I think I'm the queen of procrastinating. Yesterday we had a family party. I had all week to get ready for it. I thought I can take each day to clean. With a new baby it's hard to clean everything all in one day.

So I thought Monday I'll clean the bathroom, Tuesday the family room, etc. But then my brain starts thinking...I'll have to re-clean everything again because the kids will either mess it up or the bathroom will need to be re-cleaned. So I put off doing it.

What I should have told my brain was: I can still clean a room a day and then on Saturday I'll I will need to do is "Little touch-ups"!!!!!

I am really good at crash cleaning. Cleaning everything in one day. Being under pressure really gets me going. The only thing I didn't take into account was I have a three month old that's not going to let me do it.

So I was up late on Saturday still trying to get everything finished cleaning, cooking 2 breakfast casseroles and setting up tables and everything.

I need to figure out a way to kick my procrastination habit in the butt!!


  1. I totally relate to this! :)

    Visiting from SITS!

  2. "Crash cleaning" is a great phrase! I do that, too.

    Hey, thanks for visiting my sit lat week when I was featured on SITS!

  3. I "crash clean" too! However, you can ALWAYS enlist the older kids to help out too.

  4. If you find the way. . .let me know. . I'm having trouble too!
