Update - End of Year To Do List

I didn't get everything accomplished as I ended up picking up a shift, and then had some friends over last night.  However, I am pleased with how much I have accomplished.  So I'm giving myself until Wednesday to finish this list off.  I am already feeling better - I started taking Iron pills again.  Why do I not remember that when I feel so rundown, that I'm low on iron?  Ugh.  As you can see by the pictures, I've cleaned up the entryway and living room areas pretty well.  I've got the table cleared off, well, not right now lol  So I hope to have pics of the kitchen updated by the end of Monday :D    One of my goals is to Keep My House Clean - A 30 Day Challenge, something to keep me motivated to keep the house free of excess clutter.  I know this will my my hubby happier, me happier, and it will be easier come moving time :D

I am so overwhelmed with my To Do list. However, all four kids are home today and will be helping me attack this list. I have not felt well for several weeks, and I'm wondering if there is too much dust or mold in my house, so I'll be deep cleaning all day today and into tomorrow. I've made a list online before and crossed it off as I got them accomplished, so I'll be sharing this with you all day and tomorrow.
