You know what. ... No matter how hard I try, I just can't do it all. So I've split it all up. In a previous post I mentioned my new system for keeping my house clean. I had things i would do daily and little extras added in. It really was a great plan but i couldn't keep it up. I got busy and the house suffered.
Keeping a clean house has been a struggle for me. A lot of people tell me "well you have 4 kids". To me that is no excuse. If i had younger kids then i may be more comfortable with that excuse but since my youngest is 8 and my oldest is 14 and they are all old enough to help out, that excuse doesn't fly.
I really have tried everything to keep a clean house. I've tried chore charts, rewards, money, doing it myself. .. You name it I've tried it. Nothing ever works.
So I'm back to giving everyone a room. I've relinquished control of the laundry and laundry room. My hubby now washes and dries the clothes. I fold them and put them away. That in itself has helped a lot. I clean the kitchen full time: dishes and countertops. My kids rotate between the living room, dining room, bathroom, and kitchen floor/trash. Each one of them get a different room every week. If they do it everyday they get paid for their work.
We've had this plan for nearly a month now and so far it's working just fine. The kids are even keeping their bedrooms reasonably clean. Which is a plus.
The pic in this post is of our chore list. I'm writing on my phone so I'm not sure where it will be in the post.
I hope all of you are having a great day!

Hi my friends. I'm not sure how this is going to work out since I am posting from my phone but I thought I would give it a try.
You see, my laptop bit the dust several days ago and I think it's gonna cost more to fix our than to replace it so...
The good news is hubby has a laptop so he may let me use it to blog. I dunno.
Anyway, I wanted to show off my latest finished project. .a handy dandy water bottle carrier. You all know I've been trying to be more active. Part of that is walking. I hate having my water bottle in my hands so I crocheted this carrier. It will hold a good size water bottle. I will wear it as a cross- body bag. It is awesome!
Well that's all for now. Typing on my phone is a pain in the tooshie.
Sending loads of hugs and love your way.
