I worked out today. But not the way you may be thinking. You see, my stove is a mess! I mean a nasty, cooked on, brown mess. I know, I know. I should just clean it every time I use it, but with 4 little ones and a house to maintain you'll understand how things like that slip through the cracks.
It was a good work out. My arms are sore. My back is a little sore too. And I smell like the lovely cleaner I used to scrub, and scrub, and scrub the burner covers. Although I'm sore, I am proud. I feel like I just ran a marathon. Not physically, but emotionally. I accomplished something. Something hard. And now when I look at my stove, I am happy and can spark a tiny smile knowing that I did that!!
Now, to keep it that way. I have a wonderful husband, who is not afraid to help clean. He is the most helpful husband I know. He vacuums, sweeps, does dishes and does laundry. But he doesn't do stove tops! You see, we have a system. After I cook dinner, and we eat. I go off an bathe the children and get them ALL ready for bed while he cleans up. It works out great! And I am thankful for the help. I can't imagine having to bathe all the kids, brush and floss their teeth, put their pajamas on, read stories for all, prayers and hugs and kisses and then....CLEAN the kitchen!! Did I mention how thankful I am to have a husband who cleans!!
So, I've decided that after I'm done cooking, before I serve everyone dinner, I am going to clean the stove! Then it will be done and I won't have to say my only workout for the day was scrubbing the burners!!
On another note! I received my Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Stretch Oil in the mail today! I will give a try for the next few days and then post my review along with a giveaway from Earth Mama Angel Baby!! Stay tuned!!
Happy Scrubbing and Blessings,
