Things have been hectic and keeping up with cleaning has been the last thing on my mind. I seriously have no Idea how people do it. Along with cleaning regularly I have set a few other goals for myself, like working on waking up early and actually exercising for once, but much like the cleaning it is not going as well as I would have hoped.
Only four days sense the beginning of this month have I done any cleaning, which is terrible. But I have always been a person who tends to put things off until the last minute. Especially if I don’t like the task.
To help me clean more I have opened my house to a craft night to the ladies at my church. While we haven’t gotten it into a full swing yet It is helping me want to keep my house clean. Sometimes I just need that motivation of someone coming over to visit to give me the drive to clean. Now I just need to find the drive when people aren’t coming over and keep the house clean for me and my family not just other people.
I tried the lists and they didn’t help much but I am still trying. I feel I need a little bit longer to have them be part of my every day routine. I have also been looking for motivation in several places from other peoples blogs, to quotes and sometimes they work but other days….well you get the idea.
Finding a routine and keeping it is one of the hardest things I have ever done. Even when I was a teenager I never kept a normal routine, so I don’t even know if I am going about it right. But like everything else I try I will just keep pushing forward until I find the right way for me.
If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. Read them, whatever.
