This week’s Fun Monday post will be about chores. What is your least favorite chore? Vacuum get you down? Dust bunnies saying, “oh yeah, you and what army?” Is there a chore that you neglect doing it until the absolute last minute when guests arrive? Do you just pray they won’t look ‘there’? Are you going green with your cleaning? Top tips? If you have any ideas for anyone on Monday, post them in their comment box, because we all know that we LOVE comments!
This topic (which I hope you won’t hate, even if you don’t love it), was inspired by my hope to go through everything in my apartment before we move it to the new house. Closets that have boxes in them now? Yes, the boxes hopefully will be checked and things removed if we don’t want them! Junk drawer de-junked, clothes of EVERY season gone through and donated to charity, even kitchen stuff is getting a second look before it gets the ‘green light’ to go ‘HOME’ with us. This will serve as my post for Monday, too so keep reading and be sure to comment with helpful tips for me too!
My least favorite chore is ALL of them! Although I did realize I’d been staring at the same gravy spot for at least a month on the kitchen floor, so I guess maybe mopping wins? I vacuum up the chunks and ignore the splatter. Guess it’s a good thing that we’ll have brownish floors in our new place. Great for hiding messes I can’t take the time to clean up. To be fair, it is quite a hassle to mop the place, I have to make sure the baby is napping and will STAY asleep, I have to do the bathroom first, then the kitchen and then go back and take off the mopping strip from the swiffer and toss it and wash my hands in the bath. Any recommendations on making that easier would be a big help, I just have the ‘mop’ kind not the wetjet that squirts solution or anything. I’m considering changing to microfiber cloth instead of the swiffer. It would be washable and ‘green’. One REALLY COOL thing I did was finally call up a service organization in town and got rid of a tote full of baby shower gift bags, tissue paper, an unopened sample can of formula, diaper coupons, 2 sample diapers, and some free cup I got in a giveaway with a straw built in it. That would be a breeding ground at my house for green things! Anyway, I feel MUCH lighter with that gone, AND everyone loving me and my unborn baby and giving me gifts about 17 months ago was just the first step in the journey those bags would take. They will now be put to a better use, for women/children in need! Yeah!
So come on and play with us. Sign-up below! Special thanks to Pamela again for the use of Mister Linky. I’m putting it up ahead of time this time. Oh and feel free to scroll down and comment on my next post about decorating a nursery. I need help!
