In every job that must be done
There is an element of fun
You find the fun and snap!
The job’s a gameAnd every task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake
– Mary Poppins
I don’t like cleaning.
I’m basically the children in Mary Poppins. I don’t want to be a nesting robin or a busy bee. I’d rather just have my piece of cake and eat it too. I find it extremely difficult to get motivated into cleaning.
The house I grew up in was not tidy. at. all.
I suppose I am seeking inspiration to gather momentum. I have been reassessing the chain of tidying-related behavior modeled for me. I need to switch up my priorities a little so that I can get my house in order, not because I should be more materialistic and house proud but instead because it is a distraction from other things which actually are a priority to me.
I will be dedicating myself to a minimum of one hour of deep cleaning and decluttering every evening that Daddy Alsum is away.
This way, when he returns, there should be fewer distractions and that should give us more attention for stuff that matters more.
Encouragement welcome and advise received openly.
From mine to yours,
