We're amazed at the work the Midwestern Curers have done so far, and we're only halfway through the Cure. On Tuesday, we asked you to list your accomplishments, but you're all very humble, so we'll go ahead and list a few of them for you. lhedden hosted a party for 50 last weekend, raikenn built a handmade landing strip, Alana is getting rid of 75 lbs of clutter and and still finding the time to comment on everyone's pics, harmony france has completely transformed her living room and dining room, and everyone is pushing through the tough parts of the Cure and exchanging stories. Give yourself a pat on the back and link to your projects in the comments below...

Weekend Checklist (Deep Treatment):
• Clean the living room and its closets.
• Declutter books and media.
• Cancel unwanted catalogs.
• Empty your Outbox.
• Take care of repairs.
• Confirm what you need to increase or decrease color in your rooms.
• Identify what you need to increase or decrease softness.
• Cook at home.
• Send out your invitations.

Weekend Checklist (One-Room Workout):
• Begin shopping list.
• Enter prices into a spreadsheet.
• Consider hiring an organizer.
• Visit a paint store to look at samples.

Note: I'm out of town in San Francisco this week, so I'll catch up with you all on Monday - the start of Week 5 - when we move on to decluttering the home office. This is always a tough week for me (I'm a big filer), but I love the one-day media fast. For inspiration, see Janel's post on turning off all the lights for Earth Hour.

Good Links:
Our entire Midwestern Flickr group
chocovanillakiwi's bathroom is looking good.
STLcolleen looks like she's added some hooks to the landing strip.
Alana hung some artwork in the hall - looks great!
• We relate to thefarmersdaughter's freezer - we eat our share of frozen food, too!
FrancescaR deserves a pat on the back for all her work on the bathroom.
