Weekend Update

I decided last week to rearrange our house a little bit. I realized that our kitchen table was set up to look pretty, but we never eat at our table. So it is taking up a lot of space that we could be using. Considering our laundry room is basically non existent I decided to use the extra space for laundry use. Now the laundry is out of the way and yet still accessible. So far I am loving it. 

On Saturday I spent the day cleaning the entire house. I had been semi keeping up with the dishes and laundry throughout the week, so the only cleaning left was big items. Now that my house is clean my goal is to spend a few minutes every day so that the mess does not accumulate. I am doing well so far, which is a huge accomplishment for me! 

On the Fly Lady website, the first step to an organized house is to shine your sink. This means that at the end of every night, you go to bed with a clean sink. I like this idea that way the dishes will never sit in the sink. Keeping up with the dishes = less time needed to do them every night.

A change of attitude toward cleaning has helped me to stop thinking of cleaning as a chore and instead enjoy the end result: a clean house. Walking around my house seeing its clean and knowing that I am going to keep it that way makes me happy. 

Saturday night my husband and I spent the evening together. We went to Chili's for dinner and watched the movie Friends with Benefits. I love the nights when I get to spend time with my husband no matter what we do. 

The weekend may not have been all that eventful, but I still enjoyed it. :)
