So it is going well so far. I have been waking up and getting dressed to the shoes. I had been keeping my sink shiny until last night. I went out and had a girls night with some awesome friends. We laughed, we giggled, we solved the worlds problems, then I came home.
Apparently the idea of the shiny sink has not caught on with everyone else in the house, or the idea of non sticky counter tops and food being placed in the refrigerator.
So today I face my first realistic obstacle in the house cleaning dilemma, and that is called family. Usually I would give up and “say screw it I can’t beat them all”, “this is pointless” or “why even bother? I am outnumbered 7 – 1”.
So instead of living in a horrifically disorganized house or never leaving again, I need to come up with a plan. I can NOT go back, I have committed myself and it will happen!!
My plan consists of including them in the process. I know it sounds extremely simple and obvious but, we must remember, I am an organized person in training. I plan to print out all the baby steps for us all and making control journals for each of the kids as the steps come along. Teach them as I teach myself. A very simple yet complex thing to do.
Now the question I ask myself is……Is it wrong to make one for Hubby as well?
