The truth is I am not a good housekeeper, I never have been, and I have my list of excuses as to why, emotional baggage, and old scars from growing up and doing alot of the housework and others people housework for them so when I grew up I didn't want to do it anymore. Ridiculous right, but that has been my mentality.
There have been some recent changes and discoveries in my life that are helping me make some changes, and God is changing my heart as well. One of the websites that has changed the way things are done in this house is www.flylady.net I signed up for her emails, and read the baby steps. I have only been following along for maybe 2 or 3 weeks but there is a huge difference in the house and in me. Even her Pamper Mission tips are awesome and they are teaching me to take care of me along the way. Her philosophies about perfection (see my post about how i feel about perfection here) and ways of cleaning speak to my personality. I guess in some ways I am still bouncing around but with a purpose!
Another discovery that changed my life was this blog http://proverbsfamily.blogspot.com/ The writer behind this blog did a surrender series that you can search for on the site. This was one God used to bust my heart big time http://proverbsfamily.blogspot.com/2013/07/does-anyone-appreciate-you.html
One of my biggest sources of frustration was feeling unappreciated and a huge source of anger was feeling like I had no help and that I did it all for nothing. Seeing it from a biblical perspective changed my way of looking at what I felt I had a right to.
Anyway over the next few weeks I will be posting updates and revealing the changes that are being made but here is the clutter and chaos that have ruled the Toomey house (we have lived in this one for a year)
The office....i know i know its bad....but I now have a plan!!!! I am so excited and can't wait to share updates!!!! Stay tuned......................................
