Making It Fun To Clean

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Dear Friends,
As moms we have an awesome responsibility in our homes. Our moods and attitudes affect our families. How we look at taking care of our homes spills over to our families. If we approach house cleaning as a Blessing to our families, it trickles down to our children.
If we view house cleaning as a drudgery, they also see and feel this. The change starts with you. You can be positive or negative. You can make it fun or make it work. You can have the teamwork approach or the “poor pitiful me” approach.
Today starts a new week, and it can start a new attitude, too. You do not have to do it all in one day. I don’t recommend that anyway. Break down the things you need to do around the house. Keep it small and manageable. You can do big things if you break it down and take consistent steps.
We are focusing on the Living Room this week. For some of you, this can apply to the Family Room, too. This is the week to make your Living Area peaceful and declutter it. Each day, focus on one thing.
Start your Weekly Home Blessings today. If you make it a point to start your week off strong on Monday, the rest of the week will feel great! Each day is a new beginning. You just start where you are and take small steps. I know you can do it!
Yesterday I posted an article on my blog from my heart: Parenting and Prodigals. It will help you understand a little more about my recent struggles.
Your Zone Mission today is to have a 15 minute Hot Spot drill in the Living Room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash sheets.
My menu plan for Monday is lasagna and a salad.
Have a great day!

  1. Mrs. Tami,
    I have been receiving your emails for homeschooling through Flylady and I watch your vidoes. I wanted to you to know that I love hearing your calm voice helping me through the mornings. You are a blessing. I have been struggling trying to keep up with my routines. I would do great for a few weeks then fall behind. But I know I can just pick up where you are and not have to try to play catch up. I love Marla as well. I love watching her you tube videos but I tell ya, when she starts crying that makes me start to cry too,lol. I read your story about your prodigal son and it made me cry. I don’t know what you are going through but with your faith and love he will return. Love & Blessings to you and your family. Pauline

    • Thank you! You are doing a great job with your routines. Just keep doing the basic ones daily, and it will become a habit. Thank you for your prayers!

      Blessings! Tami
