Lesson #4: Cleaning
It took me a few days to establish a daily cleaning routine, but by the end of the first week I had it down. I'm an early riser, so every morning I take fifteen minutes to wipe off, pick up, and put away. This means that I walk out the door leaving a house that is clean and ready for anyone who walks through the door.
And that includes me.
Yes, an unexpected benefit to this daily routine is that I get to enjoy it too! It is a pleasure to come home at the end of the day to a home that is clean and tidy--what a treat. I used to save cleaning house for the weekend, but now a few minutes each morning actually saves me time; the weekends aren't spent cleaning house, or feeling guilty because I'm not.
