Cleaning Day

My cleaning ladies quit. I know this doesn’t sound like a big problem especially in light of what is happening on the world at this moment. It was a luxury that I was able to afford myself. It helped me to take something off my plate. I didn’t have to spend my entire weekend cleaning.

One of the small joys would be coming home after school on a cleaning day and inhaling the fresh lemony smell of cleaning products. The house always looked so good (for a short time anyways).

So in the midst of figuring out Connected Learning, I had to figure out how I was going to add cleaning to my already long list of to dos. My first step was to search exactly what needed to be cleaned in the house. I didn’t want to miss anything. Then I typed up a cleaning checklist. It had all the tasks that need to be done in the house by rooms. And by the way there are a lot of things that need to be cleaned.

Which brings us to today. I spent the better part of the days cleaning and scrubbing and disinfecting the first floor. Just the first floor. I will admit there was a feeling of satisfaction when I finished but boy was I tired. It’s a good thing that I had no plans tonight…LOL!

Plans for Sunday…the second floor and maybe (but probably not) the basement. Going forward…searching a way to breakdown the tasks over the week ….and trying to find new cleaning people.

One thought on “Cleaning Day

  1. It is a luxury, but worth it! I’ve started teaching college classes and justify cleaners as a fair trade for that time. There is something so satisfying about a clean house. Good luck with the second floor and the search for someone new!
