I've neglected my house until I'd now be embarrassed if I had unexpected visitors. My husband doesn't see it as he lives in his office. I guess its a good thing its beginning to bother me.
I've decided (after I return from a long weekend vacaton) I'm going to to the old "spring cleaning" thing. Strip each room to its bones and do it: baseboards, ceiling cobs, wash and polish the hardwoods, take down and wash the curtains. etc.
But I need to make it manageable so I'll do it all. so I was thinking....................
What if I assign one day a week to cleaning......some rooms will be a snap like the bathrooms. That way I won't fell I'm trapped.....though I may dread the approach of that day.
How do some of you FORCE yourself to do the job. I need a reward system?
(My mother had a cleaning lady: that's why I don't have the housekeeping gene.)
