…. When you do it Caitlin-style!
I woke up this AM determined to get my apartment in order. I’m the kind of girl who isn’t satisfied unless her place reeks of Clorox and Febreeze. Of course, cleaning has taken a backseat the last few weeks with my busy schedule.
I put on my iPod and grabbed my bucket. I did:
- General house pick-up.
- Scrub kitchen and two bathroom floors (on hands and knees with a brush).
- Clean counters in kitchen and two bathrooms.
- Scrub both tubs (again, with a brush).
- Took out the trash (about a 0.25 mile jog!)
- Washed the front steps and stairs.
- 15 push-ups 🙂
The whole thing took me about an hour and 15 minutes and TRUST ME, I got my sweat on! It was great and now the apartment sparkles.

Attached is a photo of the post-it (and my silly attempt to be a little artistic) that I put up in the ladies room at my office, there are almost 130 women here and I think many of them need to read this message and I hope they visit your site!"

But these can be leaned places, and borrowed, and mailed…"
