I woke up this morning thinking that the first Monday of the year was the worst. Here we are at the end of a long holiday vacation and it’s time to get back to work and school. The thing is, is that I found myself very excited about something totally unexpected; I’m excited to get back to my job as a “housewife” most of all.
Since I work (2/3’s of the time) and teach my kids at home, I spend a LOT of time in the house. It’s my domain from 8:30 – 7:00 while Mr. Modern June is off at work. As much as I love having him here for the bulk of 10 days, it’s really great to get back into normal routines. Combine that with it being a new year and a new start and it’s time to clean.
So this morning, instead of opening the shop up, doing the dreaded inventory and starting to homeschool again, I’m going to nest. My goal is to get my kitchen looking as good as it did the day Meghan McSweeney took this gorgeous photo for At Home for Modern June.
