Get your "clook" on!

Hello friends! I've missed you!

First, I am giddy at the moment because:

a) The kiddy is bathed and tucked away to sleep (she goes to bed at 6:30.... don't hate)
b) Dinner has been made and consumed
c) Bible reading is done for the day (more on this in a later post)
d) I received my new copy of Better Homes & Gardens today in the mail
e) I invented the "clooking" concept (I'll explain in a minute)
f) Bills have been paid
g) I still have a piece of Texas sheet cake left to eat (see previous post), along with Edy's Thin Mint ice cream
g) Thanks to clooking, I now have the next 2.5 hours to RELAX
(I will spend this time reclining on the couch, blogging, reading said BH&G magazine, occasionally
glancing at the movie husband is watching)

Aaah, life is good!

OK, since I know the suspense is killing you,
"clooking" defined:
Clooking is the act of combing cleaning with cooking. 
No, it does not entail drinking Windex.
What I mean is, you get your dinner in the oven, set the oven's timer, and 
clean, clean, clean
until the timer goes off.

But, when done in 20-30 minute increments, 
it suddenly seems less unbearable.
In fact, it almost feels like a little game.
How much can I get done in 20 minutes?, you find yourself wondering.

Tonight, I was able to:
Mop all the hard floor surfaces in our house. 
Clean the master bathroom.
And, I even talked husband into dusting!

(I'm a lucky girl!)

Now, I can sit back, relax, and enjoy the fact
that our little nest
is cleaner than it was 20 minutes ago.

Clooking is where it's at people.
Try it for yourself! 

Oh, and in case you were wondering what this domestic goddess
threw together for dinner tonight....

(That would be a frozen pizza. Cut me some slack, I worked all day. I can' t be Martha all the time!)

Happy nesting!

"Clooking" :) I like it! and will have to try this some time.
ps. My BH&G just came in the mail too. Went on line to find that cute purse on page 22 but they're ALREADY back ordered!... just thought I'd share with someone who has the magazine :)
