Spring Cleaning Sunday

With it being the first day of spring today, which I am welcoming with open arms by the way, I figured I would dedicate a post to spring cleaning! I will be making a list and striking off the things as we complete them.
  • wash windows, inside and out
  • clean inside of car out
  • install blue tooth visor
  • hang garage door opener
  • hang door bell
  • clean up the winter's worth of dog piles
  • get the patio furniture back out and wipe them down
  • tear down the gazebo that broke this winter
  • clean out hallway closet
  • re-organize dining room linen closet
  • wipe down leather couch
  • vacuum the other ones
  • clean bathrooms ceiling to floor
  • go through bathroom vanity in M's bath
  • go through closet
  • go through drawers
  • re-organize closets upstairs
  • organize the "toy room"
  • make access to back gate in yard
  • clean out cupboards - taking inventory of what we have
  • clean out freezer - taking inventory of what we have
  • wipe down the fridge, inside and out
  • wipe down microwave/clean fan
  • hem up curtains in great room
  • finish sorting out the basement
  • wash blankets
  • wash sleeping bags
  • wash old curtains before storing them
  • find pocket doors to hang in back basement
  • bath cats
  • clean winter coats
  • make spring wreath
  • go through kitchen storage containers and get rid of old ones.
  • spring clean memory cards by organizing them all by date on jump drive
Keep in mind, there are few things on there I do often, but they are due to be done again, so I added them!!

Yesterday while we were cleaning I switched up my dining room curtains, found a sweater I had wanted to return, but lost it, took the reindeer off the front lawn. We also came up with some ideas for some more renos we would like to do!! Guess who is hopefully getting a walk-in-closet? Oh THIS girl, who had gone without a bedroom closet since we moved here!! Hopefully it can be done, we have to have someone come in and see what supports what! I will post our upcoming plans soon... stay tuned!!

M and also joined Spark People to help track and manage our weight loss goals!! We also turned on the Wii Fit for the first time since moving here... sad I know, and as scared as we were for the weigh in, we have both lost weight!! M lost 3 pounds in 792 days and I lost 4.5pounds in 790 days!! I had actually lost more than that in the summer (15 to be exact), but gained some back... Here is to hoping we will stay a little more focused now!!

I think I will add a km tracker on my side bar to see how many kilometers I walk in a year!

Where is your spring cleaning list?!
