Has this EVER happened to you?
You wake up thinking..
“ Today.. I am going to CLEAN my house..
and clean it well!”
You get up, put on some cleaning clothes, have one OR two cups of coffee and start in on the cleaning…
Then while your cleaning you see..
Cobwebs that seemed to have SUDDENLY appeared
Dust in places you forgot about
Stains on rugs you’ve been too busy to see’
Furniture that needed a good sanding and staining
Curtains that could be replaced
and the list goes on..and on.. and ON!!
Oh my. I’m feeling a little overwhelmed.
That’s why I thought I would sit down with my glass of ice cold water with lime and type out my thoughts.
I did get SOME cleaning done, but now I’m thinking that the WHOLE house needs an overdue once through.
And I know EXACTLY how this happened. I’ve gotten out of my routine. I actually have a monthly cleaning routine and I’ve gotten WAY off track with it. That’s why I’m feeling overwhelmed.
So here’s my plan.
We’re starting the second FULL week of August, so I’m not too far behind (looking just at THIS month). I just need to go back and catch up on the jobs I’ve missed up to this date and then I’ll be back on track.
The items later in the month that have been neglected.. will have to wait a little longer. If I try doing it all now.. I’ll go CRAZY…
There is MORE to life then cleaning.. and I’ll be the first to admit I’d rather sit in my beach chair, with my toes in the sand and a cool drink in hand then be busy cleaning house, but I think I’d enjoy The View From My Beach Chair much better knowing my house was clean.
Thanks for reading my rambling. I feel much better!
And now I’m off to clean the coffee pot!
Happy Saturday everybody!!
