Just suck it up. I don’t sweep much when I am serious about doing the floors. I vacuum. Hard wood, ceramic, linoleum, what-ev. A vacuum just does a better job of getting all that ‘mess’ out of the house. Just be careful depending on the kind of vacuum you have to not scratch your floors (it could happen I guess…another reason I LOVE tile).
Today has been an amazing nap day for the little guy in spite of his bad night last night… after waking every 1.5 hours several times last night, he finally slept for a ‘long stretch’ of 3 early this morning.
In any case… Here are some of the 10 minute activities I have managed today.
vaccum – 10 min
mop – 10 min
make split pea soup – 10 min (i used chorizo in this instead of a ham bone because it’s what i had).
snack and view – 10 min (make the kids an awesome homemade yogurt and applesauce ‘sundae’ with a sprinkle of sugar cereal on top while they watched 10 min of ‘Ancient Chinese Inventions’.)
fold laundry 2 x 10 min
1 blog post – 10 min
deal with naughty 2 year old- 10 minutes x ???
