Because really, when you see that thick layer of dust that's settled on the bookshelves, don't you just want to get that stuff wiped away ASAP?
I think the reason I got off task for the last few weeks is because I sometimes feel like my kids are suffering from not having enough of my attention because I get caught up in the feeling that my house has to be spic-n-span all of the time. Darn that procrastination gene; because of it, things have slipped more than just a little bit around here and now it seems to me we're living in a dump.
It's time for me to get off my duff and get SOMETHING accomplished around here. I'm getting tired of always stepping over piles of toys, sick of looking at that pile of dirty laundry, and done with digging through the pile of wrinkled laundry for something clean to wear everyday.
I have to remember that now that I'm a stay at home mom, this is as much my job / career as when I was working outside the home. When it comes to keeping up the house, what kind of a schedule, if any, do you follow? How do you balance your daily chores with time for your family?
