I am not seeing the productivity in my days that I want to. Our days are ever changing and the kids and I need some structure. This is not my nature, but I am trying. I feel like that lady on Flylady living in C.H.A.O.S. (can't have anyone over syndrome). Even if you hate the emails you get from Flylady there are some tried and true things I always fall back on.
When you are overwhelmed:
- Make Your Bed
- Get Dressed & Put Shoes On
- Go And Clean Your Kitchen
Another one of her tricks I like is to rotate which bathroom you bathe the babies in. While they are splashing around, clean that bathroom. Also, it is amazing how nice your bathroom will feel if every single day you wipe down the counter/toilet/and swish some cleaner in the bowl.
