There are some tasks on my "Daily" list of things to do that normally get done without too much trouble.
I'm long past my revulsion over doing dishes day in and day out. I just put my game face on and do them.
I make my bed without thought.
I straighten the living room.
But for some reason, there are a couple of things that I am either too tired, too annoyed or too ready to move on to other tasks to attend to.
The most glaring one is my kitchen floor.
Why I don't take a broom and swoop it around AT LEAST once a day is beyond me.
Because I absolutely love the feeling of a clean floor! I hate to crunch on old Cheerios, chips and Rice Chex. I abhor finding a slimy onion that leaped from my saute pan before reaching my plate. I cringe at the sticky orange juice spill that grabs at my shoe.
I just keep ignoring it in favor of spending more time blogging. Or running errands. Or paying bills. Or watching Rachael Ray.
Today's Small Thing is to run a broom over the kitchen floor.
So EASY! So Quick! So Gratifying!
You can vacuum it, if you prefer, but the point is to get rid of the crunchies.
And, if you REALLY want to make it barefoot-worthy, you can damp-mop it for some extra points. But hey, that is totally up to you. This is not about killing yourself for points, so use some discretion here.
POINTS: 40 for a simple kitchen sweep
BONUS POINTS: 40 for mopping
Now, just for fun, set a timer and see how long it actually takes to sweep and/or mop! Let us know....under 5 minutes? Under 2 minutes? I'm curious.....
