We are currently on our 7th week in doors as a family having quarantined ourselves 2 weeks prior to South Africa's national lockdown. Not easy with 2 toddlers, 2 Great Danes, and a husband who functions beautifully after an ocean paddle.
Cleaning. Fixing. Repainting. Organising. That's what people are talking about these days. I told my mom in week 2 "If you haven't cleaned out your closet by the end of lockdown, you most probably never ever will". That statement I now retract.
Since I am now in a worse home state than when lockdown actually began, I'm asking my guilty conscience WHY?
Because cleaning out requires extra time. This is something of a great luxury albeit we are indoors for all this time, it doesn't mean we are twiddling our thumbs. Rather we are the parents, teachers, granny, business owners, cleaners (so incredibly grateful to our house help and to Granny, and to school!).
So, I just thought I'd put this forward to all the moms out there finding themselves sitting in the back corner room with three closed doors between yourself and the kids right now "working" as I am. When our kiddies are at school we'll get a bit more done. So let's take it easy until then. Conscience clearing.
I challenge myself to this first...
