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?
