the game has changed and so must the rules. when i had 2 children i did my floors almost every day… yes, i did. they were gorgeous. you could eat off of them. when someone walked in with shoes, i politely asked them to be removed. i had guest slippers.
when the 3rd child came along the standard relaxed, i did my floors 3 times a week… life was still good.
now, ahem… yes, let’s talk about Now. well, let’s not get too specific on the floor cleaning issue, ahem…
The Dude. a little guy with such a cool nickname could be relaxed, chill, easy going, he could even speak baby ‘dude’ (if you are from southern california, you will know what this is).
but. he. is. not.
instead, he has reflux, digestive issues, is a hUngry baby, a demanding nurser, not a great sleeper… and on And on. a blessing to be sure, sweet, quite happy (at times) but not … easy.
so, time for a change.
i have been struggling with the ‘getting it all done’ situation. not that i actually think that it will all ever be done. but, walking around in a zombie like state, i have realized that something must be done. i can begin to work in 10 minute intervals one project at a time. no, Fly Lady, i don’t have 15. not right now. but i have 10.
so, this new category of my blog will introduce you to projects, recipes, ideas, solutions and cleaning that can be done from start to finish in 10 min flat. each one will be tested by me and i will post the tips and tricks. this is a challenge to help me improve my quality of life in this difficult time, and i will share the results with you. i would also love love love it if you would share your 10 minute or less tricks and tips. so, let’s start it that way…
have any you would like to share? or would you like to guest blog?
wouldn’t that be an awesome way to spend 10 min?!
