So, it’s another new year. For me, it brings the realization that I have been a stay-at-home mom for TWO years now! (Um, seriously? Cause I remember writing a post about my first 6 months as a SAHM that I’m pretty sure I never finished. Wasn’t that last week?)
I hate to admit it, but with the upheaval that has been our life in the last two years, I still don’t have any kind of regular schedule or methods in place. Need a refresher? This has been my life since January 2010:
- Quit my job
- Moved to Chattanooga
- Went from being a full-time working mom to a full-time SAHM and part-time freelancer
- Got pregnant three months later
- Had a baby
- Foreclosed on a house
- Moved to a small apartment on-campus at the school where my husband teaches
- Don’t have any family nearby
A little nuts, no?
I am trying to work up the nerve to declare 2012 THE YEAR OF ORGANIZATION.
I am a slob. I would SO much rather sit here click-clacking on my computer than do anything else, and that does present a problem. So if it means I have to set timers and schedule my days in 15-minute increments, I want to change.
If you’re like me, you might be interested in my friend Christine’s e-book Create Your Perfect Cleaning Schedule. Honestly, the Motivated Moms schedule worked pretty well for me
during the very short period I actually adhered to it while we were in our rental house. But living in a different, smaller space, with no outdoor tasks and some unique circumstances, I really need the customized option Christine offers.
(Christine was my friend before blogging, by the way. We worked on the same floor at LifeWay. And she is the most genuinely nice person I’ve ever met. Also so happy sometimes I just want to pinch her … but that’s OK.)
Here’s how Christine describes the book on her site:
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all schedule.
As I began putting together my own cleaning schedule I looked high and low for cleaning templates and guides. You know what I realized? There isn’t a one-size-fits-all schedule. We all have different homes, needs, and expectations when it comes to cleaning.
I’ve put together an easy step-by-step plan for you to create your own cleaning schedule that fits your lifestyle, your preferences, and your family. It will help you Create Your Perfect Cleaning Schedule.
The e-book is really an excellent resource, and right now you can get it for 50% off with the code CLEANNEWYEAR2012, making it a ridiculously affordable $2.98. That code is good until the 7th.
So, anyone ready to make this year THE YEAR OF CLEAN? Or at least, THE YEAR I TRY NOT TO LIVE IN A PIGSTY?
Yes, these are affiliate links. It takes me a lot of time to write this blog and if you’d like to help fund that time in the slightest, I appreciate it. If you’d rather go directly to perfectcleaningschedule.com to buy the book, that’s OK with me too!
