Snap! Crack!!

Snap!  Crack!!  Isn't that the sound that a whip makes?  I'm hoping it is... I'm hoping to get back into the swing of decluttering.  I have all of a sudden lost all motivation.  Why on earth did that happen?  Is it because school started & I got crazy busy with that?  Is it because of the 'Autumnal Equinox'?

I feel like my house has gone to 'Hell in a handbasket'!  Hence the sticker on my fridge that says "Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?"  I feel like I just need a day or two or three of not doing anything but getting this place back under control. 

I'm starting to get 'twitchy & bitchy'.  Yet I don't feel that I can ask the kids to do more now than they normally do.  School is their 'job' and they still have to 'finish' their job.  Whoa-whoa-whoa.... waaaiiittt a minute..... Oh duh, I work TOO!!!  I have a JOB.   Hmmmm!  Wouldn't that mean, that since we are ALL 'working' now, that if we shared the burden of the chores, that they would go a lot quicker. 

I guess I just had to see it in writing to 'get it'.  King Turd has been saying that the kids need to help out more & I've been reluctant to ask them to.  Not that they've really ever down right refused to help - they haven't.  I do have to say they're good about that.  Now that I see I won't kill them & that I no longer need to kill myself, Ima ask tell them they gotta help out more.

How do you crack the whip in your house?

Bye!  Love you!  Have a good day, Dear!

  1. There's a time for whip cracking and there's a time for cutting them slack. For example, today was Belle's day to pick up after dinner. After school she immediately went to work. After work she immediately ate (it was after 7 by now) and still had an hour of homework. I let her off the hook but made Michael pick it up instead. He wasn't to happy but that's life. So that they don't get slack all the time I tend to make up a loooooong list of things for them to do when I know they have a light day. For seem reason written lists seem to get done better than a verbal telling.
