So, you may be wondering how the FlyLady stuff is going, and the housework more generally? No? Well, I’m gonna tell you anyway. It’s okay, but not great. Last week, with two nights away, I really didn’t manage any of the missions, though I did manage a load of laundry every day and mostly kept the kitchen clean, thanks to a lot of help from Mr. Geeky and the kids. Today, I’m exhausted, and I still have a little bit of work to do for tomorrow, and I haven’t done my load of laundry. My desk needs some work.
But, it’s not bad overall. Mr. Geeky and I are swapping off doing the grocery shopping, which is a huge relief to know that every other week, I’m not obligated to go to the grocery store. The house stays fairly neat, I think, because we’ve all gotten used to it being that way.
But there are some organizational issues. Breakfast, for instance. New Kid had actually written about ideas for breakfast, and I had suggested an egg with toast or bagel, which was my plan for breakfast, but I have not managed to make breakfast at all in two weeks. I find myself with only a few minutes for breakfast. I’ve managed a bagel and cream cheese and that’s still not cutting it for me. I really need protein. I don’t even have time for frying an egg. It’s not like I’m rushing around in the morning, but it is true that breakfast ends up having the lowest priority.
We’re adjusting to just generally being busier. There are after-school and evening activities, lots of homework (for all of us) on top of daily chores and duties. So far, it doesn’t feel crazy, and if it ever were going to feel crazy, last week was the time that would happen and it didn’t. Ask me again when I’m filling out report cards.
