I’m still in my jammies, because it’s been a busy morning. Not run-around-town busy, just oh-my-I-have-so-much-to-do-at-home-and-you-want-me-to-add-what? busy.
I was blessed to be able to help someone out by editing an article for them. An article with a deadline of . . . today. Which meant that I had to turn on the computer before my after-lunch rule. Seriously, I canNOT keep myself from checking twitter, facebook, comments, blog stats, etc if the computer is on.
Hence, my rule.
Anyway, I was determined to still get done what I needed to do. The beauty/horror of the weekly task thing is that I know it’s time to clean the bathrooms. No more blissful unawareness of the last time I cleaned them.
Blissful awareness that turns to dread as I start to realize that the last cleaning coincided with the last MIL visit. Which was the last birthday party, which was . . . ummm . . . a while ago.
But, knowing that Tuesday is Bathroom Cleaning Day means that it actually registers in my slob-brain that I didn’t clean them last Tuesday. Which means it’s been two weeks. And I seem to recall that on the Tuesday before that I did a quick clean. Which means, it’s really been three weeks. And I then acknowledge that I can’t remember the last time I gave them a thorough-hands-and-knees-get-out-the-mop kind of cleaning.
Wow, this is wordy for a quick daily checklist post.
Anyway, today I:
Loaded dishwasher (yes, this means that I forgot to run it last night, grrrr.)
Cleaned kitchen. Ish.
Did a 5 minute pick-up.
Cleaned bathrooms. This included removing my shower curtain, which my children seem to appreciate more for its face-wiping qualities than for its beauty, and washing it. Since I was washing that, I also washed my don’t-need-it-desperately-yet-but-why-not bathroom rugs, and the mop head from my lovely Libman Wonder Mop.
How’s your day going?
