Today was the Super Bowl….of chores… at my house.
Seriously. I have been hard at work all day, people.
I’m trying to get things more organized and balanced around my house. Honestly, that’s always my goal, but I usually get sidetracked by reading a lot of books, commenting on y’all’s blogs, watching Psych or something else equally more interesting than getting my house in order.
But, today was a different story. First of all, Ducks and I decided to trade a chore. Technically, laundry is his chore because he kept throwing dirty clothes on top of freshly washed ones that hadn’t been moved from the washer. But, since he wasn’t really handling that chore as regularly as I would have wished… (read: never), he offered to swap me dishes for laundry. And so it was agreed.
And that made me want to get a lot of chores done. I was inspired! I have this chore chart, which I created in hopes of doing all chores once a week.
But….I have never moved all the clips from the left side (the to-do side) to the right side (the completed side) in a week yet. So…this week, I have resolved to get it done. Bathrooms? Check! Laundry? Check! Lunches packed? Check!
Then, I made food for the upcoming week, since I have JL and a wedding photo shoot this week. I made a GIANT amount of soup, which should last us several days, then I made Amanda’s cheese biscuits. I also made our lunch burritos (which I’ll have to tell you about in another post) and some egg muffins for this week’s breakfasts.
So….after all this work, I totally think I deserve some Blue Bell (the only real ice cream!) and a l-o-n-g break. Don’t you?
