Thursday is Mopping Day on my totally-made-up Weekly Cleaning Task Schedule.
But I didn’t mop yesterday. Instead I finished up a VERY big writing project that had a deadline, met with my church’s music minister about our Christmas production (because it’s the end of August so we’re already behind!), and kept up with daily tasks like unloading the dishwasher and re-loading it and wiping down counters and such.
Because neglecting Daily Tasks for Weekly Ones doesn’t work out well for me.
And then today came. And when I got home from working out (for the fifth time in five days!!!), I had a decision to make.
Do I skip Mopping Day and make it Dust and Vacuum Day?
Or do both?
And then I saw the coffee I had dribbled across the floor, and decided it was Mopping Day.
If I wasn’t so determined to get back on track, I might have used a towel to wipe up the dribbles, or just pretended I didn’t see them.
But those dribbles helped me make my decision.
And now it’s done. I skipped Dusting and Vacuuming and instead did a ten minute pick-up.
Twenty thirty minutes would have been required before I could dust and vacuum.
I’m making progress, people. And honestly, I’m counting on the guaranteed motivation to dust and vacuum next week since I’ll be expecting visitors when our church home group starts back up.
How has your week gone? Are you getting back on track?--Nony
