Hi friends! I'm so glad you guys like my newly painted dining room makeover... I agree with that gray, like, a lot. Get it? "Agreeable Gray?" I'm so punny. It's the first of many changes going on around our little rental house... cough, cough... nursery makeover anyone?! Be sure to check out some sneak peeks over on my Instagram (@tenjuneblog).
Now that I'm officially three days into my new life as a stay-at-home mom... or more of a work part-time from home mom... I've decided that it's time to step up my Susie Homemaker skills. Since we've been married, mine and David's house cleaning strategy has been: oh crap, someone is coming over and our house is a mess, let's clean for the next two hours straight. Sound familiar?
But now, I'm getting to be super pregnant and about to have a teeny tiny baby monopolizing most of my time. Neither of those circumstances are exactly conducive to marathon cleaning sessions. We were blessed with some extra help cleaning house when HDawg was a newborn, but a house keeper just isn't in our budget right now. So, I decided to map out a strategy for me (and David) to clean our house on a daily basis. With a caveat: clean on a daily basis, but only during the week days. Momma doesn't want to clean on the weekends.
So, I racked my little brain, took some notes, organized my thoughts and decided on a schedule. Basically, I have a list of "daily" cleaning to-do's. This daily list includes one separate chore- the "daily chore" for each week day. One of those week days is for performing a "monthly chore." Am I making sense? Let me just show you!
Oh yes, I made a list. And typed it up. And made it look cute. Then printed it out. And taped it in my planner. Then realized I misspelled "vacuum." Oops. But it's a great list, right?!
Because I love you guys so much, I made you a downloadable PDF version! And I even corrected the spelling of "vacuum!" Boom-shocka-locka.
