A Time To Mop
One of my pet peeves is dirty floors. I cannot stand having my shoes stick to the floor! Last year during this week between Christmas and New Year's, I cleaned up seven soda pop spills. The sugar content of soda always requires mopping and re-mopping. Soda has been banned from my house ever since. Dirt tracked in bugs me too, but I have come to accept that it is just part of family life. I chose tile that would hide dirt, but wet footprints from winter boots are still pretty obvious. Worse than a dirty floor is a dirty floor five minutes after mopping it. Tonight, I have figured out the secret to my happiness--pay attention Kent! I swept the floors after dinner while the kids watched a movie, and then mopped while the children were falling asleep. I was able to monitor the children's nighttime escapades, but more importantly...MY FLOORS WILL STAY CLEAN FOR AT LEAST ELEVEN HOURS! (while everyone sleeps). Now I can rest well!
