My dh gets paid every two weeks, too. Doesn't that just make it soo hard to go food shopping?! Especially if you aren't totally disciplined financially and kind of struggling with money on top of that....like we are.
As far as being organized, we still have a very long way to go. But we're working on it! We spent the better part of this weekend up on our third floor that is supposed to be the play room, but turned into the dump-it-here room, and whatever gets dumped starts spilling back down the steps and into the hallway.
It was awful, I was looking around the room thinking "wow, we made so much progress" then realized that if a stranger came up they'd think "wow, what a mess!".
: It's one of those things that have to get worse before they get better...
The living/dining rooms are pretty straightened, not clean, but picked up. The kitchen/laundry room are a disaster. But one thing at a time, right?! The bedrooms aren't too bad, except for my daughters, her room is turning into the dressing room where all the laundry is getting dropped off. Not working out so well there, either. That's next!
Trying to stick to my routines, and we're doing well with the kids routines and the morning routine, but everything else isn't that lucky...And tonight I go back to work for the first time after having the baby, so that's not going to help the house! I feel bad for my poor dh...yikes!
