For the last two days, Jeff and I have been in a sort-of "funk" where we are noticing every speck of dirt, dust, and grime in our 96 year old house and feeling like it is totally disgusting and overwhelming.
We get in these funks about once every six month and promptly decide to move. Too bad the last time we just threw our house on the market without doing one thing to "ready" it wasn't so successful. Ugg.
Then there is the fact that we have a babysitter coming into our house every morning. Oh how I love her (by the way), but I can't let her think we live like pigs.
But, I really don't want to be so focused on chores and cleaning that I don't take advantage of this precious time to be with Sam and
nap do things I really love. So, what's a girl to do?
I've tried weekly cleaning schedules (like this one, currently); but, I'm not sure it is my thing either. I like the feeling of a totally clean house way too much --- Like, I'd rather just spend one whole day cleaning and be able to enjoy the totally clean house for that one night. (Am I crazy?)
I'm leaning towards adopting more of this approach:

But, it stresses me a little too - if I'm being honest - because I'm not cool enough to be into sticky floors.
Tips? Advice? Let'em roll... :)
