DearDaughter2 is now 3 months old, actually 4 months old tomorrow and the chaos is finally starting to settle and order is finally returning back to our home. Now that DearDaughter2 is finally on a good sleeping routine I can think about cleaning and organizing my home again.
2 months ago we had major construction work done in our home and dust was every where. Every week on my task list, I have the intention of cleaning out all the dust created from the construction, but I always keep it at the bottom of the priority list and then I never get to it.
Therefore, I developed a plan to clean and organize my home in bite sized portions and since I employed my husband's help, Tuesdays have become the days that I've been putting that time aside to tackle those tasks that stay at the bottom of the list. Well, I remember seeing "Tackle it Tuesday" banners on others' blogs and I have finally decided to join the band wagon.
You can see the actual line between "clean" and "dirty"
Dust layer on stereo system
My first tackle was a simple one, but it needed to get done. The corners behind my stereo system, couch, and computer were covered in dust from the construction work. I couldn't believe we were living with such "filth". I did keep the touchable surfaces wiped down, but I needed to do these "under the carpet" areas. It took me a total of 2 hours for the whole project and 2 Swiffer dusters. I had to move everything to get to those areas. I even moved our whole computer system and when I plugged everything back in, the sound stopped working. Boy, did that turn into a whole different project, just figuring out how to get the sound back. Well, everything worked out and I feel so RELIEVED, like a huge burden off my shoulders and a HUGE task off my to do list!!! Just doing that made my home seem so much cleaner!
I didn't take any after pictures...It does look 1000% better...Trust me :)
