General Housekeeping

  • T!de Stain Booster has become my new best cleaning weapon. Love.the.stuff.
  • The house has officially been on the market for 7 days. We've had 2 showings.
  • Since the house is on the market, I instituted the "leave your shoes at the door" rule. My rugs have never stayed clean this long. I may keep this rule.
  • I clean a lot. I either have the cleanest house in the neighborhood, or we are the dirtiest people I know. I'm going to claim the former.
  • I have managed to maintain 7 pounds lost of the 9 from the diet I was on. New "game" will begin next Wednesday.
  • Just in case you had forgotten, I'll be testing in 17 days.



  1. How exciting that you had two showings already!

    I love the shoes at the door rule. We do that at my house also. Every little bit helps. :)

    Good job with the weight loss in the midst of all of this! I wish some of that would rub off on me. :)

  2. Great job with the weight loss! And I love the Tide to go pens. Have to try to stain booster now.

  3. You are doing awesome! Just wanted to encourage you to take time for yourself too (if that happens to translate into coming to my house to clean, I'm sure that's okay too). :)

  4. Way to go on the weightloss! Shoes aren't allowed in the house here and I LOVE it. Honestly it is pretty gross when you think about what the shoes track all over the rooms.

    I can't wait for you to test!

  5. We put our house on the market last May and while it was stressful to keep it clean all the time, it was almost "fun" at the same time. Especially knowing that all members of the household had to abide by the new rules of shoes off, dishes in the dishwasher, no toothpaste in the sink....etc. We have actually been able to hold onto a few of the rules in the new place. Best of luck with selling the house and congrats on the weight loss! Also, I cn't believe we still have to wait 17 days for your test!
