Starting Anew

I’m currently lying in bed, praying for a good nights rest. It’s less than 1.5 hours until the next year is here. I’m going to miss the typical ball drop if the sleep fairy comes soon, and believe it or not, I’m pretty excited about it. 

Like many, I’ve thought about how to make this coming year better than the past. While I have some of the typical “resolutions” such as lose weight, be healthier, more positive… I am am going to try to take care of myself more AND my home. 

I’m unorganized y’all. I don’t know how people do it. It being a tidy house and still do other things with their day. I wish I was better. This housewife ain’t winning any awards on cleanest house or anything like that. However, as I get older, my desire to be organized and cleaner and less cluttered and grown and grown. This, this has become my main goal. 

I have some anxiety and depression issues and often when things get super cluttered or messy, I get overwhelmed!! It’s hard to get started. I put it off longer because of the anxiety of starting. It’s a rough cycle.

I tend to procrastinate and sometimes I lack follow through… (but I’m still pretty awesome most days). This year I am going to be trying to get past that. I want my kid (and possible future children) to remember a clean home and learn HOW to maintain it. 

I looked up a few “chore lists” on Pinterest (the land of diy and improvement) and I’m hoping that will get me moving in the right direction. 

What are your tips on a tidy home? Any secrets?
