Yesterday I took tiny bites out of the clutter in our home.
I even had the kids stop playing around 4pm for a “Five Minute Pickup”. The living room is pretty tidy this morning. The school/den area is pretty tidy. Even the Little’s room is still pretty picked up. I didn’t make any great progress in any new spaces. Maintaining what had been done was a big deal to me though!
A while ago, I read a great eBook from Nony (@ASlobComesClean) on baby steps to getting your house in order and LOVED it. That was at the old house. This one hasn’t been unpacked all the way yet. It creates an additional challenge.
My only issue with her book was that it started with dishes.
The dishes make me bonkers.
I don’t mind washing them.
Once I get started I could stand there and wash all of them, even the clean ones!
But getting me to the sink? It’s like trying to bathe a cat.
She wants me to do the dishes after dinner – every stinkin’ night.
Who wants to come put these dishes away so I can wash some more before I have to leave at lunchtime?
Fine. I’ll go do the dishes.
I guess if I had done the dishes last night like Nony suggested I wouldn’t have this problem huh?
