A Great Idea!

I had to hurry and write this (at midnight:45) so I wouldn't forget. My sister-in-law was at my house today watching the Utah vs. TCU game while our hubbies were attending the game. Sadly, the Utes lost... by a landslide! But, better luck next time, right? Let's hope so.

While she was here, she told me about something that she has going within her ward. I thought is was such a great idea! There's a group of 4 ladies (she is included) in her ward that get together once a week and help each other. What a novel idea, no? They rotate homes and whatever the hostess needs done on her week, they do. It can be anything from painting a wall, cleaning a house, sorting recipes, pulling weeds, folding clothes, etc. If the hostess doesn't have anything in particular that needs to be done, they can just get together for a couple hours of scrapbooking or something of the sort.

It's simple, really. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the ones I never think of on my own. And simplicity is sometimes perfection. Why do we always try to make things more difficult than they need to be?

I just loved this idea and had to share!

That is a great idea. I need to actually get to know 4 people in my ward first though. :)
