Making Your Home A Haven Challenge: Day 6

1 - Refresh Your Spirit

Today has been a chaotic day. And its only 9:00. The day started off well. A got up at 5:00 and spent time reading my bible and praying. So, I have done the first part of of the Challenge.

After breakfast with the family, (homemade banana bread made last night. YUM!) I had to drive the older kids to school. Usually they take their own car, but that's in the shop. And, usually in this situation, my hubby would take them on his way to work, but he meets with a group of men from church on Monday mornings. So, I was going to take them (because when you get to be a senior and a junior in high school, you're just too cool to take the bus, don't ya know) Anywho, we were all ready to go, when my daughter couldn't find her insulin pump (she's a Type 1 diabetic) Now, we can't leave until we find that pump. So I'm wading through the waist deep laundry scattered on her floor trying to find her pump! Finally found it. This all made us late, not to mention crabby. So after I drop the older 3 off at school, I rush back home to put the 8yo on the bus. Then I had to run right back out to drop the key to the vehicle that needs to be repaired off at the repair shop. So, I have gotten NOTHING done at home.

I think I need to refresh my spirit again.

2 - Morning Routine

This will be done as soon as I'm done with this post.

3 - Take Time To Plan

5 - Project of the Day

Today we are to straighten up main living areas and clean up the kitchen. Mine really needs it. Here's the before:

It needs a good clean. You know there's a boy in the house when you find a toy gun on the kitchen counter.

So, I'd better get going! I have my work cut out for me. I'll try and post the after pictures tonight! Check out Crystals blog Biblical Womanhood for more ideas for Making Your Home A Haven!

I am so jealous. I just don't have it in me, and my home (to all who enter) is anything BUT a haven...
