Well you might say who does 🙂
I guess I’ve mentioned in a few of my posts that I have organization problem. When it comes to work, I know exactly what to do and the location of my belongings.
Well when it comes to my house, it’s a bit different, not that I don’t know where everything is. I know, but that is because of my good memory not that they are in their specific places and organized! Imagine that; add two toddlers, my home travel business, blogging (also working on a new travel blog), and my husband. I added my husband at the end because he really helps me, not that he doesn’t complain about the way I organized things while helping me.(He won’t be happy with what I said, but hey, it’s my blog I can say whatever I want)
Anyhow, I hired a help once a week to clean the house and maybe help with the children while I do some actual work done. She is very organized and knows exactly how to put things away to de-clutter. I have been inspired by her and decided to keep house the same as she left it for at least one week. I run a clean house don’t get me wrong. But I have to confess it is cluttered. I’m working on putting things back in their places or find a place for things that are just laying somewhere in need of a place.
This inspiration is killing me!!! It’s been three weeks that I promised myself to keep the house de-cluttered, and wasn’t successful yet. It’s almost midnight that I’m writing this post and this is my fifth chance to sit down today. Breakfast, Lunch, dinner, for a short time after I put the kids to bed, and now. Well I have done a lot of things done. Cleaned my bedroom, vacuumed the family room (several times), cooked, cleaned kitchen, did two load of laundry and well amazingly the clothes are all folded and in their drawers. Oh most importantly I reorganized my closet.
But I’m not satisfied yet, I can see toys here and there, there is my daughter’s tea set in the middle of her bedroom, and the bathroom full of floor towels (the kids splashed everywhere bathing) is left for tomorrow to be picked up.
Tell me, can I keep this going for long, will I get used to it? Will I be able to do anything else except cleaning? Is there a cheat sheet for housework? I did play with my children a little but they were entertaining themselves most of today, and we didn’t do any craft, and I didn’t work that much. I can only hope for an easier tomorrow.
