|Look at our dining room table! There are actually four places!|
Sometimes we just get so overwhelmed by how out of control things feel that we can't even begin to get our act together. You don't even know where to begin because there is just so much to do. The piles of clothes, mail and things to get done look at you and taunt you as you move about the house. It makes you feel guilty and like a bad wife/mother/person for allowing these piles to accumulate.
We had a fresh slate to begin with upon returning from a revitalizing vacation so we wanted to keep the feeling going. We are on Day 3 of keeping this house clean and are doing much better than we ever have before. After we use something, we are putting it away or in the dishwasher. It is easy to put one bowl in the dishwasher, or even wash one pan out if it's just one. When the sink and counter are covered it's a lot harder and takes a lot more motivation to get it done. We are going to keep this up.
I hope that our house continues to look like this. Operation Clean House has made it all the way to day 3. This is a huge step for us!
