The new year is well underway. My house is clean and it will stay that way. I gave up on resolutions years ago – they just are not my thing and I always feel like they are a set up for failure. Resolutions are full of hope, wishful thinking and eventually dashed hope. I do wholeheartedly believe in actionable goals and am definitely setting a few this year. Number one, my house will stay clean and tidy. We have set the kids up with a list of weekly chores (we’ve never done this before, but so far so good!), and I will stay on everyone’s case until picking up after themselves becomes habit. So far everyone is annoyed so it’s a win in my book!
