...well, yesterday got away from me and I found myself unable to stick to my original cleaning plan!
Yesterday, I was supposed to tackle my Family Room, but I had a "to do list" a mile long for my job and so I was unable to clean before I went into work.
*side note* After being a stay-at-home mom for the past five years, I recently returned to the classroom...the Special Ed classroom, more commonly referred to as "the Resource Room". I am only working 12-hours a week...while my youngest is at preschool...but it is still an adjustment for everyone. (I plan to do a series of blog posts on getting yourself and school-age kiddos organized as a new working mom.)
Anyway, an after-school staff meeting delayed me even further and so today I need to double up on my Fall Clean-Up tasks. I don't want to get too far off track because if I do, I won't get it all accomplished before this weekend..and I promised to put up fall decorations with the kids!
So without further ado, here is my accountability list for getting the Family Room deep cleaned this morning. This afternoon, I will tackle Thursday's to-do list (laundry room and half-bath), which will leave my kitchen for tomorrow...my day off! :)
- Vacuum/dust Ceiling Fan
- Vacuum/dust Fireplace Mantle (including wall)
- Vacuum/dust Cold Air Return vent
- Take Down/Shake Out Window Treatments
- Vacuum/Dust Miniblind Slats
- Vacuum/Dust Baseboards
- Wash Windows (interior and exterior)
- Wipe Down/Polish Coffee Tables
- Organize Game Shelves (located in flat screen TV stand)
- Windex Flat Screen TV Stand Doors
- Vacuum Couch Cushions/Rotate Cushions
- Vacuum and Mop Hardwood Floors
- Move and Vacuum Area Rug
Any tips for cleaning your fireplace glass doors...in a real wood-burning fireplace? The fire hubby is a "real wood-burning fire" fanatic during the Fall and Winter months. I hate how dirty the glass doors get and how the hearth has become discolored.
Cute preschooler who didn't want to move for my photo session. :)
I hope you're having a fantastic Wednesday! I sure am enjoying my deep cleaned rooms and they're actually inspiring all of us in the family to pick up after ourselves in the other rooms. Win-Win!
