OK, last week I set my goal to do housework for 1 hr each day (except Sundays). I did pretty good, but Thursday I didn't do any and Friday I only did about 1/2hr. So I'm going to keep this as a goal until it becomes a habit.
And I'm going to share a story about how keeping things clean can save you money. I hate doing dishes and so they got piled up pretty high the last few days. Well, my cats love that because then they get on the counter and eat off the dishes. Unfortunately when you have dishes precariously stacked near the edge of the counter, a cat can knock them off pretty easily. We now have one less bowl and small plate. If I'd done dishes earlier like I should have that wouldn't have happened. Soon we're going to have to buy new dishes if that keeps happening. So putting off my housework costs me money.
I'm going to add a little sub-goal to my cleaning goal. It is to empty the dishwasher as soon as it's done and put dirty dishes in it as they get used so I can run it when it's full. Hopefully by doing this I can avoid dishes crashing onto the floor!
