In honor of my mom's birthday today, I chose to use one her best skills: maximizing resources. If there's one thing I've learned from her, it's that finding balance in life is crucial. Whether it's home versus work life or even figuring out the best way to divi up household chores, finding a way to make it all fit together -- and in a sane way -- is the key to feeling good.
So, after several super busy weeks at work for both Chris and I and company on the way Friday, I called a cleaning service. Instead of stressing out to get things around the house spic and span, all we did was pick up a few things tonight and call it good. No stress...with just a little mess that we won't have to clean up! :)
A little more free time and peace of mind to go along with it...for this, I am thankful.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
