Hey all you freakishly competitive Spokane mommas... ready for a challenge?
 
:giggle:

Ok, my house needs to be cleaned BAD :hide:! I need a little drive though, so anyone want to play?

My suggested rules....
1. Take pics of what your house looks like NOW :blush: and post them by 10am Saturady morning - retakes of a clean house by Sunday 7pm.
2. Each momma competing puts something in the 'pot' - I'll put a 1/2 dozen 8 x 8 velour/baby terry wipes in the pot
3. THE WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN BY A POLL IN THE OFF TOPIC SECTION as to who did the most cleaning :thumbsup:

All the little things count too - laundry, the fridge you've been meaning to clean since Christmas time - just take a pre been cleaned picture of it !

What do you think???? A go or should I have the thread deleted? :roflmbo:

The pot:



Meaghan - 2 Dozen velour/baby terry wipes 8x8 or .... a cheesburger :rofl: (sorry Lacey, just had to add that!)
Lacey - Nursing cover or Rice Bag?
April - Dipe, you pick size and gender, she picks color :)
Momma, I don't know your name yet :blush: - homebaked yumminess!


**I upped my anti again - it didn't seem even :) **

You know I'm in.



I'll go take pics when the commercials are on for the Olympics.

Meaghan, you rock for your wonderful ideas.

We went back to Edgecliff and ate dinner...lots of random dogs running around.

Re: Hey all you freakishly competitive Spokane mommas... ready for a challenge?
 
I'm uppin' my anti :). Dozen wipes...

Anyhow, here's my pics and excuses to follow :blush:

LIVING ROOM - My co-op shipping boxes and the flooring for our kitchen won't be going anywhere :banghead: Yea for keeping shoes organized :blush:
BEFORE:http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge001.jpghttp://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge015.jpg

AFTER: My jogger is going to have to live in here for a couple more days until I get to take all the Goodwill stuff and drop it off that's living in the back of my suburban
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge008.jpghttp://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge007.jpg

KITCHEN - we're not quite done w/remodeling, so the floor isn't finished, some of the trimwork, etc. I AM GOING TO GET THIS MASSIVE PILE OF CONSTRUCTION CRAP OUT OF HERE THOUGH! And, yes, my fridge needs love....ewww :yuck: !
BEFORE:http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge016.jpghttp://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge017.jpg

AFTER: I cleaned out my fridge!!! Good news... I learned I think I LOVE ironing compared to cleaning the fridge :thumbsup: - I think next time I'll have to give myself a choice..."OK, Meaghan, it's either iron DH's shirts or clean the fridge." :giggle: Nathan's construction/tools are still in the corner...he just about killed me when I started moving them out to the shed - he doesn't want to have to walk all the way out there to get them each time he needs a tool :dunno:
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge003.jpghttp://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge002.jpg

FAMILY ROOM - I'll try to put DH away for the post pics :giggle: My DESK is a mess!
BEFORE: http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge020.jpghttp://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge019.jpg
AFTER: http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge005.jpghttp://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge004.jpg
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge001.jpg

BOYS' ROOM - It always looks like this :shrug:
BEFORE:http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge007.jpg
AFTER: http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge006.jpg

GIRLS' ROOM - yea, that's the linolium floor that will be going in the bathroom :giggle:
BEFORE:http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge009.jpg
AFTER: http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge012.jpghttp://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge013.jpg
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge011.jpg

SEWING ROOM - OK this is SO not my issue :rofl: Olivia helps me by pulling ALL the fabric out of the cabinets :giggle:
BEFORE:http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge008.jpg
AFTER: Not yet vaccumed :(
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge014.jpg

MASTER BEDROOM - Clean clothes that need to be put away, dh's nasty nightstand
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...lenge013-1.jpg
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge012.jpg
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge010.jpg
NO AFTERS - didn't even touch it - Nathan did some sanding and didn't put the plastic up in the doorway between the bath and our room - so there's a nice thick layer of dust on EVERYTHING. I'm not touching the room right now!

BATHROOM - again in mist of remodel, but I can sure put some time into cleaning it up!
BEFORE:
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge014.jpg
AFTER: No cleaning done, but Nathan got the pocket door installed and the tile up!
http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/h...allenge009.jpg

LAUNDRY to do -
BEFORE: at least 5 loads of our clothes, sheets from our bed and all four kids (2 loads), Patrick's laundry (did the girls' and Owen's today), and a load of dipes - so 9 loads :gah:
AFTER: did 4 loads

The HALLWAY - the collector of homeless things!

Dude, you're sick :yuck: ! We have a baby (that uses the baby oil lotion), not much of ANYTHING going on in the bedroom period, and even if there were.... aren't you NOT supposed to use oil based lubes like that :headscratch: !?!? :giggle:
