This is my question:
How much time should I realistically expect to spend on each room in the focus each round?
For example, I'm doing my master bedroom this week.
I take approx 10-15 minutes in there just doing the basic vacuuming for weekly home blessing.
Then, I just timed myself and it took approx 45-50 minutes to do the "focus" vacuuming. Detailed, high places/low places, under/behind thing, furniture, etc.
This does NOT mean moving furniture, btw. Some idiot-barely-18-year-old girl
picked out this furniture and it is HUGE and heavy and has lots of crevices for dust to hide in. It is early American, and I still love it, even after 37 years, but I have to stand on something to get to the top of the dresser and the chest; there are louvered doors on everything, and it's just very hard to keep pristine.
Well, anyway, as I'm doing this vacuuming, I'm thinking, now this part is going to have to be done again of course, by the next round... so how do I EVER find time to do stuff like
-- wash (all) bedding, windows, curtains (* IF dh will let me -- the curtain rods are very precariously hanging there and he gets nervous when I start talking about taking down curtains!)
-- clean furniture (there are spots and smudges that I think I good polishing w/Old English would help)
-- clean out closet
-- declutter drawers
-- organize things
I just don't know how anyone ever fits in time to do all that needs to be done. If I kept up with everything, I'd never have time to EVER sit down at the computer.
