Tuesday:) Toni’s Tip of the Day~Make Housework Fun

“If you have to clean your house anyway, be optimistic, make it fun, sing, dance, and play.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


The first thing I like to do when I clean the kitchen is sweep the floor. I have a magic broom that stands up all by itself. (So do you. Try it.) Now, if I could just get it to sweep the floor all by itself, that would be great and would really be magic. I know, some of you out there have a Roomba that sweeps your floor, but being of Hispanic heritage, I prefer to dance or do the Rumba when I sweep the floors.

Two wet towels and just dance along to the music. We used to do this when we were kids. That’s how Mom would get us to help wet mop the wood floors and have fun at the same time.

The reason I had to mop the floor In the first place was, when I was grabbing something from my over crowded pantry, I dropped a glass jar of Alfredo sauce. Instead of being upset, I chose to be optimistic and I said, A. Maybe it’s a sign from above that I really shouldn’t be eating Alfredo Sauce. B. Maybe it’s about time you cleaned your dirty kitchen floors. *You shouldn’t ignore signs from above. When I receive these signs, I like to say, “Lord, You don’t have to hit me upside the head!” But, sometimes He does.

See all the calories I saved? I said, “Thank you Lord for saving me from all those calories.” He said, “Prego!” (Italian for you’re welcome.) It was Prego sauce. See the sign? I didn’t even know God was Italian. Did you?
