I have had a really busy weekend, we were not home much. My house did not get the proper care this weekend.

Today I prepped the kitchen so ds can work on it when he gets home. All the laundry is folded, ready for the kids to do when they get home.

We don't have our tree up yet, but the plan is to do it tonight.

Have a nice day everyone.

I am getting nothing done since I hurt my back. I am babying it so hopefully in a day or two I will be myself again.
Don't stay were you are tolerated, go where you are celebrated!

Bluebird--I am sorry that your back is hurt. I can't imagine.

We (the kids and I) were at a wrestling tournament Friday and Saturday for a total of 20 hours. My oldest competes on the High School team, we always go to watch him. This was one of longest I had ever been to. My back hurt from sitting on the bleachers for so long. So I can't imagine really hurting my back.

We finally put up the tree tonight. My 7 year old help put on the ornaments, his way. About 7 ornaments on each lower branch. I need to go thru and fix the tree. I also need to put out the other Christmas stuff.

I have found that we can touch up our bathrooms three times weekly and it keeps them in nice shape.

I would like to do better on a night time routine of getting the house together.

Morning routine is good to start of our day.

It is true that little things can make a big difference to the look of a room like running the vacuum makes a room look so much better.

I have found even working 15 minutes in each room is a great help. It sounds like it should never work. But it sure does help. One of the things that helps me with my morning routine is to have everything (my clothes, what I need for my errands) ready for the next day.
