there is an element of fun….
Ah, Mary Poppins.
Don’t we all sometimes long for your sweet optimistic attitude toward daily chores?
I’ll admit it frankly- I am not the best housekeeper. Now, I try – and I have gotten better – there are just many other things I would rather be doing and I tend to get caught up and *honestly* forget to do some chores. So I have made a list of chores that I need to do every week to keep my home running smoothly. Obviously some things (like doing the dishes) aren’t on here – and I also left off more detailed cleaning that may need to be done once or twice a month. But this list helps me remember to do all my chores- it’s also good for moments when I just stand in my kitchen and turn in circles looking at the mess all around me….I just pick a task from this list and move on. Some days I’m extra motivated and I do 4 or 5 things…which is good for the days that I do none. I also like this list because it provides the satisfaction of checking something off – a visual that it is DONE! So you can print this out and frame it behind glass –
then use dry erase marker to check off each task every week (you could also add a few to the list with your marker). Here’s to better luck with house cleaning!
