So, continuing on with my UfYH routine, today was “kitchen day.” I actually remembered to take pics this time! I also did laundry while cleaning. It didn’t get put away yet, but our closet really needs to be purged before I can fit one more article of clothing into it!
Here is my main kitchen area before. As you can see, it’s not horrible, but could definitely be better! The counter area to the right of the sink is a catch-all spot.
Here is the after. I got lots of stuff off of the counter that didn’t belong there & wiped everything down. I even unloaded the clean dishes from the dish washer & put this dirty ones in… This is going to take some getting used to! :)
And, here is the stove & coffee pot area. (Yes, we have 2 coffee pots. My hubby has to drink decaffeinated & I refuse, LOL.) You can’t really tell from the pics, but the stove top is disgusting, covered in dust & pet hair… Yes, I know, I probably shouldn’t tell that. (Note to self: If we ever build a house, DO NOT put an air duct vent near the stove!!!) The range hood is also very dusty & hairy!
And, here’s the after:
As I’m sure you can see from the pics, our table is in desperate need of an UnF’ing! That will get done in time… I hope. It actually doesn’t look like much from the pics, but just cleaning what I did today took a big portion of the afternoon & I’m trying to pace myself… baby steps. :)
I’m also using the 30/30 timer app (the 20/10s didn’t seem long enough for me). I made up a little timer sequence of 45 mins. work/15 mins. rest; 20 mins. work/10 mins. rest; 45 mins. work/15 mins. rest; & a final 20 mins. work/10 mins. rest (actually to finish up). That’s 3 hours total. I figure if I can do that or even a couple of 20/10s each day, I’m going to be living in a spotless (or at least a comfortably clean) house in no time!!!
