When you have to clean your house, where do you start? Do you have a point of origin? For a good deep cleaning, I have to start in my Master Bathroom.
It's in the upstairs corner of our house, so naturally I feel that this is a good place to start. Now, I only wish that this is what my MB actually looked like, salmon ceramic and all (well, maybe not, but I do adore that anchor rug). Sadly, our bathroom is quite tiny, not much to see. But this is how my mind works - I clean the bathroom, then on to our bedroom, then the boys' rooms, guest bath, kitchen, ending up in the Family Room. A path to cleanliness, my own little adventure in cleaning travels.
This little plan of mine has it's drawbacks. Obviously, I don't always get to take the time to clean every room in my house in one go. I have to settle on cleaning the main living areas of the house - the Kitchen, Family Room, etc. I sincerely hope that I'm not the only woman who feels like she doesn't travel the cleaning highway as much as she would like. I do try! Life gets in the way and our fairytale schedules go out the window. And it affects everything! I will get inspired to go create something, but my crafting dreams get cut short when I think about all the other things that should be done first and I ALWAYS end up at the Master Bathroom. Everything comes down to that. Create = clean off art table = clean up basement = clean house = start in the Master Bathroom.
So what am I doing about it? I am doing a deep clean of my house and I am at the starting line. I cleaned out my bathroom drawers today, a daunting task that involved some high-pitched, "Oh, I do have a nail file!" and "why do I have so many bobby pins?". I have much more to do (Cole is napping, thus I am taking a blogging break), but it's official - I am on a mission to get my house in order. I will whip this house into shape so that when I have the desire to go down to my art table and create something, I can actually produce something! Not just a sparkling clean Master Bathroom.
