So yesterday and today we are catching up on housework. After Christmas unwrappings, new toys to find a place for, and a kitchen that needs help... our home looks like a tornado hit it. It is slowly coming together. yesterday I spent it focusing on the dishes more. today I am working in the individual rooms. today will definitely be a timer kind of day as I am lacking the umph to race through and get it done. It does help some to have it sunny outside today though. Last few days it has been extremely cold,rainy, and ugly out making it feel gloomy inside too. It is only a quarter to 10 and the house is already making some headway.
so far I have gotten accomplished:
tidying living rm (still working on it)
1 load of laundry folded,put away
1 load of whites started
toys moved to kids rms
swept living rm, christmas trash thrown away outside
girls tidied bedrm
cleared table off in kitchen
will add to this list as the day goes on. we will also be using chorewars.com to help motivate kids, mom to help today. LOL What kind of motivators do you use to get things done around the house for your kids?? Sometimes sticker charts work here as well.. depending on the kids moods. timer works well for them as well, or sweeping stuff off floor into a pile and set timer. what isn't cleaned up when it beeps, gets thrown away. haha that gets them moving!
