C.H.A.O.S(Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome)

C.H.A.O.S,  or what Flylady calls Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome, has pretty much been a constant in my life. It is when your house is in such a state that you don’t want anyone to see it. Never mind that your self and the ones you love the most live in it, but that is a thought for another day.

Yesterday I realized that people would be coming over for Halloween. Normally, I clean like a banshee, a lot of stashing and dashing, flitting from one task, and then another…and then fall into an exhausted heap just as the doorbell rings.

Well, yesterday, I worked in increments and took breaks. Perfectionism did rise up, but I could actually see that I was making progress. I just decided to work on the important tasks first.

My husband commented that it sure looked nice, and my response was a scowl, but again, we will work on that another time.
