Cleaning Schedule

I have been trying to organize my life so it does not feel so hectic. Ever since the wedding I feel like I don't have a schedule for doing things. The whole merging two households into one is not easy. I have lived with many roommates over the years but you still always have your room with your things. You aren't combining bank accounts and sharing closets! I sometimes wonder if David should have been a girl because he has more watches and shoes than I!! I still love him though! :)

Anyways, I figured I should start with one area of our life and decided it should be cleaning. It is always much easier if you do a little bit of cleaning each day, so it does not build up to be such a big mess. If your like me when its a large thing to do I put it off. I say to myself that I will do it tomorrow and then I don't. One way to combat that was to write up a cleaning schedule and stick to it. I already have some what of a schedule, but there are certain items that I need to do more regularly. Since Ella sheds so much, I have to vacuum 3 times a week or there is cat hair every where. The chore that I dislike the most and do seldom is laundry, probably because it takes the longest. So, here is my cleaning schedule that I made for each week including monthly items that need to be cleaned. Hopefully I won't over do and then I will look the women from the picture above! If anyone has any suggestions or items I should add let me know. I always open to good advice!

^ Better yet, tell David to actually HELP you around the house. Equal opportunity husbands/wives rule!
