I never have been.
I didn't learn how to growing up.
I don't have time to now.
I can do the basics like vacuuming and dusting and countertops and windows.
But to make it a daily/weekly habit is something far beyond my grasp.
It's not just that I do not have a set routine for doing it... it is that my very being doesn't work that way =)
So things like parsonage inspections get me all whipped up in a tizzy.
There are very good reasons for having these sorts of things. It is an opportunity for the people who actually own the house to come out and make sure that their property is being taken care of. It is an opportunity to figure out what needs general maintenence and repair (like our roof currently does). It is an opportunity for my husband and I as the residents to point out things that need some attention by physically showing what the problem is.
- update countertops with something that will not soak in stains. Kool-aid and off white laminate countertops make pink countertops. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser does wonders, but it also kind of takes the finish off. We don't need granite... but if you have people in a home with children (or messy cooks) something durable and easy to clean is best.
