Is it just me? Is there anyone else out there that feels the need to rearrange and revamp every time they clean house? It's just me and my husband that live here and we both are good and keeping things in order. I do cleaning a couple of different ways.
When I deep down clean, it usually ends up in a total room rearrangement and then there are days I spot clean run through gathering the miscellaneous items that seem to have grown legs and move themselves about the house (that could also be my husband Hmmm) and do a load or two of laundry.
There are two days a week that I totally clean: Tuesdays and Fridays or Mondays and Thursdays. This depends on my schedule for the week with clients, errands and the unexpected. I like to clean good one day after the weekend freshen up, change sheets, clean bathrooms, vacuum etc . . .and one day before so that the house is yummy and cozy for the weekend and we can kick back and enjoy!
Now last Thursday, I did an upstairs DEEP clean, I mean one room led to another in a quick hurry. I had one of those rooms like Kim from Savvy Southern Style shared one time (which I will post another time), you know that room where it just goes because you can. It wasn't always this way, but since March of this year, when I had re-done and moved my office from the third floor to the second, I had also planned to re-paint and re-new our one guest room/dressing room (where all my clothes hang out along with all my lovelies). In the meantime because this re-design is not happening in a quick hurry, I decided that the room needed to be a real room again and not in home storage.
So anyway Thursday, I took EVERYTHING out of the room (interesting) and if that wasn't enough I decided to somewhat empty my hall closet as well because I did not have quite enough stuff in the hall to step over. I sorted, threw away and donated quite a lot to Goodwill.
These two rooms needed a Good Clean! From there I cleaned the bathroom, our room and on downstairs to vacuum, dust, revamp and do a little Fall decor. So here I am today cleaning, rearranging furniture and thinking to myself; am I the only one that finds it necessary to go through this every time I clean? Seriously why can't I just enjoy things the way they are and spend more time relaxing??
Any thoughts? I would love to hear!
Yes, I even rearranged the family room yesterday. See what I mean?????
