I am not sure what has gotten into me, but lately I became a bit conscious about my house. I suddenly want it to feel more like a place I can call home rather than a place I sleep and eat at. Nothing big, just new kitchen towels and toothpaste / toothbrush holder, etc. But now I am thinking about wallpapers (purple ones if Sophia will have her way) and bathroom racks (I suppose the only solution to small spaces really).
For as long as I remember, I have never been bothered with clutter and mess and all that. My mother once asked me right after our house was cleaned if I do not feel more relaxed or something, and (in all honesty) I told her it felt the same. I do not know what this is, but maybe I can keep this up. It kind of feels nice. I still do not think it makes me any more of a woman or anything (hey, I have a biological daughter!), but it makes me feel better, mainly because I know I am improving.
I was not aware how my domestic attitude has affected my daughter, but lately she has been saying things like, “Hey Mommy, the place is more spacious! It is cleaner!” She likes it, too. And maybe just for her, I will keep this up.
What kind of change (hopefully for the better) have you noticed about yourself?
