Well, another tuesday is here and I must tidy up the house. The kicker this week is that dearest MIL is coming on saturday so i’ll be doing a bit more today and throughout the week. Because I just spring cleaned the whole house a few weeks ago, I don’t have much to do but there are a few things that I need to make sure are done so I don’t look like a lazy bum who lets her house go all dusty and dirty while she sits on her butt all day(shhhh! Don’t tell anyone!).
Because we use the kitchen and bathroom the most, I will have to clean those thoroughly and then tidy them up again on friday. Today, I’ll also clean the mirrors and hung pictures on the walls and dust the tops of all of these things. She won’t even care about that but since its something that I don’t have to re-do on friday, I’ll do it. I will also wash some sheets and towels today and have the sheets ready for me to change on friday as well. No need to change the schedule on that, but at least i’ll wash today. Another thing I have to conquer are my bevy of coupons that are on the dining room table and the couch’s end table that I use most frequently. When I spring cleaned, I had managed to organize these but alas, I’ve attained even more coupons and now have even more to organize. BUT it will get done today!
Since MIL won’t be in our bedroom, I won’t do too much in there besides changing the sheets and dusting the painting and TV. She is pretty easy-going, so I know that as long as it looks clean on the surface and it smells good, she’ll still tell me how good of a wife and mother I am(she loves to make me blush over the phone by saying this every time we talk). I love her to death and just want her to see that we are doing well and not to worry(like a true MIL she worries all the time).
Well, i’m off to clean! First assignment: those pesky coupons!
