Book Study

This Wednesday evening, we are having a girls book study here at our
house. Mrs. Lofgren, Anna and Jubilee will be here, also Mrs. Boone and her daughter, Maureen from choir, and Mrs. Olm and her daughters, Rebekah, Hannah and Suzannah. We're studying Before You Meet Prince Charming by Sarah Mally, and it's really a wonderful book.
We have some cleaning to do (our house is rarely in the state of absolutely clean), and I have to straighten my room (which I'm constantly being told to clean because I don't do it often enough). Now you know my secret. Though I love to organize things, I don't know why it's so hard to keep my room clean. Or actually our room I should say. My sister and I share a room, but she cleans her part more often than I do. ::hangs her head in shame:: Anyway, how I did go from a book study to cleaning? I'm just rambling really. Well, I'm working on my installment of Women of the Bible, so that will probably be my next post.

Until then,
Miriam Rebekah

Well, "clean" is a relative term, you know. It's not that you don't keep your room "clean". It's more like clothes that don't get hung up after wearing, folded laundry that doesn't get put in drawers, books that don't get put back on shelves, CDs that don't get put back in the wallet, jaw clips here, scrunchees there...need I say more?

Love you darlin'-

Miriam,

Don't worry once you have your own home you may find that you clean it more...that is what happened to me! My older sister and I shared a room until she went to college and she was always neater than I was. But now that I have my own home I work hard to keep it neat and clean!

Thanks Michele. That is encouraging. Maybe there hope for me yet...

It's true! I definitely started keeping my room cleaner when I got my own room. Yet, it's still isn't always that great...

I can't wait until tomorrow evening!

I've always been the messier sister. Susan and I used to share a room and our different personalities definitely collided fairly often! I'm better now at least and not quite as messy (right, Sister Dear? *smiles innocently*), but I still have a ways to go...
Your room the way your mother desribes it sounds exactly like my room! It's not really messy-messy, it's just a bit cluttered but nothing that 5 or 10 minutes wouldn't fix up.

I'm reading this book for the second time.
It was a life-changing book for me.
Enjoy!
