I think I try to do too much stuff.
We have people coming to install a new dishwasher today and I still don't have the house clean.. First thing though, I need to take a shower and get dressed then feed the kids.
Showered, dressed, cleaned up the front room and hall way then vacuumed. Now Im going to go brush hair and get the kids looking presentable then feed the baby.
Took care of the older ones then rotated the laundry. Now off to feed the baby and help the older three put together a puzzle.
The younger two are sleeping and DH took DD2 to her eye appointment so its just DD1 up. Going to go help her clean her playroom and bedroom so that they are clean :)
Yay for a dishwasher! I just did breakfast dishes and cleaned up the kitchen in less than 10 minutes
Up to do today:
-work on planning school (was suppose to start Monday but I had a migraine this weekend and didn't get anything planned so I put it off a week)
-clean up the master bedroom
-clean up the girls room
-put away the mountain of laundry that is cleaning and sitting on the sofa
-finish catching up on laundry
-work on cleaning up the playroom
Trying to take it easy today and relax some.
The playroom is almost done. Im going to take a break to nurse the baby and then Ill finish the playroom and move onto the girls bedroom. Before nursing the baby though Im rotating the laundry.
Off to make lunch then work on cleaning up more.. Lunch dishes, followed by rotating the laundry and finishing up the playroom.
So, once again I didn't get my to dos done yesterday.. Today Ive decided to limit myself to the top 5 things I want to do..
1) finish cleaning the playroom
2) finish cleaning the Master Bedroom
3) catch up on laundry, fold mountain of laundry on couch
4) work on school plans
5) work on DD's birthday presents
The bedroom is done and while I was doing it I cleaned up the hall and girls room so I could vacuum all of it at once.. Made sense since there was a ton of toys in the hall/girls room that needed to go into the playroom before I could finish cleaning it.
I finished cleaning the playroom then realized that the oven was a disaster so I scrubbed it. Don't want to start a kitchen fire (I actually never have, hubby can't say the same thing)
Im almost done with the list.. Not going to be on the rest of the night so my to dos for tomorrow.
1) clean up living room
2) clean both bathrooms
3) organize dresser and bookcase in my bedroom
4) move bookcase from living room (Ive given up waiting for DH to do it so Im just doing it)
5) make muffins
6) make chocolate chip cookies
7) work on school plans
8) print out progressive phonics books
9) work on birthday presents
10) find play food patterns
lucky you ! (for the cleaning ladies....)
Welcome to all newbies, and hello to all oldies...well not literally.
I am so exhausted tonight as I spend the last 6 hours straight cleaning and decluttering my laundry/bathroom (it is combined), as we are getting a new washing machine tomorrow!!
Just had to write down that I had accomplished this job.
I am jumping back in. Time for me to get back into the swing of stuff:
Sent DS1 off to school.
Changed DS2's diaper. Played.
What I have left to do is:
Aargh...what a day. The men turned up with the new machine, and after barely squeezing our old machine out the door, it turned out the new one was too big to get through the door!! So we are going to have to put our washing machine in a different room, which means we have spent all day rearranging stuff and throwing stuff out, to put this machine somewhere, which is currently sitting in front of the front door, in a box so big we can barely inch past it to get in.
ouch, this turn out so bad with the washing machine.... very frustrating !!!!
a friend here had something similar happen on Wedn am (we had playdate at her place since she was waiting for the delivery)
=> there's a new improved system at the end of a tube & it didn't fit the pre-cut hole where it should have
so she' ll have to attend to that before having her dishwasher fitted again ....
haven't done much except my four water points these last few days
because there was a FREE maths forum with 30+ various activities to try (some even suitable for my 5 years old)
so we spent 2 hours there as a family on Th evening & i went back with DS for 2,5 hours yesterday (whose PE teacher was absent in the afternoon)
the noise and constant interaction => just the bare minimum on my return for meal prep. serving/cleaning ....
HI Clutter! Sorry about the washing machine not fitting but at least you can laugh a bit about this later
I almost got everything done yesterday but fell a bit short.. Thats ok..
Hubby is on duty today/tonight so I have a day to work on things..
1) finish organizing bookcase
2) clean off top of dresser
3) finish the linen laundry and remake beds- 1 bed done
4) laminate/put together progressive phonics books
5) finish school plans
6) clean up the mess that the pizza made in the kitchen
7) Iron hubby's and DS's suits
8) clean up around the house and vacuum
9) do diaper laundry
10) pack a diaper bag and read the lesson for Sunday School
11) defrost meat for dinner tomorrow
