30-Day House Cleaning Challenge: Project #2 Vacuum & Clean the Bathroom

So, it’s time to make a confession.  I do not clean my house very often.  I am very organized and everything has a place, but I am not good about cleaning.  I could use the excuse that I have three kids ages 3 and under, but I’ve never been good about cleaning so that excuse is out.  My lack of commitment to cleaning is one of the reasons why I took on this challenge in the first place.  So I was stunned to realize today that I’ll be cleaning my one bathroom SIX TIMES in one month.  I know, I know…it’s only one bathroom, but SIX TIMES!  Egads!

Once I got over my disbelief, I cleaned the bathroom while Naomi and Oliver took their evening bath.  Evelyn was napping in our office, so I was temporarily hands-free.  I wiped down all the surfaces in the bathroom, cleaned the toilet, and sprayed the shower after the kids were out.  I may have received mild chemical burns from the Kaboom spray I used on the tile.  (My mom bought it for me in January, a subtle hint that her daughter ought to be cleaning her bathroom more often.)  Note to self: Wear gloves next time.

Then I had to get caught up on yesterday’s project, so I vacuumed the living room rug, the front door mat, the hallway runner, and the kids’ room rug.  I figured if I was vacuuming one, I might as well vacuum them all.  I have always hated vacuuming.  Vacuums are so heavy, and so loud.  I’m glad we only have one floor here so I don’t have to carry our beast up and down the stairs.  I think it weighs as much as I do!  I had to vacuum everything twice tonight because I didn’t realize I had it set on “hose” instead of “floor.”  Oops!  I was scared of the vacuum as I child, but my kids love it when I vacuum.  They sit (or jump) on the furniture, shrieking as I get close to their toes.  They are fearless!

How about you?  How did cleaning the bathroom go?
