Cleaning 101

It's hump day! Let's talk about cleaning today.  Yes, cleaning.  Why? Because we all have to do it in some way at some point.  After my girl Amanda was chatting about it on her blog last week it made me sit down and think about it.  If you know me, then you know I am a tad OCD.  I use the word tad loosely here.  I am currently the full time cleaning lady at our house and with a cat, a dog and a couple of kids, it gets pretty dirty pretty fast.  I will clean pretty much anything, but I loathe vacuuming.  Luckily, my husband will usually do this for me (woohoo) so I will do a touchup during the week or go ghetto style and use the mini vacuum.  I love schedules and usually write down each cleaning task for the day in my planner... purely because I love checking things off a to-do list.  Here is my breakdown...

Miscellaneous is a day when I will deep clean one room or Windex everything in the house or wipe down all of the baseboards.  Clearly, if I have a busy day then I won't do it.  It really isn't the end of the world if the house is clean.  I'd rather spend time with my kids then clean because won't it be clean when they're grown up anyway?

I love Pinterest for a good cleaning list or cleaning trick.  I have an entire board devoted to it.  

So don't judge me if you come to my house and it isn't sparkling.  Cheers to a happy (and clean) Wednesday!


  1. Haha, thanks for the shout out!! And I don't think any parent's home is ever perfectly clean even though we all try... These kids make messes faster than I can clean!! ;)

    1. There is no such thing as really clean anymore, for sure!

  2. And now my house feels dirty….

    1. Lol. If you saw mine you would wonder what I am actually doing when I clean ;)
