Like you've been sick for almost two week and your husband has been gone and you don't even know where to start! I'm overwhelmed looking at it.

Give me a game plan

Do one room at a time till you've done all of them.  I usually start cleaning in the kitchen and work my way around

Get off of the computer. Pretend it's broken if you have to.

Provide some audio stimulation. No tv. Tv is broken too.

Start in ONE room and FINISH the room. Don't bounce to all the other rooms, because it will guaranteed be more overwhelming. One room, finish the room. Other room, finish that room. Etc.

Start with the kitchen then the bathrooms. Then the rest of the house.

Pick one room to get done today and start. If it doesn't take long then start on another. You never said how big of a mess lol
Oh and music...very loud music!

start from the front door and work back. I always leave my room last to clean so it's almost always cluttered. But I start from front foor, then go to living room, kitchen, bathroom, kids' room, and then lastly my room. I'm actually about to get up and do that now (yay fed holiday giving me day off). Wanna do it w me?

Start with one small area, and time yourself. Say I want to get this specific thing done in 10 minutes, and try to beat the clock. It makes it more fun.

I always do the thing I like doing the most first. That way I can get myself started and hopefully get into a good rhythm.

Like the other poster said... Get off the computer. I know what it's like to be sick and get nothing done, but I know if I need to do something the last place I would be is on the Internet. Maybe start with the kitchen and bathroom(s) first then the easier rooms... Unless its that bad... Just start where ever you are lol. Good luck!
