After only a week of doing Motivated Moms I can feel my stress level decreasing. I'm sure there will be some days where I just don't feel like doing whatever is on the list, but I'm learning. My house is getting cleaner, one small step at a time.

As for the name, my DH and I were having an argument about housekeeping. He pointed out my clutter in the bathroom. I freaked out on him because there was MOULD growing in his shower. Priorities here! He suggested we should have a list of things that need cleaning. Shocked I said "didn't you look at the list I printed out? I told you about it." He looked confused and when I got it for him he said "Oh that. It said Motivated Moms on it so I figured it was for you." :

ROFL! Did you tell him, "Nice try, buddy!"?

I need to check out motivated moms. I've heard good things about them.

From their website: "A Chore Planning System to help you have a clean and organized home and still have time for yourself!"

It is great for people like me who don't know how, or don't have time to develop their own cleaning "to do" list, but love to have something to check off.

I'm not a mom (yet), but I really like their system. DH uses it, too. I'm good at organizing data and could make a list like theirs, but it would take a long time. Especially if I became perfectionistic about it. So the $7 was WELL worth it.

I just looked at a sample list on their website. It's a great idea, but there's no way I would have time to do all that. Must be for SAHMs. Or at least not for me--I have 3 hours each night from when I get home from work til we go to bed.
