A few weeks ago my husband was at home for the day and decided to deep clean the kitchen and keep it that way all day. I watched as he diligently worked throughout the day to keep up with the demand that our kitchen takes. After his third load of dishes and constant care throughout the day I mentioned how exhausting it is and that just that one room in the house is a full-time job. He couldn't believe it but agreed. He tried to stay ahead of it for a few days but then his enthusiasm failed. I told him I just have to pick up in the morning and then at night or I would spend my entire day in the kitchen.
Anyway all these stories are to tell that I'm feeling like I want to be more clean and organized but that it is often overwhelming in my house of kids. Last night I saw that my cousin-in-law took a cleaning challenge and decided I'd do so too. It is great because she just gives you one task a day for 21 days and it will help clear the clutter in the house in places that I don't get to as often. Only problem is that I'm started on the 5th so I have to play catch up over the next few days! I'll post pictures of my progress.
I'll probably still hire a maid!!
