The War is On

There is a war waging in Apartment 17. And right now I am losing. Big time. But all that is about to change...

I have a Spring Break Battle Plan. I've broken down each room of my house into a to-do list. If each item is completed, my house should be CLEAN. Not just clean, CLEAN.

Now I am not one of those women who gets all torn up over the state of my house. I want people to feel comfortable when they come over, not as if they are afraid to get something dirty. And most days I choose time with my husband sitting in front of the tv than cleaning up something that will just get dirty again. And most of the time I don't even feel too guilty about it. But with a baby on the way, I feel as though some things may have to change. For one, the time will come quicker than I realize when I will have an almost-toddler in the house. A boy who will crawl all over the place and put anything and everything in his mouth. For two, I will probably have frequent visitors for a while. And no one wants visitors if their house looks like mine does right now!

So wish me luck on my massive to-do list. (It actually does fit in two columns all on one page. And when I make a list, I like to feel successful by marking things off so some of the items will be marked off fairly easily.) Updates to come!


  1. I'm cheering you on to victory as you tackle that to-do list this week. But also don't forget to rest and relax some, too! You deserve it! Love you!

  2. You can do it! me if you need me! I might call you soon. The garage isn't calling to me for some reason. I would rather help you. haha
