Well, yesterday’s meeting ran over an hour longer than I expected it to. I got home just in time to put the kids to bed. Plus I was feeling sick and lightheaded. Blech. I scooped the litterbox and put the laundry in its proper place, but the dishes were sorely neglected. I woke up to a mountain this morning.
Today, the maintenance crew is coming in to change the furnace filter. Exciting as that may be, it means I will have to shift my focus a little bit from long-range cleaning to immediate, short-term results. I hate that, because I end up making decisions that make it harder to do a thorough cleaning later on – stashing piles of et cetera in random hidden corners, for example.
So rather than actually DO something, I blog about it instead. Yes. This works for me.
I need to take out the trash and do the dishes. Those are top priority today. We’ll see what else I get done, and then I’ll modify my plan accordingly.
Why don’t things ever want to go the way I expect them to? Sheesh….
Update: Whoo!! The kitchen looks sparkly, and the floor is clean! I did it! Not spotless, but there’s nothing mortifying about the way my home looks… it’s kind of nice. Now that it’s tidy in here, I can really get down and focus on the nitty gritty details. Yay!
