These last three weeks I have been cleaning my filthy house using the techniques of Flylady. I am feeling so much better about the multitude of tasks I have to do while I’m home 🙂
I’ve been dreading these last two spaces in my Living Room. My computer work station for my book work in the business…
It is really dusty 😦
The other space is my work table that holds all book work I am doing. I have been giving these spaces “Stink Eye” for quite some time because of the accounting work I do and hate doing. This year, however, my load has been lightened by suggestions from my friends, Maureen and Lynn 😀
I bit the bullet and decided to get these two areas done today. It took about an hour to do instead of the 15 minutes I have been following but I am so glad I took the time. My Living Room is now FINISHED and can be marked off of the long list I have.
My work station is all clean. Dust removed from all of the surfaces. Desk pulled away from the wall and vacuumed beneath. I have a big load off my shoulders 🙂
The small equipment pieces are also clean 😀
I finally have room to walk through my Living Room and get to the Kitchen without knocking papers and boxes onto the floor 😀
I’ve even cleaned my Foyer this week and it looks so open and roomy 😀
Tomorrow, all I have left to do for this week’s Flylady Zones are the two spaces on either side of the Foyer counter, sweep and wash the floor, and wash the front door.
These jobs will be done tomorrow. Purging, sweeping, mopping, and washing won’t take very long. About an hour and all my work will be done for this week.
One of the other areas for this week is the Dining Room Table. Ya, right. Good luck with THAT!
Joe has taken over the table and I don’t know when I will get it back. I do have one little corner of the table to use as a press for the Post-It-Note Holders I am making.
The Dutch Oven is my “Craft Press”. The rest of the stuff is all Joe’s. He needs a “Man Cave” in the worst way….maybe I need him to have a “Man Cave” 😀
All of the dust and gross stuff that has been in the three rooms I’ve been working on these past weeks has mounted in my vacuum. This looks terrible but do I feel better about having done all this work. The air is beginning to smell better in my house. 😀
15 minutes at a time each day. A couple days I’ve worked a bit longer than the 15 minutes. Some spaces I’ve spent only an hour in. Soon I will have cleaned my entire house and will be proud to have company 😀
Truly, this system works and makes housework less of a chore than it is when you try to kill yourself to get it all done at one time.
