fall cleaning
posted by soe 3:39 am

Nothing can possibly be more dull than a blog post on cleaning. Even one on dentistry has the potential to drift into the horror genre…

And, yet, here we are.

The cleaning/organizing/mass purging is going slowly. Far too slowly, in fact.

Under the best of circumstances I am deadline driven. This means that I work better — and faster — the closer we get to when things need to be done. The day of my tree trimming, I will be a model of efficiency. Two weeks out, though, and I’m having a hard time finding the motivation. All I want to do is sleep and knit and read.

Sorting through papers I’ve allowed to pile up and clothes and books I need to shift out of the house is not my idea of a fun way to spend a Saturday evening…

So, I turn to you, dear readers. What is your best tip for fall cleaning? Or your secret to staying motivated on mundane tasks? I’m desperate for suggestions because I really do know that procrastination and last minute efficiency are not my friends, at least in this instance.
