Totally worth the work.

In case you were grossed out by this… I had to come back to show you the drastic difference.

I complained for the few days it took to clean up all that nastiness from the cover breaking but it was totally worth it!

Look at the payoff!!  Beautiful!  So inviting….and in this 102 degree heat we’ve been having I am SO thankful we’ve been able to use it!!

I’ve really been working on being thankful even in the things I do not like to do.  I’d love to hear what your least favorite chore is and how you feel when it’s done!

10 minutes to clean.

Perhaps you’ve seen this, perhaps not.  I’ve seen it quite a few times around the blog world today.

I just want to say that I’m happy I’m not the only one!!

Last week in our Proverbs 31 bible study we studied this.  Proverbs 31:17  She sets about her work vigorously, her arms are strong for her tasks.

What is it about us (as women, moms, wives) that we feel the need to impress those once in a while visitors yet don’t work this hard to impress our husbands?  I’m not speaking for everyone but as much as I’ve seen this on Facebook & Twitter today I think it’s safe to say the majority of us!!!

Let’s make a pact to spend these 10 minutes working hard for our families (husband, kids, significant other) before they walk in the door!

I’m starting today…who’s with me?!?

Thankless Thursday

Just thinking about cleaning on what is probably the most beautiful day of the season almost made me sick to my stomach! It was GORGEOUS here today. Sunny, breezy, not too hot…perfection.  The kind of weather I dream about.

On my list today?  Cleaning out the fridge. I can not stand this chore. It’s up there with cleaning the toilet. It needs to be done but will anyone notice?  Of course I love it when it’s completed but the before and during are utter agony. So…not that anyone needs or wants to see the inside of my fridge but here are some before and after pics.

Why is this a thankless job?  It’s thankless because in all honesty it’s a little hard to see that it’s ‘clean’ but it’s fresh and also a bit more organized.

So what is your least favorite chore? What is your Thankless Thursday? I want to be there to cheer you on and say great job!  It’s the little things we do on a daily or weekly basis that help keep our families running. Those are also the things that tend to get overlooked.  I’m not sure why but if someone else decided to clean the fridge I’d feel obligated to thank them. Why is that? Most of the time I’m not thanked for the little things I do to keep our house in order such as grocery shopping, cleaning toilets, laundry or cleaning up the crumbs on the floor for the 8th time before noon.  I say most of the time because my husband is pretty awesome about noticing and does give me a shout out.

So for all of you out there that don’t get thanked at all or don’t get thanked enough – I thank you! I know the hard work you put in and I’d love to hear about your thankless chores.  I’m happy to highlight them here on Thursdays!
