Spring Cleaning (still??)

Are you still spring cleaning?

I have to admit that I never really started like I wanted to, now here it is May and I still have a list of things that I want to get done that is as long as my arm.  Okay, it is not quite that long, but you get the idea. 

I've been procrastinating, badly!

I wanted to paint the living room.  Not done.

I wanted to do something with these floors.  Not done.

And the list goes on and on.

But the one "job" that I really hate having to do after winter is over?

Picking up rocks off the lawn from the snow blower/plow.  Maybe its my bad back and bending down, standing up, bending down, I just really don't like to do it.

This year was different though. 


Because I have a toddler who absolutely loves picking up rocks.

So, bright and early we were out there this morning filling up our buckets with rocks.  It was a game to her.  Up and down the sides of the driveway we walked and I think we got the big ones and lots of the small ones out of there.

Time will only tell.  Or, when the first lawn mowing happens.  After the lawn dries out from days of rain that we have had.  But that might be a while yet as they are calling for more rain this week.

What is your least favorite spring cleaning job?

Have a wonderful Sunday, my friends.

Well, where I live it feels like spring just barely started, so really, you're not very behind. :) And painting is better done when it's warm out and you can leave the windows open and send the kids outside for the day!

We are about to move so spring cleaning is a little more heavy than usual--you never know what you're going to find when you move furniture, but it's usually not pretty...

I'm so glad I'm not alone. I haven't started yet either. Hard to do when we really haven't had any Spring weather for more then 3 days in a row. It's getting better though.

Like you, I'd like to do some painting. Only the bathroom though. So small, and yet so far away! LOL! Because I just don't feel like doing it. The worst? Well that has to be washing the windows! YUK!
