  • So, how did you do kmw?  I had to reconfigure my to-do list.

    I realized I didnt have any swiffer dusters, so the dusting was out cause I dont have any other means of dusting the corner ceilings.

    I did pick up random items/trash.  I also wiped down the kitchen counters and master bathroom counter.  I also started some laundry.

  • DH walked in in the middle of my 30 minutes, so we 86'd the laundry, and substituted cleaning off the bar, and turned it into a "power hour" which we've decided to start doing daily. since we got married at the beginning of the month, we've been trying to start some new traditions and break some old habits. :) all in all, i'm pretty happy with my 30-minute challenge.

  • Awesome!  Way to have some motivation.  Congrats on the new marriage...my husband and I just got married the beginning of this month as well, 10/10/09.
  • Congrats to you too! We were 10/3.

    Wrap a rag or towel around the end of a broom handle and use that next time. People cleaned their corners long before Swiffer invented a duster for it! :-)

    Well, the funny thing is, all my towels were currently in the wash or I would have!
