>It’s no secret that I am struggling to keep up with my housework as I continue to work full time and try to manage it ALL.

This is not me folks

Week after week I have found myself beyond frustrated and lets be honest…a little depressed that I just can’t seem to get a handle on things. It’s not that I don’t like to clean or don’t want to, because it really doesn’t bother me. I enjoy taking care of my home. It’s more that I just don’t have time.

Then one day, the heavens opened up and God said “Megan, you are perfectly capable of keeping your home clean, all you need to do is turn off the tv”.

Ooooh.

It’s true that after I come home from work, give lots of love to Emma, and then cook dinner, Chris and I do sit down in front of the TV and enjoy a mindless show or 2.
I’m tellin ya, it’s a waste of time.

After I get home from work, I have a total of 4 hours to get everything done before going to bed. I never thought this before, but that is a lot of time and I know that I can get a lot of stuff done that I used to just leave because I felt like I couldn’t get it done in time.

Another place I looked for some help is FlyLady. She has some great tips for getting a lot of stuff done before you go to bed and when you wake up in the morning that can really help make your life run more smoothly.
Although her schedules and agendas are are not totally realistic for me, I have been able to take a few things here and there and apply them.

Like, for the past couple of days I’ve made sure to make my kitchen spotless before I go to bed and then make sure again that it’s clean before I leave the house for the day. I can’t tell you how big of a great thing this has been for me! The kitchen is my biggest downfall. It is almost never clean. So again, this is big!

I’ve also tried to pick up all the clutter and put it away each night before going to bed. There are other things that I still need to work on, but these little steps are making a world of difference.

I just needed to set my priorities a little better.
