I hate housework, ok I said it! I am pretty neat and organized in my household and love a clean house, I just hate to clean it myself! Let me rephrase that, I don't hate to clean, I just hate to stop what I am doing in my art studio to go and clean. And then there's the obsessive side of me that has to stick with a project until it gets done, which is good in some ways but not when it comes to taking care of kids and DH. I mean Dinner is at 6 and it usually happens right when I'm on a roll with something I am doing with my ebay store or a project that has a deadline! And the dust bunnies will come and visit if I turn my back!! And as much as I love my dog, she has thick black hair that just falls off everywhere!
So I tried something different today and I think it might be my answer! I started by setting my timer for 15 minutes. I checked my emails and ebay business , answered questions and visited my online groups. When the timer went off, I stopped and did the laundry and changed all the sheets. timer went off and went back and photographed new items for ebay, played with my doggie and timer went off and swept and mopped floors, hey I like this! And I have a loud timer, that makes sure I hear the tick tock and motivates me to get the job done! I am amazed at what I was able to do in 15 mins ! So if you're like me and hate housework, try the timer, let me know how it works! xxoo Astrid
