I'm Off To Clean The House....I Think

I think that I have ADD when it comes to cleaning my house. It has taken me the live long day to clean a (small) 3 bedroom 1 bath house. I was setting here thinking earlier today why on earth it has took me all day to do a job that should have been an hour or two at most. I started to re-think my day and this is what I have come up with:

1) Woke up at 8:30 and decided that I needed to clean the house today, because well it was starting to bark at me.

2) Keith left for work at 10:00 and it was time to get started, I decided to start with the breakfast dishes. Thought to myself "I think there is some cups in our room, I better go get those"

3) Walked to bedroom and totally got distracted by the un-made bed. While making the bed I saw some clothes in the floor and decided to take them to the laundry room.

4) On the way to the laundry room I noticed Zachary's room and OH DEAR JESUS! I think that is where the barking came from! Well this will never do so I went to go clean his room. While cleaning his room I saw a remote that has been MIA for two days and needed to take that to the living room before I forgot.

5) Got to the living room and set the remote on the coffee table (does anyone know why they are called that because nothing about a coffee table says coffee to me) and noticed that it could use a good dusting! The dusting spray is in the laundry room.

6) You have to go through the kitchen to get to the laundry room, while walking across the kitchen I my Bible Study that I am working on before I go to bed at night, if that is not on my nightstand I will never remember to do it, I better take that to my bedroom before I forget.

7) Walked by Zachary's room and it growled at me. Continued to clean his room, and FINISHED!!! If anyone is keeping count that is 4 started projects and 1 complete. I needed to take that book to the nightstand.

8) Got the book to the night stand, and finished making my bed, actually I finished my room!

Well the WHOLE STINKIN' day went on and on and on and on like this until finally at 6:00 this evening the house was finished! No wonder it took me all day!

What is your weird cleaning quirks?

You COMPLETELY and accurately described EVERY day for me! I'm so glad to know that I'm not alone. I am so easily distracted that it's a wonder I get anything done! Thank you for making me smile!

Hear Hear! We are packing to move TOMORROW, and I walked in tonight and said "I don't even know where to start" (it's almost all done, just the 'leftover crap'). My DH said "Just start on a room and get it done."

I think he was speaking a foreign language.

I feel ya sista. I feel ya.
