Mother is coming over next Sunday, so I've got a week to get the place properly cleaned. Got to do the living room so that the dining table can be used. So much stuff hidden under the table that needs to be sorted out.

I've been ignoring the apartment today and caught up on some studying and shell coding.

- run the humidifier in the bedroom through the night to keep it over 35%
- run the air purifier in the livingroom to fight germs etc
- had the window open in the kitchen during dishes to air out the place
- did about 65% of the dishes

Only got tomorrow before I'm back at work so I'll have to get cleaning then.

Tomorrow's plan:

Finish the washing up
Do a load of washing
Scrub bathroom
Clear tables

Rest of week is maintenance and checking any places that she could look. Plus bedroom if time

I haven't started on the bathroom yet, but only the slow cooker left to wash up. If time I'll do it before work. Need to empty bathroom bin this morning and take rubbish out.

After work plan:

Clear the sofa

Yeah I had to stop yesterday with my wrist, just moving the slow cooker pot was bad enough, but it's next to the sink now so I'll do it layer.

I have been so distracted lately the housework has suffered big time.
Now I really need to pick a room and crack on.

- I turned on the air purifier on high in the livingroom for 5 minutes
- aired out the apartment for 15 to 20 minutes
- I put on the air purifier again but on 'auto' for the next few hours
- turned on the humidifier in the bedroom, it was high enough, so turned it off after 5 minutes
- watered the plants, gave them something extra to drown in.
- refreshed stock in the toilet room, making sure I have enough tp/ww for guests etc.
- it's unbelievable but there's 0 cutlery left to do as dishes, I actually 100% completed it for once.

The plan is to empty the humidifier and wipe it dry, then fresh filtered water, hopefully to fight potential bacteria buildup

And the plan is to fully empty the robot vacuum and properly scrub and clean it, switch mops, clean sensors, remove hairs, etc. and then let it do the whole apartment on auto mode + 'make an effort for the corners', and mop 2x on high. Hopefully this will help, and lets me ignore vacuuming manually for a bit, while I focus on making room in the little stock room where they are going to do some maintenance (guess ill move it to the bedroom without hurting my back, of course they're all heavy things). Oh, and I must not forget to see if I can wash one of the beddings.

- gathered up the dirty laundry
- finished all the dishes, 100% 100% 100% .. I'm never touching plates or cups again haha
- priority right now is livingroom table for visitors, and 3rd the stock room, so, I will make a start on both today and see how it goes
