A clean house. Saturday is my cleaning day. By Sunday you wouldn't know it. But this past Saturday, I cleaned everything. I mean a "on your knees scrub the floors clean" clean. It was especially gratifying because Mister worked all day Saturday. I wan't cleaning around him, it was a full on clean.
The happy part is that we've managed to keep it clean ALL week long. And by clean I mean everything in it's place. Nothing laying around. Bliss.
I am not sure everyone was on board at first or realized the happiness it was bringing me until I got up out of bed on Sunday night to clean up the kitchen, which is usually left a mess, when Mister came to bed. I think the clanking of dishes said all there was to say and it's been clean sailing since...
Do you ever feel that way? Like they just don't get it. I do quite a bit at work when we're talking about recruiting (that's what I do)
But I feel it even more when I think about how I structure my days, my weeks, my months. Like I don't get it.
I feel like I spend the majority of my life hurrying from one thing to the next; on the way to the end of the day, the end of the week, the next year, something different, the next stage of life...I have a great life and I am hurrying through it without evening noticing what makes it good.
If I look back on my week, it looks like this - work, traffic, work, traffic, work, traffic,work, traffic, work, traffic. It goes without saying traffic sucks. Work, is work. It keeps me busy, pays the bills. I work for a great company but at the end of my life I am not wanting to remember traffic and life in a cube.(cubes also suck). It's time to add a whole lot of happy into my days, weeks, months. Man, it's easy to get lost in the rat race. Do you have any secrets to finding balance? to not living on autopilot? to getting the most out of life?

11 hours in the car with Mister. Not sure why we need the GPS when we clearly know where we are going. From what I've seen so far I the better driver and that's not saying much. Wish us luck. Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry
