Today so far:

 

  • dishes - unloaded and loaded dishwasher
  • cleaned the sink
  • 10 min cleanup in living area
  • refilled toilet paper holder
  • cleaned up some sticky spots on the kitchen floor
  • went thru DD's 2 main toy bins and pulled out all the LEGOs for a major declutter project.  They are all in a box now TBD what we'll do with them.  She doesn't even play with them.
  • diapers stuffed / diapers air drying
  • 1 load of clothes laundry folded and put away
  • 1 load washing

 

I think I earned myself some lunch while watching tv.  orngbiggrin.gif

Washed dishes, wiped down counter tops
Decluttered a bit
Vacuumed
Mopped entryway in the living room
Picked up my slob husband's crap that he just left in the living room
Made my bed
Washed laundry (had a wet sheet from a certain leaky little guy, and our couch cover needed cleaning)
Put away laundry from yesterday
Stripped diapers. I would LOVE to get my boy back in cloth. I think maybe our washer doesn't get hot enough to kill all the bacteria since as soon as we moved here (end of May) he started having problems with cloth. He did fine before. I think he might have inherited C's ultra-sensitive skin (even if I change hourly, if I don't alternate with disposables, he gets nasty sores that sometimes bleed when we wipe) so the regular cotton prefolds might just be a little too itchy for his bottom, and the combination of that and whatever won't come out of the dipes is causing the problem. I'm going to cut up a fleece blanket into strips and line his diapers with those and see if it helps. I hate using disposables. I cringe every time I have to use one. Anywho, hopefully the stripping from today will work!

I ended up running errands much of the day... got very little done here aside from dinner and two loads of laundry.

So tired tonight i dozed off on the couch and woke up to a destroyed house.

The movers called this afternoon and changed the date they are coming from Saturday afternoon to Thursday afternoon so we lost 2 days!! Its going to be really busy especially since Im not canceling the farm trip tomorrow (we have had to reschedule 3 times, 2 times because I was sick and this morning because the kids slept in.. I don't want to put it off again and end up not going).. Im really getting to old for late nights and early mornings!

 

Time to go get the baby to go to sleep (he took a really LATE nap..) then finish cleaning up the living room. After that I need to look and see just how much we have left to do.

I haven't achieved much today. I got up at six, showered and all that jazz. Then had breakfast (glass of milk so early in the morning) and left for university. When I got back home I cooked some macaroni and apple sausage curry, I checked for jobs, applied for a few, and then I've been spending the afternoon being absolutely unproductive.

 

I blame my rumbling stomach. It has been rumbling non-stop since this morning of some reason no matter what I eat.

 

Anyhow, off to help cook dinner. We're having pork filet in sweet and sour sauce served with pineapple and rice.

Almost done my kids room! waiting on some boxes so I can pack up most of their books and toys. we are going to move in the next while (hopefully sooner than later), and I really want to get some things packed and put away so I don't have to clean and organize it all at the same time! I have already packed up their playmobil into a big heavy duty zippered bag from IKEA. They want the LEGO left out but other than that, some bedtime books and the things needed for home-schooling,  im going to put it all away. I find if I do this they are so happy when they see it again, so it works multiple ways!

 

also worked on my laundry room this am. got all but one load washed and dried. de-cluttered the shelf and vaccumed the floor.. i have a few bags of baby clothes to give away and some shoes in a bag to sort out and try on the kids..they are stored on the change table that now is used as a shelf in there. i have a few loads of washing to sort and put away.

 

also mopped the bathroom floor. not intentionally...my cat jumped up on a shelf and knocked over something glass filled with liquid. charming...

When I was a kid, the Lego was definitely the best toy I knew. No other toy could be both a strange robot for my brother to play with, a beautiful tranquil garden (complete with guard house against said robot) and a dog kennel for my sisters giant Bellville puppies. :)

 

As for that floor...perhaps the cat was trying to be helpful in its own way? "This be clutter! Gone with you!" Not its fault it has no proper hands to grip and move things with, is it? And in any case, never hurts to mop the floor. Which reminds me, I really should at least vaccuum ours today.

 

 

I began my day with a phone call from the work agency, telling me they wanted some more information. Not too hopeful about actually getting the job, but it is a move in the right direction at least. :)

 

So far I have:

- Got up and dressed, all the way to sheepskin slippers (very good for avoiding calluses).

- Made my bed.

- Folded away clothes floating around.

- Folded towels I used yesterday, and put them on my hamper, so I know they are okay to use again for me but no one else uses them.

- Had lunch/brunch in the form of two toasts, a glass of milk and two eggs. A bit excessive, perhaps, but I've been only having dark bread and butter for the last half month and we got money today. So a bit of celebration was in order. :)

- Made dinner. Left over apple and curry sauce, with macaroni. Very quick (all but ten minutes) and delicious.

 

Let's see what the rest of the day brings. :)

Good morning! :)

 

I finally was able to replace my laptop...yay! I've missed this thread! I haven't gone back to see what I missed, but hope everyone is doing well and being productive. :)

 

I am looking at a very light schedule in the coming weeks and am so welcoming it! I just feel like all I want to do is be at home right now.

Today, I would like to:

...get boys to school

...buy a new binder and some pencils for my dd and drop it off to her

...go to prenatal visit

...general pick up of house

...some paper/computer work before kids get home

My husband is going to make dinner tonight, buffalo chicken sandwiches...I can't wait!  eat.gif

Then, I'm going to spend the night helping a good momma friend who just had a baby. love.gif

Good work everyone!!!

So far today I've:

 

 

  • Up with the baby at 630/made coffee/breakfasted all of us
  • thrown diapers in the wash
  • ran the dishwasher
  • made an irish soda bread 

 

It might be a slow lazy day for me.  Hopefully once the diapers are out I can get some more laundry in.

Jumping in on this thread. I have at times battled, at times surrendered to, disorganization all my life, and now that I live in a real house with a husband and baby, I don't wanna do it anymore! I just started doing the FlyLady thing almost 2 weeks ago and am seeing some positive changes. I like this setting the timer for 2, 5, 15 minutes thing. So I'm subscribing.

Ok, Ive been horrible at keeping my lists updated but I have been doing things.. We are about 4/5ths of the way done with the apartment. Right now Im at my Inlaws doing laundry with my middle girl sleeping in the other room, my baby is with my husband over at our apartment (about a block away) working on cleaning and my oldest is spending a special night with my inlaws at the hotel (its her birthday tomorrow and shes been begging for a sleepover with grandma).. I need to get a few things done while I wait for laundry to get done..

 

3 loads laundry

finish my oldest daughter's birthday dress for tomorrow

try to finish the scripture tote for tomorrow (my oldest asked that I finish her dress and not worry about the tote until after the move but I want to try to finish it anyway since I have to be up)

 

Thats it! Hopefully I can get it done if my pets allow it. They haven't seen me since yesterday so they are ALL over me.. Anyone who says cats don't show affection when you get home has never met me kitty., Hes climbing all over me, licking me, head butting me etc. The dog would be all over the place as well but I banished him to the back yard so he didn't break anything. I guess my pets missed me.

Welcome to the thread, Katie. I do hope you will get a grip on your house, little by little, and that eventually keeping it somewhat okay will be a breeze. Just remember, that there will be days when the dishes are towering over your head, there's nothing to wear and the dust bunnies are chasing each other over the floor trying to escape your little one. That is okay, just get back on track one little step at a time. :)

 

 

Okimom, that is so cute with your pets! My cat greet me in the morning, sort of going: "Oh, you are awake! Now you pet me...no, not like that. No. No. Hm, nah, I want to play now. Your fingers look like little mice. Attack!' But he is only six months old, so hopefully he will get over the "attack part" soon with a lot of stern telling him.

 

Anyhow, today I have:

- Got up and dressed to slippers

- Fluffed my bed and am airing it before making it.

- Drank 1/4 glasses of water (working my way up to 8 a day).

- Made tea and had a dark bread cheese sandwich for breakfast.

- Wrote down and sent my sister my sourdough recipe, including careful instructions.

- Written down all my schedules into my calendar, so I have them all in one place (and in a hard copy).

- Rebooted laundry

- Rinsed the dishwasher filter.

- Put on a dishwasher.

- Watered plants upstairs.

- Drank 2/4 & 3/4 glasses of water.

- Emptied and refilled dishwasher.

- Emptied sink.

- Wiped down stove top

- Wiped down dishwasher front.

- Had lunch.

 

I do plan to:

- Finish graphic assignment for a course I am taking.

- Water plants downstairs.

- Clean table.

- Do 30 minutes of indoor exercise/walking.

- Drink 4/4 glasses of water.

- Relax.

- Have dinner.

- Put out clothes for tomorrow.

- Sleep at a decent hour.

Ok, so the past two nights I had an extra 5 year old (DIABETIC!!!) over for sleepovers, and wow was that exciting! The house is mostly fine, I stayed on top of dishes and floor, but we still have a tent set up in the living room. :P I'm bribing my oldest that if she does her new homeschool work (writing and reading and caterpillar studies) that she can sleep in the tent tonight. 

 

Today I need to;

~Get together paperwork for Medical (that I've already filled out but they SWEAR they didn't get)

~Write an email to an upset customer (who no longer fits a custom piece because she gained weight   :(  )

~Clean my sewing room

~Purge a bit out of my wardrobe

~Take girls to art studio

~Do a sketch of my first bridal order

~Reading my library books

 

There's more but my oldest wants to play on the computer. :)
