Day 14 –The Secret to Having Energy
Mary Challenge: Figure out your “jazzy,” what makes you come alive, and then see if you can find a way to incorporate it into your week.
To be honest, I am a little overwhelmed with the Mary challenges. They are all great goals to aspire to but I need to focus on one for a While, more than just a day. I think this is why I've never done well with daily devotional "thoughts". I need time to marinate. I can't even come up with my "jazzy"...maybe it's thinking. Long, Quiet, Uninterrupted, THINKING. hmmm I should make time for that! It would help me all around: learning in God's word, planning/organizing my entire family's days, appointments, activities, etc. I'll be working on this Thinking thing! Lecha know...
Martha Challenge: Bedrooms – Clean and store winter bedding. Bring out your summer bedding! Flip your mattress. Wash your pillows.
Check! Took me a while to actually get the blankets to the laundry mat with my littles but it was an experience...it was an ALL day thing where we spent $15.00 (not budgeted this month), learned a lot about a new place, got in a walk to the park around the corner we rarely get a chance to go to, met a new friend, and got the big blankets washed. Success!

*Decor plans have been in the works for over a year. We LOVE paint, hanging pictures on the walls, curtains, and other decor. Some rooms are closer than others but still aren't "there" YET! Time, Dave Ramsay, and logistics just are not on our side right now, and that's ok.
How is your "spring cleaning" going? Any hiccups in your decorating ideals?
