What do I mean by barely enough? Basically doing just barely enough to get by. Laundry has been done on an "as needed" basis. Grocery shopping has consisted of many quick trips to pick up stuff for dinner today or breakfast tomorrow. Menu's and actual grocery lists haven't existed. House work has been done in a mad dash during the hour before my husband arrives home from work.
If I was working a job outside of my home where I had to clock in, work a certain amount of time and actually show progress in my work - I would be FIRED!
I am thankful that my husband is a patient man. Patient with me and the lack of progress going on inside of our home. I am not sure exactly why I been this way lately. Lazy, I guess. What I do know is the lack of organization and having things in order is really stressing me out. Also, the Lord has really been dealing with me about how well I have been taking care of my home. I definitley have not been doing everything heartily as unto the Lord. Don't misunderstand, we are not living in a pig pen but the busy-ness of life the past few months has resulted in extra clutter piles and a lot of routine maintainence being neglected.
Just the other day this was the scene as I sat on my porch with my family binder, notebook and some old printed off notes from Fly Lady trying to re-vamp my daily, weekly, and monthly cleaning plans. My husband joked and asked why I was reading Fly Lady when all I really needed to do was go get out Mr. Clean. lol He was right but I like having a plan, a list to go by. I just work better when I do. Having a plan that works is the key though. So get ready as I soon will be re-posting my cleaning plans and schedules. No more barely enough!
What about you? Do you like to have lists and a written plan for what you want to accomplish each day, week and month in your home? Do you stick to them?
