I feel like I've been kind of negative around this old blog lately. Well, if you had talked to me in person you would have heard the same thing. I've been overwhelmed.
I spent some time last week planning and writing things out and trying to figure out a plan of attack. The goal this time is NOT to "get the house clean" or "finish the laundry" or "get on top of things" or even to "declutter."
The goal this time is MUCH MUCH bigger than that. I am trying to become an organized person. At least in the area of homemaking.
It is a need. I believe that I am the keeper of this home. We are becoming a godly family. Therefore this is a godly home. And God is not a God of disorder but of peace. Therefore, our home should be a place of order and peace.
Did any of that make sense? I know there is more to having a peaceful home than the look of it, but it does absolutely make a difference. Take it from someone who is sitting in disorder at the moment. I should know.
I spent eight bucks on a tool for our home yesterday. I first saw this on Terry's blog, but it was an older version. It suddenly occurred to me that there is probably a current version, and there is. Eight bucks to help me develop better habits? I'll take one please.
This is just a simple checklist. It's not meant to induce guilt. If you can't get something done that day, you just scratch it off. You do NOT move it to the next day. Just go on with your life because it will come up again.
Oh I have so much more to say about all this but I wanted to share this first step. I'll be starting my checklist tomorrow on June 1st. We'll see how it goes!
