As a mom of three children, including a needy three month old baby, I have learned to tidy and clean whenever I have a small burst of energy and two free hands...and meals are prepared and dishes washed. In reality, these bursts of energy do not happen very often.
In 20 Minutes or less I can...
mop one bathroom floor on my hands and knees.
fold a bit of laundry.
put away a bit of laundry.
sweep the kitchen floor.
scrub a toilet and wipe a sink.
This past week I emptied and emptied my drawer that holds my potholders, dish towels, dishcloths, and cloth napkins. It was horrendous.
