Monday - Kitchen

I used to have a pretty decent housecleaning schedule. For some reason, I can't find the paper copy and I never typed it out on the computer. I guess I'll have to recreate it!

Mondays are Kitchen days. I still need to work out which tasks are weekly vs. monthly, but I started deep cleaning the kitchen this morning. I pulled everything out of the cupboards on one side of the kitchen, consolidated spices and bags of flour, threw away the outdated items, and wiped down the shelves and cupboard doors. That side of the kitchen looks really good now! Next Monday I will tackle the other side of the kitchen.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) I'm going to designate as Dining/Living room day. Our game shelves and my husband's desk are still pristine, which he is extremely happy about. My desk, on the other hand, is a huge mess. My main project tomorrow is going to be getting rid of all the clutter on my desk, throwing things out as necessary, filing the rest of the paperwork, and stacking the books neatly. I will also dust, vacuum, and clean the patio doors.

Hubby is at a client site right now, so I'm going to relax on the couch and try to finish The Well-Trained Mind. I'm really enjoying the book but I am ready to move on to something else! If I can get hubby's computer to work properly, I'll play a classical cd while reading. If not, I guess I'll have to use my laptop to play something.

Hopefully hubby's work goes quickly so we're not eating a late dinner. If it's late, oh well! Sub sandwiches are great at any hour.

I would love to have a cleaning schedule, but I could never remember it! I'd love to hear more about yours!

I will post about it as I figure out what it was! I hope that by the end of the week I will have a working schedule for the entire apartment. :)

Wow! Sounds like you are getting "down to business" with your cleaning schedule. Good for you. I've got my pantry and garage freezer that really need to be organized and cleaned before the year is up.
