The past months while I have been so ill with morning sickness my home has become a filthy mess. I’m embarrassed and humbled by it. To get things back together I have come up with a method that I will follow. The reason I have chosen this method is because I’m a bit anemic and the iron isn’t helping yet, I have very limited energy still and tire easily. Plus, I don’t know if you have ever looked into a room so messy that you were at a loss as to where to even start, but that is how several areas of my home are. Sad to say, sigh.
So, I have a plan now that I can at least think clearly, lol. I am going to take a spiral notebook and make a list of everything that needs to be done in one area for it to be clean. Each part of the list will done with small doable jobs. For instance, I won’t put organize the bookcase. Instead I will put organize two shelves on bookcase. Small jobs that I can accomplish one or two of a day along with several loads of laundry, meals and daily lessons. This way I will systematically be getting an area cleaned and organized while at the same time keeping up with my regular daily activities. And I won’t fail because I’m working with the amount of energy that I actually currently have. Not my mental ideal.
I know it doesn’t sound like much. But this is only my third week of cooking meals again, and doing daily school with the children. We took a break of about 4 weeks while I was so bad off. Early summer vacation, lol.
If I was brave I would post before/after pics of my messy rooms. But I’m not all that brave I guess, lol.
