Though today was busy, it was nothing like life will be come the second week of September. Not only will I be working 40 hours/week, I will have 6.5 hours of class/week, plus church choir and a church committee. Therefore, today was an excellent learning experience.
Lists are important, like I said in a previous post, because they hold you accountable. If I am going to be successful in this endeavor, I must create lists. And I must make the lists at least the night before I want to do them - a key point. My biggest problem with organization/cleaning lists tends to be that I'm over-ambitious. And let's be honest, it feel so much better to cross everything off of your list and feel like you really accomplished something, than to have even one item remaining. Knowing that I'll have about an hour - an hour and a half of time to devote to cleaning and organizing each day, my goals should be realistic.
So, for practice, my day tomorrow is even more full than today. Here is my list:
1. Do dishes
2. Unpack remaining boxes in living room and/or put them in storage (get them out of living room)
3. Sweep & mop kitchen and bathroom (because this is a very doable task that makes me feel good)
4. If time, clean and organize top of desk in living room
We'll see how tomorrow goes!
