do you try to keep up with the daily cleaning every day? Do you get your kids to help out with anything?

I found it challenging this week, especially since its so out of routine to be gone 8 hours a day, plus we had activities every night.
I do get them to help out when we do cleaning sprees..

I made a promise to myself to NOT let the house go to crap this week. I succeeded!!! but if i have to do it for months at a time there's no WAY I would have been able to do it. I was up till 930 most nights just getting everything that needed to get done done!

I have learned to let it go for a short time to get my schoolwork done...it drives me nutso though. And the rest of the family...really wish they would do more without me telling them to do so all the time..lol Blood pressure has been rising lately. I have some time in the morning that I try to get the usuals done; dishes..atleast one load of laundry..pick up around the mainfloor.

That is the life of a working mom every night. It is the only way to survive and keep up with it all.
