I am a single mom who works fulltime and I have two school age kids. I have a couple of suggestions that might help.
I have written down a morning schedule, evening schedule, dinner routine and I listed SPECIFICALLY what clean your room means. I have my kids check the list because I get tired of reminding them over and over (One has ADD and the other ADHD). The lists are posted on the frig.
I also have decided to make a routine for meals, so I have less to think about during the hectic week.
Here is mine for now:
Sunday- Roast (beef or chicken)
Monday- Left overs
Tuesday- Soup and sandwiches
Wednesday- We eat at our church as part of family night activities
Thursday- crockpot meal
Friday- homemade pizza and salad
Saturday- pasta night
I try to throw in a load of clothes every other day to keep up with the laundry. My children are slowly learning to help out as they get older. My house is not the cleanest, but we eat well, have clean clothes and get to bed at a decent hour.
Happiness is not getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got.
