Thanks for asking. I'm getting over being sick. I would feel better if DS would sleep better. :-( Hopefully, it's just a phase. He seems to think the middle of the night is the time to turn our apartment into a playground. He's a sweet boy, but I am just wiped out from lack of good, quality sleep.

Hi Bejeweled and PoetryLover!


Lack of sleep is the pits Poetry...it's hard at that age, lucky they are so gorgeous isn't it.


Well I got the floor mopped at least today, which is good it really needed it.

Got some cards made and gifts wrapped and and all posted off...had to run to the post office, because our car is being fixed, so no car for 2 weeks.

It's so hard to keep my focus in so many places at once!  Taking care of the kids and their needs, fulfilling my needs with exercising, keeping up with the house and the food.  It's such a juggling act at times! 


Today, I will:

clean the kitchen counters!

mop and clean the bathrooms

take the kids to a fun exercise class (I've already promised them)

do the dishes

sweep the floors

pick up in general

30 minute run/walk


We're leaving in an hour to go to the class, so I'll try to at least get one bathroom clean before getting everyone ready to go.

Hi clutterwarrior and Veganmama!


Veganmama, it is difficult, indeed, to strike a balance.


So far today I have completed two 15 minute sessions:


Made the bed

Made breakfast

Washed the dishes

Cleaned the counter

Put DS's toys away

Folded and put away a load of laundry

Transferred a load pf laundry to the dryer

Put the diapers through the first wash


I'm going to attempt to exercise now while DS naps.

Hi girls. smile.gif


Veganmama it sure is a balancing act!  I have a certain degree of ADD so I find it really hard to keep focus, I will go off exercising or doing my artwork and completely forget I need to prepare dinner or clean or help DS with his homework.  So I find writing lists here really helps to keep my mind on what I need to get done.


Today so far:


put dishwasher on, forgot to last night...



to do:


do laundry

do more laundry

make beds

do some decluttering

clean microwave

prepare dinner

clean up kitchen

Well, my list got sidetracked due to some mischievous children painting my floor another random objects. Soo, we canceled the class and I've only managed the dishes.

I'm having a coffee now and will see what I can check off my list tonight and in the morning.

Looks like you ladies are doing well!

Got the sheets off DS's bed, about to hang out some clothes to dry and put sheets in wash.



post #451 of 1753

Hung out the clothes, one sheet dried, another in the dryer, and about to hang out second lot of washing.


Also I am finally clearing and decluttering a shelf in my gift cupboard....embarrassing how long it has been such a mess!

post #452 of 1753

I'm on a roll today...must be the nice weather today energising me!


Got another load hung out, DS's bed made with clean sheets, and done about half of the shelf now.

Hey everyone! Haven't been on much lately since DH's extended family was in town. Im SOOO glad they are gone now and it will be a while before anyone else visits. Not that I don't love them its just whenever we all get together there is way to much drama. Im beginning to miss Japan, we didn't get sucked into family arguements when we were way out there, I decided to declare myself Swizerland though, I refuse to be drawn into their drama or choose sides in it.


On the bright side we have a van now! Its a relief not to have to find someone to give us a ride when we need to go anywhere.


Today I need to do some picking up. DH took the girls with him to Seaworld to spend time with his family (the ones that live in Florida) but i stayed home. DS got a sunburn from being out in the sun so Im being a "pain" and saying hes not allowed in the sun until its completely healed.


Things to do today:

- pick up the house

- organize the toys

- shopping list

- vacuum apartment

- fold two loads of laundry

- wash table clothe, dry and put on table

- get everything together for church tomorrow and make sure nothing needs to be pressed/washed.
