Spring Cleaning Checklist

Did you ever have one of those days where you couldn't wait to get started? You had so much to accomplish, but that wasn't going to stop you.

You had your list ready, along with post it notes and that napkin you grabbed at Dunkin Donuts when you couldn't find any paper.

I was full of energy in the morning. I completed a good workout at the gym. I made a stop at the bank then headed over to Target to purchase eggs for this mornings breakfast (since I accidentally hard boiled everything we owned for Easter egg dying).

I headed home, ate lunch, vacuumed and completed 2 loads of laundry. I then decided to head to Kohls to buy the boys some of their summer wardrobe. We are expecting at least 3 days with temperatures over 80 degrees. Both boys grew like weeds over the winter.

When I finally made it home I realized only about half my list was completed. Sadly, I was beginning to get tired. And still, I had porches to scrub, a gazebo to cover, cushions to wash, windows and shudders to clean, etc., etc., etc.

Well, there's only so many hours in a day. At least that's what I told myself so that my accomplishments seemed a little worthy. I guess whatever I couldn't finish will just roll into today. Or tomorrow. Or next week.
