Just one more good habit...
I'm not one for New Years resolutions, but a few years back I decided to make an annual goal of establishing just one more good habit. (This way I figure by the time I die I'll be nearly perfect, chalked full of responsible behavior.)
Last year it was to keep a clean trunk. And I did it!!!
The year before that it was to keep a clean car. And I did that too!!!
The year before that it was to keep a family birthday calendar. I failed miserably!!!
So this year I've decided to a load of laundry a day. Thrilling, I agree. My habit has been to designate "Monday" as my cleaning and laundry day (& I consider it a firm date with myself, no openings in my social calendar). I work like a dog all day & end up with a clean house and (mostly) folded laundry. But the problem is that I work like a dog & end up with a clean house (900 sq. ft apt, rather), but it doesn't stay that way all week. And I find myself annoyed & stressed on Wednesday. So the past two days I've done a load of laundry each day (start to finish) and I feel it's motivation spilling into other areas (like I've scrubbed my kitchen floor both nights). My plan is to take off weekends & wash sheets on the days I don't have a full load of clothes.
But anyway, there's my non-resolution for 2013! Aren't you glad you know me? I keep it exciting over here!
