Day #8

Wow, it’s already Thursday.  This week has flown by!  I have done a lot today.  I worked a 10 hour shift and made sure to get my 3 healthy meals (plus a snack!).  I was able clean the master bedroom, which was looking pretty rough.  I vacuumed the carpet and baseboards, dusted the furniture, washed the sheets and blankets on the bed, and put away the laundry.  I also unloaded the dishwasher, cleaned the kitchen counters & sink, and scrubbed the stove top.  I didn’t get to sweep or clean the kitchen appliances, so I will try to do that tomorrow.  I also spray painted some mismatched flower pots (finally) that have been sitting in the garage for months.  I wanted them all to match, so I just bought a can of oil rubbed bronze spray paint 🙂  Maybe this weekend I can buy some mums and pumpkins to dress up the front porch for fall.

Tonight my husband comes home from travel all week, so I’m excited to get to see him.  I bet he will be happy the house is mostly clean in time for the birthday party we are hosting on Sunday!  My sister and brother-in-law both have September birthdays, so we are throwing a little get together for them 🙂 Luckily all I have left to do is clean the master bathroom, sweep & mop the floors, and finish up cleaning the kitchen appliances.  I still need to run to the grocery store to pick up a few things for the party and next week’s meal prep.  As long as we don’t totally destroy the house in the next two days we should be ready for the party, lol.

I’ve also been trying to slowly declutter our house.  My husband (bless him) is the spendy one in our marriage, so I am constantly decluttering while he adds to his hobby room.  Luckily he doesn’t overspend too much, but he gets a lot more joy out of things than I do. I have to give him credit, ever since we had to buy our (gently used) car a few months ago, he has really committed to trying to save money and get it paid off ASAP.  He has been much more receptive to selling items we no longer use and just getting junk out of the house.  That makes me happy 🙂

Anyway, I think the 30 day Challenge is going pretty well so far.  Hopefully I can keep up this pace!

Until next time…cheers 😉
