Clean the Fucking House!

Real talk; I hate cleaning. I hate it. I hate it. I HATE it. (I hate it so much that I’m dreading writing this blog post, so it might suck.)┬áMy house is disgusting and I’m living in squalor right now. It’s straight up Roman Hovel in here. It’s gross. We might have chipmunks.

I would insert a picture here but wordpress is being an ass.

Any who! I’ve recently decided that I can no longer live in the squalor that I’ve grown accustomed to, so I had to figure out a way to get me to want to actually clean my house. I can’t just get up and tell myself that’s it’s cleaning time, I have to have something to motivate me. Another problem is that I don’t even know where to start! There is so much shit that needs to be done and I don’t even know what it is that needs to be done! It’s a┬ádisaster!! So I googled what chores needed to be done weekly and made a list of those tasks, and then I divided those tasks up for different days of the week! So here is my cleaning schedule!!

  • Dishes
  • Open windows
  • Sweep and mop floors
  • Vacuum floors

And that’s my cleaning schedule! It’s pretty easy and I feel like I get the work done when I can check it off of a list. Yay/fuck cleaning!
