100 Days of Gratitude: Day 1

Today, I am grateful for my clean and organized house. I know it may seem silly to most, but I feel right with the world when my house is clean and organized.  I’ve spent the last three days cleaning out my house and getting rid of the things I don’t need and rearranging the things I do. I’m exhausted and sore!

I even made a cute little reading nook for the kids in this awkward space in our hallway that I never knew what to do with. I still need to decorate the walls a bit more, but it’s equipped with a teepee, big fluffy floor pillow, a little shelf with a small selection of books, and a couple stuffed animals to cuddle with.

I reorganized and cleaned out my closet… there is a FLOOR in there!!! Whoa! – Four trash bags full of unwanted clothes, later.

Moved my bedroom around creating my own little reading nook, organized the babies play area, and scrubbed the house top to bottom and I am one satisfied Momma!

When I talk to my husband about my happiness over a clean house he looks at me like I belong in an institute. I tried to confess my love to him for my Swiffer and he looked at me like I was a crazy person. –Nothing I mean NOTHING picks up dog hair like a Swiffer!! Ha-Ha.

All of this completed with all three of my children in the home… that’s major! The boys are pretty good at allowing me to get the house cleaned because they know it makes mommy happy, but the baby isn’t so great with allowing me to do, well… anything.

Love, Love, Love my clean and organized house, and praying it can stay that way for at least one more day!

Pray for me!!
