Will I ever get caught up?

I am certainly paying the price for choosing fun over function this weekend!

The laundry is piled up out of the hampers, the whole house needs a good cleaning and OH MY! the clutter! It's going to take a lot of effort to get this place clean!

Tomorrow is Maddie's 8th birthday, so tonight we need to get treats to take into school. Her family birthday party is on Sunday, so the house needs to be in order by then!

I am trying to get little thing done here and there (when the day care kids allow it). I did get one load of laundry done this morning, and was able to vacuum the 1st floor of the house. Got to keep on going!!!!


  1. Happy birthday to Maddie! I know what you mean about the cleaning. Seems like if I take one day off, it takes about a week to get caught up again. I try to stay on top of it as best as I can, and it really helps that Emily does her share of housework too. Do your kids do chores to help out?

  2. My kids are in charge of their bedrooms at this point. Jacob (3) cleans up toys every day. Ryan (6) cleans toys, puts dirty laundry in hamper, somewhat maintains his bed and puts "easy" clean laundry away. Maddie (8) does all of that, plus some extra laundry - plus she changes her sheets, dusts and vacuums.

    It's hard because there is little time for chores since I do daycare from home. In 23 days (yay!) things will change. We'll have a bit more time, and I want the kids to pick up some general housework-chores too. What else do they have to do all summer? :)
