Yesterday was a day off for the challenge, and I quite enjoyed it. Went to see Tangled, then relaxed at home until we went down to the in-law's house for dinner and to watch the Seahawks game.
By "watch the game", I meant "take a nap" I'm just not into football. Everyone else in our family is though, both mother and father in-law, hubby, and apparently, our unborn daughter. She dances to the "Are you ready for some football" song, and likes to pretend she is either star kicker, or cheerleader for most of the game. this time, she listened calmly while i napped, but did get excited when they WON!
I am ready to get back into the groove of getting organized, and being productive around the house now that its Monday.
Coincedentally, I had just cleared this surface off 2 days ago, when I was on a roll after Day 1 of the challenge, the laptop was sitting on some junk mail, papers from the doctor, a couple magazines, and candy wrappers. So without knowing it I gave myself a headstart on Day 2.
Kind of an odd place for it, but its between the bedroom end of the loft and the living room, so I can take my laptop to bed, or to the couch. Or it can sit there and I can stand at it for short periods of time. That box is our can organizing pantry shelf that hubby hasn't put together yet. its been sitting there only a little while (3 months is "only a little while" right?).
Next to the "desk" is a pile of stuff that I have been needing to get to, my (lame) excuse, I needed to catch up with laundry before I wash the blankets. This was a lame excuse because there was more than just blankets in that pile.
Hubby's computer desk, looked like this: Top isnt bad, but what is with all the socks under there?
(This is after I told him I would be cleaning things, so he had moved his Magic cards from in front of the keyboard, so I wouldnt mix them up or something, yes, I married a geek, more proof to come)
I moved to the floor, picked up all those socks from under the desk, and other random trash and laundry around the room, finishing up with the broom in the entire room. This prompted me to straighten my shoe shelf also, since there were a few shoes on the floor. (I love how I go off on cleaning tangents)
Overall, I am very happy with everything I got done today. It was a much bigger impact visually, than the drawers i cleaned up yesterday, and it prepped for a big job we have to do when we get the baby's bassinet moved in and need to re-arrange.
