It recently hit me that if I created a monthly deep cleaning calendar that I could avoid those long days of cleaning I hate so much.
I’m not going to put anything in Sundays.
We rest on Sundays and spend time with family and go to church.
At the end of the day we’ll straighten up for an easy start to the week.
We also don’t do deep cleaning on Saturdays. They’re for running around, hanging out, or house projects.
