I've spent the day cleaning...and there is a marathon of picking up clutter, cleaning out dust bunnies and sort out years of accumulated stuff yet to do. It's like a 12-step program with me. One day at a time. Todd says he can see the difference. I just see the tasks yet to be tackled. But I am grateful for a day to clean. And it's only 5:00 p.m. so I have time yet to invest in this immense undertaking. Yep, one day at a time, one task at a time.
