{August 14, 2016}   Cleaning Day

I haven’t felt good most the day, I woke up sick to my stomach with pain in my right side but at the same time really hungry and craving different odd foods. I ate a little off and on and had dinner it is still hurting and it is almost midnight. I am thinking it is my gallbladder but who knows really. I am going to get on making doctors appointments and things this week.

Despite not feeling good and hurting I have been in cleaning mode since I got up until I hour or two ago. I made everyone one at a time empty their dresser and closet of all their clothes and bring them to the couch. I then went through and took out anything way to big, to small or that was a rag and gave them what was left back. I made them count their dresser draws and told them how to divide them all up and put them away. While I was doing all that I had the two older ones running the washer, drier and the dishwasher. I am down to having my room and the clothes from the washer to go through. I then have to go around and gather anything they missed washing and get it started so that they can wash dog blankets tomorrow and I can get any other blankets out there washed.

Tomorrow I am going through both bedrooms and getting rid of everything they don’t play with, have outgrown, that’s broken, or just needs to go because they have to much. While I do that they are going to vacuum and mop. I have asked long enough for them to do their stuff and get it all out of the way and from all over my house so that I could clean the rest of my house. They haven’t and now they can clean while I clean out and I now have the say in what stays or goes. Thinking about that reminds me I need to get the bins to my daughters cube thing in the living room and clean them since the new ones i bought don’t fit in it. I am going to put a few things in them she can keep in the living room to play with and the rest has to be kept in the bedroom.

I start 4 of my 5 classes Monday the other one next month. They were all supposed to start Monday and some how I got put in the wrong class. I tried to change it and the one I want is full. I want everything gone through and put in it’s place so that we can keep up with it better now that we are all back in school.

With everyone gone most the day it shouldn’t get messed up as bad or as fast. I have a chore chart I made awhile back I am going to revise and we are going to start following it. In stead of making everyone in charge of washing their own clothes and having them mound up I am going to start having everyone put their clothes in one basket after they shower and the next day when we get home then someone will be responsible making sure that load gets done for the day. Everyone will still be responsible for their own bed stuff. I will wash mine and the little kids bed stuff, towels and things like that during the day when I am here and they are at school. I think I have it all figured out to make things run as simple and as smooth as possible for us all.
