HI there. I took the day off yesterday mostly kinda beat when I think it took 17 hours to do both rooms with the kids this weekend!! Could have been faster by myself but they need to be responsable for the horrible state of those 2 rooms. The rooms look amazingly better and I know having 3 kids plus 2 small ones on a regular basis lends to way too many toys and junk 🙂 but we are done and every chanace I get I remind them how long we spent and say lets not do that again. What I did was put all of each girls lets say barbie stuff in a bag and tied it up with a bow now each one has their own bag and can easily get to the barbie stuff and when they are done each puts said stuff away in their box and gets out something wlse bagged the same way. Keeps them from tearing out entire box contents to find that ONE thing and way easier to clean. Same for the small ones. I had each one pick 20 things to keep the rest went into trash if broken or the other pile .Now Leslie I got this idea from you if the other one seen something they’d like to have they shopped from that pile and said thing became theirsbut still only the 20 things. so they got new toys and the room got cleaned. Besides with Christmas coming I’m sure there will be new additions but we will add them to the bag system. Still need to do the shed but way too tired to do that anytime soon:) Jordan has agreed to come help move furnitureso I can have my larger tree. Sweet boy knows his mamma loves her tree.
Gotta take Heather to the Dr. today if she remembers. I got a few pocket calls from her phone while Brian was out and I didnt have transportation and they were not nice at all. Her “man” threw her phone and broke hence the calls. of course she made excuses for him Makes me sick to my stomach as I seen more than I’d like to have with my parents Thank God my Brian isen’t like that. He asked to speak with her man and he wouldnt talk to him, Jordan says Mom want me to go take care of it give him a taste of his own medicine? I said no violence wont solve thi may make us feel better for a brief time but if she stays ther we cant do anything about it since she gets to make her own choices. so ther was my day.I did get some dusting ,laundry, sweeping and cat box cleaned yesterday. Dont know about today yet as I feel like being lazy tioday. Hope you are all well. I’m off to pick up the small ones Melissa has a flat tire.
Love and hugs to you both,
