some things i’m working on:

a less critical nature.

a more joyful heart.

less laziness in the areas that really matter.

more laziness towards the things that have no eternal value.

in the spirit of the latter, i give you:

yes, my house is on the market. wonder why no one has bought it yet… a small person could survive for weeks under my couch.
i’m a work in progress… thanks for loving me, friends!

  1. Oh my gosh, you're human! I never once recall looking under the sofa when I was touring houses for sale. If I had, I would have seen a lot of cat vomit and hair balls the size of my head. (We were lucky enough to find those at our closing.)

    Someone once told me “a clean house is a sign of a wasted life.” The crumbs under your couch are proof that your life is not wasted.


  2. HA! I love the quote from JenHahn. 🙂 AND I too am loving the fact that you are normal. I have a husband and 3 children who are alot more important than what's lurking under my couch. Our home is clean with that lived in look.


  3. My couches look much the same I am afraid… You will have plenty of time to have an immaculate house once the girls are grown and gone. I keep hearing that I will miss this stage and all the little messes. I'm not sure about that, but I am sure I will miss the little kids running around making those messes.

    Keep up the good work of being a wife and mom. Love your blog!
