Do you have one little thing that would make a big difference if you got it done? We often have these little things on our “quality of life” to do list! I have a giant toddler handprint on my living room window – I think I will get to it because it is terribly distracting!
and then kept on sitting on my butt reading through my feeds and stuff.
And then I Dream of Clean popped up on my page and asked
Nice!!! Should we hold you to it? Maybe, let us know when it’s complete? 🙂
So I got up and took a photo of my toddler besmudge’d window:
and got out my window cleaner and cleaned that window, and the other window.
And then, since I was standing up without my laptop, I couldn’t help but notice that there were a few…other…. issues with my living room. Seriously.
This is pretty typical – laundry baskets, neary-finished folded washing, train track to nowhere, cushions off the sofa, and books every-which way. What can I say, I have preschoolers!
But getting up and cleaning that one spot on one window totally gave me a burst of energy!
So I went with it. I set my timer for 11 minutes… turned on Dora The Explorer to distract wee Hank from further destruction… and by the time it went off, the living room was looking much better. I kicked some cleaning butt!
For reals, Tim just came upstairs and said “So clean!!!
Sure, the floor could use a vacuum and I have still got a planter box of weeds outside the window.
But it’s a heck of a lot better, and that is just fine with me.
