I am on a cleaning frenzy! Now, that doesn’t happen often with me (as my husband would probably tell you), so it’s a big deal around this house. How bad could my house possibly be, you ask? Well, let’s just say that those frosted glass shelves in my curio cabinet are actually not frosted at all, they just appear that way and considering you could probably put together a meal of M&Ms and popcorn out from under the cushions of my living room couches…well, you get the idea. Yes, I am the first to admit that I am not a great housekeeper. I love a clean house, I just hate having to clean it. However, send me into someone else’s house and I will clean that thing from top to bottom with no problem (just ask my sister and brother-in-law, seeing as I cleaned their whole entire house until sparkling clean while they were gone on their honeymoon as a wedding gift to them and it was no easy task, sorry Dana, but it wasn’t LOL). Why do I have no problem cleaning other peoples’ houses but hate cleaning mine? I’m not exactly sure, but I’m guessing that it’s just because it’s somewhere different and doesn’t feel as monotonous as cleaning the place you look at everyday. Whatever the reason may be, I just have a hard time motivating myself to really thoroughly clean my house, instead of just doing the daily surface things (and sometimes I’m not even all that good with that, to be honest). But, here I am today, I’ve already thoroughly cleaned my family room (washed windows, moved the sectional and vacuumed, vacuumed in the cushions, dusted, wiped down the walls…all that good stuff). It looks awesome and as tempted as I am to just sit in this room and bask in the clean beauty of it all…I’m motivated to make the other rooms in my house just as enjoyable to be in. So, off I go! Let’s hope this motivation lasts long enough to get through the other 8 rooms in my house!
