Staying Up Late

Yes, the Olympics is keeping me up late...and what happens when Chrissy stays up late...I want to stay up longer and get things done. I ended up cleaning my kitchen (including dishes and oven) after the wonderful viewing of our Olympians! :) The kitchen looks spectacular...I give myself a Gold medal for the cleaning competition. It's funny how our houses can get so dirty sometimes. This will always puzzle and amaze me at the same time.

I am a true night owl, but I'm working off and on towards making sure that I don't stay up late too many night in a row. I just love to get things done. I know for those that know me that I'm a little tough when it comes to organizing and cleaning. :) I can't help it. It's what I do.

God's been working on cleaning up me! :) I feel closer than I have in a long time. It's like relationships around us. You have to put the time in to get a flourishing relationship...whether that be friends, spouses and loved ones. It takes the time and energy to keep it going. Just like it takes the same efforts in order to keep the house clean and organized.

May we give time to all our relationships in order to grow closer. Staying up late reminded me that effort is a major key in getting anything accomplished.

One more thing....there was a quote at a meeting I was at last night. I was looking around the room and there the quote was....

Do what you can, where you are at, with what you have. - President Theodore Roosevelt

That is a good quote! I have been glad for extra energy to get things done lately, too. My kitchen has not gone to bed dirty in three weeks! That is the longest running clean kitchen since I got married!
