I’ve been having to do a lot more cleaning this year than usual.
I think it’s because my kids have been playing a lot of outdoor sports and dragging in a lot of dirt.
We also have two dogs that come in and out of the backyard throughout the day. It’s inevitable that I’m going to have a dirty house if I don’t keep it clean on a daily basis. This is an ongoing process for me and always an ongoing struggle. We split up chores when I was a kid and I always hated cleaning indoors. I prefer doing outdoor work with my dad such as raking leaves or mowing the lawn. It’s bad to do that with your kids because then you’ve got children growing up only with a limited set of skills. So I’ve had to learn to clean since becoming an adult. A lot of it means ongoing maintenance too. Like changing the filters in my ear pierced for instance. I have to remember to do this at least once every 3 to 6 months because they get clogged with dust. Once the air purifiers get clogged with dust they quit working as well. Now my air purifiers are finally pulling contaminants out of my indoor air again. The old filters were clogged way past the point that they should have been. That’s my fault for not checking the air purifier filter sooner and letting them get as bad as they got. Each time I need to buy some air purifier filters and have them on hand for the next time I need to change them out.
