  3. I am so happy to see this!! I need to really re-evaluate how I am caring for my home and what my priorities are, and this list is a great place to start. I would love to know more about the book it came from if you don’t mind sharing.


  4. wow, great test! I did pretty good on it, however there were a few that I need to work on. Another great reminder for us!

  5. Well I did the test and I sucked at it all ๐Ÿ™‚ except for question on:
    When you get up in the morning, what do you do?

    I always have a to list for everyday so I now need to work on getting the rest well done!

    We are also finishing of Reno’s so that doesn’t help at all. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I will check back in a week and see if I have improved!!
