How does this depict a baby-sitting swap, you ask? Come on, moms. When else are you able to singly experience the joy of turning a corner of nasty neglected piles into a shining (that's stretching it a bit), pile-free zone, but when your kids are out of the house?
I was overjoyed to turn over my 2 oldest children to a friend while my baby slept so I could do a bit of corner-cleaning. All I have to do in return is have her 2 kids over to play with mine for a couple hours. Which may be even easier than taking care of mine alone. Now, if you total the number of corners in my apartment that need attention and assume that by the time I finish them all I'll have to start here again, I could be doing corner-clean-up for the rest of my baby-sit-swapping days. I'd rather go out for a cup of tea, really. I guess that's why so many of my corners need work.
Do your corners and surfaces accumulate like ours do? What do you like to do with your time alone? Do you get any time alone?
In addition to tackling some of the scary corners of our home, I'm also in the process of reorganizing our stored baby and kids' clothes. What an ordeal. I plan to post a picture on that, eventually.
