Did you notice on the cleaning schedule that there is nothing scheduled for Sundays? It’s important to take a day off. Some weeks you need more than one day off. And that’s ok.
I have already covered why I think it is important to maintain a clean home, but be careful not to let it become an obsession. Give yourself grace when life takes over.
October has been an insanely busy month for my family. As I write, I can see that my family room needs vacuumed. I need to switch laundry over before I go to sleep. I wanted to get some papers filed today. But I am going to bed instead! I worked a long day, and have another one tomorrow. The floor will still need vacuumed tomorrow. The papers will not have moved.
I don’t ever take more than one day in a row off unless something drastic happens. Two days turns into … months for me. But I don’t beat myself up over a day here and there, and neither should you.
