How is everyone doing today? I've got about 3/4 of the kitchen cleaned, 3/4 of the dining room table cleaned, 1/2 of daughter's room cleaned and a load of wash unfolded, a load waiting to go to the dryer and about 5 loads to be done. Still I made an amazing amount of progress this morning. DD (5 years old) heard the timer going off and joined in helping me pick up and clean for about an hour. She thought it was HUGE fun. We're keeping this game!

Off to do another 15 minutes and then run some errands. Keep up the 15 minutes, y'all!

lol yep. Got everything done except the laundry (that was still damp when I went to do it, so its drying again) - HALF DONE 7:15 pm kiddos just went to bed, 8:09 pm DONE!

Adding cleaning the bathroom to the 15 minute list - HALF DONE 7:15 pm, picked up the clothes off the floor (was bath night) and sprayed down the commode, letting it soak! 8:09 pm DONE!

My big project today is scrubbing the floors, and that has to wait until later this afternoon (definitely more than 15 minutes). MAYBE NOT TODAY... 8:09 Scrubbed bathroom floor, playroom floor, and part of the hall - thats it for tonight!! =)

1) DONE! Fold/put away two loads of laundry (the second will be coming out of the dryer).

2) DONE! Put leaf back in kitchen table (in preparation for company).

3) Organize Control Journal (Household SOP).

4) IN PROCESS Clean kitchen garbage can.

5) Sweep and mop if I have time.


I think my greatest accomplishment today was that I took a much needed nap.

Ok, Tomorrow I actually have to clean. My in-laws just moved in so Im going to clean some since they don't really have time (both work full time, insane hours). I figure since they are being nice enough to give me a place to crash and food for the girls and me this is the least I could do for them. Heres the list of things I want to get done tomorrow(basically Im cleaning the bedroom and area I use so its not so messy and disorganized as well as common areas the girls like to play in):
1) laundry- clothes and bedding-
2)Clean the bedroom Im sleeping in with the girls
3)Vaccuum bedroom
4) Remake bed
5) Clean window
6)organize closet (living out of suitcases isn't a strong point of mine)
7)Sweep front walkway
8) Fold up tent/put away
9) Appointment to get ID at 9am
10) try to stop by Walmart and get a costume for DD2- the one I thought I had didn't fit her. Also pick up a memory card reader so I can load pictures.
11) load and post pictures if I can get a memory card reader.
not going to happen today, works to busy for my inlaws (and I don't trust myself to drive yet since Im not use to driving over here any longer)

Thats it, it seems a lot but the areas are really small and their washing machine is really big (it can do all the clothes I brought with me in one load, of course I didn't bring much). Im guessing it will take me less than 2 hours to do it all.

It's good to see you back on the thread for a bit, OkiMom! Sending productivity Vibes your way and wishing you to get your tasks done in 2 hours without distractions. I often encounter distractions. LOL.

Okay, my first session is for administrative tasks. (YUCK!)

Thanks Poetry. With two kids two and under, 2 dogs, a cat, a ferret, tons of reptiles and a bunch of inlaws distractions are a given. Luckily Im almost done.

The amazing progress that I made on Friday has completely been undone. I'm going up and down with an upper respiratory infection - thought I was better end of last week, crashed over the weekend. Let's see if in the next 15 minutes I can get a load of laundry put away, 2 loads folded, one started and the clothes from the washer to the dryer.

I wouldn't push yourself too hard. After all, there will always be laundry and chores to do. I would just rest up and catch up when you are feeling well enough.

I hope you feel better soon...
