Blitz It Friday

This is a great week for me to link up to Blitz It Friday at Organized Everyday because I actually cleaned! Shocking, I know.

Yesterday, L had an upper endoscopy at Children's Hospital. This was all scheduled at the last minute (about 10 days' notice) yet we managed to get my parents to come out here from Chicago. T isn't allowed in the hospital, so it really helped to have my parents here to watch her so both mommy and daddy could be with L.

All of this to say that Wednesday morning I needed to do a serious blitz to get ready for their arrival that afternoon. Nothing like expecting guests to get me off my butt. For two hours (not including a few quick breaks), I got busy. Here's what I accomplished:
-started laundry
-cleaned guest bathroom
-changed laundry
-loaded and ran dishwasher
-cleaned the gunk between the kitchen sink and backsplash (yuck!)
-cleaned the downstairs half-bath
-tidied the living room floor

Thankfully the two bathrooms were in pretty good shape before I started. I'd cleaned the upstairs toilet and the downstairs bath a week ago.

There you have it, my longest blitz to date. For more cleaning bonanzas, go here.

By the way, the endoscopy went fine, we won't know the results of the biospies and bloodwork for another week but visually the esophagus looked good. And L was a super-trooper, so resilient, today he's literally jumping off the furniture. (For background on the endoscopy, you can read here.) Thanks for visiting!

You live!! Just wondering where you were. Did you get that bag? Is it holding together for you? Missed you.

Good job on the blitzing also. Must be hard with a (child?) with health problems.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

:) good job with the blitzing. That sounds like me whenever I find out someone is coming over. I'm trying to change that though!

Glad to hear the endoscopy went fine. Hope the test results are also fine.

Have a great week!

Nothing gets me cleaning or organizing more than expecting guests. Thanks for visiting.

Hey, just visiting. Thought I'd say hi.

I had one of those blitzes yesterday! Sometimes, something just puts a fire under my rear and I actually get a bunch of stuff done. Usually, I look back on those blitzes and think, "Hm, that really didn't take so long ... From NOW ON, I'm doing a little each day!" ... And then I go back to the way I was. :-) Hope her endoscopy went well.
