I need some focus so I'm in!

Right now I just did 10 minutes working on my budget. It still has a ways to go though to get it back to snuff so I'm off to do 10 more

I finished the first (of three) readings.

Looks like there are a few of us getting lots done tonight. WHOO!

I'm off to put my babies to bed. I will be back once that is done.

Well I was all dressed to go to the shops to buy food for the weekend, but it's raining cats and dogs here now, so I think I will set the timer again and do some more decluttering instead.

Ok, all done with the e-mail and talking. I made the girls another snack to hold them over until lunch time (these kids are going to eat me out of house and home I swear) and I rebooted the laundry while I was in the kitchen.. Im going to go make lunch, clean the kitchen and start the pizza dough for tonights dinner. After that Im going to go work on the living room/dining room that needs some cleaning. By the time thats done it will probably be time to restart the laundry, eat lunch and lay the baby down for her nap Between the two it will probably take 2 to 3 10 minute sessions.

Okimom, kids sure can eat can't they...I feel like I am constantly serving up food here too.

OK I got some soft toys into a space bag...(teenage DD wants them stored instead of tossed), and made a bit of space in DS room.

Might have a coffee then do some more....

Clutter- these two are going to eat me out of house and home I swear. I usually make them 3 big meals and 6-9 snacks a day. I don't know where they put it all, especially the baby since she still nurses 8-12 times a day.

Ok, the living room is clean and I rotated the laundry. Im going to go fold the load of laundry and pull out my sewing machine now.

Spent the ten minutes washing dishes and straightening up the kitchen. The kitchen still needs work though.

I just did a short spurt of laundry and packing (we're moving soon). I got one big drawer of my credenza cleaned out and packed up.

I'm a morning person.  We actually do exist.

I REALLY need motivation today! Im soooo tired, all I want to do is take a nap and I haven't been up all that long. Sad I know. Im going to read a couple of books to my girls and then clean the office/TV room. After I clean the office/TV room Im going to start working on packing it up since we are rearranging the house this weekend (we are moving the TV to the living room and using this room as a school room/sewing room/office)
