I've been told that I have a song for everything...looking over some of my blog posts, I'm starting to see that might be true.
I was talking with a friend a couple weeks ago about our homes...and keeping them clean...and how it is so hard. The clutter...it is everywhere! I have another friend whose house is always beautiful. It could be featured in a Pottery Barn ad tomorrow and her house would be ready to go! I asked her what her secret is. She said that her husband has a chore that he does every morning before work and that she works to make sure messes made each day get cleaned up that day (getting her kids to help). This made me think maybe I could have a clean house too. Come on, stop laughing, it might be possible! Okay, I'll be honest, I'm skeptical. But I'm going to try.
My first hurtle is going to be getting the house there to begin with. This is going to take some time. I have a tendency to hang on to things "just in case" someone needs it later.
So, here's my plan:
It will be an interesting project. As Mary Poppins says: "In every bit of work to be done there is an element of fun. You find that fun and, snap! The job's a game!" Who else has done a similar project? Any tips you have for me?? I'll have to let you know how it goes!

I imagined that I would be like June Cleaver, only work outside the house and maybe get caught vacuuming in heels and pearls a little less often. Turns out I'm a little more like a mix of June Cleaver and Frankie Heck...most days it feels like I've got more Frankie going on than June. I'm definitely a work in progress. :)
