I have made it pretty clear in earlier blog posts that I hate to clean, I have piles of laundry and I am not naturally tidy. However, I really want to be a housekeeping wiz. I would love to be able to whip a room into shape. If I could only say,”Oh, I just organized all the closets and I feel so good” once in a while.
I was at a friend’s house this weekend when her housekeeper showed up. I watched this woman float through the rooms like a cleaning fairy and in her wake was a magically organized house. You would think this made me wish I had a maid. It didn’t. Quite the opposite. I wished that I had the ability to float through a space and leave order behind me.
Then BAM!!! It hit me. I had so much fun with last week’s experiment on personal appearance, why don’t I do it again with something that is factually much more challenging for me??!!
Will you please, please do this experiment with me? Tackle those projects you have been putting off, get all that laundry put away, organize the Tupperware drawer– maybe even conquer the garage.
I started yesterday with the landing that leads to the playroom. It had become a dumping ground and the light had burned out. Just getting that handled created so much more space.
So let’s do this! Our houses, cars, living areas will be all set for the Holiday Season and maybe once and for all cleaning will be fun.
Post pics to Our Urban Playground’s Facebook Page, Instagram, or Twitter (hashtag #cleaningfun). You can also leave comments on what you think about this idea or your own accomplishments below. We will run the experiment until Thanksgiving Day.
