Ha, that's true of our house too. The whole house is clean except my
room. Gonna clean it today.

Yesterday, however, I was feeling better and got the personal hygiene done, cleaned out my closet mostly but still have some to do, cooked some homemade soup but it took me 2 days to cook it (heavy sigh), and went to the grocery store with my daughter and made spaghetti so that she would have something to eat. The only problem is that at 13 if I don't make her plate, she won't fix it herself...she will eat sandwiches or noodles or something... It was a good day to say the least...I have those occasionally and I'm always surprised by them but thankful!!!
My dd has chores so that helps to keep the house clean. I also made her clean out her room and bag things up so that goodwill can pick everything up on Friday.
Sounds like a great site but if there are lots of emails that would be too much of a challenge right now...
Hope everyone is feeling better than I was today... Hoping for a better tomorrow!
I've slept the day away too. It sounds like you're making good progress though! Baby steps, right?
My kids have chores too. I have three, and they each do a load of laundry a week, and one is paired with my husband or me each night for cleaning up the kitchen after dinner.
Also, I give them their allowance for the month in one dollar bills, but they don't get to spend any of it until the end of the month because if they leave a mess and don't clean it up, they have to put a dollar in the house fund. My son who's the youngest is usually best about hanging on to his money, go figure!
OK, off to brush my teeth, wash my face and walk the dog.
How are you guys at eating breakfast?
