Cleaning just to CLEAN!

As most of you know, I only clean when other people are coming to my house.  It's part of the reason I entertain - it makes me get my house in order!  But, I realized that slowly (or maybe not that slowly) our house is getting out of control.  When it IS time to clean, it's a huge undertaking.  Also, we're not teaching our kids how to get out of this clutter cycle. 

I have been inspired by a link Nicki posted on FB: The Daily 7.  This woman is my hero.  I subscribed to her blog and will be getting my daily cleaning motivation.  I'm starting with the daily 7 today.  I have not made my bed only because I need to wash the sheets today.  :)  Been sick, you know.  But, I have wiped down a bathroom, emptied the trash cans, done a load of laundry, and cleaned off the kitchen counter (still working on the sink), and so far so good on cleaning up after ourselves.  All before 9am!

I do have some major catching up to do since I've been sick for over a week, and before that the kids were sick.  So.... don't expect to come over to a spotless house yet - or ever for that matter.  I do have to be realistic.  I have 3 kids.  3 BUSY kids. 

Be sure to check out the PROM section of the Totally Together website as well.  We're going to PROM our house in sections weekly.  That's the plan!  Wish us luck!

  1. I did it! The kitchen is clean, and the laundry I did the other day is folded. :) We all did the 10 min clean at the end of the day. It's so nice to have a clean living room and basement before I head to bed. I think I'll actually sleep better! This slob might actually change her colors. I can't wait to see my work in the morning. G-nite!
