Assignment: Give your entryway, living room, kitchen and bathroom a quick clean
This assignment is intended to be preparation for the end of the January Cure celebratory get together. Although we aren't having a formal get together this weekend, I still gave this assignment a shot.
When I read the Day 21 post on Apartment Therapy this morning, I laughed out loud at the part that said, "resists getting distracted..." I am SO easily distracted. However, I am also speedy. Let me take you through the 40ish minutes I spent completing this assignment.
5:10 pm -- Arrived home from work, unpacked lunch bag & put my lunch dishes in dishwasher, changed into comfy non-work clothes.
5:20 pm -- Cleaned toilet, sprayed counters and sink in bathroom (to be left on for 10 minutes).
5:25 pm -- Put away a few clean dishes from dish drying rack.
5:28 pm -- Distracted by the fact that there were no paper towels sitting on the counter (we still need to hang our paper towel holder, by the way).
5:29 pm -- Went to garage and got two rolls of paper towels. Put one out on the counter and one under the kitchen sink.
5:31 pm -- Took out kitchen and bathroom trash and recycling.
5:32 pm -- Distracted by really weird looking bug on the wall by our recycling bin.
5:33 pm -- Went back inside to get my phone to take a photo of the weird looking bug. Photos:
|Weird looking bug.|
|Seriously, what is that?!|
