(Scroll to the end of this post to see the winner of January's blog giveaway & to read about February's prize.)
For all the years I worked a corporate job and reared our children I fantasized about working from home for many reasons, not the least of which was the time I'd have to keep a perfectly clean house.
Back in those days I depended on some sort of inspiration ~ relatives coming for a visit, parties, a neighbor calling to say she was stopping by in 20 minutes ~ to motivate me to clean the house.
Today, the kids are long grown up and gone. I'm working from home and crazy-busy sewing. And amusing myself with taking these goofy pictures! Our house is nowhere close to sparkling clean because the dust bunnies seem to have grown into gorillas.
I really love a clean house, but I haven't been disiplined enough to keep it as clean as I'd like. I needed a plan.
Look what I found:
For two weeks now I've been following this schedule, modified a bit, and my house is super clean. Not sparkling yet (jeez, if I typed that I'm sure lightening would've struck!). Instead of spending an entire day cleaning, I'm finding doing a bit every week day is much more manageable.
So seeing that it's Tuesday again, I'm off now to dust. Just as soon as I finish browsing Pinterest and surfing other sites for new crafting projects I'll probably never make!
In case you need a bit of cleaning inspiration, I'm offering the sweet apron I'm wearing in these pictures for my February blog giveaway:
