This is my plan for the day — and for the next two weeks. I’ve been feeling the heavy weight of having no game plan when it comes to homemaking, and after crying in the shower one morning, too exhausted to even come up with a plan (let alone execute it), I found simplemom’s invitation to spring clean in my google reader.
While it’s not my first choice for getting on top of things (I was kind of hoping my mom would suddenly appear, kick us all out of bed one morning, and announce that it was turn-the-house-upside-down week, like she used to), it sure seemed like an answer to prayer.
Unfortunately, today is a toss-the-obvious-junk day, and I guess I’m too good at that, because I don’t have much just laying around. (While I don’t love everything about renting, I do appreciate knowing that I’m going to have to box this all up someday, because it helps me to streamline.) That’s okay. I’m sure the other days (like wipe-the-grime-from-your-kitchen day) will be a good kick in the rear. Yay!
So. Here’s to a jump start at routine and being the man with the plan (so to speak.)
