It's Friday, and we have company coming to stay for the weekend (it's becoming a happy trend).
What's not a happy trend is this: saving all my major housework for Friday. Mopping, vacuuming, bathrooms, two large loads of laundry. Oh yes, and today should also include a grocery run.
Maybe it's time to implement a cleaning schedule.
Here's my rough draft:
Monday: Min. Maintenance, Sweep/Mop, Laundry
Tuesday: Min. Maintenance, Sweep, Vacuum
Wednesday: Min. Maintenance, Sweep, Bathroom, Laundry
Thursday: Min. Maintenance, Sweep, Vacuum, Focus on one room (kitchen, etc.)
Friday: Min. Maintenance, Sweep, Laundry
The whole house has linoleum flooring, and Squishy is crawling, so sweeping should be a daily occurrence.
I've never really stuck to a cleaning schedule, so we'll see how this goes. I know I'll have to be flexible (things will come up!), but I'm curious to see if I can keep to this generally.
Do you have a cleaning schedule that works well for you?
Regardless of how clean my house ends up being this weekend, I'm looking forward to our time with Andrew's younger sister. Tomorrow morning I hope to go blueberry picking again, and of course we'll have scrumptious breakfasts, and maybe some time at the pool.
