Relaxation

I love long weekends.  The entire family has enjoyed visiting family for Thanksgiving and relaxing for the weekend.  Two great weekends rolled into one.  The best part of today – doing nothing.  absolutely nothing….  Well nothing planned anyway.  There is always laundry, I baked cookies, I baked 1/2 a birthday cake for my daughters 1/2 birthday, the bills paid, the dishes done.  While that seems like a long to do, it didn’t feel busy or rushed as it was all by choice (other than the laundry or dishes) and all done in my time frame.

What is your favorite part of long weekends?

Crazy Cleaning part 2

So in a spin off of last week’s magic eraser,  I took some lysol wipes and kept them at the top of the stairs.  When I went down – I wiped down the banister.  I also wiped down the light switches at the top and bottom of the stairs.   All are heavy traffic items that often get forgotten on cleaning.

crazy cleaning

So this week has been crazy busy, but then again what week isn’t?  I am so thankful my husband has had a few days off during the week.  While the kids are in school and I am working, he has been cleaning.  Cleaning inspires cleaning!

Mr.Clean® Magic Eraser® Original

so I got a magic eraser out and started wiping walls down.  I was amazed how many scuffs there were.  I carried the magic eraser around with me so I could wipe walls as I noticed them.

What did you clean this week?

Morning Rush

I don’t know about you, but our mornings can be a bit hairy.  Trying to get everyone up and dressed and fed and out the door to daycare, school and work is a lot to do.  I have been looking at ways to “simplify” our mornings.

  • make lunches the night before.  I started making lunches while the kids are watching their bedtime show.  I am then able to pack the lunches and not forget to put something in.  They are then in the fridge waiting to be put in the backpacks in the morning.
  • wipe down the counters.  After I make the lunches, I wipe down all the kitchen counters.  the kitchen is a little cleaner and I don’t wake up in the morning feeling like the kitchen is a mess.

What tips do you have to save time in the morning?
