I've mentioned that top of my list of resolutions this year is to be better at keeping a clean and orderly home for my family. We're hardly living in "Hoarders" style filth but this is still one area I definitely feel needs some improvement.
I've learned that I can get much more cleaning and organizing done when I have some great music in the background. I sat down to find some fresh tunes for a cleaning-specific playlist and my twisted sense of humor got the best of me.
The inspiration for this whole playlist is "Happy Working Song" from Disney's "Enchanted." If you haven't seen the movie, you might want to watch as the video plays on the iPod below. I hope you'll use your imagination to picture me cleaning my house with a tiara and full blown ball gown because I laughed hard enough this evening at that image that I just might try it.
That got me thinking, most of the Disney princesses have a song that either they or their little animal friends sing about cleaning up. How did I miss this crucial lesson in my tender years?! Guess I was too busy waiting for the prince to show up and whisk me away from my mop.
So, I hope this silly little playlist helps motivate you on your own tasks during this fresh start time of year. I couldn't help but add a fresh Disney song from "Princess and the Frog". It isn't so very much about cleaning, but I know it will help me shake my tooshie as I push that vacuum through the living room this afternoon.
