish I had a before shot...it was bad!)

Scrub the bathroom floor

Dust all of the end tables in the living room

Wash, dry, and fold three loads of laundry

Has anyone else noticed that every time I post a picture that was taken in my living room, there is always a cat lazing around somewhere in the picture?

Have enough patience to let Aaron mix the eggs for lunch.

As I also mentioned, I decided to pull Aaron from preschool. So the first morning home we decided to tackle his upstairs bedroom. On Saturday when the boys were playing upstairs, Noah came down and said

"Mommy, the whole thing just fell down!"

I knew what he meant but I never went up to investigate because I didn't want to see. So when I went up Monday morning, this is what I found:

After about an hour and a half of ONCE AGAIN, sorting toys, moving furniture, etc. I ended with this:

So I guess both of the "first" mornings were quite productive. I actually am a little worried about not getting as much done now that Aaron will be home in the mornings, but instead, I will choose to enjoy these next few months of enjoying spending time with him.

P.S. How is your carnival craze coming? I have found a few favorites.
