The week is winding down, and I'm guessing so is our energy. The heat is oppressive and apparently you've all ditched me for strawberries. Infidels.
So in keeping with making the most of our time, I'd like you guys to set timers whenever possible in completing tasks, be they mine or your own. And I cannot stress the benefit of music. Cleaning in the quiet is like eating cereal with no milk or something. Don't do it!
I have done vague, assorted things today that will be of no use to you, so I'll skip straight to your tasks. They are:
-Clean and polish all fixtures, like faucets, lights, fans, etc. Not with anything fancy--a rag will do--just make 'em purdy. (It kills a grammar to write something like that so you'd better f-ing have loved it. :)
-Wipe down walls. Children = smudges. Smudges give me nightmares. Use Mr. Magic or whatever you have. Do it for me. Please and thank you.
-De-clutter three areas.
-Clear three surfaces (desks, tables, counters, tops of bookshelves...).
-Remove three items from your closet permanently. Tip: If you haven't touched/worn it in six months, it goes.
-I would be ever so thankful if you'd all go buy white hangers. The world will be a better place.
Crank up that music mamas, set your timers, don your do-rags and go!
