The title of this post says it all: I’m tired but determined to get a handle on this house. (Didn’t I just do a pre-baby nesting?!) I know it may be hard to believe, but keeping a house organized, let alone clean, with 3 small children is hard!
And just knowing where to start is a challenge! Before kids I would take a day or two, start in one corner of the house and clean and organize every room, drawer, nook and cranny till I reached the other end of our home. Those days are long gone and simply restarting the washer for the 2nd…3rd time because the clothes smell weird seems overwhelming.
So I’m starting off the New Year right and subscribed to Apartment Therapy’s The January Cure! Every week day in the month of January they will send me an email with my daily organizing assignment (thank goodness for weekends off or the chance to catch up on all the missed assignments ;))
I figure I can handle one cleaning/organizing job a day and they say by the end of the month I will be sitting pretty…or maybe that’s my house.
“Like anything worthwhile, it’ll take some effort but we’ll dole out the assignments, day by day, in totally do-able bits. And, it’s truly a group project so we’ll all be in it together, helping each other out with tips, ideas and lots of moral support.in each day’s comment thread.”
If you are feeling like your house is falling down around you and you’re being buried alive by the chaos that your family has created (cause we all know we are totally innocent) join me in this challenge and we can help keep each other accountable!
Cheers to a great start to 2014!!
