UPDATE: I’m in the middle of treatment right now & it’s kinda doing me in, So we are going to take a rain check on the homemaking olympics! Sorry!! Im hoping i can bring it back around later, but for now, I just can’t. To all the people who entered & emailed me, I have emailed you! Thanks to everyone! Sorry again!!
IT’S HERE! I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS.
I have been working away at this for a few weeks! And it’s all set up! Yay!
This is the biggest and funnest thing I have EVER done on the blog. I know you’re all going to LOVE it.
Ok. So let’s get to it!
I hate doing my home chores. Things like unpacking my dishwasher, folding my laundry, vacuuming, making my bed, cleaning my kitchen, moping the floors and all that stuff.
It gets so.. boring.. doing it every day.
Don’t get me wrong, I do actually do it.. It makes me feel good once it’s done. It always looks cleaner and neater and I feel good about doing something.. But It’s not on my top 50 thing I love, not even on the top 1000.
You know all that stuff I just rattled off. We all do it. EVERYDAY. And we get pretty dang good at doing it, don’t we?
If some one were to ask what I excel at.. I would possibly say managing to do more than a weeks worth of cleaning in fifteen flat.
A close second would be creating that weeks worth of mess in another 15. Ha.
But we do this, daily. And we excel at it.
It’s almost like we are training for something…
ENTER; THE HOMEMAKING OLYMPICS.
I’m going to run an olympics games here, on the blog!!
We do these things EVERY DAY!
So let’s make them fun and put all our training to good use!
