Spring Cleaning in August?
Yes, I know it's a little late for spring cleaning, but my house really needs it. That's what I'm doing today. My kitchen still shows the remains of cooking for the last two days on the countertops. My bathroom is getting dusty and I'm afraid the caulking in my shower is started to grow mold. EWW! I'll have to deal with that quickly. I have so many school books and toys in my room, I can barely see the floor, not to mention my desk. My laundry is in process, but there are still a few loads left to do. All my bookshelves need dusted and my floors need vacuumed. My ceiling fans are dripping with dust so they must be cleaned also. Then there's the kids' rooms. They have toys and clothes everywhere and their bathroom is just gross (always). So today, we clean. The kids will have to help. I didn't make all this mess, and I have no intention of cleaning it all. B1 can clean their bathroom and the others can clean their rooms. Everyone can pick up toys and things that don't belong in other rooms. Other chores can also be done by the kids. Unfortunately, that still leaves me with quite a lot. H had to work some today so his contribution to this will be minimal. To his credit, he did load the dishwasher before he left. With all this work to do, I should probably get started. With any luck and a lot of elbow grease, tomorrow morning, I can wake up to a nice clean house!
