It’s true! There are certain things we all deal with that can really be a personal struggle. You wanna know mine? Keeping a consistently clean house!
It would be nice to maybe some day have a housekeeper, but until that day arrives, I’ve got my own two hands. Well, I guess I do have the helping hands of my husband (who is excellent at laundry maintenance!) and my 3 little girls who are learning how to work along side the Mama.
Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook was an AMAZING read, but I just don’t have time for all those details!
Fly Lady – I could never remember what I was supposed to do and felt a bit behind everyday since I don’t like to tie up my shoes every morning, ’cause I prefer bare feet or flip flops.
If you have found either of these resources helpful, I’m not doggin’ them, they just didn’t work for me.
Life keeps getting busier for me and honestly in an answer to prayer, a Friend (Thank You Julie!) shared with me….
THE CREATION PLAN!
This is something I understand! I know exactly what I need to do each day because it relates to me and I find purpose in the plan.
Betty Meyers wrote this book back in 1984. It is currently out of print, though I really wish they would re-print it! Basically each day of the week has a THEME that is associated with the Judeo-Christian view of the creation of the world. There is plenty more detail, but for copyright infringement, I don’t know how I much can really share. So, you’ll have to go find your own copy with Amazon’s booksellers. I have made a basic outline of the plan and am offering it as a Free Download for you. (You can find more Free Downloads HERE)
WHY THIS WORKS FOR ME
Pretty simple, it takes the guilt out of housecleaning.
I used to feel so guilty for all that didn’t get done. Now, I have a plan that works for me and if something doesn’t get done one day of the week, no stress, the same day will come around the following week where that can take priority.
Also, all those deep cleaning chores that don’t get done on a regular basis, no worries, each week of the month has a special focus, so over the course of the entire month, you are getting it ALL done!
She also has a wonderful approach to attacking those major projects that are just TOO big to tackle in one day.
So, am I perfect at this plan?
Is my house cleaner.
If you like this plan too, then let’s make a fuss about it and get it re-printed to help every woman find inner peace in housekeeping.:)
Ahhh….now I can go make myself a Brazilian Lemonade.
