More To-Do's

Thank you to all you lovely people who have been leaving comments. What a thankless job, huh?  I apologize for not acknowledging you.  Also, I noticed that I have been added to a few people's friends list. How nice of you!  I'll have to get over and visit you sometime soon. 

Today we are working hard -- with lots of breaks -- to get the house in order.  Most of the time it is just out of control, I suppose because we live in it, and we are here all day every day.   But we could do a lot better.  I "overheard" a blogger (that means I was lurking) who was talking about the supposition of moms of few children, that mothers with more kids can keep a cleaner house because they have more help. The flip side of that is the supposition of us moms of many, who think that mothers with only one or two can keep a cleaner house because they don't have as many children to mess it up, lol.  Hmmm.  I think it depends on the discipline of the mom and her ability/desire to train her children to help out, no matter how many kids she has.  And I don't have much of that.  Discipline, I mean. I have a feeling Susannah Wesley (mom of 13? 15?) never had a messy house. And if you keep up with the Duggars, it doesn't appear that they ever have to spend an entire day putting away and cleaning, either.

Anyway, here's my list today.  Since I am making it late, I get to cross a bunch of stuff off right away.  Hooray!  That makes me feel like I have done a lot more.

Brush teeth
(I told you I have to include these on my list, didn't I?)
put laundry away
(That's the hardest part to get done, and I want it done before Sunday morning!!)
Put Emily and Elisabeth to work on their disastrous bedroom (getting there)
iron Preacher's shirts and
my church clothes
load dishwasher
find "winter" clothes
put them away

bag too-small clothes
mop kitchen and dining room
start and finish newsletter
vacuum bedroom and living room
take meat out
(See, I have to write out every little thing, or we eat eggs for supper!)
get clothes in order for church in the morning

Okay, sorry about the uninteresting post.  I am just using you for my organizational notebook!

Let all things be done decently and in order.

  1. I feel so much better. Really!! I thought I was the only one out here that doesn't keep a clutter-free, messy-free home. I thought I was the only one who just really doesn't like housework that much. I have to work at it all the time. I agree with you - having 1 child or 12 - it all depends on how it's handled. I have a problem with stacks of books and magazines. Everywhere! I'll spend a day purging again and it will be under control for a while. But only for awhile. *sigh*

    Oh, don't you love the Duggars?!! I just truly love that show and their website. I have ordered their book from Amazon - it will be out in December - and I can't wait to read it. I recently got the "Jon & Kate plus 8" book. I watch that show and the "Little People, Big World", too. I think I've mentioned this before, haven't I? Sorry!! LOLOL

    Thanks for making me feel better about myself! (((HUGS))

    God bless you ~ Julie
