I've sort of been in a cleaning slump... for quite some time now I've been trying to figure out how to keep my house clean, laundry done, dinner made, teeth brushed, make up on, hair done, grocery shopping done... the list goes on and on... so, how do you manage all of these things with 6 kids. My kids are wonderful kids and I love spending time with them BUT today Charly and I spent some time together in a different fashion.
I know I need to teach my kids how to clean BUT... sometimes it is just easier to do it myself. With the overwhelming list I make each day I realize that I do need their help. Not just for me but for them as well! I know I wont become the perfect mother or housewife overnight but I thought I'd at least start with something small today.
As many of you, I have discovered Pinterest! There are many motivating people out there that love sharing their creativity with others. Here is the Pin I came acrossed today:
Spring Cleaning Made Easy!
So, I decided to tackle #1
Dust and clean light fixtures and fans.
Luckily I live in California where they don't believe in putting light in any of the ceilings so, my job wasn't too bad today. Charly worked right along side of me. We took the fixtures apart and got rid of all the dust, dead flies and filth that was sitting on our lights.
We cranked up some "One Direction" and cleaned. I hope that tomorrow I will get to clean along side one of my other kids!
Here is the my favorite cleaning job of the day. I was looking at the sacrament tray and just thought it was that old ugly color.... but then I thought I'd try my BRASSO on it... and with much success it looks absolutely beautiful!
What will tomorrow bring? (hopefully some more motivation!)

Its been a long time coming! This is our kitchen back in 2008. Cyrus has done alot of work on it for me! I love my new kitchen. It doesn't even look like the same house! There are still a few things I want to change... like get new bar stools but for the most part... it's been a fun project that we have worked on together over the past 4 years!
