I haven’t really kept up with my plan to give you a “Tuesday Tour” of how I am “Making our House a Home” for several weeks. There are several reasons I could give you for this….like the fact that I haven’t done anything worth showing in the past few weeks or that I’ve been keeping too busy with other things or that I am questioning whether that is something I really even want to do every week and if anybody really cares. All true…but also true is the fact that nothing has been clean enough to take a picture of.
I value cleanliness. I value organization. It has always been my practice to clean up my space before stopping to relax (aka. do homework, crafts, or hang out with people) in it. Nothing seems as enjoyable or productive to me when done in a cluttered or messy environment.
I am realizing more and more that my desire calling to have a big family will probably not coincide well with my need desire to have a clean and orderly home. So as an exercise of growth and maturity in mommyhood, I AM going to give you a tour of my home today. As it looks today.
Watch your step as you enter; you may have to do a bit of maneuvering to make your way up the stairs. Or just kick things out of your way, whatever works for you. Feel free to take off your shoes, and find an available spot on the steps to put them.
Before heading downstairs, you are welcome to take a peak into the bedrooms. Siah’s room is currently occupied by my little brother, Tyler, who is staying with us for the week (The 7-year-old creator of the above scenes).
My sewing space downstairs actually looks better than it did in these pictures…I just haven’t had time to mess it up sew in a while.
And remember, not so long ago, when I showed you these pictures of our wonderfully organized garage? Well, this is what it looks like today:
