I don't know about you but
Some weeks I am
It just seems there is so much to do.
I work full time and I have a home to keep up
I have four children, and their spouses, and 9 grandchildren
And. . . .a calling in my Church. . . .and and, and
Well, the list goes on and on.
Needless to say, I sometimes feel
Stressed, Overwhelmed, and Depressed!
I thought at my age, life would slow down.
I was wrong. . .I feel like it has sped up. .
How about you? Does anyone else feel this way?
Well, this month it has been my home that has
Given me stress. . No time to do all the chores
It takes a lot of time to keep a home clean and tidy.
Now mind you I live alone, Ya, what is the problem with me
Well part of the problem is I have not had the Energy
Ambition, nor Desire to do all the necessary chores.
I would rather crochet, paint crafts or sew. You name it!
I remember when things were calmer
I remember when homemaking looked like this
I think I was tricked. . .
I wish my fridge looked like this
I don't even have time to bake a cake!
Well, to sum it up I came across some tips for
Keeping my home clean and tidy. .
I thought I would pass it on to you.
Simple little things to do
Daily spend 10 minutes in each room
De-clutter papers and mess. Do a little dusting each day.
Spend an additional 5 minutes in the kitchen. .
Add decorative baskets to each room to collect "stuff"
Then every few days empty the contents to their permanent
Every week spend 30 minutes in each room
Vacuum all carpeted ares. Mop tile and hardwood floors.
Do a mini- deep cleaning.
Every month dust all things you normally don't do during your
daily and weekly dusting. . like picture frames
ceiling fans, baseboards, and blinds.
Vacuum the couch it's cushions and other furniture.
Scrub all windows. Pay attention to details.
Pull out appliances and clean behind them.
I have always felt it was such a honor and blessing
To be a HOMEMAKER. .
And when I let things go in my home
I feel disorganized, frustrated and depressed.
Not a good way to feel.
So this week-end I spent the time doing the
Things to make my home feel good again.
And in the long run I feel much better.
Please do come back
