First of all, let me share with you that I’m guest-posting today for the lovely Becky over at Raising Loveliness!
Check out my post HERE, and make sure you check out the rest of the blog, too! One of my faves 🙂
So did you have a great weekend?! Ours was a bit busy, and I’m totally suffering for it now. (Well, my allergies are acting up. That probably has nothing to do with the weekend, but I’ll lay the blame there because I have nowhere else to place it! Ha!)
Accomplished on Friday:
- Baked, iced and decorated 60 made-from-scratch-icing-and-all Red Velvet Cupcakes. (I know, I’m nuts. Recipe for these here tomorrow!)
- Prepped everything we were in charge of bringing to my mother-in-law’s 50th birthday party
Accomplished on Saturday:
- Slept until 9:00 a.m. (YES, this is an accomplishment! I had been up into the wee hours of the morning all week long – and I’m NEVER able to sleep as late as 9:00, so I was pretty proud of myself)
- Had a wonderful celebration for my mother-in-law
- Ran some errands
- Caught up on programs we had missed throughout the week
- Tried to fend off my allergy attack
Accomplished on Sunday:
- Sunday School, Choir, Church
- TOOK A NAP (Gotta love a nap!)
- Did a little spot-cleaning
- Gave in to the allergy attack
- Took my dad to dinner for his birthday (yes, my dad’s birthday is the same day as my mother-in-law’s! Crazy!)
Since my husband now is off on Saturdays, as well (he used to have to work Saturdays) it feels like such a waste of our time together to do all the cleaning and yard work on Saturdays, when we could be doing something fun! Well, MORE fun. He likes doing the yard, and I like cleaning…but you know what I mean. So I’ve gone back to doing an item of cleaning each day of the week, so the house pretty much stays clean all week long. That’s nice! The thing is, I was looking for a cleaning schedule/printable so I could actually have something hanging on the fridge, and the search has disturbed me.
Is it just me, or wasn’t everyone taught to clean from the top down? (You dust first, then you do the floors after that, so that anything you dusted off of the furniture would be taken away with the rest of the stuff on the floor.) Right? Am I wrong? Because every printable I found had instructions of cleaning the floors one day and dusting the next? Isn’t that counterproductive? Maybe I’m finally losing my mind…
What did YOU do over the weekend? And for goodness sake, how do you clean your house?
