Wednesday: clobber the clutter and cobwebs
October 20, 2010 by Stephanie O'Dea
Wednesday is our early day—the kids are out 75 minutes earlier on Wednesdays than they normally are. I like this, because it keeps me moving in the morning, and we have more chill time in the afternoon. We also have NO sports or practices of any kind this day, which is such a wonderful blessing.
Yesterday was an icky day for me. By 10 am, I was pretty much wanting to just start over again. I’d lost (or thought I lost, I’m still not quite sure) 20k email addresses through feedburner, the baby refused to be put down, the phone kept ringing with campaign/prop calls, I dropped a box of rice-krispie-type cereal upside down and the pieces scattered all through the kitchen and dining area, and I stepped in a puddle of water in the bathroom in my socks.
I hate wet socks.
PROM the immediate living areas—get rid of the paper piles, the stacks of books, the random toys, etc.
One cannot manage too many affairs: like pumpkins in the water, one pops up while you try to hold down the other.
