I had to get on here to read the last post and see what it was I said I was going to do this week. Ha! It was a good list.
But....what I'm actually doing is cleaning "the master bedroom." Our house if over 40 years old and, even though there is a bathroom attached, our bedroom is not really much bigger than the other bedrooms. A little, but not much. I guess it actually is a master bedroom, but not anywhere near a master suite.
What it actually is, is dusty. And cluttered. And messy. And covered in laundry.
So of course I can't just get in there and clean it. NATURALLY, there had to be rearranging take place. Because that's so much easier and less time-consuming than just cleaning.
On a good note, I am employing The House That Cleans Itself lessons to my bedroom. I have placed a laundry basket behind the bathroom door where I can put my husband's mowing clothes. It's easier if they are separated from his regular clothes and he doesn't have to dig through his dresser to find them. Score one.
Also, we have a small shelf that sits right inside our bedroom door. I am using this as the new launch pad. You may remember that I had put a small white shelf by our entryway to use as a launch pad?
Well, the reality was that is was always full of stuff and it really looked awful. It's what you see when you are sitting on the couch. So we're moving the launch pad to our bedroom, where that kind of stuff actually belongs. We'll see how that goes. If we had a mudroom it would be nice, but they don't have mudrooms where we live.
Also, and I know this is really awful, I may have a permanent place to set the ironing board up. Do you put your ironing board away every time? Really? I don't. It ends up set up wherever we used it and I would love to be able to leave it up. My mom left her ironing board up for 25 years. I didn't even know you were supposed to put them away. What do you do with yours and also, where do you iron?
Because I actually don't know what other people do with their ironing.
