Shabbat Shalom

It's Friday afternoon. I'm majorly craving challah bread. And the Jewish souk. And Jerusalem. And open air markets and streets signs in Hebrew, Arabic, and English, and Sacrament meeting in the Holy Land with pita bread and the best view of your life. And dried pineapple. And shabbat bread.
Click here to see hundreds photos of this heavenly Jewish sabbath bread; make sure your mouth is closed though, because your salivary glands are gonna be working overtime.

And if they aren't, it's high time you made a trip to Jerusalem. :)

Shabbat Shalom!

Lately I have been struggling with messiness. Sigh. My goal for this week (made Sunday night), is to put away the clothes I take off right away. And? Let's just say it's obviously a goal for a reason...

It's not just clothes that I have a problem with either. I cleaned up all the random stuff in our living room on Sunday afternoon, and by Monday afternoon stuff was somehow strewn all over again! Corey and I know we're not the neatest people ever, but we don't consider ourselves total pigs (aka really messy people).

We were brainstorming and maybe it's just that we don't have specific places for everything. Hence, our backpacks are always out; our scriptures are always out; the laptop and power cord are always out in random places; etc etc etc. Also, we have too much stuff so that complicates the matter as well.

How do you keep your living quarters neat and clean? I'd love any pointers (other than annoying ones that suggest throwing away all our stuff, because I admit that I am a pack rat and fairly attached to a lot of it).
