As promised, I cleaned the heck out of my kitchen yesterday. Thus, starting off clean week with an explosive Clorox soaked bang.
Yesterday morning, when Christopher took both kids to the commissary, I rolled up my sleeves, turned off the computer (I would have much rather lounged around staring at Christmas deals and reading warm November written recipes), and dug in. I knew this day would come, when I'd have to pull everything off of the counters, everything out of the cupboards, and then scrub scrub scrub. I thought, however, that it wouldn't happen until we had gotten orders to a new base, and were cleaning for our farewell inspection. I'm slowly learning (and this is a laugh), that moving out of a house isn't the only reason for you to clean it, hah!
I'm not even going to bother with going into details (about how I took literally everything off of its shelf, cleaned both the shelf and the item, and then put it all back). Nobody is going to be like "oh wow, she cleaned the top of the fridge too??" anyways right? To be honest, I'm completely exhausted. I'll just post the pictures, and you can have a look for yourself...
My pictures aren't the best this time around. Usually I put a little bit more effort into my photography, but seriously- they're pictures of cleaning (you don't mind, do you?).
...not so bad, right? Look at all of that counter space!! I realize now that I should have taken picture of the stove, and the newly filled pantry shelf, but- oh well.
One day down. Four more to go.
If you're joining in on the clean week action, post the link to your before and after pictures below. It doesn't matter what you clean, anything is better than nothing. And it will feel so good to have things in order before the holidays get here, won't it? That's my biggest motivator.
