Cleaning Challenge/ The week ahead...
First off, an update on my cleaning challenge! This weekend the focus was on living areas and the outdoors. The living areas I was able to do some of the tasks but not all. I thoroughly dusted everything, scrubbed the baseboards, flipped all of my cushions, cleaned the entry way floor and I'm in the process of washing a couple of the rugs. I unfortunately don't have a way to shampoo my carpets w/ out renting something and have not yet gotten to the windows.
As far as the outdoors Matt and I are planning a big outdoor cleaning day,( which includes raking leaves)very soon, hopefully this week/weekend. I will complete all of those tasks then!
Here are my other goals for this week:
-Daily Quiet Time
-Continue completing the daily cleaning challenges, along with the everyday cleaning
-call dog groomer-trying to track down my puppy's collar
-go through/pay bills
-shop for Operation Christmas Child
-still trying to figure out some of the nursery issues for church (doorway)
-plan children's lesson
-rake leaves, plus other outdoor clean up
-plan menu for next 2 weeks, pair w/ coupons and look through sale ads to make a complete grocery list
