|Viva la Reformation|
For the whole period of Lent I will clean (at least) ONE thing every day. This is will require a sacrifice of my free time and force me to do something I normally avoid. I'm not going to cheat and just clean one tiny thing and call it a day, and normal cleaning (like laundry and dishes) doesn't count. I'll count things like mopping the kitchen floor, cleaning one of our 4 bathrooms, vacuuming, etc. Those are all things I avoid doing until it gets nasty. Honestly, I only really do dishes and laundry because I can't avoid it and to be completely truthful, my husband does more than half the laundry anyway. Apparently, I don't fold his shirts as nicely as he does. Anyone else out there with a husband who likes their T-shirts folded into tight little rectangles?
I'm also going to count de-cluttering as cleaning. I am the worst person about just putting something down on the counter and leaving it there for months. I'd probably save so much money if I'd actually remember to take coupons off the counter instead of leaving them there until they expire. If my husband came home and saw a cleared top on the island in the kitchen, I think he'd have to sit down from the shock.
I won't count remembering to turn on the Roomba as cleaning. :) Seriously, you pet owners out there, you'd love this thing. I should add daily brushing of the dog with the FURminator to my Lenten pledge. The dog and I agree that it's not a fun process, but it does make a difference in the amount of dog hair floating around.
So anyone is welcome to join me on pledging to give up something or add something for 40 days, even if you're not Christian or religious at all!
I can see into the future and I know that on Sunday after my marathon, whatever I clean won't require me to bend my knees or go up and down the stairs. :)

What would the hardest thing for you to give up (or add in) for 40 days?
