Spring Cleaning 2012

It's that time again for a little Spring cleaning in my home.  I've been gradually attacking this list day-by-day.  Since the weather has been unusually good, I also want to make sure that I take my little man outside for a little bit every day to enjoy the sunshine.  It'll take me a bit longer to get everything done.
