So much I'd like to get done

There are quite a few things I'd like to get done today. First, I'd like to go through my kids' clothes, bring out the summer clothes, get rid of what doesn't fit, or what they don't wear, and stuff. I've been wanting to do it for a while but now it has too. The downstairs needs to be cleaned up terribly. It's such a mess. Plus, since it's supposed to be a beautiful day, I'd like to spend time with my kids outside. It'd be a waste to spend some of it outside. This is on my to-do list. I do hope I can get something done, but I'm not sure. My husband is still not feeling well, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to do their clothes today. I can hopefully do the downstairs at least and be outside with my kids. I'll try and do what I can. So, I'll leave you guys and start cleaning. It's a good time to do it, since my kids are busy watching a little tv and busy doing other things.

Sorting clothes is never an easy task, i always find myself having an excuse not to get rid of things.I hope your kids will help you do the sorting so they can hold on to some things they love. I never have to do list, i do what i can whenever time comes up.Wish you a lovely day.

I don't usually have a to do list either, but today there are just some things that need to get done. As much as it'd be nice to have the kids help, it might just be quicker if I do it by myself. If they were a little older, I'd probably have them help. Although I'll admit it is hard to get rid of some things. Some things we keep, but we try to get rid of as much as we can.

it's been cooler so I haven't felt like switching the clothes yet but I usually do as the winter sweaters take up so much space in dressers. I'm holding off for a bit though- Big job and cold weather-- ha!

Yeah I know. I didn't change it due to the weather. I still left some pants, long sleeves and sweaters just in case.

@MarymargII I heard something like that. I definitely hope not. I checked the weather for our area, and there's no sign of snow, but I'll be cautious.

Best way to tackle all of that is to give yourself a specific chunk of time for each task. Going through clothes can be tiring so maybe one hour will get you through a big chunk of it and you can pack away the clothes that need to be donated so your pile won't be as large for the next time! :)

I did manage to get some done. We've done a little bit every day, and it's helped. The clothes are pretty much all straighten out, which is nice. As for the cleaning, well we have to do a little bit everyday.

I did manage to play with my kids. As much as we do have do things around the house, my kids and spending time with them is always the most important.

@dodo19 I loved the time I spent with my kids, and they are adults now and appreciate that time shared as children.

Well I hope you get the things done you have listed. I need to get the motivation to clean out my room as I'm getting a new bed etc and painting my room soon. I only have a few weeks to do it before my new bed is delivered oh the struggles.

I know how you feel. I need the motivation as well, otherwise I just procrastinate. But, for whatever reason, today I'm motivated to clean up and sort the clothes. This really doesn't happen often, and my husband can testify to that.

That is one thing I need to do soon is to go through my clothing and sort out the winter clothes from the summer clothes. I don't think it is time to do it just yet though as I want to make sure the weather is going to stay nice first.

Yeah I understand. I've made sure to keep some pants and long sleeve shirts out, just in case we need them. I'd rather be safe that sorry.

Thankfully everyone is better now. It's easy to keep things clean but we try to tidy up as much as we can to make sure it doesn't get out of hand.

I waited to long to do the dishes and have my coffee this morning so now I am so tired it is hard to stay awake sitting here. I hope you got everything on your to-do list finished. I have a busy weekend but I am doing okay on getting things done so I can relax a bit now.

It's hard to do stuff when you're tired. I did manage to get most of it done. There are still some clothes I need to go through and put away, but for the moment it can wait. The summer stuff is out.

Are your kids old enough to help you? My mom always had us help her, and I'm sure you could use the help. Moms work hard!

My two girls are old enough to do somethings, as my eldest is 4 1/2 and my youngest girl is going to be 3 in a month. We do tend to have them help out a little, by asking them to pick up their books, or their toys, and such. But my son is 15 months, so he's still a little too young. My husband and I do encourage our girls to help a little, and will ask them sometimes.

There's always something to do. When the kids are settled and occupied that's the best rime to get things done. Have a great weekend.
