As the mother of two very little girls (3 and 8 months), I’ve really struggled with keeping my home clean.
And I don’t think I’m alone.
I think a lot of mothers struggle to maintain some kind of order in what can easily become theircastle of chaos (aka–their homes).
One of my biggest weaknesses is just getting started. I get so overwhelmed with the constant pile-up of dirty dishes and laundry, the sorting through mail and toys and figuring out how to work in actual deep cleaning, that I sometimes just give up.
I just told my hubby I’m working on a review of the 31 Days to Clean book. He said: “You ARE?” I said: “Yes.” He said: “Um, are you still doing 31 Days to Clean?” I said: “No, it ended.” He said: “Ohhhhh, now it makes sense!”
Ouch. As I look around me, my house is not what it should be.
One good thing about 31 Days to Clean? You can re-start it each and every month if you want or need to.
Just like God’s amazing grace lets us start over and over again.
I spent June doing the 31 Days to Clean“new” challenges, establishing routines for a more organized “cleaning” system.
I plan on re-starting the book in either August or September and tackling the original challenges, which involve more deep cleaning.
