Clean Up Day!

It was a very busy day for me...I have to do some last minute touch ups at home, making sure everything is in place.  Got to clear all clutters, get rid of dusts from appliances and furniture, rearrange books, etc.  Even the wall paintings and cross stitch frames were cleaned.  It's almost end of the year and to get rid of clutter is a must. Not only will it create more space but it will give you an aura of orderliness and cleanliness around the area.  It is also a great way of attracting positive energy to run through the house.  This is what I always read from "feng shui" articles, untidy surroundings attract "negative chi".  

Besides...few days more and I'm set to travel back to where I work.  So, it's just practical and wise to make sure that I did the necessary clean ups in the house.  I have to make sure that everything is okay before I leave the house.  This will give me a secured feeling.  Likewise, there would be a feeling of satisfaction and sense of fulfillment that I was able to do what's supposed to be done according to how it was planned.
It's really hard to be a working mom ....but there is a sense of fulfillment for every task successfully done. 

Mom at work!

 It was so timely, while checking on my emails for today,I came across of this story about the wonders of being a Mom.  I can very well relate to this story since I'm also the type of Mom who never wish to sleep when there's a lot of things left unfinished....please check the story...for Moms out there, who knows... you may feel that you are the one in the story, and for the kids... there are thousand reasons why you should love your Moms and why Mom is a very important character in your life .... it's not really a big effort for you to show them how much you appreciate their presence in your life...for without them .... who's going to do all those stuff...
here it goes......


Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, "I'm tired and it's getting late, I have to go to bed."

She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches.Rinsed out the popcorn bowl, took out the meat from the freezer for the following day's supper, check the cereal box levels, filled up the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the following morning.

She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button.

She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put the telephone book into the drawer.

She watered the plants, empties a waste basket and hung up a towel to dry.

She yawned and stretched and headed to the bedroom. She stopped by the bed,and wrote a note to the teacher, counted up some cash for the field trip, and pulled out a textbook from hiding under the chair.

She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store.  She put both near her purse.

Mom then washed her face with a three in one cleanser, put on her night solution and age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.

Dad called out out, "I thought you are going to bed?"

"I'm on my way", she said.

She put some water into the dog's dish, and put the cats outside and made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on.

She looked on each of the kids, turned off their bedside lamps, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper and had a brief conversation with the one still doing the homework.

In her own room, she set up the alarm, laid down the clothes for the following morning, straightened up the shoe rack.  She added 3 things to her 6 important things to do list.  She said her prayers and visualized the accomplishment of her goals.

About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular, "I'm going to bed"... and he did without another thought.

Wonder why women live longer? 


We can't die sooner...we still have things to do.....
