i really like to use disinfectant wipes on my counter tops at least once a day.
i have all sorts of cleaner underneath my sink, but i just LOVE (not marry love, just regular love) the wipes. they are convenient and they smell good. i especially like using them on caleb’s highchair. i just have my system down and the wipes work for me, k?
and then my entire system falls apart when i run out.
we could be out of food or toiletries, but if we are out of those wipes i immediately write it down on ‘the list’ and schedule a trip to the grocery store.
this time was no different. well, it was different, because i kept forgetting to write it down. which is not like me…even though i have a bad case of mombrain…i have a system and i try to stick to it, because of said mombrain, but i didn’t write it down this time! which is so frustrating. the system is: write it down when you throw it away. easy. duh. DO IT! ugh.
anyway, a few days later when i actually make it to the grocery store i forget the wipes because i, again, forgot to write it down. at least i got food this time.
later on that same day i began to start cleaning up the house and dreaded having to use a spray bottle *gasp* to clean the counter tops and high chair. i finished my chores and realized it wasn’t so bad after all…just a few extra steps in my system that i could adjust to.
and then i opened the fridge and put the spray bottle cleaner by the milk. and then i shut the fridge.
i reopened the refrigerator door and as i chuckled to myself i thought, “now that’s a mombrain moment…putting the cleaner in the fridge…by the milk…i could see myself mistaking that for juice…maybe i should blog about this.”
and as i reached into the grab the spray bottle cleaner i recognized something else.
the disinfectant wipes container.
in the fridge. next to the milk.
which i didn’t remember to throw away.
so i didn’t remember to write it on ‘the list’.
so i’m really not that crazy after all.
see, i have a system and it works for me.
