These past 2+ months have been really challenging for me, and the state of our household definitely reflects that! We haven’t seen our tabletop for months, and mail kept piling on top of it. The bathroom wasn’t getting cleaned regularly, the stovetop was filthy and the place was in need of some serious dusting.
Thankfully, these past two weeks I’ve started to get a liiiittle more energy. This weekend I was able to clean the table!!!! I am so excited and relieved to look over and not see a towering mess that needs to be tended to. I vacuumed, dusted, cleaned the bathroom, and my wonderful Hubster cleaned the stovetop.
Things are starting to get back to normal around here! While I still need to listen to my body and take it easy, it’s nice to get more active even if it’s in my own home.
My goals for the week: Mop the tile floors and take C for some walks!

…how long can one nest?!
Hubster and I did some spring cleaning this weekend and organized a bunch of stuff that was sitting around on various surfaces of the apartment. Yesterday I did all of our laundry (I’ve been doing laundry every few days so it doesn’t get piled up). The cleaning continues today!
The humidifier is scrubbed clean, laundry is done, countertops are disinfected, bathroom is clean, floors are vacuumed, bed is made, shower is scrubbed out, and rugs are in the washing machine. I’m running out of things to clean!
The bathroom in our apartment has tile on part of the walls and a tile floor. The amount of dust that was starting to collect on the edges of the floor and the bottom part of the tile wall was really starting to get on my nerves. Of course, the greatest build-up was located in hard-to-reach corners and behind the toilet. I couldn’t take it anymore and decided to get on my hands and knees and scrub off all of the dust this afternoon.
After spending about 30 minutes scrubbing various parts of the walls and floor, I was finally finished and feeling really accomplished. Then I stood up…
The lower back spasms started in immediately. What was I thinking?! This will definitely be the last time that anyone will find me scrubbing the floor for a while.
I totally am rocking at homemaking so far today! I’m so proud Woke up at 10 (okay, so it was a bit late, but I’ve been SO tired lately!), started laundry, cleaned the bathroom, replied to emails, did the dishes, vacuumed and dusted all within two hours. BAM!
Trying to get into good habits of keeping things clean and organized so that I’m already in the routine of it before the baby arrives. I want to rock at this whole stay-at-home mom thing, particularly since I never expected I would be a SAHM.
What are some homemaking habits that you’re proudest of?
