My husband graciously pointed out to me yesterday that our house is living a lie. It is holding in a big dark secret, filth. I try and keep a very nice house. Please don't open a cabinet or a drawer though, because that is where you'll find it all "stuffed"! Matt was unloading the Dishwasher for me yesterday and when he went to put a wooden spoon away he was disgusted! Turns out that if you never wipe a drawer down, four years later there is bound to be gunk in it! Then we noticed that milk splatters are everywhere! I try to keep Ryder with his cup in the Kitchen, but I am not always successful. This morning after I fixed Ryder's breakfast I went to put the milk back in the fridge and thought yuck...I start throwing out the old and scrubbing the shelves. Then I look at the table and all of the crusties in the grooves that doesn't come off with a simple daily wipe down. There it began, I am cleaning every nook and cranny. I decide to just mark today down as a cleaning day and become overwhelmed. So my thought is a room a day. Today, I am going to focus solely on the Kitchen. I am going to clean drawers, cabinets, pantry, ovens..you name it and I am going to clean it. Tomorrow, I'll move on to the living room...doesn't seem nearly as daunting when I take it one day at a time!!
