Currently Reading: Simply Clean by Clean Mama

For my first post, I wanted to share with you an exciting book that I am currently reading that is literally changing my life.
And no it’s not fiction for once.

To help kick off 2018 in a more organized start, I bought Simply Clean by Clean Mama with my Amazon Gift Card that I got for Christmas (along with other things). I’ve gotten pretty far in the book and have decided I’m going to do my best to post every day on here and show you what challenge I’m working on. I already have a weekly routine that works for me, but I’m going to try her way for a short time in January. I’m also going to do her 7-Day Simply Clean Kickstart.

If you don’t have her book, I highly recommend it.

Here is the 7-Day Simply Clean Kickstart:

Day 1: Declutter
Day 2: Bathrooms
Day 3: Dusting
Day 4: Vacuuming
Day 5: Wash Floors
Day 6: Catch All
Day 7: Laundry

She doesn’t have a free printable of the details of this Kickstart on her website, but I think the Kickstart kind of speaks for itself. If you don’t know what a Catch All is, it’s basically getting anything you didn’t get done during the week done on this day. For example, if I didn’t get to the second bathroom on Bathroom Day, then on my Catch All day I can do it then. I don’t have to stress when I don’t get it done on the designated day, I can simply do it on my Catch All day.

I have already started working on my Decluttering. I started with my clothes. When she talks about the things to do on Declutter day, she talks very specifically of a simply collect everything that doesn’t belong and decide toss, keep, donate, or relocate.

I pretty much do this on a daily and about 2-3 times a day, so today instead of doing this for 30 minutes, I’m going to make a list of specific areas I wanna do my decluttering in.

Today is Sunday so Hubby is home to help watch the kiddo. I have managed to go through my drawers and separate. All the clothes I know fit are in the drawers neatly folded, the clothes that I know don’t fit or I just won’t wear are in a trash bag, and the clothes that I need to try on are in 2 piles. One pile I need to try on, the other is a pile of clothes that I have that are different colors but the same top as some that I have try on.

I suppose today will be considered as Day 1. I want to go through my daughter’s clothes, the food, kitchen, and anything else I can get to before dinner time. It is currently 3:30pm and I need to start making dinner around 5:30pm. We’re having leftovers from yesterday. (I’ll be doing a post about the drama going on soon.)

I’ll make sure to take pictures before bed and have them up in the morning. They will be featured as a gallery so it won’t be a regular post.

It is now 4pm. I got some things done while thinking this post out which is why it has taken a little over a half hour.

I hope you enjoy my post and new blog!

More soon!!

Thank you for “listening”!!!

Yes… it’s true! I’ve finally finished “Lady of the Rivers” and am finally starting the next book “The White Queen”. I’m only 10 pages in but I can already tell that they did a good job of going from book to tv show. Had I known before hand that I would like this series, I would have read the books and THEN watched the TV Series… Both of them… What read this? Did you watch the show? Do you think they are similar (no spoilers please)?

Unfortunately I got too tired to finish the book the other night. Yesterday was just a really good day and I kinda completely forgot about the book… It was my birthday yesterday and it was a good birthday for once. So I’m gonna try to finish the book tonight. I have about 25 pages left. 

Wish Me Luck!

I have 30 pages left in the book and less than 24 hours to read it. I need it done by the time we go to THEIR house tomorrow afternoon. I really don’t wanna go. I’m tempted just to figure out how to make my birthday meal myself. I asked for zucchini patties, fried potatoes, and green beans. I NEVER eat green beans but with this meal it just suits it… I think there was a fourth food but can’t remember… anyways…

Wish luck on finishing the book!

Okay so I’m up to page 378 and counted the “chapters and there are roughly 9 left. I’m thinking… My bday is in 5 days and I could easily read 3 chapters each day the next 3 days… the start White Queen. Wish me luck!

Less than 100 pages and I swear if I had just 2 hours of peace and quiet I could finish the book. 65 pages is all I have and I’m desperate to finish it asap… especially since my bday is in a week…

Finally got just a little bit of reading done. I’m 350 pages of 435. If I can and am able to, I’m gonna try to get all my shit done this morning so I can read a lot during her nap…

Wish me luck and motivation!

I was able to read some. I have 100 pages left and if I can at least read 10-20 pages a day the rest of the week then I can finish this book before my bday and get into the next book.

Wish me luck!

I’ve made it to my marker. I’m just over 100 pages shy of being done with the book. I’m on page 326 and there are 435 pages. I’m hoping to finish the book by the end of next week… or by my bday the latest!

Wish me luck!

Update soon!!

I’m 300 pages into the book still. I just put M down for her nap. I was debating on whether I was gonna fold clothes and watch tv or read… As you can tell, I’ve chosen to read. The goal is to get to my next marker… Then do the clothes…

Update soon!

I’m just barely past 300 pages with just less than 135 pages left. I read a lot yesterday but was too busy with an early celebration of M’s bday with family to hop on. I’m planning on reading as much as I can today before, during, and after the BBQ at hubby’s grandparents’ house.

More then!!

Just over a bit over 100 pages left in the book. According to Goodreads, I started this book 16 days ago. I didn’t read at least 4 of those days so…  in 12 days time I have read 300 pages which is pretty good for a slow reader like myself.

Update soon!

Looks like I will need to get the cleaning done very early tomorrow morning as well as making a cake. My nose has been stuck in a book and Hubby came home and forgot we needed to run to the store and drank a beer. So… yes… I’m a little further in the book to wear I wanna slap the crap out of the current queen… but then… a lot is making sense. I have to say… even if you watched the tv series before reading the books like I did… I still am thoroughly enjoying this book!

Update soon!

Remember in my Blog Post today where I said I had a TON of cleaning to do… I bet you can guess what I’m leading to and if not I’ll just say it aloud… After M fell asleep at the table and I scooped her up and put her in her crib a little over an hour ago, I sat my ass down and began to read with the only intention of reading the next 2-3 pages to finish the chapter… 25 pages later… still haven’t done more than pick up M’s mess in her playpen and her lunch plus replace the garbage liner.

I feel no shame in this🤣

Update Soon!

Status Update: Good Morning Thursday {7.6.17}

Good morning, Everyone!!

My wonderful husband for the first time ever didn’t need my help and let me sleep an extra 20 minutes💕

Oddly enough I’m still tired. But I don’t have a choice but to start the day as soon as Sesame Street is over. I need a shower and need to get my house clean and organized before we have family over on Saturday.

Update later!!!
