Okay, with my 8 months preggo self I only have enough energy to usually do a couple of things. I'm going to clean the living room (fairly easy as it just needs to be picked up) and one of the following...

 

1) Clean off the bar
2) Clean out the Pack-n-Play
3) Wash sheets and mop floors


 

I just can't figure out which one I should do...so I'm looking for opinions! Which would you do? (Laundry is done as far as I know...there's probably clothing lurking in the Pack-n-Play)

What about washing the sheets, and while they're washing clean off the bar? Or set a timer for 5, 10, or 15 minutes for both the bar and the pack and play?

 

Or which option sounds the most appealing to you?

 

I'm the kind of person that can't relax if I feel like I haven't "done" everything. When I was pregnant I did a LOT of 15 minute cleaning sessions. If I was feeling exceptionally lazy, I'd lay down and watch a movie or TV show and when it was over, clean for 15, then read for a set amount of time, then clean for 15. That's just me. If I could relax without having everything clean, I would have done so haha

whoops, just noticed you have a toddler as well. What about throwing the sheets in the wash, and when he goes down for a nap mop really fast and then try to take a nap as well? :)

LOL Yeah, a toddler really throws a wrench in the cleaning mix! :)

 

I *thought* all the laundry was done and managed to scrounge up another loads worth...so the sheets will have to wait! I'll probably do the bar while he's awake (it's our "catch all hell" spot) because it's such an eyesore! IF he takes a nap today I'll sweep and mop...if not I'll clean waist up in the kitchen.

 

 

That's the plan anyway.

do the one that will change the feeling of your home the most, the one that will be the most satisfying to you right now.

That's definitely the bar. You see it as soon as you walk in the apartment. I can deal with dirty sheets another night (as gross as that sounds I'm sure)

doing the bar might give you an energy boost, so it's easier to get the other stuff done!  (today . . . or tomorrow . . . or whenever!)

I would clean off the bar, b/c it would drive me nutty to see a bunch of stuff on it (we have a long counter on the opposite side of the sink that is also the catch-all, and I feel soooo much better when it's nice and neat and pretty bare.
