Monday in Slow Motion
Blah. I need to start posting these at night, because I get up and start cleaning in such a frenzy I forget I haven't tended to my flock. (That sounds incredibly arrogant, sorry, lol.) Anyway, we returned from our coast misery, er, trip, and despite the fact that we were all slugs who wore the same clothes for four days, we managed to bring home a Hefty garbage bag full of laundry. I am finally through it all. Whew. Plus I had to attack all the germs and dust and generally offensive particles that I'm convinced invade while we're gone, even though I cleaned my ass off before we left.
This morning, I:
-Put the last load into the dryer,
-Hung my snooty clothes.
-Wiped down entire kitchen.
-Made my bed.
-Organized my purse, and really, I deserve a standing ovation for that.
Later, I will:
-Fold remaining laundry.
-Force the kids to make their room look presentable even though I can't.
-Hang more of my clothes, since I got rid of more stuff and now have hangers, GLORIOUS HANGERS!
-Have Quinn vacuum.
-Write up kids' late-day chore lists for after our outing.
-Clean out refrigerator.
-Dust more. And more. And more. And more. Repeat.
-Whatever else I see, with my hyper-trained eye once I'm back in my underwear.
For you guys, how about:
-How are our laundry and dishes/kitchen? Make this your focus. Overcast days tend to wipe people out so if this is all you do, it's a great start this week.
-Take the silverware tray and wipe it out, it gets grungy, along with the drawer while you're at it.
-Wipe kitchen knobs, latches, etc.
-De-clutter one hellacious area.
-Pick up living room in five minutes. No no, you can do it.
That's it. Start slow. Hopefully we'll have the important areas under control by week's end. Good luck and don't forget the music! I will make cd's for anyone who wants one.
