Ok, so the plan was 5 minutes a day, right? Well, recently this strange phenomenon has overtaken my brain. My “5 minutes” has turned into several days of wanting nothing but to clean and organize and rearrange everything in sight!
It happens only once or twice a year. Maybe it’s the idea of starting my New Year fresh. Maybe it was that my house had reached such ultimate grossness that I didn’t want to be home anymore– I don’t know. But I’m LOVING it!
To date, I have taken down all my Christmas decorations and stored them all in my shed in these moisture resistant Sterilite bins. Then I cleaned and rearranged everything in my living room.
I cleaned my dining room and home office area and took my recumbent bike out from underneath the table and put it out where I don’t have to move it to use it. (Hopefully that will be the incentive I need!)
I ruthlessly went through my clothes, cleaned and organized my bedroom and both bathrooms and then I tackled the dreaded laundry room. I managed to wash all the laundry, some of which I hadn’t seen in quite some time – several “oh, there it is!” moments.
Now I have several bags for the thrift store.
Now I love to be home again. I love to sit in my pretty living room and watch the fish. I love to do laundry – ok, that’s pushing it – I don’t hate to do laundry, anymore. And my bedroom is a relaxing haven again.
But don’t worry – I still have a LOT of 5 minute (or more) projects ahead of me. I’ll take pictures and post them as I go.
