Making Your Home a Haven - Day Two (Living room)
Today's challenge:

1) Refresh your spirit (5 minutes)

STOP: Have you done your morning routine yet? If not, stop here and start with that. When you've finished it, come back here for your next assignment.

My morning routine will vary greatly for the next week or so as we get ready to move and as we get settled into our new home. For this week as long as everyone gets fed and cleaned up I'm happy!

2) Take Time to Plan (5 minutes)

If you have not done so, make a short to-do list for today of things you need to do or would like to accomplish. Keep your list it to ten items or less. Number the items in order of importance and tackle the first one. Don't move on to #2 on your list until #1 is completely finished.

Remember, though, to see your list as a guideline, not a slave master. The list is just meant to help you not be aimless. If other things come up which are more important, be cheerful and flexible.

-Put in a load of laundry
-Run dishwasher
-Make lunch for Dwayne
-Run errands
-Pack clothing
-Clear off piano
-Pack fragile items from living room
-Water plants
-Pack remaining items on white bookshelf
-Wash walls in entranceway

3) Do Something! (10 minutes)

Since we tackled our entryways yesterday, we're moving on to our living rooms today. Light a candle, put on your apron, turn on some uplifting music, and then set the timer for ten minutes and get busy cleaning your living room! Start by putting throwing out trash, putting away misplaced items, and straightening up things. If you have time, do a quick dust and vacuum of the room.

This is going to take much more than 10 minutes for me today. All of the clean laundry in the house is in the living room right now waiting to be packed for our move. I also need to give the room a good vacuuming and dusting.

I will post pictures later on today once some progress has been made!
