The other day I had one of those stolen days. A whole day to be home and productive while we stayed home from Tuesday school because of my 8th grader's cold. I never even started my car. Oh, I am dull but I love those days. You get so much done.
I started in my bedroom. It was dusted top to bottom. I then washed every bit of bedding and put on the winter blankies. I have been a little chilly at night. I still have not bought bedding but we are thinking of getting a new bed so I will wait.
For now a mish mash of bedding will have to do.
Then I attached the shelves in the kitchen and wiped them all down. How does so much dirt get in clean cupboards?
The gift wrap drawer was next. Thinned and straightened for the holiday wrapping coming up.
Last, before I collapsed, I cleaned the pictures in the house. Love how they shine now. Won't last long in this house. Kids, dogs and hairy kitties make so much work for mom. I wouldn't have it any other way. My daughter reminded me of this yesterday when I was bemoaning the laundry I was folding. She quoted me the stinker, "Mom lots of laundry means you have lots of loved ones in the house." The little pill. How dare she?
And as for cleaning glass. My favorite tools are literally prefolded cloth diapers. They are the best cleaning rags ever. No lint and washable for years. I am still using Q's old ones though they are about done. My cleaning solution is plain old alcohol and water. About a third to one is my rough estimate. I use it on everything. No smears and dries so clean.
