    Rent a Maid!!!!!

    Ugh.....springtime comes around here and the proverbial "Spring Cleaning" kicks in full force! I make a list (check it twice!LOL) for indooors and outdoors and take my time to get the stuff done. So what are the top three chores you all tackle for spring? Here are my three picks:
    Wash the windows, screens and all the drapes.
    Wash down all the walls and baseboards
    Steam Clean the carpets

    No one from Spoofee showed up to help me, so I guess I am on my own!!!:( Even Jeb Stuart is refusing to help, prefering to sleep and play with his toys. Lazy dog.......

    My biggest two areas (couldn't think of three off hand) that I need to focus on are washing all the walls and putting all of my clothes away.

    Washing walls here, cleaning out closets for yard sale stuff and windows.
    We had added this year landscaping and yard work. The yard here has not been taken care of, and I am sure there is at least two years of leaves to be raked/bagged if not more.

    My mom was an avid Spring Cleaner. You went thru every drawer, the entire closet, and wiped every crevice of your room. And it never failed we would get to the living room to start this process and company would stop by just as we had everything tore apart! Every Single Year!

    someone has to make the mess and someone has to clean it up. it is the 'Circle of Life', the ying/yang, etc.

    I make the mess - my wife cleans up the mess. It is the natural order of things.

    Oops sorry, guess I didn't crop out enough.
    I meant the unexpected company.

    I just loved unexpected company. :rolleyes: I have the same problem with my parents living so close.

    We are cleaning the bedrooms. My 13 year old son's room got so bad you could not even see his floor. He filled up three garbage bags and he is still cleaning! We are going to repaint his room and put down new flooring. If I can get all our bedrooms cleaned out this spring l will be happy.

    Just cleaned out the pantry today and tossed out three huge bags of junk into the bin! Phew...a tough week, but, I am making progress slowly. I think I have earned the weekend off! Tons left to do, but, I pace myself...not as young as I use to be! ;)
