  • Straighten up the house. Pick up hubby's socks he never seems to get INTO the laundry basket, take something out for dinner. Those are the everyday things. Laundry on Monday's, everything else gets cleaned as needed.

  • Hmmm lets see....First I wake up DD and feed her breakfast, then it's bath or shower time for her...I usually let her choose which one she wants to take, I jump on CM for a couple of hours while helping DD (4) write her name and the alphabet over and over (I can't afford to send her to preschool) then I start on the house.....

    Pick up all of DH's clothes from the floor in the bedroom cause he just takes stuff off and leaves it wherever it drops lol, vacuum, clean our bathroom, then I go into HIS bathroom (we have seperate bathrooms cause he's a slob and I was tired of him messing up MY bathroom lol) and sweep up all the hair from him shaving, clean the hair out of the sink...yadda, yadda, yadda, then into the living room to clean up the toys and vacuum, and last is the kitchen where I rinse the dishes before I put them in the dishwasher, wipe cabinets and counters and sweep and vacuum, then dinner lol

  • Monday-Friday up at 5:50, get the kids ready for school. Cook breakfast (yes, I actually do this 7 days a week), run laundry, vacuum, make beds, straighten the house (simple tidying which must be done constantly- if you see it out of place, you put it back), sweeping floors (done more times than I can count to prevent the necessity of vacuuming more than 2x a day), tend to the garden, walk the dog, clean the ratitat (we have 4 rats, area is cleaned 3x weekly), clean the bathroom (daily, since I have boys that *still* can't aim worth a shit), spot clean floors if things are spilled. Make lunch, cook supper (no pre packaged/prepared foods in the house), run laundry, clean surfaces (light switches, door knobs, windows, doorways, horizontal surfaces like counters, tables, etc.), did I mention run the laundry?

    All while taking care of my littlest man :) Afternoons are our play time.

  • Wake up early with kids. Get daughter changed and ready for school. Get son changed, up and ready for car ride. Drop off at preschool. Feed breakfast, empty dishwasher, change diaper, do dishes, make lunch, pay bills, scrub bathroom or whatever is left on the list, pick up daughter, feed her lunch, clean from lunch, vaccuum, take out trash, grocery shop, make dinner, break up toddler fight, clean again before husband gets home. feed kids and husband dinner. Bedtime routine, Put kids to sleep. Finish dishes. FINALLY, my shower, load of laundry, prepare for next day. It is 11:30 PM, and I lay down and hope that my insomnia won't keep me up too long. Same thing, everyday.
