Snow Day: Bathroom Before & After

Well, living in MA has its perks (which I suppose could also be downfalls), being hit with snow storms that deliver two feet of snow granted me with a snow day this past Tuesday. In an effort not to sit on my butt all day, I decided I should get a little work done around the house. After all, tax season is upon us, and my boyfriend promised me flooring with this year's tax return (yay!).

I forgot to take a lot of before pictures, as I was just in the mood to gitrdone so I'll list what I accomplished, and post the pictures at the end.

  •  Disinfected the half bath downstairs
  • Washed 4 loads of laundry (and folded one, which is not a common happenstance in this house)
  • Emptied the dishwasher & refilled it
  • Wiped down the counters
  • Packed up all my make up/perfume/clothes/etc. that has been living in the living room for months and toted it all upstairs
  • Emptied every upstairs bathroom cabinet and drawer, bleached them all inside and out.
  • Wiped down the heater/switch plates in the same room
  • Disinfected everything including the shower/toilet/counter
  • Organized all the cabinets
  • (I should note somewhere that there were two FULL 30 gallon black trash bags full of stuff from the upstairs bathroom- ew!)
  • Discovered I had 4 bottles of orange cleaner throughout the house, consolidated them down to two
  • Dusted & reorganized the hutch
  • Made dinner and mostly cleaned up after it
It was a pretty full day! I got a lot of things done, and felt much better about it. I've even got my own make up drawer and one dedicated solely to nail polish! Splendid!

Note: The bathroom before pics were actually taken DURING. I know, its hard to believe it looked worse than that before I started...

I can't figure out how to work the images/tables on this blog application. I think I'll be looking for a new one shortly, no matter what I do it never aligns things right, even when I type out the script myself, it adds all this extra spacing and shit I can't seem to delete..
