 Woke up this morning and the house really needed cleaning.  I came up with a to do list for the family, the two oldest can help.  I got a kitchen timer and put it on for 30 min and we clean as fast as we can.  Then when it goes off we get a 10 min break, doing whatever we want.  It seems to be working really well we have gotten a lot done already, and with no argueing.  We are doing our school work this evening and they couldnt be more excited.  Whew!!

 We have done the 30 minute thing here to & it works but I don't always remember to do it! I need to make it part of everyday so that things get done instead of forgotten.
