Good Morning Liz!

You asked about my guys helping clean house. Yes they have to clean their rooms, and then (if they are around) I get them to move tables and chairs and stuff like that for me so I can sweep and mop and get under everything. They stay so busy and work with dh mowing lawns (and our 7 1/2 acres too) so I don't push them doing much more then that. During the week they help fold clothes and empty dishwashers and all that fun stuff. I'm trying to raise some good hubbys for some sweet young ladies. (notice I said I'm trying lol)

It is a beautiful day here. 55 this morning and only getting up to 80 or so they say. It actually feels like Fall and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I sure could get use to this!

I'm gonna grab my 2nd cup of coffee and will check back later!

Cathy I make my kids do similar things. They are 6and 9. they pick up their rooms and are responsable for keeping their rooms picked up. I do the wash but as I tell them I can't wash what I don't have. the do the dish washer and put away the groceries...I am a mean mom :)

Hi :wave: all.

I'm back..just got everyone out the door! Whew!:dizzy:

I had a good weekend....I worked.....hubby and the girls did the recycling, the yard work, cut the grass and fall put aways......tidied up the house and made meals.

I am a bit worried about my 5 year old who doesn't seem to be hearing as well as she should. She has had a cold for about 3 weeks and maybe she is just congested but it is a bit of a worry.
I will make an appointment with the doctor this week.

I still haven't purchased a piano so I am going to go do that today. Hubby still isn't completely convinced that he wants one but I think it is a good thing. I have already saved enough this fall to pay for half of it. So a few more shifts to go!

I hear you guys about the housework thing. My girls have to keep their rooms picked up, put their laundry away and the older one does the kitchen each day after supper and the little one does some of the easy straightening in the front entrance etc. They are both really good their mom! Actually Daddy a better housekeeper and cook!

Well I am off to school for a field trip so I better have a shower and have some coffee.....I can barely keep my eyes open.......would love a nap.....but when will that happen?

Have a great day everyone!

Great to see you L......are you still scrapping?

Bye for now!

DH has gone fishing for the day with I don't have the car today....but I am keeping busy....So far I have vacuumed the rugs in the bedrooms....brought out some halloween's just a bit over a month until halloween.....cleaned up the kitchen....made the I have been on the computer some.

I think I am going to wash some windows later....on the inside.....also take the dog for a walk.

I had an episode this morning....where all of a sudden....I got really lasted less than a minute.....but it felt wierd. I have meniere's disease.....but haven't been bothered with it in 6 years....because of cutting back on I hope it isn't coming back.

Cathy.....I have 3 sons....all grown now....they all had chores at vacuuming, dusting, dishes.....then when they were about 16....they would complain about my getting their jeans mixed I taught them how to do their own laundry. should be resting when you are
