This happened last weekend!!
Saturday was my husband’s birthday and what better way to spend it than with friends and family riding in the snow in beautiful North Idaho. It was a blast! We are beyond blessed that we can do this practically in our backyard.
The sun was bright, the air was clear and chilly but when we stopped for breaks it was comfortable in just a sweatshirt. There was still plenty of snow to make it fun! It was thrilling and our need for nature therapy has been met for now!
When we came home our house was clean and welcoming because we did our morning habits. We changed into comfortable clothes, started a fire in the fireplace and grilled steak for dinner. Hubby said it was one of the best birthdays he has ever had. WIN!
Those little habits can make your weekend seem like a vacation! Isn’t that what a weekend is supposed to be? It is a break from work. A time to enjoy life, enjoy and spend time with family and friends. A time for memory making and forming bonds. I don’t want you to be a slave to your house and your laundry. I guarantee that you can have a clean and relaxing house to come home to and be able to spend time on the weekends doing the things you love if you begin to establish small habits.
It is easy to make “house cleaning” a HUGE deal in our minds. A massive undertaking. We have to have six hours, twenty different cleaners, the right frame of mind, no make-up, sweats and rubber gloves and do it all at once. This drudgery is overwhelming and discouraging even before you start. I prefer “housekeeping”. Keeping your house clean rather than ruining every other Saturday scrubbing and having your house look crummy two days after all that effort and will until the next scouring session.
Housekeeping is a string of continuous small habits that are short, easy and almost unconscious. Housekeeping frees you to have weekends that are vacations rather than days of backbreaking, unappreciated work. It allows you to come home to your own bed and breakfast and feel peace and rest.
It is my passion to free mom’s and dad’s to spend more time with their kids making memories and husbands and wives to be able to do the fun things and even single people to be able enjoy life! I want to free all of you from “housecleaning”. I want everyone to able to enjoy a peaceful clean, organized and welcoming home and enjoying doing the things you love!
So, who is up for a challenge?! For the next week do these simple habits every day and see what happens! I would love to hear from you! Are you ready for a self-cleaning house?
- Make your bed every day
- Clean your bathroom every morning
- Empty the dishwasher and put out a clean dish towel and dish cloth
- Take out the trash
- Start a load of laundry and put away the clothes in the dryer
- Be proud of your home!
Do your habits, make memories and enjoy your weekend!
