Well, I am feeling a little bit better about my cleaning ability today. Yesterday was a wash because I live with my super distracting boyfriend, and we had to watch Deadliest Catch and the episodes of Boy Meets World that we had on our DVR. But, he told me to just relax and worry about things tomorrow, so that's what I did!
Tonight, right when I got home, I put on some cleaning music and went to work on the 30 minute clean up (which was actually 40 minutes today!). I started in the kitchen (loading the dishwasher and wiping the counters) and ended in our bedroom (picking up trash...mostly tags from new clothes..and polishing the nightstand and dresser). While nothing is really immaculate, I did get something accomplished and I feel good about that. If I do work on one mess at a time, and keep that mess clean, then I should have a clean house in no time!!
