Blitz-It Friday

Grab My Blog Button!
Organized Everyday is hosting a new carnival called Blitz-it Friday. We are on week three! If you have no idea what a blitz is, read here: the original one hour blitz and staying focused.

What at great blitzing week for me! I did an hour-long blitz on Tuesday. I was hosting our Bible study group on Tuesday night and really needed to clean my house. A friend offered to play with the kids at the playground while I cleaned.

Here is what I got done in my hour:
  • Unloaded and reloaded dishwasher
  • Hand-washed pots and pans
  • Cleaned stove
  • Wiped counters
  • Cleared off kitchen table
  • Took out garbage and recycling
  • Cleaned under the sink (icky stuff had missed the garbage can)
  • Swept all the floors (kitchen, dining, living, entry, hall)
  • Vacuumed living room (until I sucked up a toy and broke the vacuum)
  • Cleaned play area
  • Cleaned cat litter box
  • Cleared out the entryway (stuff just piles up behind the door)
  • Picked up living room and office area
It was a crazy hour, focused mostly on surface cleaning and straightening so I wouldn't be completely embarrassed to have people over. It is quite obvious after all this work that I really could have used another hour (or four) of blitzing. My house desperately need some spring cleaning!


  1. Yeah!! isn't it fun? Good job! Thanks so much for participating! We need to get more people involved.. how can we do that?

  2. I forgot to mention.. cute blog header! I love the concept. Glad you are enjoying the book.

  3. That sounds very productive. I was gone this whole week, so I couldn't blitz at all. I am kind of bummed about that. Great work! :)

  4. Great job! That is a lot to get done in one hour, you must have been going full speed.

  5. Great job! You got a lot accomplished. It's amazing how much we can get done in one hour!! Sorry that you broke your vacuum though!

  6. I finally got out the tool box today and took the vacuum apart. The infamous toy (a pretend bottle of pop) has been cleaned and returned to toy cabinet. And, amazingly enough, the vacuum still works! Now I just need to find time to finish cleaning...
