Really? It’s Friday again?
I’m thinking that my complete shock at the appearance of Thursday evenings just demonstrates my need to stop and check my focus. Otherwise, life goes on, and my home slides farther down on my priority list. You can read about the basic concept behind Focus Check Friday here.
My focus this past week? I’ve done okay. I did most of my daily tasks on most of the days, especially focusing on the kitchen, but I didn’t do very well at the focused 5-minute-pickups. My main focus was preparing for summer. I made the kids’ bathroom cleaning baskets, and took some drastic measures in purging their excess clothing, so I’m ready (excuse-free) to have them help with the laundry and the bathrooms next week.
I didn’t create the dusting/vacuuming checklist like I had planned, but since it’s my Thursday task, I’m hoping to get it done early next week.
For next week, my goal is to stick to the basics. I plan to post my daily checklist in the kitchen, so we can breeze through it together in the mornings. And of course, next week will begin the fun of teaching them how to do laundry, clean bathrooms, dust, etc. At this point, I’m looking forward to it . . . check in next week to see how it went.
How was your focus this week? What are you focusing on for next week?
I encourage you to take a moment to stop and focus. Leave a comment, write a post on your blog and link it up below, or just have a conversation with yourself inside your head.
If you do link up, please say something like “I’m linking up to Focus Check Friday over at A Slob Comes Clean” and link back to this post. If you don’t know how to do that, please ask, I’d love to help.
