WOW– does THAT feel good! I made myself a target for THIS week– get my personal checking account UP TO DATE and ready for the new year. As of this moment 5:23 a.m. on Tuesday 12/28/2010 I’d like to report that I have completed the WHOLE YEAR … It’s been a LOT of data entry but the great news is that this past summer my bank changed their statement format. That made reconciling the last 6 months a BREEZE . I have to tell them. Maybe I will NEVER get behind again. THAT would be fine with me.
What else – Well, I’ve been doing some local house cleaning for the past month – “moonlighting”. Folks are usually way too busy think about organizing right before the holidays but housecleaning is welcome. You should see the great side effect here in my own home. I’m surprised. Things are getting cleaner and more sparkling by the day! Really– what fun. I’ve started using the naturally GREEN copper cleaner (salt and lemon on my pots and it really works …Bon Ami for the inside. (From GREEN CLEANING http://www.ivillage.com. I like their suggestions. ) Yesterday I did their microwave thing — lemon and water and nuke it so you have nice lemon steam. Then wipe out the microwave really easily. I recently discovered SIMPLE GREEN – all purpose cleaner (thanks Naomi) it says biodegradable and non-toxic … I need to check into it further but so far it seems really magical. A little help goes a long way.
So dear reader – NOW is a great time to clean out AND declutter!!! – I’m going to start on my files tonight! Oeeeeeeee – let’s get going on a new decade! All best wishes! Joanna
