I survived the worst arsenic hour yesterday. Well, when I say hour, it was more like 4 hours and when I say survive, I mean only just. What didn’t surive was the house. It was already looking less than pristine pre-arsenic hour but I was just too frazzled/upset/tired to restore order yesterday. So this morning I woke to an awful mess.
I thought today I would share with you my first step to restoring order.
I grab a garbage bag and laundry basket and start at the front of the house. As I move from room to room I throw out rubbish and put items that need to be returned elsewhere into the basket. While in the room I straighten obvious items like pillows, blinds and furniture. Before leaving the room I check to see if there is anything in the basket that needs to be returned to its place.
This simple task makes a huge difference. If I only do this I feel heaps better about the state of the house.
So now with that done, I can get down to the nitty gritty……If only that was as simple!
