Soo-Soo Saturday Whoa-oh!
Dude, am I like eating alone in the cafeteria of domesticity or what? Judging by comments you've all become hoarders. Thank goodness I still get my faithful updates via text and email, from people, god bless them, who refuse to learn to comment. No seriously, it's okay, as long as you're cleaning.
TODAY IS MANIC CLEANING SATURDAY, AND IT LOOKS LIKE THIS:
There are some other odds and ends but if I get this much done before Todd whisks the kids away for the weekend, I'll be happy...for .5 seconds.
IF YOU COULD MANAGE, DURING YOUR CUSTOMARY SATURDAY STRIKE:
-Kick your dishes' asses, which includes a cursory (at least) wipe-down for the kitchen.
-Beat your laundry senseless.
-Start these first thing, before you yawn, or start your coffee. Serious.
-Pick up your living room. Straighten rugs, tighten couch cushions, straighten/fold blankets, put baby toys in a bin, where they will stay for 10 seconds, line up shoes, sweep or wipe the (likely) linoleum entryway. Wash your main, or picture, window.
-Set your timer for 10 minutes and blast MmmBop (no I won't stop) until your sinks, tubs, and toilets utter a tearful thank you. Wipe down the floor while you're there too, maybe wash the mat(s)?
-This reminds me, grab five random items throughout the house and wash them. For instance, the toothbrush holder, soap dishes, espresso hoppers, sink stoppers, etc. You will be glad.
-TOTAL BONUS POINTS FOR ANYONE WHO CLEANS THEIR CAR.
-Extra bonus points for those of you who have converted, or are converting, to all white hangers. Please, no excuses about the ones your grandma crocheted. Save them somewhere. Utilitarian items ought to be white whenever possible, except for spatulas and such, which will scorch (if I'm cooking) and get discoloured--blech--and should be black.
-20 minute race through, and you're done.
-Okay now that I've busted my ass, there had better be some Kardashians on. Shut it.
