I do want to share a little more about my birthday celebration weekend away with my husband. I think he was a little hurt when he saw the one short paragraph I wrote about it on my last post. He spent a lot of time and energy planning a fun and relaxing weekend.
Unfortunately I forgot my camera that weekend! And there was some amazing scenery. But, my friend's Melissa and Craig brought theirs. So, my plan is to get them to e-mail me a few pictures that I can then share on here. All this to say...I will be writing a little more about our fun time once I get those pics.
I looked around my house today and was completely overwhelmed by the mountains of laundry, dishes, clutter scattered hither and yon. I didn't know where to start! Then, this little thought struck my mind..."A good place to start is to get started." I don't know if I heard that somewhere or just made it up. But, it's true, right?
Sometimes we just have to roll up our sleeves and dive in.
It reminds me of an anecdote I read once in a book about organizing, decluttering, cleaning, etc. In the anecdote the woman was doing a lot of what I was doing at that time...reading about ways to better do all those things. And, in the story, her husband said, 'Instead of reading about vacuuming, why don't you just vacuum?'
Yup. Sometimes you just gotta make stuff happen. So, that's what I'm up to these days...trying to make stuff happen.
I hope you all are having blessed weeks. I'll check in again soon.
