Speed cleaning

A couple of weeks ago I bought this book – speed cleaning…

And I’ve been cleaning up a storm ever since!!!

Most of the stuff is just common sense, but there’s lots of good tips in there, and also includes a section on what products you should use to remove which type of stain. Last weekend it spurred me on to clean in areas that I just DON’T remember to clean – like cleaning out the fridge, dusting blinds, cleaning the grout in the tiles in the bathrooms and sweeping the deck. I managed to get the kitchen looking spotless, well, as spotless as my kitchen can get before its renovated (just don’t open the pantry door – I haven’t made it that far yet!) and have kept it looking that way all week (YAY me!!)

I’ve never been a tidy person, so this is a big accomplishment for me. Its nice to get up in the morning and see it all shining and sparkling!

Its been a bit cold here this week – its making it tough to get out of bed in the mornings. I seem to have lost my mojo a little bit lately, and I need to work on getting it back, so I’m going to re-read Fattitude this weekend in an effort to get me fired back up again. That should do the trick!

Hilary I hit a MAJOR slump a few weeks ago (loss of mojo you call it) and I decided to re-read Fattitude. It was just what I needed to give me the required kick in the butt, proverbial slap in the face and push in the right direction. Hope it also works for you.

I've been in cleaning mode this weekend too-maybe I'll have to check out this book to get the house in better shape!
Hope you get your mojo back; that's something I've been lacking too-but started reading a book called "the artists way"-and it's already got me motivated for life again.
Have a great weekend!
