"It's a Big Big House..."

No, not really. It just seems that way because I'm still not used to having so many rooms. I love my new house, though. We are slowly finding out that it's going to be a lot more work than we thought it would be. I'm impatient and I like instant gratification.

We moved into an older house and it needs some cosmetic fixing up. We have already been here for 2 months and I thought I would have seen more progress by now. Before we got here, I never took into account that I still have to keep up with my daily household duties. Now that the weather is warmer, add in mowing the lawn every couple of weeks. John does that, but that keeps him from working on things that I need done inside.

I have been doing Flylady off and on for a while now. Mostly off...LOL. I'm trying to get a new routine going since we have more rooms now. I need to learn to deligate, also. Jonaya is old enough to do more.

I wake up in the morning and I'm full of steam. I get quite a few things done. Some things I have to put on hold because I don't want to wake the family up. Then by mid afternoon, I am done. I don't want to spend my whole day cleaning the house.

It's a little harder having a toddler in the house, too. Every time, I clean a room he drags toys out and just leaves it there. If you ask him to pick something up he won't do it. When he sees everybody else working he wants to pitch in.

I will keep giving updates and add pictures of our progress. Right now, there is nothing on the inside that is worth seeing except for the kitchen and dining room.


  1. What a great home, Desiree!! I didn't know you moved.
