Old habits do die hard. By choice I am lazy. I hate cleaning. I enjoy sitting here in front of my computer. The lazy habit I really must break. I took a day off from doing laundry and wam! I am overrun again because one day off lead to another and another. I am back at it again. I have to install good habits now. I know I can do it. Even as we speak, I have a load in the washer and one in the dryer.
I am going to add another habit to do. This one will make Flylady happy. I am going to have my sink cleaned out every night before bed. I just don't understand HOW it can get so messy when I do not cook every day! I swear there are goblins in this house.
My problem is, I do not see the mess until it becomes overwhelming. When that happens I do not want to touch it because it IS overwhelming. I did not used to be that way. My room was clean when I was younger because I kept it that way. When I was married to my first husband I used to keep the house clean. That might be why I am the way I am now, or at least part of it. I HAD to iron the sheets on the bed, even t shirts and underwear had to be ironed! He would do a dust test. We lived in a desert! There was dust! Glad I am not in that relationship anymore, in more ways than one. It was a very abusive relationship.
So anyway, I have to break old habits and create new ones for the sake of my relationship now and for me. I clean but I just move it around. I have to clean it up for good not just move it to another room or another pile. I keep hauling stuff out and yet it does not get smaller. Paper is a biggie for me. I need to go straight to the paper shredder with the mail. I also need to keep vigilant on shredding all the piles of paper I have created. Ok so I will add 2 new habits.
New habits: wash a load a day, write in journal, clean sink out every night, shred mail daily.
