When I was a child, I would help my mom clean all of the time.
She taught me so much about how to keep a household clean while having little ones around.
I must not have listened to her as closely as I should have because I cannot seem to keep anything clean with my three boys around. I used to love to get up and clean the house every morning before the boys woke up, but now that they are older, they go to bed later, and I stay up later as well which makes getting up early very difficult for me. Something that I had neglected to clean for quite some time was our garage. We moved houses about two years ago, and most of our stuff was just in piles in the garage, and it drove me crazy. I finally decided to clean out the garage one day, but it was way too cold in there. It had to have been below thirty-five degrees in there. Our garage is not heated, and it is not attached to the house, so I had to figure out a way to heat it. I went up to the attic and found some old space heaters that we used at our old house during the winter months. I also took the one that was in our entryway, so I had three space heaters, and I set them all on high to try and heat the garage. To my surprise, the garage did heat up quite a bit. It was still probably only about fifty-five degrees in there, but that was perfect for me while I was working. I am so glad that I was finally able to clean that messy garage of ours.
