A Challenge

I have looked over the articles at SimpleMom.Net often, and now I have decided to take on one of her challenges. I am going to try to Spring Clean my house in 10 days. The website provides a great organization tool that breaks up the work into 10 steps, and by the end you have a deep-cleaned house.

Here is the link for any of you who might be interested.

Cleaning has never been easy for me. Often I just don't know what I am not doing. My mind kind of filters out some areas as not important. I vaccum all the time. I keep up with the dishes and laundry, and wiping down counter tops. Luke's room is usually fairly neat. I don't clean the bathrooms as often as I should (the shower/bath especially) and I don't dust very often. Partly, I just don't think about doing some items. With this challenge, I hope to hit everything. Then, once the house has had a good once over, I can begin to put some unfamiliar tasks to work on a regular basis.

Well, we will see how this goes!

You've inspired me...I don't think I'll do it quite the same way, but it is definitely time for an organizational makeover. Now that we've lived here for 6 months, I think I know where things 'should' go!
