put away laundry

clean the bathroom

lessons for the day

work on my garden if it doesn't rain. I see the sun peeking out though so I think I might be in the clear for  a wee bit of time.

I did a lot of cleaning yesterday so not a ton to do today. I like doing it on Sunday before the race so I can relax a bit on Monday hehe.

I mostly just do laundry. I have 5 kids who do chores. It's the first of the month so I have to pay bills and do the monthly budget today (oh yay) and then go to the grocery store. Then I'll probably go to the lake and run a few miles before I leave for school at 3:30. That is my day today.

My family refused to help me - df would destroy the kitchen I had just spent hours cleaning, the kids would leave toys in the living room, and crumbs alllllll over my freshly cleaned floors. I went on a cleaning boycott, and they started complaining about the house being messy. Long story short, we now have someone to come in and clean our house once a week, and df pays for it :)

I'm drinking coffee. That's as far as I've gotten. Laundry is a priority though. I do know that. Lol

I know for me it's easier to divide the chores up throughout the week. One day I'll mop, one day I'll dust, etc etc. That way it's not so overwhelming.

I do vacuum every day though

I don't make lists, life's too short.  Children are not going to remember how clean my house is, they're going to rememeber quality time.  I clean, but no way I'm going to make myself stressed and crazy about it.

Why don't  you spread it out? Do 1 or 2 rooms a day and keep the same schedule each week.
