A schedule!
Update: I found this at Target, and it smells wonderful! It testifies to help lift pet hair and remove odor, and the entire upstairs smells so much better, so I'm a new convert. I'll be buying boxes and boxes of this stuff. Also, a few comments suggested I shut off some of the rooms upstairs. Great idea! Done deal! After stripping and replacing sheets, dusting, vacuuming, the rooms are ready for guests and the doors are shut tight to keep out anyone with four legs. So thanks for the tips, there's hope! (Not that I'm really inviting anyone over anytime soon....)

After you guys left comments, and I went and checked out Anna at Pleasantview Schoolhouse (thank you, for sending me there!), here's what I came up with. I'm going to give it a try this week and see how it goes. Just having a plan makes me feel less overwhelmed.

I had an old schedule, in the to do pile for updating, and I feel better just having a plan in place. I won't tell you how seldom I normally wash bedding. It's my most hated job in the house. My sister irons her sheets and I rarely wash mine. I guess family trees branch out sometimes. My home has more levels and is larger than Anna's but then she has five kids at home, works and her property is larger, so if Anna can do it, it should be manageable for me. I did like the one commenter who told me just to hire it out!

So it's Tuesday, that means I'm cleaning the furry things out of the fridge, baking bread and something yummy for my sewing group who's coming tomorrow. Thanks for the help - bloggers are just the best when you need a helping hand!
