Yesterday, my daughter was under the weather so I had a little extra practice of being in charge. They are traveling to Antigua for a business/pleasure trip tonight until next Wednesday night and Papa and I will be caring for the boys. I love time with my grands.
- Clean out your purse, diaper bag, totes, computer bag, backpack, or whatever you carry with you when you leave your home
- Clean out your car. Think of your car as a room on wheels. Make it a habit to not leave anything in your car that does not belong there. Containerize what does belong in your car—if you have books and toys to entertain your children when you are on the road, keep them in a tote. Store your maps in the pockets on the back of the seats. Take trash out of your car whenever you stop –at home or on the road. There are usually trash cans near the gas pumps at service stations and most stores have trash receptacles near the door. If you throw away credit card offers or any other papers that have sensitive information, tear that part of the paper into little tiny pieces.
• Vacuum the traffic areas in your home and while you have the vacuum cleaner out, give special attention to your Area of Focus—in your bathroom you may want to vacuum the blinds, the curtain or valance, and the corners.
While you are vacuuming this week, use the vacuum to get into the corners of the ceiling, get crumbs out of drawers, free the tops of your curtains of dust, and under the fridge and stove.
