Like most teacher moms and dads, we dream of the summers where we can shift our attention from school to home. There are SoooOOooooo many things that we want to accomplish over the summer. This summer my "to do" list is quite daunting, but it is summer! We're going to get it done and have fun too! Right?!
This first week of summer, I hit the ground running. My nephew has been with us this week so cousins can go to camp together. It has been an awesome and busy week! So much fun and so many memories made! I am so glad that we planned this week and so thankful for the opportunity to make it happen! But, I'm looking around my house and man, has it been on the back burner...again.
This morning as I was getting ready to take a shower and begin the last day of camp shuttling/errands/etc for the week, I had a thought. What if I could clean my bathtub while I took a shower? Hmmm, maybeeeee... I grabbed my trusty magic eraser and set about giving it a go. In about 25 minutes I was dressed and ready to go...and my bathtub was clean too!
I'm sure that there are many out there that already do this or something similar, but WOW! I've always thought of cleaning the bathroom as something that I just have to set aside the time to do all at once. That's the way we did it growing up. It got me to thinking...Added to my "to do" list: figure out ways to incorporate bathroom cleaning into my regular bathroom activities.
How do you clean your bathroom? Got any time saving tips?!

I imagined that I would be like June Cleaver, only work outside the house and maybe get caught vacuuming in heels and pearls a little less often. Turns out I'm a little more like a mix of June Cleaver and Frankie Heck...most days it feels like I've got more Frankie going on than June. I'm definitely a work in progress. :)
