Can you believe it is Making Your Home Sing Monday again already? This time last week I was eagerly awaiting guests from across the country. The weekend had been spent getting the house in order so we'd have little to no housework during the week. Fast forward one week and...nothing much has been done since last weekend! Every room in my house needs to be vacuumed and dusted, bathrooms need to be scrubbed, floors need to be swept and mopped, menus need to be planned, the budget needs to be done for May, etc., etc., etc.
To put it bluntly, it is a back-to-work Monday for all of us here at the Nagle5 house. To that end, this week, our household will be cheerfully singing the song "Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work we go!" as we go about putting everything back in order. We had a terrific time with our guests, we hosted Game Night on Saturday (to maintain our regular schedule) and we gave ourselves some downtime, but the tasks await.
All three bathrooms need to be properly cleaned (seriously!).
The kitchen, laundry room, and family room floors need to be swept and mopped.
The entire house must be dusted.
Buttercup's sheets need to be changed (I got ours and Valiant's done on Saturday).
I need to get the kids back on track with schooling...we didn't do a very good job last week, despite our good intentions.
Finally, if all goes well, I'd like to get the carpets cleaned (we have one of those Bissell upright carpet cleaners), but the weather doesn't seem to be cooperating, so we'll see. Also, the family room windows have an entire winter of dog slobber on them. Again, if the weather holds, I'll be out under the deck with vinegar and water and a lot of rags.
So, if you see a family of very tall dwarfs singing Hi-Ho in Eastern Washington, you'll know who it is!
