Today, however, I decided that I had to conquer the kitchen. It is now 2:48 and I started at 8:30 this morning. I didn't even touch the pantry - that will have to be tomorrow. Now, not all that time was spent cleaning - cleaning was done in between making lunch, transitioning to the big bed for nap time, blowing bubbles, playing basketball, etc. Today I decided that cleaning needed to be done instead of rest. So now we have a very clean kitchen and a tired momma.
Here is what I did:
- Dusted and washed the objects on top of the cabinets
- Cleaned out refrigerator and took all shelves/compartments out and washed them
- Wiped down the outside of the refrigerator
- Wiped down all appliances
- Cleaned out microwave
- Took care of excess clutter - mostly
- Washed down counter tops /table
- Washed trash can
- Scrubbed high chair
- Cleaned light fixture
- Swept and mopped floor
Here are my before pictures - I don't really know if you can tell a difference ... it's kinda a hard room to photograph.
Here are the after:
And I thought you might like to see a picture of my two helpers. That's right I said two. First is my dear son. He just figured out how to trigger a spray bottle. Here he is spraying the inside of the fridge. The second is the mop "pail" that we invested in a couple of weeks ago. When you have a whole floor that's tile, I gave up mopping on my hands and knees. This guy works wonders!
