Monday, December 21, 2009 gift to my family

For Christmas this year I have come up with the perfect gift to give my family.

I am going to clean the house.

Since it's been quite awhile since I've done any real cleaning, I think this gift will be much appreciated. If I had thought about it sooner, I would have done the "12 cleaning days of Christmas" or something like that, but they're gonna have to just take what they can get :)

Today, I'm in the kitchen.

Here's my list:
- dishes done
- clean oven (so it doesn't light on fire everytime I cook something) done
- clean stovetop done
- clean toaster done
- clean inside of fridge done
- clean microwave done
- clean counters (with soap) done
- sweep & mop floor done
- deep clean sink done

Kid's list:
- feed dogs done
- trash done
- wipe stools & chairs done
- wipe floorboards done
- clean doorknobs done

Ok, so maybe it doesn't really count as my gift if I make the kids help me, but we've just started the whole chores + allowance thing, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for them. Plus, it helps me get it done.
