I need this group.
15 minute thingy a little while ago - I changed the bed sheets, folded some laundry, started a load and put one in the dryer. Tidying downstairs of the diningroom table.
HOW CAN I GET THE REST OF MY FAMILY TO BE MORE TIDY AND ORGANIZED?????
It's weird. I grew up in a household where both my parents were pretty organized and tidy (or at least I knew they *could* be). But my dh and dd1 don't do things like shut a drawer after they open it, or shut a cupboard after they open it. They both take things off and leave them RIGHT THERE where they put them. That's hard. I never grew up with people like that, we all put things back where they belonged most of the time. Sigh. Breathe..... let it go...... [thanks for letting me vent - any words of wisdom? it's just that it's stressful for me sometimes. Anyhow, that's not what this thread is for!]
To do more 15 min stuff - the upstairs bathroom toilet and sink needs attention.
