A clean sink
My apartment is generally a mess. I figured that being a stay at home spouse *coughunemployedcough* would change all that. Somehow, I thought I'd go all fab 50s housewife. Well, it's July and my apartment is really not any better. Hmmmm...... So, when a friend suggested flylady.net, I thought I'd look into it.
This site helps you organize your cleaning schedule, develop good habits and keep your home in guest ready condition. It looks fairly complicated but they do have a handy 31 day beginner ease into things course which I started today.
The task for day 1 was to clean my sink. I thought it was a rather odd place to start, but after soaking in bleach water for 2 hours (1 hour for each side), cleaning, scrubbing, shining and lots of rinsing, I had a clean sink. And for the first time in forever, there were no dishes in it! (And there won't be anymore if things go according to plan. They hide in a bucket under the sink.) And it really feels awesome each time I go into my kitchen and see my clean, shiny, dish free sink. So maybe this lady knows what she's talking about.
The rest of my day was also productive. I biked 6 miles, got a crafty UFO almost finished, made dinner, cleaned the living room enough to sew in and went grocery shopping. Yay!
And my sink is clean. :)
