I'm a horrible house wife. With all the griping I've done about how inconsiderate DH is and how he never thinks of me, I've realized that I'm not that great myself. I NEED a plan if I'm going to improve. So after getting up this morning and seeing what works this is my rough daily plan. I'll try to stick to it today and maybe change it around a little after I try it for a few days. Oh and I'm always going to give myself a little transition time in between activities and chores incase something takes a little longer than expected, if I need to deal with the kids, or if I just need a few minutes to myself. Also, I'm not going to plan anything between the hours of 1:00 and 3:30 because I have always considered that "my time" while Chloe naps and my soap operas are on. While I'm willing to try harder to maintain my home, I'm not willing to give up "my time".

6:30 - 7:30 Wake Up, Coffee, Get Haley dressed, pack book bag, browse boards, Stacy drops off Chloe.

7:30 Transition time... get Zach breakfast if awake, settle Chloe in, etc.

8:00 - 8:30 work on laundry... fold and put away any clothes in basket or dryer, start new load (advance as needed)

8:45 decide what I'll be doing about dinner (do I need to start the crockpot? Do I need to start thawing for tonight or tomorrow?)

9:00 clean up from coffee and breakfast... actually do dishes instead of pile in sink.

9:30 - 10:00 my computer time

10:00 - 11:00 work on personal project. Today I'm going to clean my desk (yes it will take that long), tomorrow I will work on pricing consignment sale items.

11:30 - 12:30 Start, serve, and clean up from lunch.

12:30 - 1:00 general straightening of living and play areas.

3:30 Settle Haley in from school, get her started with homework

4:30 begin preparing dinner

ALWAYS CLEAN UP IMEDIATELY AFTER DINNER SO I CAN SPEND THE EVENING WITH MY FAMILY!!!!

I'm off to clean up the kitchen mess!

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

Well today got screwed up because Chloe ended up not coming over so Zach and I ran errands which made the house never get messy.
So I stuck to the plan until 10:00 when I decided to treat the kitty for fleas and give her a much needed combing instead of clean off my desk. I did go through a stack of old mail off the desk and throw most of it away.
