Spring clean?

OK, so my spring cleaning deal didn't quite go as planned....I've still got a looooonnnnnggg way to go. But, I do have a big trash bag, and a couple of boxes of stuff headed to Goodwill....so it's a start...and we did throw out a couple of extra bags of trash! But it's going to take a bit of a gradual approach now....my kids can't take off school forever! :) In fact speaking of school....I have so much of that junk to throw away too....I need like 2 weeks of concentrated cleaning to make a genuine dent....Hey! I forgot...Kristy is coming! She always was good at that! The one fact is that I don't have huge piles under my bed any more, at least not ones that I put under there....she ought to be proud of me.... But really my house is worse than before I started! Sigh! Oh, well, after I throw everything away, it should be easier to keep clean right?

Don't panic! You'll get there... I find the same thing - one thing leads to another...BUT now you make a list of all you found and then onebyone you nail them. One or two a day and you feel soooo good. Like you're actually accomplishing something. Remember you have lots on your plate that others are not dealing with. When you are weak HE is strong :)xxMUM

I know what you mean... my Spring Cleaning this week has been pretty good but I still have a ways to go! My little girls have been making more messes today than I can keep up with and the house DOESN'T look like I've been cleaning all week!!!
