It’s almost December. And as such, I need to clean my house in preparation for Christmas.
Ideally, we want to decorate this weekend, and if we’re going to do that the house must be clean beforehand. If I could preserve it in a big glass bubble to keep it this way until the 24th I would, but living here would then become mildly difficult.
My schedule (in case any of you care, and I know you do) is:
Monday: Dining room and front windows (almost completely done, including washing and drying of curtains, except for one small cabinet I didn’t empty and organize)
Tuesday: Living room (about to tackle as soon as I eat some lunch and feed Ms. Junior Peanut. And I hate dusting, so this will be a joy.)
Wednesday: Bathroom (floor to ceiling)
Thursday: Kitchen (cleaning all surfaces, wiping cabinet fronts and walls, cleaning stove; haven’t decided if I’m going to gut the fridge yet or not, we’ll see)
Friday: All floors vacuumed and mopped
Of course, this won’t stay and I’ll need to clean the bathroom and floors again before the big day, but with a little luck (and threats of death) the main living areas should remain reasonably tidy. And all Christmas decorations and the tree can go up.
So if you’re looking for me, you’ll know where I am. Up to my elbows in glass cleaner, dusting cloths and furniture polish. I’ll be back eventually.
