{ return of the cleaning schedule }

life has been a little hectic since before i got pregnant.
so i feel like it has been 18  19  20+ weeks since my life was in order.

it has been that long since i followed a cleaning schedule or a meal plan.
it has been that long since i had a predictable prayer life.
it has been that long since i brought a list to the supermarket. 
let's be honest, it's been that long since i've been up before 9am.

i miss order, routine, predictability. 
it brings so much peace into my life.
lately, the focus has been... simply making it through the day.

but i'm starting to feel more and more like myself.
a pregnant version of myself but a version nonetheless.

i'll take it.

since i'm feeling more like myself 
i decided to print my old cleaning schedule
i know i need to tweak it but i'm giving it a try so i can decide what changes to make.

i figured i'd share it and report the results later on.

How do I keep my house clean?! Hmmm. I let it get super messy until my husband can't stand it anymore then I spend a day cleaning. I may have to borrow your plan :) it will probably work much better than mine!

A few things on your list struck me- Wash garbage cans and change sheets weekly. I guess you should never inspect my cans or sleep in my kids beds :) So inspiring! Ill try some of these!!

I almost skipped over this post for fear of the anxiety it would might give me to think about how much I should be cleaning! But this is a great plan!
