    I'm trying to get our spring cleaning done, and, as you can see, I'm just not that into it, lol. We've just got so much junk that needs to go, a futon that hasn't been used in two years, an extra baby swing, TONS of clothes (some of which I've been fighting with hubby to get rid of, grrr) and just all kinds of junk that has been packratted away that we'll never use, like having two EXTRA computers and some computer equipment, bed sheets galore (for two different bed sizes, and I'm buying new ones for the new bed, darn it), along with papers and crap from five years ago that isn't necessary anymore. We have baby clothes from our son (who's 15 months now) that I would love to freecycle, but we have another due in early April, so I've been holding onto it. *Sigh* I swear, it's going to take me until NEXT spring to get this crap taken care of.

    I don't mind doing it, only I usually do it in January when it is dreary and cold out, by spring it is done and I can go outside and enjoy the crisp spring air!
    Also, lots of caffine helps [​IMG]

    If you don't mind spring cleaning, how about coming over for some coffee and helping out? Lmao. It doesn't help that it's hot as heck in here, I'm sweating up a storm, and I still have an inkling of yuckies from the flu, and the kiddo is still down with it, hubby's sleeping (so I have to be quiet as possible). Gah, I wish I could go to sleep and wake up to a clean home! Lol.

    Lol. Let's just say that I have been running back and forth to/from the laundromat, and I'm in a t-shirt and pants. The house is BURNING up, it's about 85F in here, lol.

    And, it's Folgers Original all the way here, lol. [​IMG] Granted, any coffee is probably good after you doctor it up like we do (hot chocolate, creamer and a dash of sugar, lmao).

    Oh. My. God. I just did 12, count them, TWELVE loads of laundry. I swear, I'm going to join a nudest colony. I pulled all of the clothes out of our closets (baby clothes that Gremmie outgrew, summer clothes, etc), the curtains, summer bedding, winter bedding, etc, etc. I figured I should rewash everything that was being stored, sort through it all and get rid of what we won't use. I swear, I'm soon going to become "allergic" to Wisk HE detergent. And, shhhh, but I finally tossed a few of hubby's work clothes. In my defense, I just bought him new clothes for work, so it shouldn't be too big of a deal... "No, honey, I'm not sure what happened to all of your holey work pants, I guess it's a good thing I just bought you new ones, huh?"
    I have a ton of people that I'm trying to work with from freecycle, trying to sort out who's picking up what and when, and finding more junk to throw onto the list for someone else to claim. Can't wait to get some of these clothes and such onto freecycle, I'll be glad to get rid of some of them.
