Mundane Masterpieces


Ahh…I love it when my kitchen looks like this. It may take all day (even all week!) but it is a worthy accomplishment.

As homemakers we must not forget that we are fulfilling one of the most important callings in the world – making even the most mundane tasks vastly important.


And, lest you think I have it all together, my kitchen only looked like that once last week, and this was the state of Jesse’s room at the time of the kitchen’s immaculateness…


Now, there’s someone that has it all together!

    You young gals are all just trying to make me feel good because I am too tired and achey and I can’t clean from morning till night like i used to. lol I like Traci’s 15
    minutes in each room timer technique because it spurs me on but my kitchen can’t be cleaned up in that amount of time so i take longer on that. And by the way Trina, your kitchen sparkles in that picture! I so want mine like that again ๐Ÿ™‚

    i really like this post. a lot! it’s so tempting to give the impression that one has it all together, but none of us do, of course… and when we *act* like we have immaculate houses and perfectly turned out children, we put other women under pressure to do the same. it’s a kindness to others to let them see us as we really are- messy bedrooms and all! lolโ™ฅ

    Rachel, at least you remembered dinner. I’m so attached to the juice fast idea that I forgot to even remember that I have to COOK for the kids. Jeesh. Apparently they need to be fed more than once a day. I didn’t remember in time to thaw anything though so it’s pasta for them. Trina, isn’t there just something beautiful about a clean and clear countertop?

    Lol. Yeah. I know the feeling. I get the bathroom cleaned and the rest of the house if a wreck. Or the kitchen and you really don’t want to see the bathroom….My goals for today are wash dishes, vacume the living room and make supper….lol. All of which desperately need to be done!
