Today was a very stressful mommy day. Actually, the past few days have been stressful. My house was, seriously, clean two days ago, but it was a mess this morning. I don't know about you, but if I am already stressed about something and my house is a mess, it makes me feel worse. I decided to motivate myself and take pictures of my disgusting home. Then I decided I would take pictures after I cleaned it. I worked my little tail off and I feel so much better.
Cleaning helps me relieve so much stress. I had to stop about a million times to tend to my kids, but it was so worth it. I used my phone camera for the "before pictures" because I couldn't find my real camera. Crazy how when I started cleaning I found my regular camera. Ha! So the "after pictures" are with the better camera.
Living Room Before (Notice Ellie is sitting in a basket)
Dining Room Before
After (Notice all the clean pans drying. I guess I was just a little behind :))
Our Bedroom Before (Yikes!)
Feeling productive for the day feels great. If I'm going to be stuck here all day, it might as well be clean, right??
