Around the home: cleaning
How do you clean your house?
Do you do it all in one day or do you allocate (schedule) chores to each day e.g. washing on Monday, ironing on Tuesday etc..
or do you do what I do.
I start making the beds and notice some dust, this leads to dusting (bed almost complete), I walk past the bathroom and decide the sink needs a scrub and so on. In the end everything is done, just not in any order or planning. I don’t think it takes me any longer this way, however it is full of surprises as I am never quite sure what I will do next!!! There is some cleaning I do daily — vacuuming the living areas of the house (cat hair is bad at the moment), washing dishes (I don’t own a dishwasher) and keeping the kitchen clean and tidy. However, even daily I will get side-tracked and go from washing dishes to cleaning window seals.
It might surprise you, but I am not fond of schedules, rosters or lists (if you are, here are one that looks quite good - it contains a schedule for everything) — if I know I have scheduled in washing on Monday I am likely to find a reason not to do it (I use to do this with homework when at school which got me into all sorts of problems), I like to wake up and not necessarily know what I might do — all a bit random I know!! However as an adult, I do have to schedule some things in e.g. going to work, buying the groceries, washing clothes, cooking meals so in fact my life is not completely random!!
Housework is something you do that nobody notices until you don't do it. ~Author Unknown
