Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Maintaining the Clean Areas...

Well, so far I have been able to keep my girls' room cleaned. This week I have worked on maintaining their room so that it stays clean. I also organized their bedroom with baskets to make it easier to clean.

Here is what I have in those baskets:

  1. Bags: diaper bags, back packs, purses.
  2. Stuffed animals.
  3. Doll clothes: brushes, hair accessories, doll shoes.
  4. Baby dolls.
  5. Miscellaneous plastic toys.
  6. Bucket for legos.
  7. Bag for plastic animals.
I used an assortment of different containers and laundry baskets, just what I had around the house. It has made cleaning a cinch.

And today I am glad I picked up their room...Why? you ask? Well, we have kittens...four 9-week-old kittens and my DD loves the kittens sooooo much that sometimes she sneaks them up to her room!!!

Now, today I didn't find a kitten, per se...I found evidence that the kitten had been there. Yep! You guessed it! The sweet precious little kitten used the girls' bedroom floor for a litter box...and I got to clean it up! YUCK! Thankfully I am past the stage of getting sick every time I see or smell something that nasty.

So if you have been thinking about trying to maintain your cleaned rooms, don't think twice...JUST DO IT!!! For you may find some yucky surprises if you don't!!! (O;

I am trying to laugh about the story...but it hasn't hit my funny bone yet!
