broom-womanToday’s Chore List states that it’s time to clean the bathroom(s). This particular group of chores comes around each week on Thursdays in my chore rotation. The problem is that my bathroom is so cluttered at the moment, I wouldn’t be able to do the Thursday bathroom chores.

The list for today looks like this:

Thursday’s Chores:

Clean bathroom(s) –

[ ] toilet
[ ] sink
[ ] tub
[ ] floors (sweep or vacuum)
[ ] cupboards/cabinets
[ ] change towels

The main bathroom will be relatively easy to clean, because it’s the bathroom guests use so I try to keep it presentable. But the bathroom off my bedroom that nobody else sees? Oh, geez. I won’t be showing BEFORE photos of this project because it’s really just too embarrassing.

As for my bathroom, I can’t really clean my sink yet because the clutter on the counter top is too much to work around. I can’t sweep the floors because the clutter (yesterday’s clothes and whatever else ended up on the floor) is there. I don’t even want to talk about the cupboards, closet, and cabinets.


So today’s official cleaning project is going to be the Master Bath. Egad. Wish me luck! This is a scary one. I’m going to be brave and dive in and see where it gets me.

I know if I can get it all done today, I will smile every time I walk into my bathroom instead of feeling like I want to close my eyes. Smiling is a reward worth pursuing. And next week when bathrooms rotate back into the Chore List, it will be much simpler.

Onward and upward!
