I have gotten so much done today.
It feels great!!
If I could bottle up this feeling and sell it - I'd be rich!  lol

I've gotten so much done around the house and am still maintaining and it's getting so easy that I'm even having more free time.
Someone could knock at my door and I wouldn't even need to do a quick pick up.

I REALLY want to encourage you that if you are in a rut with your home or it's a mess or even if you are just not happy with where you're at in your cleaning your home - to just do your daily work and then work on other things when you are done.
Take your breaks, drink your water & ENJOY YOUR KIDS!

Get them in on it!  They will feel great accomplishment too and you'll be teaching them good work ethic and how to keep their homes one day.  My girls have been helping for about 8 months or so now and it's so much help and they do a great job!
When you are done with a project and need more excitement to keep going - just take a break, have a glass of tea or some water and then go back and look at what you accomplished and how nice it looks.  It will fuel you forward!  Also, look at your house like if you were selling it and wanted to be able to show it.  Look at it like a stranger.  You'll notice things that need to be done or put away that you've looked at so long you've forgotten it was there because you don't notice it anymore.

From Melissa's advice which I think is great -- ask your husband what are the things that matter most to him so you can have those done each time before he comes home!
I feel so blessed!

:-) Well the floors did not get done this morning, but the children are sitting down to watch a movie so I think I will use that time to work on the floors. I spent most of the day researching freezers and finally found one and when we went out just to see what was actally in stores...at the Sears store Tim said to order the one I had seen from the website and he could ring it up then....well, I hadn't brought my money with me so we'll go back tomorrow to order and it should be back at the store by Friday at the latest.

Isn't it a blessing from the Lord to be able to look at your house and be proud of how clean it is and that you did it with Joy for the Lord.

Melissa, SO happy you are getting your freezer! I have one on my "wish list" that I look at sometimes when I have some extra money! That's awesome! I know you can't wait to get it home with you!
