Refrigerator: Before

Anyone who has known me for very long will tell you that I am a perfectionist.  Perfectionism has its good and bad angles.  As a perfectionist, I do many things well and give 110% of my effort.  On the other hand, I also procrastinate and often zero in on unimportant details.  A couple days ago I was watching a webcast interview with Lysa Terkeurst, author of “Unglued.”  One thing that Lysa kept saying really stuck with me: “Imperfect progress is still progress.”  As I’ve worked my way through the 30-Day House Cleaning Challenge this month, I’ve made a lot of imperfect progress, but at least I’m still making progress!

Refrigerator: After

Yesterday I had a really busy day, so I didn’t get around to cleaning at all.  Today I decided to go back to Project #18, and clean out the refrigerator and freezer.  As you can see, we have a crazy amount of frozen lemons and bags of breast milk.  We also have two pies that were given to Brad at a men’s luncheon yesterday.  Yummy!  I wiped down every shelf, drawer, and wall in the refrigerator and freezer.  I also managed to drop a bottle of salad dressing on Oliver’s big toe.  Ouch!

Kitchen: Before

Once I was done with the refrigerator, I went back to yesterday’s Project #25 and surface cleaned the rest of the kitchen.  I wiped down most surfaces with a wet rag, Windexed the windows, put away art materials and magnets and toys, and threw the towels in the wash.

  1. I’m keeping a lot of my house up fairly well, but the ‘dining room’ end of my kitchen is still a mess, as is the laundry room, and most of all my spare bedroom/junk room. I’m like you, I tend to procrastinate if I don’t have the time/energy to do the whole thing perfectly, so I just don’t get any of it done. I’ve been reading Crystals’ e-book “21 Days to a More Disciplined Life”, and I think cleaning my junk room will have to be my big 21-day project I work on for that.

      She’s doing a clutter-reducing challenge in May, so I’m thinking of tackling our garage. It just hasn’t been the same since my husband moved his office from across town into our house, and all the office stuff moved into our garage 6 months ago.
