One of the biggest things I have struggled with since having Lucy is cleaning my house. If you knew me before Lucy, you would know I always had a clean house. Things were never piled up anywhere, my laundry basket was always manageable and lord knows my closets were never over flowing with stuff.
Post Lucy, I struggle. My biggest problem is everything feels overwhelming. I can't multi-task like I used to and I can't even make a list because I can't prioritize things like a normal person. It's actually kind of annoying all of the things I can't do and some of them I'm not sure how to explain it, but I know I'm not firing on all cylinders anymore.
But I decided that if I take on small projects, one at a time, I won't be overwhelmed. Like a moron, I started with Olivia's room. I won't put it all out there, but I've decided my kids are hoarders, but Olivia is by far the worst. I can't even tell you how much junk came out of her room, but it was a lot. I spent hours in there but it was worth it.
Thankfully Jackson's wasn't near as bad. His problem was he had all of his Christmas gifts stacked up and needed help organizing things, which wasn't that bad actually.
Both rooms turned out to be an entire day of cleaning, so probably not the best project to start with, but it's a start. My goal is to get our room cleaned out and painted this spring, but we'll see. I have so many other things to clean out and purge things from before then so I realistically might not get to it. We have had a couple of days of warmer than normal weather for our winter season so I'm in the mood to start spring cleaning. I guess on the bright side by the time it actually is spring, I'll be able to enjoy it, right?
