First post of the year!

I'm sorry I've been absent, dear readers. Life has just been so busy for the holidays...the usual stuff. Plus, every time I get a chance to get on-line, it's only a small chance that's easily interrupted. So, I've had no chance to really blog.

Christmas was lovely this year. Hubby, Spike and I were really blessed by the gifts we received. Hubby got me the entire Bible on CD! Nothing replaces actually reading the Bible which I am doing, but hearing it read is something special, too. It's also great to help me stay exposed to the Truth more often.

I had all four of my impacted wisdom teeth removed. It still hurts. What an ordeal that was, but I'm healing well. They knocked me out cold for an hour....removed the teeth and sent me on my way with a perscription for hydrocodone. I never took any. I was in pain enough to need it, but I was too afraid of what it might do. I have a baby to care for! Hubby works and couldn't get time off, but he was a wonderful help when he was able to be home.

I realized at the first of this year that hubby and I are better off this year than we were last year. Granted, our debt is higher, but overall, things are better. We're healthier, happier, and in a better position for success. I look forward to this year. I'm also much more productive than I was before. I'm less likely to procrastinate and laze about. My faith and trust in God is stronger.

I'm even cleaning my kitchen floor daily! Which leads me to my poll: Do you mop your kitchen floors or clean them Cinderella-style on your hands and knees?

What do you use to clean your kitchen floors with?

How often do you clean your kitchen floors?

Do you have a rug in front of your sink or stove?

My answers: Cinderella, dishsoap and water, daily, no

God bless your new year!

What do you use to clean your kitchen floors with? Hot vinegar water

How often do you clean your kitchen floors?It get's swept several times per day, and spot mopped if needed. Other than that, it gets a major scrubbing once per week.

Do you have a rug in front of your sink or stove? Yes, both

Re: mopping kitchen floors- most of the time I feel like mopping just pushes the dirt around. However, I find that if I keep it swept daily (I have four children, so for me that means multiple times a day) and wipe up a spill as soon as it happens, then I can "get away" with mopping. But for the super duper clean, I have to vote for Cinderella-style :)

Cinderella, my scunci steamer or HOT water and bleach (for DEEP Cleaning), once a week...but it gets swept and spot mopped as needed, rug in front of the sink but not the stove :-)

Cinderella style once a month followed by a deep steam cleam.

Sweaping and spot clean severeal times a day.

No mats. I find it easier to just clean the tiles

1. Both. Let me explain. Once a month, I do Cinderell style, the rest of the time is regular mopping.

2. Pinesol or Murphy Oil

3. Twice a week.

4. No.
