Maybe this will help

 I have got to be the worlds worst organizer, planner and any other "er" that is associated with the two.  Whenever I try to clean the house, I get overwhelmed by the time I finish the first room and I give up.  Cleaning the entire house is such a big task to do all at once, at least for me.  In my attempt to help myself out with cleaning my house, I broke down the main chores and gave each chore an assigned day.  Kinda like I would for my child...except I am making it for myself (how sad is that???)  Here's to seeing if this works!  Anyone wanna try with me?  Maybe we can keep each other accountable?!?

My list:

Oh my goodness, I try that same thing AT LEAST once every three months, and I always fail! I also get so overwhelmed when I start to clean, I feel like I don't even know where to begin! I usually just walk around in circles, stopping about every 20 minutes to check my e-mail (aka: procrastinating), and then I give up! Maybe we could keep each other accountable...I am going to clean the living room now!

Gosh, I NEED to do this! In fact, every week I think, "Next week I will start a weekly routine!" And by Monday I've forgotten it already. :) Maybe this will help me remember (if not, mention it to me on Sunday!) :)

Its a fabulous idea to break it down like that!

I have to do that too -- even if I don't stick to it, I still keep up better if I make a list and have it handy to keep me close to on top of things! I lost the one I had before moving... just made a new one last night!
