THE PLAN — Day 1
Today is the first day of MY cleaning plan — an altered form of a popular tutorial on cleaning. I am taking one area each day and cleaning — each room should be completed once a week and, in my book, that is clean enough. Today I started with my bedroom and bathroom. It has taken me about four hours but that four hours included, mopping, vacuuming, dusting, gathering laundry, changing sheets, cleaning out from under my vanity and part of the closet. It also included cleaning the tub which is jetted and requires running for 15 minutes with a mixture of bleach/dishwasher detergent and hot water. It is then rinsed with plain water by filling the tub again and running for another 15 minutes. So.. I don’t know if four hours is good but it is what it is. I took several breaks — just can’t focus on drudgery very well — but, now I am done and I can reward myself with some fun time — I think it will be reading time while I have some lunch.
So, tomorrow — the living area and kitchen/dining. That is the largest area in the house so it might take a while but, maybe not considering it doesn’t involve laundry and such. Hmm..I feel accomplished — sort of.
