Each evening after Maggie gives up the fight and finally succombs to sleep I sit and look at the ruins of my house. I clean up the living room, run the vacuum around the house, throw the toys back into the toy basket, and finally get the dinner dishes in the dishwasher. And then I'm done. Its all I can do to get the "public" areas of the house clean. You know, so that if somebody drops by it will "look" like I have it all under control.
Don't worry about the fact that the master bedroom looks like a prime candidate for an episode of TLC's Clean Sweep and the bathroom...well, we just keep the door closed and try not to think about how badly it needs a scrub down. And the basement... Dan's the only one who goes down there.
What I'd like to know is: How do you do it? Do you have a cleaning schedule where you do a different job each day? Do you clean up throughout the day? What works for you? You'd better get the comments comin' because I need a lot of help.
