Happy Monday everyone! I just go a couple of jobs done already this morning and when I finish this post I'll start spring cleaning the kitchen! The first job I got done was to put the stuff on the curb that I am donating to the Eplipsy Foundation and took the Christmas wreath off the front door! What is the first job of the day for you?

I have two teenagers (my daughter and her best friend, our "part-time" daughter- lol)painting my daughters bedroom- how scary is that?!? I will be putting up the wall border in the boys room. I loved it when I lived in an area that had a big donation pick-up like that- it was awesome and SO easy to get rid of a TON of stuff that way!! Christmas wreath off the door...?!? lol...glad you got that done. Although, if you are in a climate like me, then it is probably still right at home amidst the snow! Grrr.

The first thing I do in the mornings is to check my emails, and mylot. Then it is breakfast and depending on what day it is we might go to the supermarket or start the cleaning and we have been know to go for a walk by the river if it is a nice day and the sun is shinning

The first thing I did today was make my bed, then took a shower and then washed a load of clothes...which was my first job of the day. I then went to coffee, the grocery store, the post office and then worked in my upholstery shop all day until about 15 minutes ago...now I am going to have supper and then go to my Genealogical Society meeting which will be at a New Scrapbooking Shop which handles papers and ideas for Genealogy Pages. I do both so hopefully I will learn a few new tricks. This will be a nice busy and fun day.

I did my spring cleaning yesterday. I started at 2:50 pm and I stopped at 9:17 pm. I am still not entirely done. I have about another hour or more left to do but, at least everything I really needed to get done is done! Thank God! I was dreading doing it and, boy was I sore afterwards last night. I had to take a tylenol to cut the pain so I could sleep. It was pretty bad. But, I don't envy you that you are doing it today! Good luck! I hope it takes you less time that it took me! But, to answer your question for my first job today, it was getting to work! Mission accomplished! No, seriously, as hard as I pushed myself yesterday, really my first job of the day was getting out of bed to get ready for work this morning! LOL! But, I did get all of my work for the day done and am just myLotting away on my down time at work until I can go home in 32 minutes. Then, I will finish up the rest of the stuff that I didn't do yesterday. We are having guests this week starting around 7 or 8 this evening and I have a few last minute details to attend to when I get home tonight for their comfy cozie stay at Casa de Cortjo and Hubby! Then, I will make dinner and at some point later on tonight, I am hoping to finally be able to relax!

I haven't done much today. We have a housekeeping service come in every other week to clean up surfaces in the kitchen and the bathroom and the floors so we don't have to pay attention to that much unless we make a mess and know things need cleaned. I was hoping to get mroe sleep today than I did but since I have not, I'm procrastinating online and should be working on school work so I'm not up so late doing it later on. So, school work is coming up, I just need to get motivated to start it.

I just started my spring cleaning this week too, I work during the week though so the only time I get any cleaning done in on saturdays. I did do some major dusting and mopped all the floors. I still need to do the bathrooms, wipe down the leather furniture and have my boys througholy clean their rooms.
