Day 343 - Cleaning House

Friday, December 09, 2011

I mean literally cleaning house. We're off and out a couple of times this weekend, but I want to keep the house spiffy now that it's cleaned up - we tend to have 'drop ins' as much as guests responding to invitations. And when we're making the rounds I don't have time to keep after the day-to-day stuff, let alone spit'n'polish.

I've mentioned it here before - and no, this isn't a plug - that one of the teams I belong to is the Organized Life team. I'm not organized, which is why I joined the team: I'm always looking for pointers.

In addition, I have some books... check magazines now and then... and of course browse the internet. Yesterday I came across this article:


Like so many of these things I don't take the plan at face value. I use what works for me, change things around to suit myself, etc. But the idea that I can keep on top of basic-cleaning-maintenance in less than an hour daily is waaay appealing.

Other than that, I've spent the day immersed in genealogy. One of these days I should pursue an actual certificate and see if I can make a hobby pay.

Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    Interesting link. I need to get on top of my genealogy papers and then I might actually get on to finding out more about family history! Perhaps tomorrow . . ./

    I liked a hint I read online - buy some get well cards and sign them with some made up names. Set them out in a prominent place and when guests remark upon them, say - "Yes, I haven't been feeling well and I apologize that my house is not as neat as I'd like it to be, but I'm gradually catching up now that I'm feeling a little better. Please excuse the mess."
    emoticon That's my kind of housework hint!

    Great link, I'm going to bookmark and learn! I am not a housekeeper, by a long shot, and need all the help I can get.
