I’m skipping out on the Homemaking Challenge again today. I have had some post-surgery pain the past two days that I didn’t feel was right. I called my doctor about it this morning and she wanted me to come in to get it checked out.
Turns out, I have a small infection. So, they’re treating that and I’m supposed to take it really easy this weekend. It seems that’s the story of my life right now, but it’s good for me to slow down, give myself grace, and learn so much compassion for people who chronically struggle with health issues.
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up
I finished reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up today. Honestly, I think that I loved the first 2 or 3 sections the most. The final section was a little on the weird side again (greeting your home, feng shui, and more).
The sections on why you should declutter and how decluttering can impact other areas of your life was good and thought-provoking.
I especially loved this quote: “The question of what you own is actually the question of how you want to live your life.”
I Guess We’re Starting a Book Club? Or Something!
So I didn’t intend to start a “Book Club” here and I don’t really know that I am. But I really and truly enjoyed reading through The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and blogging through it here, so I thought it would be fun to pick another book to blog through next week.
I picked three books and then asked on Periscope yesterday for the viewers to vote on which book they’d like for me to blog through next week and talk about on my daily Morning Motivation show on Periscope (I’m MoneySavingMom on there, if you’re not already following me!).
The votes are in and I’ll be going through Emily Freeman’s book, Simply Tuesday. I can’t wait to dive into this book — it looks so good!
If you’d like to join me, you can pick up a copy this weekend or borrow one from a friend. We’ll be reading one section per weekday next week.
I’d love to hear from you: would you be interested in me blogging through more books like I did this week? If so, which types of books would you most enjoy me going through?
