so today I didn’t have to work, at my paying job anyway, so I cleaned parts of my house. I finally got the damned kitchen in somewhat good shape. The dishes are mostly done, floor is swept and mopped and the table is wiped down. The baby highchair is cleaned up but we’ve gotta throw that gross thing out. After two kids, it’s just ruined. I also got the hallway and the living room floors done. Yay me!
Oh and I got some laundry started.
yes, real exciting stuff here, I know. but you see I’ve got a plan for this year. Let’s not call it a resolution, it’s just a plan. And lucky you (er, I mean no one…) get to read all about it! So yeah, I’ve gotta get my house under control. I’m so lazy and let a lot slide but then I walk around this place and want to pull my hair out because it’s just so messy and distracting! So I typed up a cleaning schedule. I am realistic enough to realize I won’t hit all the daily, 3x a week, monthly and quarterly tasks but it does help me to have it written down with the expectation that I’ll hit most of those tasks.
also in the plan is our financial goals. Get outta debt, save, and eventually buy a house. Pretty standard stuff there. I’ve got to make us stick to this plan. I hate not having any fucking money because it all goes to credit cards, car payments and my student loan. garrrr, enough. We make enough each month that we shouldn’t be struggling but yet every damn month I’m left trying to figure out how to make our paychecks stretch.
so yeah, this is a year of change.
Last year was the year of the Autism Diagnosis (I’ll write about that later, too much to type up tonight.) This year will be getting our financial and our literal houses in order. oh and we should probably work on our marriage and parenting as well, but those tend to be works in progress every day, every year anyway.
