I would show you how crazy my house looks, really I would! The only problem with that is you would be paralyzed by fear at what my place has become!
I have messy fairies that come in the middle of the night and terrorize my house. Laundry everywhere, dishes in the sink, juice stains on the floor. They are messy those little fairies!
But as the official Minister Of Planning in my house I have spent a great deal of time trying to organize my thoughts on how I am going to tackle this mess. And that is why I'm on the computer writing rather than picking up....
I'm overwhelmed by the disaster! I need a maid! All I'm doing is just staring at the mess thinking what needs to be done and how I can accomplish it. But once again I'm typing...
I actually got a phone call from my mother today and she told me how my dad thinks I have the most immaculate house on the base. Why you might ask? Because on my Twitter page and Facebook I talk about how I'm cleaning my house or planning to do so. Very true, I should just get up off the sofa, put my laptop away and start cleaning the house. But really, I'm just overwhelmed and wish someone else would do it!
But my mom did give me this great tip: Instead of thinking about all that needs to be done, think, "today I'm going to clean the stove". Sound easy enough so I did the dishes. That was my accomplishment for the day. Tomorrow, the fridge. She also said you can do other things, you know the jobs you don't mind doing (for me it's laundry), then before you know the job you schedule to do will be done and you'll feel great that you managed to get at least one thing done!
And you know what? The toys are still on the ground, paperwork still needs to get done but I'm extremely happy that the dishes got done!
The job doesn't seem so daunting now that I look at the smaller picture.
Just so you know....
