Smart Habit Saturday~My Dirty Little Secret

I am not sure if any of you know this about me, but one of my all time favorite things is to have a clean, I mean really CLEAN house. I love seeing my bed made, the kitchen counters cleared, floors vacuumed, the works. It's nirvana for me.Here's the kicker though...I downright suck at keeping my house clean. Yes it's true I am totally and completely domestically challenged.Now I know some of you Martha Stewart types are snickering about now, but stop it dang it, just stop it!I have made a pact with myself the time to change is now. I am going to find and embrace my domestic goddess inside.So, I found this blog and I loved it. Smart Habit Saturday is exactly what I need to find my own nirvana daily, not a couple times a year.If someone were to ask me if I could have any gift, anything at all, I would choose to have a maid for year. Seriously. However, that is probably not going to happen in this lifetime, so I am going to make the changes myself. One habit at a time. So check back weekly, help me stay on track, and if you are domestically challenged also, jump on the Smart Habit bandwagon with me!

So Here goes.. Baby steps ladies, baby steps

My June Habit -Wash and fold 2 loads of Laundry a day. Yep- Baby steps

(This is one mountain I have no desire to climb!)

Wash and folding clothes everyday!!! Are you crazy? (I say that with total love!!) I'm a cleaner! In fact it almost a sickness, I could stay nights thinking of what I was going to clean the next day.. But do laundry everyday... Yikes!! Well, you "GO Girl"!!!

I was trying FlyLady.com because I'm domestically challenged too. I really love having a clean house but I get overwhelmed. If I have a job chart, it's better for me. Unfortunately, with my crazy life, I keep having to start over. Step 1 is shine my sink. Time to go shine again!

I finished all my laundry yesterday! And the reward is greater than you can imagine -- I don't have to do laundry today!!! Will this euphoria last forever? No, I'm going to tell the kids to empty their hampers (and get the clothes off the floor) when they get home from school. But, today is glorious!
