So, Fernando and I were talking about how we need to get the house cleaned.
We are both lazy asses. We both hate cleaning. We’ll do it, but it’s never with a smile on our face. I’m ok once I get started but it’s really having the will power to get started that eats at me. I think it’s the same with Fernando.
This… Is our kitchen… well, only half of it:
Let me tell you something… This picture… does not do it justice. It LOOKS ok, but I can tell you half of the stuff has been washed out by the light coming from the window.
So, one day I was scrolling through Tumblr and I found a post about someone “unfucking” their bedroom (yeeeeeeeeeah, that’s going to take the longest for me). So today I googled “Unfucking your house” and found Unfuck Your Habitat (opens in new window) and had a sigh of relief that I wasn’t the only one that had a horrible habitat, that there were other people out there that were just as lazy to get things done.
But what really got me interested were the before and after photos! Working in small segments of 20/10 (twenty minutes of work followed by ten minutes of rest) got the job done for them! See, I always knew that working in segments helps things get done. I just have a problem with stopping, getting frustrated, and end up letting it all go to hell. Also when I take a break, I tend to lose the drive of continuing.
But if these other people that have the same will power as me can do it, why can’t I and Fernando?
So here is my after photo after 7 times of 20/10 with the dishes:
Not completely clean per se, but is a hell of a lot better than all the dishes piled up! Everything that is behind the jug of water is clean, as are the utensils to the right. I have to find and kill the mice that are running through my cabinets first before I can safely put up the spoons, forks, knives, and cooking utensils.
Just doing this took me over two hours to do!
Since I’m a bit burnt out of cleaning dishes, I think I’ll start with unfucking my computer desk:
And after 1 time of 20/10, here’s the result!:
