Monday, Not sure how to clean this house...

      Lil sis and I followed daughter Saturday to look at houses.  She put an offer on a house in Union town which is only 10 miles from here and I hope they get it.  It is much smaller than her old place but that is what she wants.  After having a huge house and trying to keep it clean and then realizing that they only lived in about 1/2 of it, she is over that.  I see her becoming much more of a minimalist.

     Plus when she works she can bring the baby down here.  I like that.  And who doesn't enjoy a dose of the Schmills.  She also plans on watching Oliver two days a week for B.  It will be a 20 minute drive for B to get to her but for free daycare with someone you trust well worth it.

     After we looked at houses, Lil sis came to my place and helped me organize the garage.  We can now get a car in there.  We still have a bedroom set that was my mothers that will go to my new grad daughter.  We are storing it until they get into the new house.

     Lil sis and I started to clean this house, but found out my steam mop leaves the laminate floor streaky.  So I am trying different methods to clean the floor.  Still working on it.

     I had a system in the old place and I would like to get one here.  It is just that everything is so different and I am dealing with a different pattern.  I tried cleaning all the mirrors and dusting all the fans and then all the window shades.  But my ADD keeps me from completing things.  I did get the bathrooms cleaned and all the floors vacuumed. I still need to dust under things and get all the floors mopped.

     I need Sissie here to give me ideas on how to go about this.  Today I want to go to Lil sis's and get a few more things that are in her basement. I am not feeling very good today.  Kind of achey, stomach issues. I wanted desperately to sleep in  but woke early and could not get back to sleep.  Will probably take a nap later.

Here is the shop.  Still not fully put together, but hey I put out 5 wedding dresses this week so I think it is up and running. Also waiting for Sissie's touch.

Look at that ironing mountain.  I was hoping to get to that this evening.  But I don't know just don't feel my best.

I still have 8 wedding dresses in the shop plus the piles. No rest here I tell you. But I I feel okay about the change.  I think?



The ironing pile.  It will soon take over the shop so maybe tonight I will take the time to attack this monster I think.

Hubs and I need to go to the dump, and then to Lil sis's for the last of the stuff in her basement. We are then going to go to the storage unit for our first look at what we are going to have to do with all the stuff that is in there.  Scary as this house is already FULL!  I mean no room in any closet or drawer.

We still have shelving in the garage that is up high but that is it.  I cannot miraculously make room where there isn't any.

I have taken so much to good will already and we have not even been to the storage unit.

It will be interesting to go through all the decor tubs and see what I can get rid off. 

It was 110 yesterday and the heat was oppressive even for me.  The wind picked up late in the evening and there was a fire on the hills over in Washington.  We were run into the house by blowing smoke.  Heat, wind a lethal combo for any fire.

Well today I have so much to do but first off must get a bridesmaid dress done and go to the bank!

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
