This has been an exceptionally cold winter. So we have been inside an exceptionally long time. And because I have been inside so much I have had the time to notice every baseboard, vent, fan, drawer, line of grout, shower door tray, window, screen, closet (and on and on) that needs my attention. So I would really like to spend an entire weekend cleaning and making my house look perfect. So I could sit down with a giant glass of lemonade and marvel at my amazing work and pretend my house is always this clean. So I could invite my friends over and make them think this is “just the way we live.” And nothing like this…
But that is not going to happen. Because I am a mom to 5 young kids. That’s all I need to say.
Honestly, I really would like my house to be perfectly, thoroughly clean all at one time – just for me to enjoy. But who am I kidding, as soon as I clean one room and move to the next the first will look like this again.
Maybe the same is true for your home.
So I am going to lower the bar. I am going to clean some of those nooks and crannies one at a time – slowly. And I hope you will join me for 30 days of easy spring cleaning were we thoroughly clean one thing each day in 30 minutes or less. I hope that in the end we can sit back and marvel at our progress and enjoy our cleaner homes. Because this has to go, right?
