A Housekeeping ZINGER!

I have been zinged. Truth smacked me right in my face thru a blog this morning. Boldly stated in black and white the blogger wrote:

If you don't have a handle on meals and laundry,
it almost doesn't matter
what your other goals are for your home.

Wow. I needed to hear that!

Leila over at the blog Like Mother, Like Daughter goes on to say that if you do not know what is for dinner or have your laundry under control, then there is no need to move on to the housecleaning, decluttering, organizing, rearranging, implementing new strategies and systems with the kids, decorating, etc. Well that is what her posts spoke to me.

Go see for yourself. Here are the 2 posts I have been reading and pondering this morning. Click on the words Post 1 and Post 2 to be taken to the posts. You gotta read them.

Post 1: The Reasonably Clean, Fairly Neat, and Comfortably Tidy House. This Year.

Post 2: Can your New Year's Resolutions take the reality test? Or, my secret to straightening our your life.

I have bookmarked Leila's blog cause I want to read her recent post titled A Pep Talk on Organization. Leila is older than most of us and has 4 older daughters so she has the experience to back her wisdom. Check out the pictures on her sidebar. But before I read more, I must get dinner in the crockpot and move the laundry from the washer to the dryer.

Do you know what is for dinner tonight?

Is your laundry under control?

More later on this housekeeping thing. I am in a major reevaluating and getting a system in place mode. I long for my home to hum a happy tune. Sure would love to hear where you all are on this.

You and I were made to run The Intentional Home.
We can so do this-

P.S. I found Leila's blog thru a link on The Nester's introduction post to her new series titled 31 Days to a Less Messy Nest. This too looks like it will be a good read. Now we just need to make sure we don't just read about keeping house, but go keep house. I can do some major procrastinating with this blog reading.
