Maintain

Why is it so hard sometimes for me to maintain? What I mean by that is... well, for example: I have a large L-shaped desk where I spend the majority of my time. I feel like I am cleaning it up all the time, and yet I also feel like it is always a mess. The same thing goes for my closet and my bathroom. I just cannot seem to get them super clean and then maintain that level of clean for any significant amount of time.

G and I recently spent a couple of hours seriously cleaning out our kitchen. Our counters were so cluttered, so we put away anything that we haven't used recently (like the coffee pot). We scrubbed the counters and the floors, wiped every little thing down and had everything neatly organized. I think that was almost 2 weeks ago? Maybe a week and a half. Anyway, we have managed to keep it just as clean. I need to mop the floors again, which I probably should have already done once since the big clean, but at least it looks great in there overall.

Now, if I can just carry that same philosophy on to my other spaces. The other evening, we were on the computers and I felt a tickling on my arm. I looked down and there was a huge spider crawling on me! I have no idea where he came from! Without thinking, I batted him away from me. I couldn't see where he went though, and with all the papers and pens and books on my desk, he could have been hiding anywhere!! After getting out a flashlight and moving things around, we finally gave up looking for him. In the interest of that NEVER happening again, I got serious last night about cleaning up my desk and getting rid of all the clutter. I organized my notebooks and my books, dusted everything and left only the basic necessities out... and three cups full of pens, but those ARE necessities! Now, let's just hope I can keep it this way for an extended period of time.
