cleaning house

In an effort to keep up with the housecleaning, I started cleaning rooms on a schedule a few years ago.  I've been able to keep to it for the most part, but there was just something missing...

Brian came across this article recently. I was intrigued (because there's only one thing I like better than a schedule and that's a list). Normally, my cleaning tasks take longer than the 20 minutes of the article. Of course, I wasn't cleaning every day, either. But, I decided to give this a shot, so I broke down the tasks, made a list, and recruited Brian and Jake to help me with the work.

So far, so good. We're less than a week into it and the house looks better already. Plus, it's not a chore to devote 15-20 minutes a day to cleaning, though we'll see how I feel about that once the weather is nice again.

I downloaded the list and will give it a try, but I think it will take me longer than 20 minutes to complete most of the tasks! Love, Mom
