Motivated Moms

My reasons to stay motivated...

Well, did you notice that Monday came around again?? It seems to take me all day to clean the weekend out of my house on Mondays. Sometimes it is hard to stay motivated all day, but I must stay busy on Mondays to get my house back to normal. Today was no exception. My day was full of dish washing, laundry/folding/putting away, straightening rooms (the kids' was the worst!), sweeping/mopping, lots of cooking, homeschooling, nursing, and lots of other mothering.
A few weeks ago, I found a tool that has helped me stay motivated with my tasks. I will post the linky at the bottom of this post in case you are interested. For a small fee, you can download a whole year of daily/weekly tasks to complete, complete with a checklist, AND a Bible reading plan. Here's what my list looks like this week: (minus the daily things)

This is just a nice way of dispersing the spring cleaning in with the every day chores. Some days I don't get it all done, but it eventually comes around again and I don't stress it. Something you may want to check out....
Well, tomorrow I'm going to attempt to shop with my two youngest and also I'm supposed to get a new couch and loveseat tomorrow!!! Maybe I'll have some pix to post soon!!

  1. I love that idea because I do the same thing. It sure makes life much easier, especially when your kids are little, to get pieces of spring cleaning accomplished with daily chores.


I love and welcome your comments. Please be nice.
