Wednesday was a horribly busy day here, most of it spent out of the house at various doctor appointments. I dislike those days. I didn’t even attempt to do the laundry because I didn’t have a chunk of time at home to even make sure a load was completed.
For those of you who don’t know I am a big fan of the follow it though method of laundry. I won’t start a load unless I know I can complete all the stages: wash, dry, fold and put away. That way I never wind up with a mountain of clean clothes sitting somewhere. That to me is an invitation to quickly become a pile of dirty laundry.
So Thursday will be a great day to try and get caught up. We are expecting the rements of Tropical Storm Nicole to hit. It looks like a lot of rain and wind with some possible flash flooding in certain areas will be hitting here tomorrow morning and through the afternoon. So I will have time to catch up on the laundry and figure out my main level organizational plan and maybe, just maybe try to get a start on it.
The upstairs is looking good. I am enforcing an evening room clean up after dinner so the children’s rooms are staying neat. The master bedroom is no longer a dumping ground. I have assigned each child a day to wipe down the bathrooms so the never get to the point of gross. I am pleased that the upstairs is functioning wonderfully.
Now I need to transfer that concept to the main floor. My nemesis remains the buffet. As much as I promise myself that I won’t let it get out of hand, within two months it is back to overflowing with papers to be filed, junk mail, and other “stuff.” Not to mention it is now the homeschooling hub so a lot of activity goes on around there daily. It is a work in progress to figure out what will work for us.
Here is hoping I can get something figures out that will work for us. You all have a wonderful dry day!
