Tuesday's Scrub Day Schedule!

Because we failed the weekly house inspection, our freeday (out trip) becomes an 8 hour scrub day! Here's what we planned:
- exercises on the hour, every hour
- silence at work and during meals
- no watches to tell time (stop all house clocks and set them to 3:45pm and tell students, only 15 more minutes of scrubbing... only 15 more minutes... only 15... well, you get the idea)

6:00am - 7:00am
- bedroom emaculation
(make beds, fold clothes, dust, sweep, mop, floor rag)

7:00am - 8:00am
- room inspection & clean bedroom from scratch again
(it won't be good enough anyways!)

8:00am - 9:00am
- breakfast / clean up - cream of wheat
(no milk, no sugar in it, hard & sour oranges,
mango pieces for good cleaners)

9:00am - 12:00pm
- living room, dining room imacculated
- bad cleaners, rebellious students scrub
ONE tile for an hour without taking a knee

12:00pm - 1:00pm
- lunch / clean up - tuna noodle salad, crackers & sardines!

1:00pm - 4:00pm
- clean mudroom, jump, wash, rinse,
& hand-dry every dish in house
- machette grass (in pouring rain)
- emaculate House-mom's stove/oven

4:00pm - 6:00pm
- good cleaners get personal responsibility time
- bad cleaners scrub a tile again!

6:00pm - 7:00pm
- supper / clean up

7:00pm - 9:30pm
- personal responsibilities, journals, devos
- mark "target goal" scores for each student

9:30pm - bedtime
