"The appearance of your home doesn't lie."
It wasn't even the main point of the post but it just got me. It's so true... most of the time. There are days that I work very hard but the toddlers are faster with the toys and the muddy feet are quicker than Mom. It can be very frustrating. However, I must admit, the days my house looks it's worst are the days (notice the plural) I decide not to play keep up. Some days I don't like that it falls on me to keep order and peace in all areas. Some days I simply rebel and don't do the work. The outcome? Well, it's true, "the appearance of your home doesn't lie".
I struggle with consistency in this area for sure. Today my husband is home on a mini vacation and I just want to sit chill. I was leaving my messy kitchen behind as that darn quote popped into my head again. So instead of sitting, I turned around and cleaned it up. It looks so much better and now I can go sit... well no, now I can get kiddos ready to go volunteer and figure out what's for dinner and and and and. But it's done and I feel better leaving for other things with a clean house to come home to.
How's the appearance of your home today?
