I scrubbed our shower floor yesterday. Many times. For a long time. I even took “before”, “during”, and “after” photos with our DSLR, but I’m on my phone now and maybe sharing isn’t the best idea anyways. The shower looked terrible, and while lots cleaner, it’s still not perfect. I just couldn’t handle any more bleach fumes, plus my time was limited to Mary’s naps.
I sent my brother-in-law the photos and told him he wasn’t getting his deposit back. 😉 I’m hilarious.
Although that mess wasn’t really mine, I did spend a good amount of time also cleaning the tub and shower that I have been using (as well as Mark and Mary). I should really make those scrubbings more routine because it didn’t look too pretty either.
I’ve often thought of making a schedule for the chores I need to accomplish. I’ve even made one or two. But have I followed through? Nope.
I’m not sure why I think I may actually stick to it now…well, I know some reasons I guess. One is that Mary is actually napping quite nicely now. She’ll usually be in her crib twice a day, for at least an hour each nap. That’s a lot of time I can use! Also, we’ve been talking about me trying to pick up more shifts, and I don’t want our household to suffer if that happens.
Right now it’s ten at night, and Mark is crashed out on the sofa. Yesterday was when he worked his second job, and being up for around 24 hours always throws him off. Mary is asleep in my arms. I’m sitting in our orange recliner in her nursery. Attempt one at putting her in the crib failed. When an attempt is successful, I’ll go finish cleaning up the kitchen. We had five friends over for dinner, so there’s a few more dishes than usual. I’d really enjoy watching tv in bed and having seconds of dessert, but in the morning I’ll be glad that I have a clean kitchen.
Oh. Okay. I’ll post a “before” picture of the shower. I took some with my phone. Don’t toss your cookies! 😉
Do you use a schedule for housework?
