Mary Challenge: Ask your family what makes them feel the most loved when it comes to you caring for your home – ask them to be specific so that you can begin (or continue) to give life to your domain.
My 3 babes under 3 just stared at me… hehe
My sweet, amazing, encouraging hubby told me it makes him comfortable, (and I guess) feel loved when he comes home every afternoon and the house (mainly the living room) is picked up. He also said that this makes him more aware of cleaning/keeping things picked up daily and when he’s watching the kiddos for me. *Bonus! He also appreciates it when he comes down stairs, from his nightly routine of putting the girls to bed, to find I’ve done the nightly load of laundry and dishes as well as picked up any stragglers from the girl’s game of “clean up” for bed. YAY!
Martha Challenge: Kitchen – Dust tops of refrigerator, cabinets, and shelves. Clean and shine the outsides of drawers and cabinets.
GROSS! I believe the former family who lived in this house were deep-frying smokers (no offense) because the amount of built up grease and grim on the tops of those cabinets could have stocked Mickey Ds for years!
