Hi *Bejeweled*! Congrats on your spurts of productivity. :-)

 

Our entire household is feeling under the weather today. DH and I made a big pot of soup. We also made our veggie broth from the scraps we've been freezing: 52 cups of it! I washed all the dishes while DH gave DS a bath. Other than those things, I took a bubble bath and read poetry. And then I read some more poetry. reading.gif

 

I'm planning to fold some laundry and transfer 2 loads to the dryer--and maybe to fold/put away those 2 loads. But that's it.

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!
