Catching back up
After nearly a week of doing only the bare minimum of housework, things are pretty messy around here! It seems like everything needs done, but I'm still a bit tired. There are toys everywhere and all the floors need vacuumed, swept, and mopped, and the kitchen is still dirty. I don't even want to think about the bathrooms. And today I just noticed that there seem to be cobwebs in all sorts of hard-to-reach corners. I'm making progress, though: I've stripped all the beds and changed the towels, I have about eight loads of laundry lined up and treated for stains, and I've emptied the kitchen sink.
Sometimes when so much needs done, I'm not sure where to start. I feel as if anything I can do can't possibly make a difference. But then I start the laundry (because it takes so long) and do a load of dishes, then I clean up the kitchen and move into the living room, and it eventually gets done. I have to start in the kitchen, because I can't function with a messy kitchen. I'll just keep plodding along and resting between until it's all done. And it will be soon enough.
Do you have a certain order or method that you turn to when everything's a mess? Any tips?
P.S. Did you know that a large sixteen-month-old baby fits through a cat door?
