Catch Up Day
Laundry, dishes, toilets, beds, homework....
Yes, I know that running some dishes or laundry through on Saturday or Sunday would lessen the burden on Monday. Yes, I know that it is going to be a ton of work to get everyone caught back up. The loads will be huge considering the six active people in this house; several of whom still change their clothes at least twice daily. The dishes will be yucky and will take at least an hour to get all clean (oh, how I dream of a dishwasher or a teenager). But, surprisingly Monday morning I wake up ready to go. I grab a basket of laundry left from Friday and start folding, quickly creating neat stacks ready to take to the kids' drawers. The kids get going on their chores. My hubby works on putting some breakfast on the table. We'll work all day on chores and lessons; but the whole time we have the thoughts of all those fun things we did (or didn't do) over the weekend. It is extra work today but by eight o clock, we'll be able to look at a house that is ready for another week of living and know that all the extra work was worth it.
