MANIC CLEANING SATURDAY!
The weekend fade out began early folks, and I'm sure 95% of you will blame the fall, and all of its many splendors--squashes, leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, fucking rain that turns the sky black and sucks the energy out of my team. I already confessed to not loving fall. No one killed me. Yet.
So today, since I am due to arrive at Marionette's shortly to get their house ready for prospective buyers (cross your fingers!), and I did a lot yesterday, my list is modest but that doesn't mean you all can't clean your vans with toothpicks or cover your bathroom with a mosaic or whatever you want.
Before I leave I will:
-Sweep/Swiff/wipe kitchen, which always needs it, whether it does or not.
-Sweep bathroom floors, see if it's time for our shi shi bath mats to go to the spa.
-Stop avoiding the Post It note hell that has become my desk disguised as order.
-Force Reilly to make her bed, which Todd has been sleeping on while our guest built neat piles of basically crap all over the master bedroom like mole hills. She has some laundry to put away.
-Eyeball swap stuff in case Emily's Sunday swap comes to fruition.
-Pack up my supplies and Kirby plus attachments and do my very best for Marionette and Corey.
AFTER I CLEAN AND AM SWEATY AND BEYOND HUMAN:
-Retrieve the clothes at Old Navy I couldn't purchase today, as I had left my gift card at home. Bah.
-Go through the car wash.
-Um, what did I do with Reilly while I was at Marionette's? So, fetch her.
-Hit Starbucks baby.
-Fold all laundry.
-Dust fans, whic are turned off as I fight the urge to turn on the heat. Help!
All while taking the very best care of Deborah's dogs that we can. I'm sure Reilly will walk them and they'll spend time enjoying the Shangri-La Deborah built for them outside, so they can piss on Todd's garden. Shhh. Since I will likely take a repeat shower, there's a good chance that I will bring some Ajax in with me.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU:
-Three surfaces, de-cluttered, wiped, bare. Includes dining chairs.
-Sweep and mop all floors.
-Empty wastebaskets into main garbage and take it out and reline smaller ones.
-Dust, de-clutter, organize, cry at, your computer desk.
-Pick up 20 things in five minutes.
Text if you need inspiration. I want feedback!
