Homemakers Challenge - 31 Days to Clean

I feel that I am in a transition season when it comes to my home.  I’ve been feeling this way for a while though I have just been able to put words to it.  As I see it, I am just coming out of a season of training – training my children to care for the home.  I’m not out of this season completely just yet, but moving towards the end.  Being in a place of training has meant that my children have done the bulk of the work, that I have either worked along side of them, or more of a management role where I make sure everything happens and yet don’t have very much time to do much hands on myself.

The times are changing – I’m at the beginning of a season of team work, where my kids and I work together.  Though I’m still doing a little training there is less management needed, and I have more time to be involved myself.  The younger children still need a little training, a little supervision and management but overall the housework flows smoothly and there is little for me to do as things stand.

Well, there is always more to do so this is where the season change comes about.  It is time for me to get my hands dirty!  There are housework tasks that have been put on the back shelf because we’ve been working on the daily, monthly routine chores that are necessary for a family to function in a home.  Now it is time to add those other things to my daily life.

But I have become so used to the managerial role, it is hard to get back to the hands on stuff.  I need to do a little reassessing, getting back in touch with the whole, big picture.  This is why I’m working through this e-book, 31-days to Clean.  I like the by-line for this book:  Having a Martha House the Mary Way.  I know how to clean house, I know all the systems and motivations.  But that doesn’t mean I do them!!  Come this new season of my life I want to get my heart – the Mary bit – back to where I see my house as a home, not just a training ground!
