My Vacuum Cleaner’s New Frontier

It’s Friday . . . so I dusted and vacuumed.  In the past two months or so of this new Task-a-Day thing, I’ve developed a bit of a method for vacuuming my house.   Since all the main areas of the house have hardwood floors, I go through first with the broom and get the corners and edges swept out into the middle of the floor.  Then I can vacuum quickly and not have to try to shove the vacuum cleaner into tight spaces. 

I vacuumed the:

Dining Room.

Living Room.


Small hallways.


I automatically thought I was done.  But then I realized that I could actually vacuum my master bedroom.  The floor is clear(ish)! 

In the past, I’ve given it a good vacuuming when I finished a maniacal cleaning session, but the clutter generally reappeared quickly enough that it wasn’t a possibility the next time I had a random Vacuum Day. 

Sooo, Dust and Vacuum Day is going to take longer now . . . ummmm . . . great.  But that’s okay, I’m happy to have my presentable-unless-you-actually-enter-the-room-and-look-at-the-corner-by-my-side-of-the-bed master bedroom. 

Also today I:

Made bed.

Emptied dishwasher and cleaned kitchen.

Swept kitchen.

Did a whole-house pickup.

Ran a load of laundry.  With my new Laundry Day, I haven’t been doing any loads except on Mondays, and it’s working great.  However, an exception had to be made since we seem to have a child who has developed a strange habit of getting up to use the restroom in the middle of the night – completely asleep – and putting his underwear in the toilet.  Yes, underwear IN the toilet.  I can understand peeing in the hamper (don’t like it, but I do understand the possible sleep-reasoning) but I really have absolutely no idea what the sleep-logic here is.  And this is at least the THIRD time this has happened.  Oh the joys of parenthood.
