Kitchen Plans

Okay, so I got a jump start yesterday on the kitchen. Hubby and I moved a bookshelf that has been in our kitchen since we moved in to another area. It will be going out to the storage shed to be used for storage purposes out there. Then we moved the armoire into it's place and while we were at it, we pulled the fridge out and swept and mopped under that. Today, my to do list is pretty typical for a kitchen job:

  • Take the bookshelf out to the shed.
  • Do the dishes. (Yes, there are dishes in my kitchen left over from yesterday. No, I did not do them last night. Thanks for asking though!)
  • Clear off the counter tops.
  • Clear off the stove.
  • Clear off the top of fridge.
  • Clear off the decorative shelf space above our cupboards.
  • Clean the sink.
  • Clean the stove.
  • Clean the microwave inside and out.
  • Clean out the fridge and wipe down the interior. (Thankfully, the freezer portion is not in need of this too.)
  • Then sweep and mop and voila! Kitchen is done.

You will notice that I did not mention dusting or washing windows. I'm being realistic here. If it gets done, that is awesome. If not, I'm not going to beat myself up over it. Our one window is mostly blocked by the armoire and before that, it was the bookshelf. It's also a window I have to clean from outside and it's kinda chilly out there. Also, as far as dusting goes, most of the things that need to be dusted will end up being dusted in the process of clearing things off and cleaning them. That's good enough for me for right now. I think the kitchen will take about an hour and a half to two hours to get it all done and tidy and looking great.
