#Mamavation Monday: Cleaning!

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 Continue Reading…

Breakfast Cookies, Cleaning and Fit Throwing

After lying around on various surfaces of my apartment since Sunday, I finally rocked out an awesome night as a housewife. Last night, I vacuumed; did a load of laundry; gave C a bath by myself (it’s difficult, guys!); washed dishes; cleaned all our CSA veggies; and Continue Reading…

When Did I Become So Domestic?

Hubster gave me a Swiffer Wet Jet for my birthday.  Why, you ask?  I asked for it.

Nesting, Nesting, Nesting…

…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 Continue Reading…

What Was I Thinking?!

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 Continue Reading…
