As you can see in the before pictures I have boxes piled up by the front door, clothes and jackets hanging over the chair, baskets and laundry bags on the dining floor, shopping bag, papers and cake box laying on the table. Behind the living room couch are laundry baskets full of clean clothes that I need to fold and put away. Not only I don't fold the clothes right away I also do not put them away as quickly as I should thus leaving me mountains of clean clothes sitting in the baskets.
When I woke up today I was already determined to clean my house. As I looked around looking and thinking of ALL the things I have to do it started to overwhelm me so I told myself to do one section at a time and think about getting something done instead of nothing at all. My problem is I tend to want to clean and do it all at once or none at all which leaves more things for me to do later on.
So I tackled my chores a little at a time, taking a break in between when I'm starting to have that feeling of laziness or when I'm starting to tell myself "I don't wanna do it.." or "I'll do it later.." These kind of thinking is obviously my downfall and is hindering me from keeping my house clean. Though I did most of the work my two sons deserved some credits because they help me out today with the trash, sweeping and dusting.
So here are the after pictures of clean dining/living room...don't they look better? It took me a while but I got it done. What a big difference..it felt good too!
'till next time my friends!
