        • We are in the kitchen this week!
          Take 15 minutes and scrub your stove top!  Soak the knobs and drip pans in hot soapy water while you clean the stove top.  Some elbow grease and hot soapy water will take care of a lot!  Don't become a perfectionist and try to get it as clean as the day it was new.  Just do the best you can and then scrub the drip pans and knobs.  Don't scrub the knobs so hard that the numbers and words scrub off!
          Anything that you do will be better than what it was!
          Every once in awhile I get an email from a member with a mission suggestion.  I received this one and thought it was great!  

          So here is your mission from a member for the kitchen today:
          I was in the kitchen the other day putting away the silverware and noticed how gross the silverware holder had become!  Also, the area around the holder was filled with little bits of nothing..elastics, paperclips, ketchup packets!  A total mess, in other words.  I had the thought that it would be great to have a mission for this as I'm
          sure there are plenty of FlyBabies just like me who don't think about it!
          Today is Anti-Procrastination Day and we are still in the kitchen,
          Your mission for today is to grab a trash bag and clean out your refrigerator.  You are to toss ANYTHING that will not get eaten any time soon.  This means that new salad dressing you decided to try but really don't like.  It is time to let it go.  Just as the rule applies to the rest of the house.  If you don't love or use it, lose it!  Get rid of the fruit that is a few days beyond when it was really edible, get rid of the veggies that are turning into a science project.  Check the dates on the cheeses that are potential science project.
          You will be able to really make a better grocery list when your fridge is cleaned out of all the items you don't like and or don't use!

          Your Mission for today should you choose to accept it is to declutter your plastic wraps and foil drawers, cabinets or shelves.  We all have a spot that we keep these items and there is always one empty box in there and some lone baggies that are trying to escape.  Toss the empty boxes, the rolls of plastic wraps that are too stuck together to work, and those strays that you are not sure if you should use them or not.
          This is quick and easy!  Have Fun!

        • Today is our last day in the kitchen and I want you to spend 5 minutes and check on the cleaning supplies and things under your sink?  Are there things that you don't use?  Are there items you have run out of and need to put on your list?  Now, what is up with your dish rags and sponges? If you need new ones, put them on the list too.

          Enjoy your weekend!
