Holy Dooley!

Do you think by writing such a big list and looking at it is actually overwhelming to the point where nothing gets done?

Tomorrow for me:

Clean house
Maybe clean rental
Grocery shop




#3 EssentialBludger

Far out. Don't you find writing it like that makes it daunting? I'd want to do nothing at all if I had that to get through.

I've gotta say that for *me* that list would be so overwhelming that I would just hide under the bed.

I've got a busy week coming up: Parent info meeting at the school, 2 x parent teacher interviews, usual 3 days of work, I am desperate to clean out the girls' bedrooms (x 2) and the normal, get the groceries, school lunches, clean uniforms, make sure homework is done .....

That's enough for *me* !!

Yes it would be for me too.

In reality all it really is, is cleaning each room from top to bottom.  PBQ just likes to list every single job individually.

I much prefer to just have on my list

Clean lounge room
Clean bedrooms
etc
etc

It is not just cleaning either, for example Hayley's bedroom needs some painting done. Also everyone is different. And different parts of the rooms may get done on different days, depending on what else is happening.

Posted 17 February 2013 - 02:09 PM

Tomorrow I plan on booking a few appointments and going through my inbox and filing everything away

The rest of the week I plan on scrubbing down walls so that I can maybe, possibly beginning painting over the weekend and next weekend

Exactly. But like a pp, if I saw that list I would hide under my bed!

I don't make lists. I have a diary and on it tomorrow I have:

Housework (which will involve most of what's on PBQ's cleaning lists);
Dentist appt;
and that's pretty much it!

The rest of the day-to-day stuff just happens. And if I'm doing my housework tomorrow and I can't actually be bothered doing the skirtings, then I roll it over until another week! In actual fact, cleaning skirtings would probably be on my spring cleaning agenda!

skirtings? what are these household things called skirtings?  huh.gif unsure.gif

Posted 17 February 2013 - 02:23 PM

Long bits of painted wood to hide the join between the floor and the wall.

I vacuum mine with the soft brush bit attachment thingy on the vacuum cleaner when I remember too.

Once every couple of months they are wiped with a damp cloth as the vacuuming is underway.

people dust them? and wipe them?

Housework: I'm doing it wrong LOL

Ugh.

I'd cry if i had to list all the things i do in a day, let alone a week.

I dare say PBQ would be thanking her stars.

That being said, bloody hell PBQ you must have the cleanest house on EB!

I just don't have the time or
Energy to clean that much, or write those long
Lists.
I'd have the dishes washed, dried and put away by the time
You'd have types that
List.

I love lists but OP, that is full-on!

Reminds me why I work full-time - I could never do all that housework.  Although, I did wipe the skirtings in the 2 bathrooms over the weekend - can't abide dust.

Today: work (9 hours not including lunch), start 'diet', go home and feed DD and bath & bedtime routine.  Hope DH cooks dinner (he has assignment due today).  Bring washing in, do another load.  Do the dishes.  Prep DD's food for tomorrow.  Go for a walk with friends??  Get to bed so I manage more than 5 hours sleep. Oh and read some assignment drafts for DH.  If I get a chance, spray shower
Have my own study to do but must wait until DH finishes 2nd assignment next week.

#17 Beancat

Posted 18 February 2013 - 07:16 AM

wow OP, glad that list works for you original.gif
That list would do my head in.

Today
Dishwasher/kitchen
folding
bathroom
toilets
small supermarket shop
play with the kids/tidy up after them/oganisse what ever they need  (this one takes most of the day!)

#18 qak

Posted 18 February 2013 - 07:29 AM

That list is overwhelming to me.  I agree, I don't list every single thing, some of them are just itemising every single wipe (eg I would do "clean bathroom" which necessarily incorporates everything you have listed.)  Truthfully - I just don't clean as much as you do.

How long does it take to write all that up?  Do you have a master list you cut & paste from?

I have a master list I use, but something dont get done every clean.

I'm in the middle of a major declutter at the moment.  I've completely finished one bedroom and halved the contents of a bookcase in another.  I've been very ruthless biggrin.gif .

However, I'm doing some kitchen cupboards today and I'm wavering over some old placemats.  They are too stained to use for visitors but I like the pictures cry1.gif Help me be strong.
