I choose the later. It took a week but I survived. I know how nervous you all must have been (and thank you for all of you who's sweet notes supported me during this process, I really mean that and for once, I am not being sarcastic! You know who you are and I appreicate you!)
Perhaps by posting these words and pictures it will serve as a consicous reminder for me to 1. pick things up and put the away immediately 2. be aware of how easily junk, clutter and messes accumulate. One really has to be diligent here. 3. watch the offspring in the house and teach them the same thing (saves time and possibly will deter their flung shui tendencies when they are older?) 4 luxuriate in how wonderful it feels to have a clean, neat, tidy and organized space!
My goal is to keep this up because after spending a week trying to find the top of my house, I see that I could be using this time to do things I really enjoy instead of continually cleaning all the time. Dusting, dirty floors, dishes and laundry are not going to disappear anytime soon, I know this. Yet by following a more orgnaized routine maybe, just maybe I can get to some of those cre8tive projects I fall alseep dreaming about.
Drum Roll please.........here are the results of cleaning week, Fung Shui style:
Wow! Pryce can actually see her room and she impressed Mama by putting all of her Barbie toys away........without being told! (HUGE!)
