My home is an unmitigated disaster. I haven't blogged in several weeks, the dishes are terrible and we ate out almost every night in the last week. I am so sick of it.
I switched from working full time to only doing relief work. For two weeks I was only working a few days a week and my home sparkled. Two weeks I worked Thursday and Friday and came down with a cold Saturday which I couldn't shake. I worked full time all of last week and the house turned from a thing of beauty to a nightmare. Added to the confusion the in-laws have moved into town into a much smaller apartment and have given us a lot of stuff. I am so sick of putting out fires. I spent an hour this morning cleaning up the bedroom. An hour for just one room! This has got to stop.
I am trying the Flylady cleaning schedule. She slowly weans you to cleaning everyday. In the past I have tried to do a little cleaning every day, but my perfectionist nature takes over. I end up spending several hours cleaning and am too exhausted the next day to even think of it.
|Must clean everything!|
|Meh netflix is looking pretty good right now.|
I love her saying; housework done improperly is a blessing for your home. Flylady has you slowly add a little more onto your plate each day so you don't become overwhelmed.
You start with just cleaning your sink every day.
I LOVE this idea. The dirty dishes are always piling up, I look at them and know I have to do them before I can start on dinner and put it off to the point that we eat out. Eating out is a terrible waste of money.
So all that being said I cleaned my sink today. Sounds pretty easy but It took me half an hour to do the dishes just so I could clean the sink. Now I have a dishwasher running and a sparkling sink. Once it's done hopefully it well be smooth sailing from here on out. I can't wait for day 2.
