Today I’m gonna totally cheat, and count this for both the Purgathon series,
and the Seven Seconds Scullery series, because it’s paper purging, in the kitchen. Is that cheating?? Multi-tasking? Or just wise time management??
Here’s the hot spot for today.
15 minutes on the timer, GO!
Since these were right on top, I picked them up first. Now, a dilemma. My mentor, Dana, sez take stuff to where it belongs, right now! But, I’m lazy, soooo I doan wanna do that!! (But, she totally has a good reason for it. It eliminates making a bigger mess.) So, do I listen to her, and do it the
right Dana way, or make a pile, and take all the like things together later? To my surprise, I decided to listen for once, and took them to the bathroom right away.
But wait a minute!! Why did you have bath bombs on your microwave to begin with?? Well, because DD1 made them in a craft class, on her birthday, and she doesn’t have a bath tub. That still doesn’t explain the “on the microwave” part. Because it’s right by the door, duh! She may or may not have inherited a dab bit of my lazy bones.
Extra pill box, that I gave to Mama, and boomeranged right back. And in the donate box it went! YAY- me!!
PP’s day care papers. (Sometimes those people worry me. Look at how close in size the “small” and “large” ovals are!! Besides they’ve spelt her name 4 or 5 different (Wrong) ways now. And completely re-named PPJr. Happily, DD1 likes the new name, and is calling her that now, as a nickname! Poor girl is gonna be so confused….) Hung on the walls in her room.
I need to learn some new discipline techniques! Dealing with a strong willed child isn’t easy! But, it was easy to know right where the book went!
Confession- I did NOT take these straight to recycling. I waited till I was going out the door. I only go up or down my outside steps ONE time! (at the time, at least.)
The “fine china” went in the cupboard.
Aha! So THAT’s where that was hiding!!
By this time, the 15 minutes were up. Here’s the end results. (Except I did take the Christmas stuff to its bin, when I went out the door finally.)
And the reason the roach motels are still there: I knew it would be an long, involved process, setting them up, and replacing all the full ones, with these new ones. So, just better to leave it for another day.
I’m as happy as can be with the way that spot looks!! Now, the REAL work begins, of keeping it clear like that!!! (It’s such a handy spot to set stuff down, just inside the door!!)
So that’s 15 more minutes added to the SS Scullery. Total so far: 2 hours, 40 minutes.
