Yes, I am rather optimistic in putting this up. But it’s been a month since I posted a cleaning zone post and I’m hoping that by posting this it might force me into actually achieving something.
As I mentioned yesterday I am still so overwhelmed by everything at the moment. I have to-do lists for everything (general, blog, study, cleaning) and they just keep getting longer instead of smaller.
I’ve gone and added a “quick course” in QuickBooks – 2 lessons a week online for 8 weeks plus a final exam. The course was free with my other course but I still had to buy the software. Luckily, it’s software I should be able to use for myself for the future, for keeping track of my income from on here plus even just the household budget. But of course, it means more work for me.
Mr Monkey is working LOTS which means I’m looking after both girls all day and all evening by myself for most of the week. When he’s home he’s using the laptop to finish his menus which means I can’t do my assignment, lessons or blogging when he’s doing that. We’re looking at getting him his own laptop but that may be a little while.
The house is in constant mess and I can’t seem to get on top of it. If I spend the day doing housework I’m too exhausted by the time it comes to sit down and study or blog. And vice versa.
Lily has school on Fridays which gives me a little bit of a break but Chloe is teething at the moment (2 teeth already with another 2 looking like they’re about to cut!) and that isn’t very conducive to good study.
But I’m going to attempt to at least get the kitchen clean – if I can focus on just getting this room clean hopefully I can maintain it and get the bathroom clean next week. I can only try anyway.
