Hmmm. I've been trying the program (via the sample) the last few days and I'm not sure if it will whip my house into shape, drive me crazy, or both! Here's the thing: I'm messy but a perfectionist (if that makes any sense). So I start doing one thing "vacuum the couches" for example, but then I think: "the vacuum is is out anyway and look at these stairs!" Or I clean and toilet and notice the floor around the toilet... Then the bathroom floor... Then the fact that I need to wash the bathmat... and so on. This would be wonderful- if I had the time! The problem is that I get caught up then I ignore homework (I'm a student), work (I work from home), or worse, DD. Balance is so elusive!
I think that once you do the program for quite a while, you don't find yourself getting distracted anymore by all the jobs undone....because they recently have been done! Try to just do the jobs that are listed unless something is really filthy of course, so you don't get burned out too quickly and give up.
I love that I can do just a few jobs and be done!
I do find myself doing extra small jobs too along the way, but I think that's just life...there is always a bath mat that may need changing, or a hand print on the bathroom mirror despite having cleaned them yesterday, but generally if you do the jobs each week as they come up, nothing ever gets too out of hand.
