I have been busy all morning but if you stopped by my house you would wonder what I have been doing. I cleaned out the mail basket...cleaned under the sink...cleaned my stove very very well (it looks like new now!) and other things that don't stand out as a cleaning project. So if I told someone that I had gotten alot accomplished you would wonder what I really had been doing! Do you have days where the project you do aren't obvious? Its nice that they are done but the work hasn't changed the appearance of the whole house alot! LOL

Yes, there are days. Like I'm sorting through the bills I've paid and am filing things or something like that. If you're all done, can you come by and do my house? Please?

Oh yes, that is why I only clean house when it is dusty or dirty. I used to clean house every day, but got depressed doing it. Like what did I do it for? No one else notices. Maybe it is the wrong attitude. But, I feel good when my work gets noticed. hahaha!

Seems like a never ending cycle. Yes I have had days like that. I think you have gotten further than I do most times.Seems as soon as I am done, it's time to start again.

Hey Jill! That's funny that you said that! I know exactly what you mean! I can do the very same thing and feel like I got so much accomplished, but if anyone was to look around my apartment they would wonder what exactly it was that I did since there is still alot of things that need to be done that are more obvious! And then you just want to stand there and recite the list of the things that you DID do, but then what difference would it really make?

That happened every now and then, just like when I had to clean the comfort room and it took me a day to really scrub it to white perfection. I was exhausted at the end of the day from cleaning, but no one would notice the difference unless, they use the john. . happy weekend.

LOL Jill, oh those hidden tasks, know them well especially the inside of drawers or cupboards but we know what we have accomplished even if not obvious to an outsider popping in. Well done. You have also reminded me that I really should get that oven cleaned. Huggles. Ellie :D

HI JILL, I know exactly what u are talking about. I HAVE BEEN CLEANING IN MY KITCHEN ALL WEEK TAKING THINGS OFF THE WALL CLEANING THE WALLS ETC. of COURSE I HAVE TO DO A LITTLE THEN REAT Awhile, that's why it has taken me all week & i still like some. I have alot of stuff on my walls & it gets sooo nasty in the kitchen. I don't guess anybody knows but me but i want it to be clean. AT least we know it's done, i really don't think anybody gives a hoot about it but me.

You are a busy beaver. I didn't do much today since I worked this morning at my part time job away from the home. I did carry dirty laundry downstairs by the washer and cleaned up the kitchen sink. That's the extent of my household duties today. Now I am tired so my other duties at home will have to wait. I do love having a clean house. Feels like something has been accomplished.

Yes, usually all the work isn't obvious, and once I get going with the cleaning, it leads to other things that need cleaning, and on and on... sometimes it's hard to stop once the momentum starts. It's a good feeling once it's done though. It's nice not having to live in squalor, lol.
