I started small. I made a list. It is long. There’s a lot to do. And I didn’t even start listing all the improvements/fixes that need doing. This is just the list of things that need to be cleaned or reorganized. And every room has at least three tasks. My bedroom needs the most work. It’s always bad when we have a baby sharing the room with us. Usually I make some improvements when they move out and then it goes back downhill when we have a new one. I wouldn’t change the sleeping arrangements but it does make it hard to put things in their proper place every night when the baby is sleeping there.
Anyway, the list is the small start. Each item on the list may actually be broken down to multiple tasks if they are too daunting in their entirety. One little thing at a time.
