Goodness it’s November, I can’t believe how time is flying by.
This week is finish my upstairs week. I did 2 bedrooms and one bath yesterday. Just need to do the master bath ,finish the guest room and wash or replace all the curtains. How I hate cleaning the master bath (sadly it shows too).
I still need to start my cards. Everything is sitting there waiting on me. I did order my stamps. Oh my such hoops to jump through to order stamps online. Accounts, password and security questions. Lol I just wanted to purchase Santa clause stamps.
I'm really happy with where I am this week on the list. The kitchen cabinets really needed a good decluttering. I spent three hours last night going through everything. They look so much nicer today. I still need to clean out the refrigerator, clean the windows and wash the floor.
I have curtains to wash or replace upstairs and I am done cleaning. I’m going to pitch the ones in the 2 bedrooms and make new. Husband will have to help me take down all the others to wash. I finished the master bath today. So glad that mess is done.
I’m going to work on my cards on Saturday. Will be time to get them in mail before too long.
