In order to sometimes get where you wanna gotta let someone know where you are headed. So I am letting you all know where I am headed.

See housework has never been my strong suit and as a "out of the house working mom" (since ALL moms are working moms) it has been even more difficult to keep the house in order. A friend of mine recently sent me an email telling me she was a part of a focus group and would anyone be interested in a free copy of this book. "31 Days to Clean: Having a Martha House the Mary Way". I immediately felt led to say "YES, I want that book".

So yesterday began my journey. Each day in the book there is a Mary and Martha Challenge. Yesterday's Mary Challenge was to write a mission statement as to why it is important to you to keep a tidy/clean house. At first I kinda thought this was silly but I wrote mine and read through it a few times. As I was working in the kitchen (aka disaster area) yesterday I realized how I was thinking about my mission statement and how it can and will change my approach to keeping a tidy and clean house. This morning I wrote that statement on some fun paper and am going to display it so that I see my own reminder.

So when you stopped by my blog today I am sure you were not ready to sign up to be my accountability partner but that is what is happening. I am putting this all out there as to keep myself accountable. If I did my math correctly and after considering our vacation in July, my day 31 should be July 14th.

I am very thankful for this journey and of course in God's perfect timing, it comes to me during a time when life is a tad bit slower, summer. So thanks for taking this journey with me and I will keep you posted along the way.
