Today the prompt for the feel Good Blogging challenge is to write a personal post. The thing is that I am pretty much an open book on my blog and writing personal posts aren’t really a challenge for me. I’ve been open with you all about my health issues I talk about my marriage and parenting and my family. I’m an open person in general and not much is too personal to share in my opinion. I guess I probably censor myself especially when talking about other people but that’s more for their benefit than my own. I don’t think my husband or daughter need me sharing every detail of their lives with you. Also typically if I’m asked a question I will answer, so if you have a question feel free to ask away. So today I decided let’s do more of a confession as my post and share with you something I’m a little ashamed/embarrassed about.
So here I go and please be nice. We all have things we aren’t particularly proud of and this is mine. I love the idea of cleaning and organizing. I pin stuff on it all the time and love watching cleaning videos on YouTube but I’m really actually not very good at it. I want to be and I wish it came naturally to me but it doesn’t. Then I married someone who also lacks the cleaning gene and we created a child who is not the best at it either.
I try to be better though and I go through phases and periods where I do better with it and then life gets in the way. We get busy or we get stressed and cleaning isn’t a priority and our house becomes a chaotic mess and it’s overwhelming to get it back on track. The last two weeks with all the extra stress of money and getting the car fixed as well as Bella not being home has really thrown us off and the house got a little crazy. Yesterday with some extra help we got the house back on the right track. I mean there is still plenty of work to be done but it’s manageable now. So know that when I write posts on Laundry tips and organizing tips that they are coming from someone who needs them herself so they are tested by a messy house so they work.
It’s my mission to get this part of our lives under control though and find a cleaning routine and process that works for our family. I want us to get to a place where we can be proud of our home and that when life gets crazy it doesn’t through us off and get us off track.
So there’s my person post and a confession. Let me know in the comments if you are cleaning type person or more messy and if you’ve got any tips send them my way!
