My Lenten Plan

I will be the first to admit it but my house is a constant mess. there are of course toys scattered throughout, but it is more than that. I hate cleaning, I mean HATE cleaning. In todays economy we have learned that we need to appreciate what we do have and try not to focus on what we don't have. With this I have decided to appreciate the things I do have and to take better care of them starting with my house.
For Lent this year instead of giving something up I have decided to appreciate the things and people I do have in my life and try to make the best of what money we do have instead of the money we don't. I am going to try to make sure the sink is empty and the dishwasher ran every night, The living room cleaned and vacuumed daily, and to make our bed and pick up the dirty clothes every day. The toy room will be deep cleaned weekly (too scary to do it daily!)

I figured if I posted it on my blog I would be more accountable for it so no need to respond, I just need to someone to help me be accountable :)

Best wishes. I know that keeping a blog of our menu helps me actually plan & being accountable instead of buying random crap or dining out. It doesn't mean that every day works out and sometimes I switch the days of the menu around,but it works for us.
