ADHD Cleaning House

This is what happens when a person with ADHD "cleans house". Not that it was perfect before I started, but it looked a LOT better than this!

I do this quite frequently. I begin one project which somehow morphs into another. And another. And another... You get the idea.

Yesterday was supposed to be house cleaning day.
This is how it looked this morning.

I thought it made sense to switch our decor from
winter to spring since I was going to be cleaning.
Not a bad plan, really.

THEN, when I was putting a few books away in the library
I thought I'd pull some books off the shelves that I want to sell
in a homeschoolers' used book sale next month.

So now there are books stacked everywhere around my home
because I wasn't content to leave the mess in just the library.

Books need to be boxed so we've got boxes everywhere too.

Here's the mess from taking the winter display down from
my china hutch in the dining area.

We can't leave the living room out of my destructive path, can we?

Guess what I'm doing today? It may take all day but I've got to restore order to our home. Preferably before my husband gets back from the cabin later this morning. Time to finish my breakfast, get off the computer and get to work!

This is hilarious! I think we've all been there at one time or another. You'll get it all done, no doubt and your home and family will be richly blessed!

By the last picture, I was LAUGHING! I am just disgusted because yesterday we just messed up what was a clean house by attempting to unload a few more boxes from our storage "casita" on our property....right into the house.....right in the path of the doorway from the outdoors through our schoolroom.....which meant the laundry didn't get folded....which ended up on the floor of our bedroom. But, there will be no pictures, and I will be working right alongside you! Thanks for sharing the fun!

Hmmmmm....I seem to work this way too! But, it all does get done in the end.

Will you come to our apartment now? I promise it's a lot smaller than your house and REALLY needs some spring cleaning!
