In lieu of medicine Mondays on MommyMd.org I wrote about taking the time to play. I abandoned the idea of cleaning the kids rooms and played trains instead. I got that sweet picture above and it seemed to capture the lazy hazy days of the weekend. All was good. That is until the dishes overwhelmed me and the pear dropped on the floor. And stayed there.
I started to get ahead by adopting Flylady’s attitude and just set the timer and clean or do whatever for that time allotted.
10 minutes with the dishes. 5 minutes with the computer. 2 minutes for a shower. 1 minute for eating dinner. 15 seconds reading a book….
We were actually getting ahead and then insanity hit. In the 20 minutes I had before piking Blue Eyes up from the bus stop yesterday I emptied their entire room… and plopped it in the hallway.
