A Sidetracked Home Executive?
Well, admittedly, I am. And that is why these past days I’m focusing my attention on our household system and re-thinking of ways to improve it. I am actually re-reading Sink Reflections by Marla Cilley and hoping to find the book Sidetracked Home Executive by Pam Young and Peggy Jones. There are tons of organizing and decluttering books out there to inform and motivate me, but I don’t know where to start. So I’m giving Mary, Pam and Peggy a try.
The number one reason why I am a Sidetracked Home Executive is because of the time spent in aimless net surfing. My mind becomes overstimulated with information and other stuff that I become bored and inattentive with my household duties.
Aside from blogging, I have three Facebook groups that I created, for fascinating wives, amazing couples pasig and mom bloggers. So I am making a resolve on visiting Facebook purposefully one hour a day. Coz really, FB can be a major distraction if not used properly.
Also I decided to open my laptop every afternoon and evening only. But the challenge is, my hubby’s desktop in our living room is always open.
If you will come by our house, it is full of clutters caused by my toddler and hubby. And not only that, there are piles of soiled and clean, unfolded laundry inside the other room. Now, can you imagine how our house look like?
I may actually not have you at home because I’m living in CHAOS. Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome. So this past few days I cut my use of internet time and spent it reading Sink Reflections to motivate me and started decluttering as well.
I know you might suggest that I get a house help. But knowing myself, I have difficulty giving instructions and ordering people if I myself is not willing to do it. Thus, I will just fail to lead my maid. You know what they say, a blind cannot lead a blind.
I did have two helpers in a span of two years. They caused me headaches, I don’t know how to deal with helpers. In time, when I get enough knowledge, standard and discipline, I will get us one.
So I hope that through sharing with you these things, I will be more motivated on my housekeeping journey. I also hope to share in this blog a system that has worked for me. So it’s time to control my being a SHE.
So What About You
Are you a SHE? If so, what’s keeping you distracted?
And if not, share your secret…
