RoseAnne and I were discussing proper cleaning of the house. She rated me as a 3 on the scale of 10 and herself as a 5 on the same scale for doing a good job of housekeeping (with 10 as NeatFreak and 1 as TotalSlob). I rated her as a 7 and myself as a 5.
The discussion continued with us setting up a standard of normal neatness. We are wondering what you all think the norm is.
On this scale, 1 is a total slob who never cleans up, while 10 spends all day cleaning.
We need a standard time between cleanups, using 1-multidaily, 2-daily, 3-bidaily, 4-weekly, 5-biweekly, 6-monthly, 7-yearly, 8-only when guests are coming, and 9-never (or under protest).
If enough of you answer, John could plot it on a graph, which RoseAnne or I could use in determining which is a five. (I'll send in RoseAnne and my answers next issue and separately.)
