I am not a naturally clean and tidy person, I have to work at it constantly. I would much rather sink into my sofa for a breather than do one extra chore or task to stay ahead of the mess.
Even when I have worked to build a new housekeeping habit (28 days in a row), I have to battle against my nature to keep fighting the good fight. And honestly, sometimes I lose.
I really do not have much margin in my day at all with nine kids to keep alive, nurture, feed, clothe, and homeschool. And I do NOT want to set aside a 15-minute time block to get it done. All of my time blocks are spoken for, and I’m just not interested in giving up my beauty time or reading time (my only real down time) in order to…..clean.
