It's my day off and I have been getting caught up on my cleaning. There was laundry to do, floors to sweep and vacuum, dishes to wash, decluttering (always decluttering)... I don't want to spend my off days cleaning. There has to be a better way.
I am going to give FlyLady a try. I am hoping that by establishing simple morning and evening routines, spending fifteen minutes decluttering and doing zone work each day, I can keep the chaos (Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome) at bay.
You would think I'd have this working and homemaking thing down pat by now, but I don't. I have never been very good at balancing, and yet it is thing I must master if I am to keep my sanity. Clutter and messiness zaps my energy, steals my clarity of mind, and overwhelms me.
I tend to be a perfectionist. I want to do things perfectly or not at all. This is not conducive to a clean house! Acknowledging this tendency is the first step in overcoming it and getting control of my home and life.
Here's to new beginnings!
