I Hate Housework!

Hey, everybody! Sorry I haven’t been posting like I originally planned … life sort of got in the way.

I’m here now, though, and will try to start sharing stuff with you more regularly going forward.

Today, I was looking at my neglected home, and thinking about just how unmotivated I get about cleaning. So, instead of buckling down and getting something done, I decided to spend time on YouTube.

What do I find? A video with tips on how to make cleaning easier:

I liked the suggestions here quite a lot. Now I just need to get motivated in the first place!


Hello!  Thanks for stopping by, and welcome to Dorothy’s Dance of Life.

My name is Dorothy (surprise!), and it’s time for my first confession: I can’t dance.  My day-to-day life often feels like a dance, though, between my job, family and precious little “me” time.  If you’re a single Mom like I am, you know what I’m talking about: there’s always something else to deal with.

Fortunately, I have three wonderful children who make it all worthwhile.  They are everything to me.

Why this blog?  I’m always on the lookout for new ways to make my life more manageable, enjoyable and fulfilling, and I think I’ve gotten pretty good at figuring a lot of it out.

In future posts, I’ll be sharing a lot of things I’ve learned (and continue to learn) about making a go of it as a single parent.  This will include everything from cooking to child care to household maintenance and beyond.

Thanks again for stopping in, and come back often to see what I’m up to!
