Super Mom

So I just had to post something about my accomplishment lately. It may not seem like a big deal to some but to me its a big deal. I think my Mom is pretty proud of me too. I have never been a very clean person. Not with like hygiene or anything but I could never keep my room clean when I was young and even when I got older and had a job and was going to college. My Mom is very clean and would teach us every Saturday to do our chores to keep the house clean. Well when Jesus and I got married things didnt really change because I was working full time and he was working and going to school so it was both of our responsibility to keep our small apartment clean but by the time we both got home we were always too tired to do anything. Well until recently I hadnt quite figured out how to keep things clean while trying to take care of Patrick. I dont know what happened but I think I decided that it was important for me to teach Patrick how important it was to keep things tidy and I always felt bad when Jesus would come home from a hard day to a messy house. I would rush to clean up as much as I could about a half an hour before he came home so it wouldnt look so bad but it didnt make that much of a difference. Well for the past two weeks I have kept our apartment clean!!!! I mean floor picked up, kitchen clean, even our bedroom has been clean with the bed made (most of the time, I take naps during the day and it seems pointless to make the bed). I have felt so good about it that I think I am now in the habit of just picking up after everything. I always make sure the kitchen is clean before I go to bed and it feels pretty good to wake up to a clean kitchen. Now I know what my Mom was talking about all this time. I feel like a super mom!

You've inspired me to do better but not until Monday :) I go through phases where the house will be spotless for a couple weeks and then messy for a few... right now it's messy and I envy your cleanliness. I'm waiting to see if Devonn will clean it in honor of Mother's Day :)

You are supermom! (I wish I could change some of my not so great habits!) You'll be ready for inspection anytime I drop by...
