I followed a link from Twitter the other morning entitled “10 Ways to Keep Your House Neat.” Or something like that. It had a bunch of tips ranging from the mundane: “A place for everything and everything in its place” to the ridiculous: “Never stop picking up.” It was tip number 8 that really really made my hair stand on end: “Practice makes perfect.”
That is why I write this blog.
Ladies (and gentlemen), let me just get right up on my cluttered kitchen counter and yell: Stop with the trying to be perfect! Spoiler Alert: It ain’t gonna happen. I have 3 kids, 2 dogs, 1 husband and a life. I don’t need to practice cleaning and straightening my house so I can, or my house can be perfect. Ever. And neither do you.
