Six Word Saturday

Thursday: The Five Hour Cleaning Project

My evening in Tweets:
  • The Five-Hour Cleaning project commences now. I will tweet as I clean, so I can keep myself accountable to what I'm actually doing.
  • 4:58 Cleaning needs sustinance. Putting frozen pizza in the oven. Will put away clean dishes and random groceries that never left the table.
  • 5:48 Pizza is cooked and eaten. Dishes are put away and cat is working on cleaning the one I put the pizza on. :)
  • 6:42 have just finished scrubbing kitchen floor on hands and knees. Is it perfect? No. Is it good enough for now? Yes. Kitchen Done.
  • 6:42 Just realized that if hadn't taken off work early would only just now possibly be getting home.
  • 7:08 Made a phone call about a project I'm doing. Good progress, he's on board.
  • 7:19 Just made Phone Call #2. Why is it that all of my calls are happening on the day when my phone cracked and I shouldn't be using it?
  • 7:40 Left a voice message and sent two very important emails. Why am I suddenly so busy? I wish I only had to work 6 hour days all the time.
  • 7:55 Just updated my blog post for tomorrow. Glad to have that out of the way. Ok, time to do more things that requrie movement.
  • 8:30 Have successfully procured an empty washing machine. Took a few minutes to read and have now forgotten when wash went in.
  • 8:45 Did a garbage run, walked into laundry room and washer stopped. Success!
  • 8:45 FYI January temperatures + Un-controllable radiator heat + living on the top floor + have all lights on to clean = 85 degree apartment.
  • 10:08 Took a twitter break there. Working on cleaning out the email inbox. Also had a chat with the person I left a message for. Lots done.
  • 1:04 am. OK, kinda gave up on cleaning the apt but still working on inbox. Oh well, got a good amount done. And yay for clean undies.
  • 1:05am btw... dude, whatever happened to going to bed at 10pm? *sigh*
Well, there you have it. That was my night. I've gotta say, I did get a lot done, even if it may not look like it. I might need to do another 5-hour cleaning project tonight though, at least if I don't want my Valentine's guests to have to look at the piles of stuff in my living room. (That's what bedrooms are for) :)


  1. this reminds me I need to clean...UGH! :( lol

  2. ~wishing you a much cleaner space...uugghh five hours! yikes...and no thank you...brightest blessings~

  3. Wow - Ur cleaning is making me feel like a slob. It's on my to do list today :/// grumble grumble. How good do u feel now that everything is so fresh and spic and span. good for u! Stumbled upon ur blog and loving it!

  4. You got A LOT done! I can totally relate on the 85 degree apartment thing--I had the same issue in my last apartment. I used it as an excuse far too many times to avoid cleaning. As for the piles of stuff in the living room, there's always somewhere to stash it that the guests won't see--be creative: closets, dishwasher, oven (don't FORGET that the stuff is in there and turn it on), under the bed, in the shower, etc. Out of site, out of mind! ;-)

  5. Love cleaning...BLAH!! lol I'm constantly doing it to make me feel clean. I hate a dirty/messy house. DRIVES. ME. NUTS!!!!

    Gotta love the clean undies though!!!

    Happy 6WS!!

  6. I'm tired just reading all you did!! LOl

    Happy SWS!!
    I'm your newest follower♥

  7. We have a company here in Toronto called Molly Maid. Without them my place would be uninhabitable.

  8. Way to accomplished a lot! And I hope your Valentine guests will appreciate it. (:>)

    Have a nice day!

  9. I need to have a 5 hour cleaning binge as well. At least you give me hope that I'll accomplish a lot!

    Thanks for playing 6WS!
