But what if I don't WANT to clean today?

Ummm...well...don't! :)

Yes, I'm your goofy guide to cleaning, but I understand ALL TOO WELL that there are days when you just can't clean. Maybe you're sick, maybe your children are sick, maybe you're exhausted from the day you had. Life happens - every DAY it happens - and so there are absolutely going to be days when you can't do much more than crawl into bed and pull the covers over your head.

So, if today is one of those days, that's perfectly okay. But, when you do the 3 Step Solution most of the time it means your home is cleaner than it was before. SO, even when you have a pooey day then you won't be surrounded by so much clutter and mess. It's like pooey day insurance, if that makes any sense whatsoever! (Haha - I just wanted to say pooey day insurance, frankly.)

Repeat after me: I'm a Happy Slob, and I'm proud of it. I'm trying my best and that's what counts.

Very good! Now, don't beat yourself up over those days when life feels really tough. Just get back to the good old routine as soon as you can. And don't worry about it. The Happy Slob way of cleaning means you do your best, as often as you can, and you don't stress out the rest of the time. Bravo, dear slobbo!

Does this count even when you just really don't care?? Haha!

Hi Christina,
There's one thing I do everyday even if I don't feel like cleaning.
I make my bed! I feel if nothing else gets done at least I did that.
Love your letters and look forward to reading them.

Great tip, Laurie! I love a nicely made up bed too. :)

:) I guess I should clarify, huh? If we waited until we WANTED to clean, we would probably never do it.

But, I just want everyone to know that when you've had a horrendous day and you really CAN'T clean - well, it's no big deal. We ALL have days like that, right?
