Monday, Midnight, Apparently...
I was up hella early because one of my favourite people texted to say she was calling in a half hour and in my stupor I morphed into a one-man car wash and cleaned my house within an inch of its life. For a phone call. Yeah, I figured it out.
So this morning, I have:
-Made all beds.
-Put away all the laundry that was hanging like some frat house shit hole nightmare when Emily came to see my house for the first time yesterday. For shame.
-Couldn't wait for Quinn to wake up and unload the dishwasher so I got the rack out and did them all by hand.
-Wiped down the entire kitchen.
-Did all the kids' chores because I wanted this place to shine for my phone call.
-Swept/Swiffered the kitchen.
-Wiped down toaster, microwave, stove top, dishwasher.
-Cleaned all windows and mirrors, including the outside side.
-De-cluttered the counter, putting Quinn's groups of Lego men into separate bowls, whereas they had been in visually assaulting piles. Ugh. What must I do to convince these people that my counter is the Holy Land?
-Washed Reilly's old quilt, which is really mine, and have it spread out like an octopus over three laundry baskets by the bay window to dry. It will be stored with the coordinating bed set I recently ditched.
-Dusted computer areas/dining areas.
-Went through Costco coupons, filled out money order for City of Salem, who cited my car for being ten minutes over, because my stylist had to re-colour a part of my hair. But I am NOT sitting in court for three hours to explain that. Bastards.
-Wiped down toilets.
-Sprayed down tub so I can scrub it when I finally make it in there. (I detest showering and delay it as long as I can.)
-Started new laundry. I swear y'all's laundry overload is contagious. Every time I turn around clothes are creeping over the sides of the sorter like some deadly vine from a horror movie. Maybe it's because I haven't been home for longer than 12 minutes in three weeks...
-Wiped both sinks in master vanity, and all the hairs that are falling out because no matter what I eat it's wrong.
-Cleaned out the bottle of diet Dr. Pepper--with my mouth.
-Just took that shower and scrubbed the shower/tub.
SOME IDEAS FOR MY MOXLINGS:
-Need I say it?
-Floors, this means hard wood, linoleum, and carpets, which means picking things up.
-Dust ten surfaces.
-Check master bedroom. Clothes, sheets, clutter. Dust. Make the bed.
-Windows and mirrors, all the better to see that beautiful sunshine you're all probably frolicking in and ignoring me. :)
-De-clutter one surface that's pissing you off/making you cry.
-That's all she wrote today. It's a good start for the week. Make me proud!
