Have you noticed the little "Company Girl Coffee" button on the side bar? (Feel free to click on it now and come on back when you're done.)
Are you back? Don't you just LOVE Rachel's blog? I certainly do. She's been such an inspiration to me over the past few years. Her daily "Simple Things" are easily done and give such a feeling of accomplishment. Most days that is all I need; a nudge in the right direction. Once I have some momentum, not much can stop me.
I've been sick for the past few weeks. Nothing major, but just enough to suck all my energy and allow me the luxury of saying I was sick. My house has suffered. With one husband, four kids, two dogs (and a partridge in a pear tree) the house needs attention. Every. Day.
My father-in-law will be in town tomorrow to play a round of golf with my husband. There's a strong chance he will stay the night with us. While he most likely won't notice or even mind that our house is a little out of sorts, I know it is. Time to get out the vacuum and bring some semblance of order to our humble abode.
So, thank you Rachel for reminding me that although vacuuming sucks, it does make for a nicer looking and better feeling house.
