You know here is an idea. The first time through I could not for the life of me keep my sink clean. So I made my bed the sink (well, not the sink, but the sink
). I got up every morning and made my bed. I put the decorative pillows on, smoothed the covers and then picked up all the laundry and any cups from the night before on my way to the kitchen, which is where the laundry room is. It was SO mcuh easier than the sink-no one would leave dishes in my bed, no one would think my bed was the garbage can, I didn't need to handle it 3 times a day or more. It was a much easier launching point. AND it is way easier to avoid those pesky midday naps when the bed is made
So, maybe that would be an easier place to start?
I don't know why I stopped. I guess today is as good of day as any to start again.
