When Cleaning REALLY Happens


Let's get real. Most of the time I'm crafting. Or on the computer. Or chasing kids. Or collapsing on the couch after doing all of the above. I don't spend my days with a Magic Eraser in one hand, and a spray bottle containing a home-made concoction including vinegar and three different powders that most people just use for cooking. So the best way to ensure a clean house is to invite some folks over...
Speaking of which, I need to get a move on... I've got guests arriving in about 30 minutes...

My to-do list...


The holidays are a busy time - starting in Halloween with making costumes, and then Thanksgiving with the big dinner, and then shopping, wrapping, decorating, parties, and family until we ring in the new year. Add to that a dash of travel and a sprinkling of the flu, and you've got yourself a typical holiday season around here!

I hope you're finding time to check things off your to-do list - assuming you've found the time (and a pencil stub and back of an envelope) to write one. Good thing there are all those holiday cards being sent - lots of envelopes to write to-do lists on.

Unless you're absolutely desperate, don't write your to-do list on a tissue. That's always a bad idea during cold and flu season.
