I’m Still Here!
So, I’ve accidentally, irreparably, ruined my blog. I screwed up sooooo bad, that I’m starting over. Do not despair. There is a certain freedom in starting from scratch even after all the work I’ve done for the past THREE YEARS! I do have backup files of my old posts, and I’ll be adding them back slowly, but, sadly, I’ve lost all of my comments!!!!! That’s the part that kills me. If you have left me comments in the past, I thank you, thank you, thank you! You will not be forgotten. Now give me new ones!
To tide you over while I’m redecorating, here is the first post from when I moved this blog from But I’m Not A Housewife! to here:
I’m staging an intervention for myself. I’ve just turned 30 and I’m still so domestically challenged that I often just give up. I’m one of those leave-it-for-weeks-until-the-in-laws-are-coming type of people.
And I don’t want to be like this anymore.
Who isn’t happier when she has a clean, fresh home?
My husband and I don’t own a home yet and we don’t yet have children. We plan to change both of those things within the next 5 years. I’m lucky to have a husband who enjoys cooking – when I’m trying my darnedest to learn to enjoy it. I want to give back to my family.
And one more thing: I am the child of a compulsive hoarder. You may have seen the episodes about this phenomenon on Oprah. It’s just as bad as it looks. Thus, I have my work cut out for me!
I want to learn to keep my house clean, fresh, inviting, and cozy.
I’m 30 years old and I vow to change my domestic ways.
It is obvious to me that if I can do this anyone can!
So join me on my journey. Offer me encouragement. Ask me to post photos of my house so that I am accountable. Learn from my mistakes and share your best tips with me.
As I turn over a new leaf, I vow to make journey more fun than chore – if that is even possible!
