"Fall Housecleaning"

Essential Oils organized
NO! not me.  My sister. She is getting ready for surgery and others that have been through this have advise her to extreme clean her house and "nest" by preparing two places for resting in the house.

I got there when master bathroom was already done and the master bedroom was half done.
(She wasn't happy that I didn't let her get out of the picture.)
Her house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, open concept - Kitchen, dining room and living room.
Having raised three boys, my sister has a lot of things in the house that have been partially taken apart ... just because.  She also has some things that were accidentally broken.  More of that is in the youngest nephews room.

Cleaning is always better with a great friend!
With the help of Carmen, a good friend, Tabatha is going from one side of the house to the other side going through everything.  You know those shows that make you keep, toss and organize.  Well this is Tabatha's version.

The dumpster at about 1/3 done

  • I know I'm going to toss it - direct to the dumpster.
  • I'm thinking about tossing it - move it to a room closer to the door.
  • Need to keep - find a place for it.
  • Organize - find a place for it. 
I am hoping that her power cleaning will be an encouragement to me.  Although she has an ulterior motive and a professional cleaner helping her.  What I need most is "organize" especially after my renter moved out and I moved all my arts and crafts stuff upstairs. 

Please continue to keep my sister in your prayers.  She is hoping for a phone call on August 28th telling her there is an opening for surgery on the 30th.  (That is why the push to get all the cleaning done this week.)

Two rooms cleaned!
When I left, the Master bath and bedroom were completed.  Tabatha had made it through the laundry room storage area and she had started the kitchen.  Tabatha was leading the push by sorting, tossing and setting in a keep pile.  Carmen would come behind her and scrub down, dust and organize.  They were at a good breaking point and took a supper break.  (Yes, I did help.)
