Celebrating Wonderful Wednesday
April 7th is No Housework Day
I really haven’t done housework on a Wednesday for a long long time anyway. Since I went back to work almost 30 years ago most of my chores around the house have been done on Saturdays.
I can remember that when I was home when my children were little I usually had a special day that I did things. I liked to do the laundry on Mondays, the ironing on Tuesdays, the house cleaning on Thursdays and the grocery shopping on Fridays. I really don’t remember what I did on Wednesdays. I always baked on Saturdays and then on Sundays it was fun day. After church and our Sunday meal we usually did something together as a family.
Maybe now that I won’t have to go off to work each day I’ll get back into some kind of routine. It’s going to be so different for me that I’m sure it will take awhile to work something like that out.
Vacuuming the carpets, mopping the floors, dusting furniture, cleaning the bathroom and kitchen are all things that really don’t need to be done more than once a week at my house. Sometimes I skip a week as there is only me here and I don’t make for much dirt. The biggest thing I have to do is pick up my clutter. I’m bad a leaving catalogs and magazines here and there and my desk always has piles on it. No they are not piles of bills, but things I intend to read later or that should be filed away.
I’d like to imagine a spic and span spotless house now that I’ll have so much time on my hands, but I do have lots of other things to do, so I know that it’s not going to be a top priority at all.
I hope your Wednesday is a wonderful one!
