Take the ‘clean-sink challenge’
Today, y’all don’t get to just relax and read this post. I am giving a call to action!
Last summer, I read the book “Sink Reflections” by Marla Cilley.
In her book, Marla offers helpful ideas on how to we can better manage our homes and lives so we aren’t constantly overwhelmed by daily responsibilities. One of Marla’s “baby steps” includes developing a routine of cleaning our kitchen sinks before we go to bed each night.
I have to admit, I have fallen off the wagon with this “baby step” and I want to get back in the habit! It is amazing how much more in control I feel and how much less anxiety I experience when I am greeted by a clean kitchen sink in the morning.
When you wake up to a sink full of dirty dishes, how do you feel? Maybe it doesn’t bother you, but it’s giving me the hives. (I’ve told you I’m not normal.)
So I am challenging myself (and all of you) to a seven-day, clean-sink challenge. For a whole week (starting tomorrow), I am not going to bed until my sink is empty and spotless.
And because misery a clean sink loves company, I’m offering a prize to one lucky LROL reader who agrees to join me in the challenge. If you’re up to it, leave me a comment (with this post) stating you are participating in the “seven-day, clean-sink challenge” and then tell me what baby step you’ve taken this year to improve your life.
On Tuesday, May 29, I’ll pick my favorite comment (I give bonus points for humor and inspiration, by the way) and the winner will get this cute set to go along with his/her clean sink:
