Sprucin’ Up Saturday

Today is cleaning day around the Zoo. We take Saturday morning to scrub the bathrooms, vacuum the downstairs and scrub the kitchen floor. In addition we vacuum and dust the bedrooms. Over all it leads to a busy morning around the Zoo.

Last weekend I had to pick a room in which to do a deep clean since the children seem to have a need to keep their rooms a total disaster. We did a “room dump” of the boys’ room. This week we stayed on top of the boys and their room remained presentable and only took a few minutes to clean this morning.  I think the are getting the idea that a little cleaning each day, leads to less cleaning on Saturday.  At least I hope so!

This weekend’s room on the “dumping block” is the girls’ room. Thanks to a very messy teen and three extremely messy five year olds, it has become a disaster area. The eleven year olds contribute to the disaster by throwing blankets and pillows about the room. If you were to look into it, you would think a tornado blew through the room and would want to call the Red Cross for help.

Thankfully the normal Saturday cleaning up is now complete. Once lunch is over, the room dump begins. I promise to check in tomorrow.  If I don’t, please send out the search crews!

Have a wonderful day sprucin’ up your home today!
