You say to time yourself just to see how long it takes to do a chore. I decided to time myself sweeping the floor.It took about 13:30 from start to finish. (I could have been faster but I stopped to care for kids a couple times so it was more like 10-11 mins.)
1) Before2) Everything swept into a pile3) I have a large open wood floor and I have found sweeping everything into one large pile and then putting the stuff away is easiest for me, otherwise I am running all over the floor picking up random stuff and it just makes me dizzy4) After I put the stuff away and just left with trash and the after5) Upon seeing the after I decided to do a 5 min pickup for my counter…still messy but better.You are an inspiration to me. I am getting consistent with my dishes so this week I am adding sweeping my floor. I am teaching myself routine!! THANK YOU!!!
Yesterday I sent you an email about timing myself sweeping my kitchen/Dining Room. Yesterday it took me around 13 minutes to sweep, put away all the stuff I had swept into a pile and sweep up the actual trash/dirt and throw it away.Jump forward to today I swept again and timed myself again and would you believe it, it only took 5 minutes!! That included stopping and talking to my daughter for like 30 seconds. It does get easier.So far I am doing my dishes and I am sweeping my floor. I was having a really hard time with my dishes until I started loading it throughout the day, now my dishes seem to be doing themselves!! (if only)I think my next habit will still be in my kitchen area (I have a great room so kitchen, dining and family room all in one). I think It will be clearing my counters and table daily, but first I need to get used to sweeping everyday!
