Yesterday I passed on the Fly Lady's website. Her focus for the month of January is was developing a habit of cleaning your kitchen sink everyday. This is also Day 1 of her 31 day challenge to bring order to your life and home. (That's a full time job in my house.)
After writing my post, I did it. I tackled that kitchen sink with great gusto. I was excited that at least my kitchen sink would be clean. The excitement transpired to a good cleaning and bleaching of my entire kitchen. All the cabinets wiped down, the cabinet tops sparkling, the knobs disinfected, and even the tile. All the junk and mail strewn over the island is gone. All that sits there tonight is my camera and an extra lens. Nothing to keep it company...ahhh!!
But each time I walked through my kitchen this afternoon, it made my heart go pitter patter. What is it about a clean kitchen makes the whole house seem so much cleaner? It's crazy!! Cydney's toys could be all over the living room...I can just walk right through them to the recliner to rock her. But a messy kitchen makes my stomach wrench.
Not tonight though...a clean kitchen it is in our home. And a smile on this mommy's face.
Goodnight all...have a blessed week.
