Blog: Take The Stress Out Of Housecleaning
Clean, Clean, Clean Before Summer Fun
Cleaning is the chore I hate the most, especially when it comes to Spring Cleaning! It seems like I start on a small project and before you know it, I have the whole room torn apart.
There is 'stuff' lying everywhere! Some of the items are things that I haven't seen in years and forgot that I owned. While others, are things that I purchased and then lost and had to replace, when I needed them.
When I think of all of the money that I spent and wasted, it really opens my eyes as to why I need to do a major 'home organization'. I would say 'reorganization', but it has been on my list of things to do and I never really managed to get around to doing it. There were always other priorities in my life. You know, taking the kids here and there, a meeting that I just had to go to and countless other things.
It's funny, I read all of the organizing tips and hints and the cleaning shortcuts, but I never seem to put any of them into action. I guess what I need is someone to stand there and say, "Okay, now do this and put this item here and wash this with this cleaner or that." Maybe then, I would have a chance of getting into the habit of doing things the right way.
I want to be able to have fun this summer and actually enjoy the outdoors, without having to work in the yard, the whole time I am out there. It would be so nice to be able to go shopping, swimming with the kids or just sit in the backyard, without feeling guilty, because I am not cleaning something.
I read in one article that the first thing to do is make a list of all of the things that I need to do. Well, the number one thing on my list and the most important thing, is to hire a Professional Organizer, to guide me through this mess.
Well, my house is looking pretty nice now! I can find everything, it is organized and in storage containers and everything is labeled so I know what is in every container. My house not only smells clean, but it shines like it never did before! She guided me through every little detail and told me all of the shortcuts and taught me how to keep it looking this great. It was well worth the time and money and I bet in the long run, I will be saving ten times what it cost me, to hire her.
She showed me how to make a master list and then take things off of there for an everyday list that I can make according to the amount of time that I have for that day to accomplish the tasks. So, no more stress and feeling guilty either!
Now I have time for summer fun and my home is organized from top to bottom and clean, clean, clean!

Fun Things To Do
- Fishing Lake Michigan
Whether it is by boat or off the pier, there is nothing like getting that first Coho or King.
- Grandchildren are fun
Making memories for your grandchildren of all of the fun times they had with grandma and grandpa is one of the best memories you will make for yourself too.
A tent, a firepit and sitting in the woods is a campers dream. We spend a lot of time camping in Northern Wisconsin and I have tons of camping recipes to share.
- American Idol
I am hooked on this show, nothing interrupts me when this is on. By the time they get to Hollywood, I already have the top ten picked out.
- Last Comic Standing
I love to see how these people, take the judges advice and change their tactics to become great comics, instead of just a comic.
Now really, isn't he the kind of doctor you want on your side? He always has a reason for his actions, he looks until he finds the cure and he has flaws just like the rest of us.
- Any home make over show
I get some of my best ideas off of these shows and I also find things that I wouldn't dream of doing to someone elses home. I will admit, there are times that I wish they would call me and ask for my help!
