DO YOU HAVE A WEEKLY
I could REALLY use your input!
I've been retired for almost 3 1/2 yrs. and I can't seem to find a cleaning schedule that works efficiently. I have to admit, I was spoiled because when I was working, I had a housekeeper that began with monthly cleaning, then every 2 weeks, and toward the end she was coming weekly. Therefore, I only did the laundry, cooking, and straightening up. The more labor intensive chores were thankfully done by two of the sweetest friends on the planet. They became friends over the years and I never had to feel afraid to give them a key to my house.
Now that I'm retired, I can't really justify paying someone to clean my house since I'm home every day and the biggest reason of all ... my retirement pay is significantly less than what I was paid on my teaching salary.
I need to put my Big Grandmama Panties on and Relearn how to "keep house" as my mother used to say.
I want a weekly chore schedule that will work for me as well as blend in with my babysitting responsibilities.
I like to do all my wash plus change sheets on Monday. I clean my downstairs bathroom on Mon. as well but am flexible on everything but Mon. wash. From there, it gets all "Wonky"...my new favorite word!
I have 3 bathrooms, upstairs has 4 bedrooms, downstairs has a half bath with large kitchen, den, and dining room. I need to work in sweeping porches since I'm a little OCD about my front porch looking good.
I want to do most of my chores in the morning to leave time for sewing while Sidekick naps from 1-3:30.
I don't set aside time to iron...my method is to iron as needed.
Help, me PLEASE
