Jessica has inspired me. Last Saturday karate was canceled, and Gabe and I cleaned house! We're planning to take 3 or 4 Saturday mornings and work really hard, giving the house a good old fashioned "spring" cleaning. I'm also re-organizing my chore cards and considering using them again. They fell by the wayside for awhile, but I think it might be a good idea to go back to that system. I'm pretty good at basic dailies and weeklies on my own, but that isn't enough to keep a really clean house, as opposed to a tidy house.
I forget, in the busyness and mess of day to day living, what a blessing it is to have a truly clean house. But oh, what a pleasure it is to walk into our beautiful bedroom now! Just being in there feels relaxing!
