Cleaning Progress

I am happy to report that I nearly checked off the entire Flylady detailed kitchen cleaning list this week!  My plan was to write the list out in my home keeping journal and then not stress if I didn't get to every thing. My thinking is that we/Flylady will be back in this zone again in a month, so I knew I would just pick up where I left off.  That is my plan for each zone, actually.  It's hard to do it all, all the time, but this week I pushed myself a little, because the kitchen really needed it. 

The list is detailed and not things I usually get too very often, like the oven, the microwave, the refrigerator.  Cabinet fronts, windows, and back splash are other places I don't attack every week either.  The floor gets a weekly mop, but this time I even got under and around things. 

I just hope I can keep the momentum going!

    1. Maybe not squeaky, but a lot better. Your pretty new kitchen inspired me to get busy in mine!

  2. YEA for JENN and Attacking her kitchen with much fervor.. I bet the hard work feels so great

    1. Thank you, Jeannie. The effort was worth it. Although, it's being undone as fast as it was done. I had a dust pan full tonight and I just mopped it yesterday!!

  3. Sounds like you are doing great. :)

  4. Flylady is like a personal housekeeping trainer! (I need both kinds!)

  5. Fly lady is great! I keep on remembering her statement, "Housework imperfectly done still blesses the family." So when I don't have time or energy to do a proper job, I do a lick and a promise job. It still makes a huge difference!

    Great that you are doing the whole list for the kitchen. I bet you go into it and open cupboards just to delight in the cleanliness of it all! :)

    Your parent's moving day sounds like it was a lot of educational fun for your family. Isn't it nice that your children had time to do it rather than being in school?

  6. That's awesome! The kitchen list is long. I'm still trying to get back on track with the flylady schedule of cleaning. It really does keep the home clean and tidy.
