I’ll be honest, I pretty much suck at it. I am not one of those organized, clean-obsessed housewives – although I wish everyday at 11:11 that I could be. I am completely envious of those people. The ones that never have a dirty floor, laundry is always done and their house smells like vanilla. How the hell do you do it?
I usually have one giant cleaning session on the weekends which really doesn’t even do the trick. And I make sure that my house always looks nice before company comes over. But I want more than that. I want a spotless house. I want cabinets organized, closets neatly arranged, and every baseboard and window sill dustless. Who knows when I’ll get around to that…
I’m considering going back to the way we all learned to clean in the first place which is a chore list. If I set aside different things to do each day then the house might stay cleaner longer and I won’t have so much to do all at once. Are you all just awesome home makers or do you have to implement some type of plan of action? Does anyone have a maid? That would be ideal, but maybe I should just try not to be so lazy and do it myself.
I’m off to buy crayons and poster board to make myself a sticker chore chart. Once I reach the end of the line I get ice cream!
