What you can't tell from the picture is that he was rocking the entire bookshelf back and forth.
It was rewarding to be getting up early again, and I also got off to a good start with a workout routine (my goal is to do some sort of 20-30 minute work-out 3-4 days a week). However, I am trying to keep Kat's advice in mind and not start the semester off with such a bang that I'm burnt out in a few weeks.
Getting back to the small things was also nice! Here's how the week went:
Monday: The task was to get on with your minimum maintenance. Who-hoo! But am I the only one who finds that with a small child underfoot it's impossible to do all the rooms in your house consecutively? My minimum maintenance gets spread out throughout the whole day sometimes...:)
Tuesday: Get rid of a stack in your house. I dissolved two stacks--one of books (all of which I'm supposedly "currently reading"...ha!) and one of clothes. Hurrah!
Wednesday: The small thing was to find some "rings" in your house and clean them. I cleaned the coffee pot (yes, it had rings...shame, shame) and mopped the floor (which was spattered with baby-food rings!).
Thursday: Clean your window sills! I cleaned all but one of mine and found quite a few hidden cobwebs.
Today: A day off. :)
My mother's words have helped me keep perspective and be relaxed in heart this week. My friend Christina reminded me of the quote my mother has hanging in one of her bathrooms: "A clean house never lasts. Hugs and kisses do." How refreshing.
I'm linked up today to Company Girl Coffee. :)
