Time to Clean Up.

Life is crazy.

I'm stuck again. Overwhelmed. Trying to find some sort of balance in providing all the wants and needs of my family.

Lately I feel like I'm lost. Like I've lost control and I've created a mess of things.

I have to get back to some sort of order.

Last week I stumbled across the ebook, 31 Days to Clean- Having a Martha House the Mary Way.

It was only $4.99 to download so I grabbed it (another freebie thanks to my Swagbucks!)

So far I've read the first week and participated in the Mary & Martha challenges at the end of every chapter. The chapters are short, easy reads that take me under 5 minutes to finish. The Mary challenges are simple and get my mind thinking about what & why I want what I do and how to go after it. The Martha challenges are super easy and very straight forward. She breaks down the entire kitchen over a week... one day you clean the outside of your cabinets and the next you clean your oven.

I think this could actually work for me.

On September 1st The Homemaker's Challenge is kicking off a challenge running through the book together.

Homemakers Challenge

And so I'm going to put my neck out on the line and commit to this... publicly!  

Maybe a challenge is just what I need!!

  1. I know exactly what you mean. I've been pushing to get back on top of things one room at a time for the last few weeks and finally this last week I've been on top of everything. I've let my blog go, in the meantime, but now that I've reestablished new routines in my I-have-a-toddler-now world (yes, she is nine months old, but a toddler by definition of walking around and pulling things out of everywhere and putting them everywhere else, ha) I am hoping to get back into crafting and blogging, feeling more relaxed now that I've got some good routines!
