Happy Sunday! (Actually, it’s pretty late! Most of you probably won’t read this until Monday!) I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Sadie and I have had lots of mommy-daughter time together this weekend.
(about to go through the car wash)
(here comes the scary brush!!!)
We took a trip to visit Meredith and David yesterday (and Leenie and Poppy were there, too!) It was a nice one-night trip.
We had a delicious dinner, which everyone contributed to. I took dessert: strawberry shortcake.
The only bad part of the trip was our drive home which was yucky!
This weekend has been quite different from most weekends.
Usually, every weekend, I say this:
“I really need to clean up my house!”
But then the weekend comes, and I get REALLY good at avoiding the cleaning. I’ll do just about anything to avoid cleaning and organizing. But the thing is, the more you avoid it, the worse it gets. A while back, I found this cleaning schedule on Pinterest and I thought… if I could get my house clean, then I could follow this and I would not have to do marathon cleaning sessions before company comes.
But the thing is, you have to START with a clean house. And you’ve heard about my pattern.
But THIS weekend, I decided to really do it. (I was partially motivated by the fact that we are having our house measured for carpet tomorrow and I didn’t want strangers to see a really messy house.) But the main thing that motivated me was that I got these new cleaning products to try out, as a part of the Daily Buzz Moms Featured Publishers program. I received them this week and have been waiting to try them. I’ve seen the Green Works products in the store, but had never tried them. I have used Clorox for years, but I really hate the smell of bleach, and I have heard so many things about how bad bleach is for your body—just breathing in the fumes is awful. So I was excited to give these a try.
I love how fresh these smell! They made the whole house smell great! And I thought the all-purpose cleaner was really effective and worked great in the kitchen and the bathroom! The wipes also worked great on the fixtures—they looked like I polished them! The toilet cleaner worked great and smelled so much better than any toilet cleaner I have ever used.
So that got me on a roll. I just spent no less than 3 hours cleaning my bedrooom. It’s the room that never gets really cleaned, even when guests come over. It feels so good to have it clean!
I have actually learned that if I didn’t work, I think I could definitely keep my house clean. But I work. And as much as I would love to have a cleaning service, we’re trying to save money. So I am going to attempt to keep up with the schedule I mentioned above. Anyone else want to try it out with me?
Ok, now I need to sample one of these cupcakes Sadie helped me make. Good night!
