I don’t think that I posted a daily checklist last week at all.
Maybe not even the week before.
And I can feel the difference that it makes. Even though the house is leaps-and-bounds better than it was pre-blog, not consciously doing my daily checklist means that I skip a few things here and there. And when Sunday evening comes around and it’s time to open the front door to guests, there’s quite a bit of work to do.
The good news is that it doesn’t take that long to get it in order. The better news is that when I DO consciously do the daily checklist (even almost every day), there’s just not that much to do.
When that’s the case, I can take a much-desired-Sunday-afternoon-nap without having to plan to get up in time to get the house ready.
So here’s today’s incomplete checklist. I’m heading up to work at my son’s school, so I’m justifying not doing everything.
I’m good at justifying stuff.
Wiped down kitchen cabinets.
Shopped for this week’s groceries, only forgetting the really important stuff like laundry detergent for Laundry Day and salt which we’ve been almost-out-of for weeks. Seriously, we’re down to a few grains.
And as much as I’m trying to think of something else that I’ve done . . . I can’t.
Why the picture of the watermelon? I splurged at the store this morning, and am overly proud of myself for being able to wash it in an empty sink and cut it up on a clear counter top. Like I wrote last week, that’s a pretty big deal for a slob.
And it’s pretty.
