31 Days to Clean Challenge: Week Two {The Failure Confessional}

Homemakers Challenge - 31 Days to Clean

This is the post where I confess my failure to do two-thirds of my 31 Days to Clean challenges. Ugh.

It has been another crazy week under my roof. Sickness struck again, I had to work unexpectedly and my brain has been working overtime on other things. Even though I didn’t complete many Martha challenges, I did get my readings complete.

I think days six and seven were most helpful/eye-opening to me. The Six List” is great advice and it helped me to prioritize my activities and putting them off for less important things (read: it prevented me from being so lazy). However, I did find that making sure I completed them in order–not moving on to the next item until the first was complete–did hinder me in some ways.

I enjoyed Sara Mae’s explanation about frustration being a product of the curse . Makes sense to me!

I’m keeping it short and sweet today because I’m hoping to catch up on all my challenges (and then some). Happy homemaking, everyone!  {UPDATE: I’m all caught up! If you’re behind, don’t give up. It doesn’t take that much time to complete the challenges!}

Did you particpate in the challenge this week? How’d it go? If not, what’s your best tip for avoiding “the lazies” and being more productive?

    I’m a 31 Days [almost] drop-out. I’m going to try to jump back on the wagon today, but considering this day only has 2 and a half hours left in it, it ain’t lookin’ too good today either!
    Working mother of a five yr and 13 month old is ’bout all I’m getting done these days (and my house shows it). I’m not discouraged though, if I can’t complete a task as prescribed in the book I create my own Martha task. : ) How’s that for ad-libbing?
    Good luck with the rest of the days, Megan!
