Simple Homemaking Plan Week 23 of 2012

This post may contain affiliate links.

As I sit down to write the menu for the week, I’m writing out my 4 weekly “to do” lists (personal tasks, blogging tasks, cleaning chores, less common maintenance cleaning tasks).   It’s helping me to accomplish things that easily get pushed aside otherwise, even if I don’t get them all checked off!    
The first week of both kids being home went ok.  Admittedly I only had them by myself for 3 days. :-) The most stressful thing was keeping Little One out of all the Legos.  The organized ones have been all put away and we’ll continue putting the pieces into sets later this summer. 

My next two weeks are extremely crazy so I’ve been trying to get the house in order and get my.  Yesterday when I woke up from my nap (Little One is still having night terrors) my hubby had washed all the dishes, baked cookies and was mopping the kitchen floor (it was horrible!).  When I came home from church that afternoon he had nearly finished organizing the kids’ toys in the family room and cooked dinner!  Combined with his shopping trip Saturday with the kids I nearly melted at how much effort he went to in order to make things easier for me.  No ladies, I’m sorry you can’t have him – he’s already taken 😉

This week’s maintenance chores in addition to daily functioning cleaning chores:

  • organize and cull the kids’ toys
  • clean out my purse
  • vacuum couches
  • 15 minutes daily tidy after the kids go to bed 

See? Nothing too involved, just tasks that will help me stay on top of things at home instead of letting the week slip away from me because none of those things seem pressing to be done immediately. <p>Subscribe to RSS headline updates from: <a href=””></a><br/>Powered by FeedBurner</p>
