Getting ready for the weekend.

I am so tired. Being the first Friday of the month, today is my major cleaning day. The first Friday I really go all out with my house cleaning. Take the kitchen. I not only do the normal scrubbing of the counters, floor, and cabinet fronts, but I also clean the oven and take everything out of the refrigerator and scrub it clean. The bathrooms also get a special scrubbing. I know my wife will be impressed tonight when she gets home because the house looks great.

My normal cleaning schedule goes something like this… I divide the house into two parts. Part one is the kitchen, master bedroom and two bathrooms. Part two is the living room, dining room, laundry room, and 2 bedrooms. One week I will give the rooms in part one the major cleaning and the next week the rooms in part two get the major cleaning. Each week I vacuum all rooms and dust, but the real cleaning only takes place in the room for either part one or two. That way I am not spending all of my time cleaning. It is a system that works for me.

But today I spent about seven hours cleaning and I am really tired from it. It is just about time to change out of my maid uniform (my black and white one today), shower and get cleaned up before Linda gets home. I also will be starting dinner shortly.

I hate to get in the shower because I spent so much time scrubbing and polishing it today.

We may be having some friends over this weekend for dinner and now I know that the house will really look good.

So how was your day?

Dear Beverly.
My day was very nice. Thank you for asking. The day is always better when I read something new from you. I do not think I worked as hard as you but I did some laundry, dusted & vacuumed, cleaned the bathroom, and went to the market to buy stuff for a pasta dish I'm making tonight. Very cute photo.

The pasta dish sounds good. It is finally a nice day here so I am going to grill some steaks out on the patio tonight.
Thanks for writing.

Linda is lucky to have such a good little maid!
Do you think She’ll boast about it to your friends? Is any of your friends Wifeled?
My Friday was all work, didn’t leave until 23.00. Luckily the dishwashing was manageable. Last weekend I cut a lot of bushes in our backyard, and this morning I took the boughs and twigs to the city dump. Now I’m trying to relax, anxiously awaiting a conversation my Wife has demanded. Don’t know where this is heading.

My own was spent bloghopping then vacuuming before my oldest grandson came to spend the weekend. This is my wife's "off" weekend (every other one) so what we do remains to be seen, between her deciding and the incoming weather.

Hopefully we both get through that with all our shingles!

very nice, and great idea!

i do spend a lot of time cleaning Mistress's (She's my GirlFriend and Owner) house, but i think your lil routine-idea will really help me to get better results, for Her.

i do all those daily chores, mop, vacuum, dust, dishes, etc, but its a really good idea to clean each and every space in certain rooms once per week!
Thank you!
