Kim at Starry Sky Ranch and Susan at High Desert Home have both been blogging about this and so I'm going to try to collect some of their posts as well, for inspiration and reflection.
A couple more details:
- I'm setting up the process in sort of an examen/retreat format. That is, I am looking at every stage of the "journey" in terms of Preparation/Action/Conclusion. For preparation, I try to list a few of the things that seem to be "working" or "not working" in that particular room. For Action, I do the actual tackle. For conclusion, I sum up what I did and think about what might remain to be done.
- I'm trying to decide whether to take pictures! Maybe, maybe not......
- I figured out that with 18 sections in the house (not counting kids' rooms and exterior areas like garage) I can subtract Sundays, Fridays and "town days" from the month and still have 18 days left. Fridays I usually take the kids to homeschool group, and we are trying to limit our "town days" to once a week. Travelling days take a huge amount out of my focus and energy so for now I won't expect myself to do "house and hold" things beyond the essential -- which are maintenance tasks like cooking and laundry, and focus on my family.
