A Typical Tuesday

By Jennifer Snyder
Many people have a hard time giving definition to what a "normal" day would look like and although each of us lead very different lives, this is one example of a typical Tuesday.  The relevance of this day-example is to show how a little bit of effort each day can keep most people's homes in good condition.
