Today was busy. I’m trying to write quickly before running out to pick up kids and head to the park.
Did a 5 minute pick-up.
Dusted. (Because it’s Friday.)
Vacuumed. (Because it’s Friday.)
And I have to report that after two weeks of being more focused on my daily checklist, I’m seeing a huge difference. Yes, I was doing it before, but without the focus. While I was grateful that the house could be cleaned up much more quickly than it could pre-blog, I’m reminded that when I do the daily checklist consistently, it almost doesn’t require a clean-up.
Last Sunday afternoon, I was stress-free, leisurely going through the house to check for flushed toilets and undie-free coffee tables in the 30 minutes before our home group arrived. Monday, my sister-in-law came over to give the kids Valentine’s presents, and I didn’t freak out. Even a little bit. I just smiled and invited her to stay for dinner.
It’s amazing how much of a difference each tiny thing makes.
