Hockey Housekeeping

Any other hockey fans do this? On game night, instead of trying to get everything done before the game starts I do housework in spurts during commercial breaks.

Dishes to go in the dishwasher? No problem! I run down the stairs and pop a few in the dishwasher. Laundry? Run down the stairs to pop it in the washer or dryer. Bathrooms? I am living proof that you can clean the sink, toilet or mirror during a commercial break! Not all of them, but even one is pretty good. Wipe down the light switches and telephones? A breeze during commercials! Put together treat bags for the spawn's classmates? Heck I can do that during the game!

Vacuuming, cleaning the tub and making some food must wait for intermission but I'm amazed at how much I can get done during the games now.

My husband thinks this is hilarious but it breaks up the drudgery since the work is done a little bit at a time. Hey at least it gets done!

I'm all about timing runs down to the washer & dryer -- and if it's really important, I'll crank the volume and leave the door open so I can hear the commentators. Go Habs! ;)

I don't clean when there isn't something else for me to do. I certainly don't do it when there *is* something else to do. heheheh

I do the same thing! And you can really tell when the boys are off for a few days -- the dust bunnies multiply.
