|I'm not going to need to access my kitchen at all today, right?|
10:00 AM - I ask as I sweep, "What is the purpose of this room?" The answers: family, rest, haven. I was going to add "play", but I think, with the open concept tiny house, play is best kept to the playroom in the basement, for the most part.
10:35 AM - Oh yeah...I should probably have some breakfast.
10:45 AM - We interrupt this program to bring you a 15 minute bathroom cleaning challenge from a dear friend. Set your timer...GO! Even though I was already deep in the middle of the living room mess, I said yes to the challenge when my friend called. In 15 minutes, I was able to get the entire half-bathroom clean, like on hands and knees scrubbing the grout clean.
|If you're going to clean, you may as well CLEAN, right?|
1:24 PM - Back home and a little overwhelmed by the mess I've made. 4-year-old N is playing ball-hockey in the empty living room while I put away the groceries. I ask him, "Do you want a sandwich?"
He answers, "Yeah. Wif just da dark red stuff on it."
"You mean jam?"
"Yes. Why do dey call it jam?"
Why do they, indeed?
|And this is how you move heavy furniture without help on a scratch-prone floor.|
4:00 PM - I wish I had a bigger rug that I liked. What can I sell so that I can get one? Oh, and a plug in the middle of the floor (or at least a 3-prong extension cord).
4:40 PM - It's getting dark...I should probably put the curtains back up. And what's for supper? Who's doing laundry?
5:00 PM - As it stands now, the living room is in order, and the kitchen is a mess. A frozen lasagna is in the oven. My husband gets home in half an hour. Can I get everything done? Tune in next time . . .
