Before I go on whining about my first world problems, please let me make it clear that I LOVE being able to stay home. I still don”t know if it”s something I want to do in the future, it is what works for our family right now. I also love having a clean house, and like Rachel, I only have a couple of dreaded mommy chores. They are ironing and cleaning the litter box, by the way.
A couple of months ago I finally broke down and purchased a Motivated Moms Planner. My old system just wasn”t working for us anymore. I love that it tells you what to do each day of the week, as well as things that should be done every day. Most of the time, I”m doing well to get the “every day” chores done-a load of laundry, cleaning the kitchen, having the kids pick up the

However, my problem with housework lately is that I can”t seem to find a consistent time to dedicate to cleaning! The most optimal time in my day is the hour after the bus picks up Big Sister, however, who wants to do housework at 7:15 in the morning? Ick, not me!
Lately I have been saving all of the “big” stuff for Sundays. Because of my husband”s work schedule, this is his Friday, so it makes sense to have everything put back in its place before we”re all home the rest of the week. (Hubby works a weird schedule and is home most weekday mornings) But with fall weather finally peeking around the corner, I”d rather spend that time outside with the kids. (Or at church-we”re working on it!)
I know myself enough to know that this is a rut and that I”ll figure it out in a couple of weeks. I need to just bite the bullet and tackle chores first thing in the morning. Unfortunately housework is one of those tasks that never ends!
What about you? Do you ever get in a housework rut? Do you follow a specific schedule, or just wing it?
