I feel like I should blog, even though I don’t have anything interesting to write. Sooooooooo, boring stuff it is!\
I made the best lasagna last night! And the worst brownies. They were fine when we had them about an hour and a half after taking them out of the oven but after they cooled, it was obvious they were severely undercooked. Boo.\
I am totally obsessed with my wood floors. Look how pretty they are. (This was taken the day after we had them installed, so things are still out of place.)
BUT! I totally have a love/hate relationship with my beautiful floors. First, there are probably over a hundred scratches and dents already. We’ve only had the floors for 4 months or so, waah. Second, after scrubbing the floors shiny, if you walk away and look back, you’ll see goopy smudges that were invisible before. Every angle shows different clean/dirty spots. Sigh. Third, even when I sweep and mop twice a day, they are never clean! Every piece of lint and fuzz shows up like a huge spotlight is trained on it. Boooooooo.\
Um, yea. That’s all I got. TTYL.
MOM’S CLEANING TIPS
Don’t mop your wood floors. If something sticky gets on them, just spot clean.
Lint and random fuzz problems. Leave tiny bits of fuzz, hair and lint alone for a day. This stuff magically migrates to the baseboards. No one notices the gunk on the baseboards for at least one month.
One more cleaning tip
Buck Owens “I got a Tiger by the Tail”
I use wood floor wet swiffers to clean, after I’ve dry-mopped. You saying I shouldn’t use those?
I have fond memories of that song, but have to go with Tapestry instead. It’s longer so I can get more done.
