In order for me to kinda stay on top of-or at least not fall too far behind on my housework I have to have a daily chore chart for myself. :o) It helps me to make sure I get everything done that needs to be done, and not get too far behind, so it doesn't take very long.
School (of course)
laundry (there is pretty much always some kind of laundry to wash!)
clean kitchen and pick up random clutter
Clean Downstairs bathroom
My sheets and room
Dust (The girls' chore)
Clean girls' room and wash their sheets (They help)
Vacuum and dust stairs
project day (SUPPOSED to be finishing the girls' quilts....)
It is a lot harder to get my upstairs chores accomplished when I'm
working around 2 people sleeping/napping during the day. :o/ I'm not
100% successful every week on sticking to my schedule like I should, but
I do pretty good.Seems like someone is always sleeping around here! The
list helps me fell better knowing that I have most of it covered, and
it doesn't take long when I break it up like this.
