Today’s Daily Checklist is not one to be proud of. It is incomplete.
I didn’t wipe down bathrooms last night, or make lunches, or finish a load of laundry.
I did lay out clothes, but grumbled while I did it.
I didn’t wake up this morning and remember to start a load of laundry.
I got up early and worked on taping the last of the newspapers to the floor so I could start painting immediately after taking the boys to school.
I did clean up the kitchen, but didn’t sweep this morning because I couldn’t find the broom.
I did pick up my daughter’s room so my mom could stay in there since she’s coming to help paint the room that is also the guestroom.
I did finish doing the primer in the entire room, with my mom’s help.
I did go empty the dishwasher and sweep the kitchen just now because I didn’t feel like I could write a post without doing something.
I’ve been totally focused on my BIG project, so it’s hard to worry about the details. But it’s the details being taken care of on a daily basis that makes it possible to do the big projects. It’s a big cycle, but in a good way if I can keep it going.
So, no, I haven’t been the model “reforming slob” today, but it’s a lot more than I would have done before I started these daily tasks. So, for today, I’m going to be okay with that.
