So, my usual plan for house keeping whenever I have an entire day off during the week is to do laundry & shopping & cleaning. Not actually a plan...more of a dream. I start out strong, and fizzle out before noon. At the end of the day, not much is completed.
So, today will be different.
I will complete one babystep, then another and another. I will take breaks and stop when I feel overwhelmed. Hopefully, by stringing them all together, I will see a difference.
Then, I will step back and be content with what I have accomplished and not beat myself up over what I didn't get to.
I'll let you know how it goes :-)
Quilt & sheets washed & hung out on the line
End table* cleared, dusted & only what belongs there (lamp, remotes,coasters) replaced.
*this is my "Oasis of Order". When my end table is clutter-free, I feel less stressed & more likely to keep other problem areas of my home de-cluttered.
RSVP'd to a baby shower (invitation was buried on said end table)
Collected trash throughout the house & taken to the dumpster
Cleaned bedroom ceiling fan
Moved part of LR furniture, vacuumed under it & moved it back
Made up the bed w/clean sheets & quilt
Breaking until after lunch
Slowing down some...
Hung another load of laundry on the line
Removed stick on numbers from an address sign for the lake house. DH will sand it down & re-paint it on Saturday.
Shortened new pillow cases (we have a king bed, but prefer standard pillows - the sets always include king pillow cases)
Taking a break for a glass of water & a half hour of HGTV
Called my Mom - now my heart is smiling
No, the house isn't tidy and dinner wasn't anything to write home about, but I got a lot done
