Her days were filled with daily walks on the family farm, admiring the breathtaking vista, listening to the birds chirp, gathering vegetables from the garden, plucking fruit from the trees, creating homemade meals for her family with ingredients right from the family farm. Wild Leek and Potato Soup, Butternut Squash Soup, Boeuf Bourguignon, or perhaps a treat of Mille Feuille would make her family happy. Throw in a few hours of work on campaigns and projects, meeting a few deadlines here and there and perhaps some conference calls with clients (because a Mama’s gotta bring in the dough too), and we’ll call it a day.
Nope. There’s still housework to be done.
Oh, the dreaded housework.
I don’t know about other moms out there, but there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. I’ve learned to be less hard on myself and I am trying to teach myself that whatever is not completed, cleaned, washed, put away today will be there in the morning. That is a very difficult thing to learn and accept.
Living in an old farm house has many positives. Our house is welcoming, cozy, and has a lot of character. There’s something so inviting about a quaint, rustic home. Okay, I’d also love to renovate since the house does need a lot of work! The one major drawback of living in an old farm house is the dust. I am forever sweeping, vacuuming, and dusting. I’m talking an every day job to keep on top of things. Honestly, what busy mom has time to dust every day though? If I can find a way to not have to do all that extra work, I would readily do whatever it takes to not have to break my back and waste hours of my time just to vacuum, sweep, and dust every day. It’s got to be one of most hated household chores.
No matter how much or how often I clean, my house is always a disaster. Of course, the old floors don’t help matters. Have I mentioned how much I hate our floors? ACK!!!
Well, I’ve recently been introduced to a new Swiffer that is said to take out stains that the others leave behind. Wooooot! Dustpans, broomsticks and mops beware! There’s no going back now that this baby is here!
The NEW Swiffer BISSELL SteamBoost, is a steam mop that deeply penetrates dirt and helps remove messes mops can’t clean. Simply fill it with water, attach a Steam Pad and plug it in! No other solutions are needed- which is perfect for those sensitive to cleaning products.
As a #PGMom, I was given the opportunity to try out the Swiffer BISSELL SteamBoost. It is so easy to use – Even my 4 year old wanted to clean the floors! I’m not going to say no to that! Let’s hope her love of steam cleaning floors never wanes! Seriously, there was no prompting or bribing! She did it all on her own accord!
Do you want to try the Swiffer BISSELL SteamBoost yourself? One lucky Life on Manitoulin reader will receive a Swiffer BISSELL SteamBoost of their own!
