Well, I should do an update on my good intentions. Overall, things are going well. My house has been cleaner than it has in a while ( still a long way to go) and it’s not getting worse which is also something new. I am not amazing at following my planner, however, I follow what I put for my daily stuff more than I had figured I would. It is taking some time to figure out a schedule so I am still in the tweaking phase.
DH is fully on board and keeps reminding me I need to schedule time for me in there or I will quit. He isn’t wrong. I haven’t scheduled any time, however, I make sure that I am not scheduling more than an hour or two of work during the week and about 4–5 on the weekends. Whatever is undone for the day, moves to the next day.
I have one more horrid room to cover and then most of the house will be in ‘maintenance mode’ meaning I just need to keep it picked up. That is light years from almost every room being horrid. 10 years ago, there were paths through my house. Everyplace was a disgusting mess everywhere and you couldn’t move in it.
Since my son was born it got much better, however, it was still not where it should be. I have been doing a less than ok job at keeping my house up if I’m being honest. I haven’t made it back to paths – but I’m not where I need to be as an adult.
