Man have I been a lazy bones recently! It’s the worst! People tell me to rest while I still can, and I think I am taking that advice way to literally. My house is a disaster, and I wish I could say that I was doing something so productive that I just don’t have time to clean my house, but the reality is that’s not true. In fact, that would be an outright lie, because my free time is spent napping, or just sitting on my couch. Don’t get me wrong I love it, but I also love a clean house. Do you think I could just be like Samantha from Bewitched and just wiggle my nose to get the house cleaned?? Then I could have a clean house AND sit on my couch….no?? Bummer! Instead I guess I have to go back to the basics. A while back I did a post about creating a chore chart. It was great, it worked well and my house looked great. The best part about it is I only spent no more than 30 minutes a day cleaning! But somehow I stopped following the chart along the way and it got hard again, so I have to get back on track and get back to the chore chart.
The sad thing is I have the chore chart staring at my on my bullitine board in front of my desk. Each days task is simple and easy, and doesn’t take much time, but as the end of the work day rolls around I decide to put off that days task onto the next day…then the next…then the next and it doesn’t get done. I am hoping that by writing this post I am guilting myself into starting the charts back up next week. That’s right dear readers! Monday I PROMISE to get back on track….oh wait, Monday is memorial day…well dear readers I PROMISE to get back on track on Tuesday! I promise this isn’t a cop out. I will be at my parents house in PA this weekend and won’t be back till Tuesday, so really I COULDN’T start the chart till then.
A clean house just feels wonderful. I wish I could remember that instead of my desire to do nothing. For now, I am hoping you guys can keep me on track. Do you have a chore chart or any type of organized cleaning schedule? What works for you? Maybe your ideas can motivate me!!!
