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.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

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.

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.<br><br>
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.
