It took me almost 2 hours to clean our teeny, tiny bathroom downstairs today. It hasn't been thoroughly cleaned in months and was so disgusting I thought I was going to catch a disease. My brother, wife and my nephew are coming into town next week and oh how I love to welcome my guests with a clean and comfy place to stay!!
I also cleaned out our guest bedroom, cleaning all surfaces and going through our stored things in the closet. I took a car load to the D.I. and threw out so much junk. I'm really purging our home of garbage and it feels so000 good.
I organized our laundry room/storage room. It's quite spacious and is easy to dump things in. There's still a lot of junk but it's better now.
I've also been working on laundering all our blankets. They smell dusty and I much prefer the smell of detergent and dryer sheets. I do one or two here and there. Not like I didn't already have loads to wash and put away today.
Oh and I even IRONED. Shocking. I'm not anti ironing it's just that I'm miserable at it. I make more wrinkles, get annoyed with the lack of perfection, I make my iron spit out brown stuff and end up having to rewash the item of clothing, and I burn myself quite often. But for some reason I want K's clothes to be wrinkle free for school and have been making time for ironing. Since the iron was warm I did their church clothes as well. Let's see how long this lasts.
Besides cooking, cleaning, running errands (went to the library and shoe store), I added more music to my shuffle, which takes a lot of time and is very tedious.
And I'm hoping for a restful, more playful day with the kids the rest of the week.
