  1. Looks like we are both on a cleaning kick!! I wish you the best!!! Have a great cleaning day.

  2. wow! hope you get it all done. where are you going on vacation this year?

  3. You've just reminded me that our house does indeed have baseboards. And that they need to be cleaned...

    What a helpful list! And congratulations on your Iron Commentating. Truly admirable!

  4. Wow, I'm so impressed by your to-do list!! I never think to clean the baseboards... or the bathrooms... or the sheets... :-)

    Visiting from ICLW, and glad to have found you! New follower, and looking forward to getting to know ya.

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog. Another Canadian here - well, Irishman living in Canada if that counts.

    Happy ICLW.

  6. I should make a list like this. I sometimes try to do the Fly Lady method of cleaning. We did a lot of cleaning over the past few days and it makes you feel happy when your house is in order. :-)

  7. It feels SO satisfying to give the house a good cleaning. I mean, not like I would know -- but I imagine. Good luck! :)

  8. Thank you for visiting my blog! I am very impressed by your list!!! I should get on the same bandwagon and put together a similar list. I wish I had a vacation at the end of the tunnel though! I bet that is fun to be looking forward to = )

  9. Great list of things to accomplish! I'm working on my house too and it seems so slow in getting down, but every little accomplishment feels good!


  10. I'm too scared to make a list. I have soooooo much that needs to be done.

  11. Wish you the best of luck, that is a lot to do, I tried a to do list and failed miserably, lol
    ICLW hugs!!!!!!!!
