I’m feeling pretty cute today.
I’ve never been one to feign modesty, and I am generally pretty honest. Honestly, I look good right now.
The average person might not see me and think so, but my hair is fixed with my favorite scarf (it turned up in some random place last week), my legs are very recently shaved, I have on makeup, earrings, and necklace, and even, get this, a skirt.
If you’re a mom of little ones, you know that this can be quite a feat.
Wednesdays are a bit crazy for me. I go to a Bible Study and leave the house at 8:15. This morning I got up before 6:00 so I could shower and still do my basic kitchen tasks. But, I put off the bathrooms. I just didn’t want to risk funkifying my outfit before I left.
So I’m home now, and it’s time to write this post. The main benefit of these daily checklist posts is that I go do the tasks if I haven’t done them yet. So I had to decide between my vanity or staying on top of my tasks. I . . . chose . . . the . . . task. I wiped down the bathroom while wearing what for some people would be everyday clothes, but for me is like dressing up for the prom.
I can’t make excuses. I know that one day of not wiping down the counters and toilets wouldn’t ruin everything. There will be times when I have such a crazy day I totally forget, or there may be days when I flat out refuse. But for now, as I develop this habit, I have to be committed to my home. I can’t look for the first excuse to come my way.
I love my shiny bathrooms. I wonder if my house feels pretty?
