Last night I went to bed super late again. The house was a mess, like always. I didnt want to go to sleep and wake up to a mess of a house. So I got to work and finally settled down to sleep at 1 something a.m.
My dilemma is that during the day I have no motivation to clean the house, and somehow, at night (and this is not every night, just about 3 or 4 times a week) is when the inspiration comes to have a clean house. If I lay down without cleaning when the cleaning bug gets in me, I just lay there thinking and thinking and dont sleep until 2 or 3 a.m. I need to learn to delegate with my children, they are 5 and 2. and oh can they mess up a home in no time! They pull out stuff from the tv stand. They cover the entire floor with toys, clothes, shoes, papers, crayons, you name it, they bring it. So, I will keep on organizing and hopefully along the way my kids will learn to be tidy without me yelling at them.
I do believe that a neat home/environment invites clear thinking, creative thinking.
I have a friend who is a master at this. Her name is Gail M. She is an inspiration to me. Maybe she can send us some tips on how to tame wild children so the house will stay tidy.
I just read about a girl who when at home, she hears noises (paranormal type activities). She is pregnant at the moment and has a little girl about 18 months old. She wrote she was folding clothes and felt the presence of a little kid right by her. When she looked around she saw no one but kept feeling the same presence. Then she said, from the corner of her eye, she thought she saw a little kid standing in the doorway, but when she looked again, no one was there. Her little girl had been napping in another part of the house. Then, at night, her and her husband found a toy in the middle of the floor one was around the toy. This is quite freaky. I dont want any of that happening at my place, specially this week. Thankfully, the haunted friends have a very good attitude towards this incident. They have name the child ghost "Rockwell" I can picture the child looking like the painting of Norman Rockwell, very sweet and innocent.....I hope the ghost is all that.....boooooooooohooooooooooooooo.
