I have been in major overhaul mode in our house lately. Probably why I have not been finding time to blog-FB is easy because I can do it so quickly as I pass by the computer.
Over the past couple months I have rearranged the toy room, school room, and most recently totally cleaned out and reorganized the kitchen cabinets. I just love things to be efficient and work the best it can for our day to day activities. I have also felt the internal pressure to have things working in order before we take on the big task of starting Kindergarten with Chiara. Since I have started this major cleaning I have noticed a big change in what "needs" to get done around the house on a daily basis...it is a lot less! My kitchen seems so clean, the toys all have a place, and the school room seems to be staying clean. Amazing.
Funny, everyone kept telling me to stop cleaning so much and I was never going to get ahead. I am glad I did not listen. I knew that I could wrap myself around all this chaos. Yes, it meant getting rid of some things and yes I did not play with the girls all day long (some days they would not notice because all they do is play with one another), but I am finally able to breathe a little.
The choice to home school is one I am happy to make, but I know I would not have been able to concentrate on teaching if I was in a house of chaos. Here's to a clean and organized house! Yippee!
