Right now I am at that point where I realize I spent the whole fall outside in the beautiful weather and totally neglected my house. Now it is freezing outside and I want to be warm in my house and I can't stand to look at it!
This happens every.single.year. And I hate it.
I hate to do housework, but when my house is clean, I love it and I love the satisfaction of working hard and completing my goals. It's just so hard to get started.
I have a mountain of laundry. There are always dishes in the sink. There is stuff everywhere and as I said yesterday, we have had to shut off half of our house so we can keep it warm and it is starting to feel very cluttered and messy and I despise it!
So now we add Christmas decorations and it's even more of a mess!
I am so overwhelmed. I want this place looking nice before Christmas, so I am going to take some baby steps in addition to the regular duties I have every day (dishes, load or 2 of laundry, etc).
Thursday: Fold and put up all clothes, straighten laundry room
Friday: Out of town to doctor
Saturday: Clean out fridge and pantry
Sunday: Clean diningroom, put Christmas tubs back in shed!
Monday: Clean off and around my desk
Tuesday: Organize bathroom cupboards
Wednesday: Clean Sunporch.
I'm going to hold myself to this list and hopefully a week from today I will report a cleared off list and I will be a lot happier with myself and my house!
