This isn’t anything new for the LDS readers of my blog, but for others I know that often Sunday is your big work day at your house.
And I’d ask you to stop.
I think it is SO refreshing to have a day off. I will confess that I do a 10 minute tidy, if not I find Mondays overwhelming, and I try to do a 5 minute one before bed also (or, Drew does — he’s pretty darn good at that!). But, there’s no organizing, there’s no worrying that things aren’t perfect.
Because Sunday is about God and family for me, and I like to keep it that way.
If you feel overwhelmed by your life, I’d suggest you consider making Sunday a time to relax and really re-connect with your family. Take that time to play a game or watch a movie together. You’ll be glad you did.
*My hope is that this weekly cleaning schedule might inspire you to make your own. I know my own OCD schedule won’t work for everyone, but I really think that cleaning schedules helps you stay on top of your life without being overwhelmed with all of you have to do.
