The hubby has been on vacation since December 21st. I joined him on vacation for the most part only working a couple of days during that time. The kids have also been home during this time.
The house looks like a tornado has moved through it.
So today, the hubs went back to work. I decided, when he left at 5:00 am, that I would clean/organize the basement today.
Oh what a job awaited me!
Our basement is completely finished with a family room, bathroom, bedroom, laundry room, and storage room. The bedroom gets all the clothing not worn during a particular season. The laundry room...well is a laundry room. The storage room is where all the Christmas items are stored, along with hunting equipment/clothing. So...yep...it is a mess. The family room is where the kids entertain and roam so its pretty much a given it looks like crap. This room also holds an 'office' which is where all the papers get thrown that you're not sure what the heck to do with them. Then there's the bathroom that never gets used and when it does its by the kids...you get the picture.
Needless to say, the basement is somewhere I tend to avoid and the area that the hubby has asked several times to organize. He would by all means clean the rest of the basement but going through the paperwork he wouldn't know what to do with any of it.
So I decided to surprise him by the time he got home (plus there was a guy coming to fix our broken washer and didn't want him to see the mess).
I started at 10:00 am and didn't come back upstairs till 3:00 pm.
The finished results are...the room is clean and since I was so busy cleaning I didn't have time to eat crap.
So since I didn't snack on crap and was constantly bending, standing, vacuuming, and dusting...that's exercise right?
I think so....I even dusted the treadmill while I was down there!
