Happy Tuesday! This morning I hit the ground running--well, I guess it was more like walking. :) I get so much more accomplished during the day if I get an early start. Lately it has been my goal to have the majority of the housework done by 9 a.m. so that I can focus on Lil' Nut. More detailed projects like ironing can wait until she's having her afternoon quiet time. So far the plan has been working out well.
This morning the vacuum was my cleaning companion. Together we tackled some of my least favorite chores upstairs in hopes of ridding the house of dust bunnies. Mickey's allergies have gotten so bad since we've moved back to Florida that he has had to go back on allergy medicine. I need to purchase some Kleenex stock. :)
Several years ago we owned a two-story house, and I always dreaded cleaning the stairs. One time I fell backward, and the vacuum fell right on top of me! I wasn't hurt, but it scared me to death! I don't have a cordless stick vacuum, so thankfully my vacuum is lightweight and there is a runner on the steps. We have a huge staircase, but it only took about 3 minutes to vacuum it. Sometimes I put off a job because I think it will take a long time when really it doesn't take long at all. Do you do that, too?
The bedrooms in our home have bi-fold closet doors. The dust really seems to attract to them so quickly! The brush attachment on the vacuum works great for these.
The door panels and crown molding also got a good cleaning. The molding seems to blend in with the walls which are still white. I haven't quite gotten into the painting mode yet. I need to get with it because the holidays will be here before we know it, and I will still have white walls (shrudder).
Now that my morning housekeeping tasks are completed, I can focus on some BIG plans for the rest of the day. I'll share all about it tomorrow. Here's a clue to get your wheels turning. :)
Have a great day! :)
