I came home tonight with groceries and after being gone all day, it was so nice to walk into my clean house and sit down and relax. I was so thankful that before heading out to meet our friends today, I took about 30 minutes to unload the dishwasher, wipe down the counters and do a load of laundry. I used to have an "I'll do it later" attitude but I have finally figured out, if I let one mess sit for any length of time, that one mess turns into two. Then that turns into a whole house full of mess!!
So I'm trying to stay on top of things better and it really is making a difference in how I feel about life. I am able to fully focus on other things without that nagging feeling that I am behind on life because my house is a mess. I have lived with that feeling a lot and it's not fun.
And to answer a question, no, those last two pictures were not my house but this one is! :) I grabbed those other two online because I was too lazy to take one and upload it of my own house. I just happened to have this one I took the other day but it is how my kitchen looks at this very minute except it's night-time so there's no sunshine outside the window. :)
Now I'm drifting off to dreamland and feeling happy!
