getting it together

I have posted several times about getting a handle on this hurricane called the Wilson household. Six people living under one roof, four being kids, is hard work. For so long I have been frustrated and have let so many things go. Tired of saying the same things over and over again. "Pick up your toys, clothes, dishes...trash!" Most of that falling on deaf ears until I am screaming at the top of my lungs. Then me defeated and just doing it myself. They broke me. Big Time!

Well, I am here to say, "No more!" This mama has turned a new leaf and it ain't going to be pretty...at first. I am picking myself up, dusting off, and laying down the law. Yes, you are probably thinking that it is long over due. Heck, I know it is. But as the saying goes...better late than never. I can be honest with all of you when I say that I had given up for so long. I had no idea what to do or how to get it together. Now I know:)

Our house got a thorough cleaning the weekend before last because I just couldn't take it any more. My husband deserves a clean house to come home to after a long day at work. I deserve not to work myself to death to have every thing I accomplished be destroyed after only an hour or two. My kids deserve to learn some responsibilities and appreciation for what they have.

So everyone has their own chores to do and items are picked up before bedtime. No longer am I the only one doing laundry or sweeping the floor. You make a mess...you clean it up. A good friend of mine had a great idea. She does it with her kids. I think my kids are the messiest eaters on this planet. It never fails that there is some spill on the floor after a meal. Multiple that by the three kids sitting there...yea...frustration level up.

Well, she said to give each of them an old toothbrush and spray the floor and tell 'em to get to work cleaning. Great idea. So that has been something we have been doing. Grape juice was spilled earlier and the twins were in trouble....I'm not going into details...but that was part of their punishment. Clean the floor *wherever there were spots* with toothbrushes. (I'm not that cruel to make them do the entire floor)So we are gradually getting some kind of order to this chaos over here.

I am hope full and encouraged...now I just need some accountability to keep it up.

If any of you lacks wisdom, she should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to her. James 1:5. Wow, what a great promise!

Loy said...

wow, that is posted in our sanctuary all this week for VBS. coincidence...i don't think so.

garrysusanwilson said...

Accountability check - how's it going? And how was VBS this morning?

Loy said...

it was fun and exhausting. we still had 30 kindergarteners but wasn't as chaotic as yesterday.

i, excuse me..we,have been doing BETTER about keeping the house in check. still needs improvement but we are on our way. i have to remind myself to focus on the positive things that are happening and not on what isn't.

garrysusanwilson said...

The house has been looking good here lately. Proud of you guys!

It sounds like you are definitely getting a handle on life in your home -- keep up the great work! I only have two kids, and I can't imagine how much work it must be to have four.

Oh Love I am hearing you and know exactly where you are at. I too have a child that refuses to pick up after himself. To make matters worse he is an only child. He is now 20yrs old and is currently in the police academy. The thing that gets me is that he was in the army cadets, he is about to enter the police force which are all highly disciplined areas which he can manage, but ask him to get the half chewed pizza out of his bedroom it can't be done, go figure. The state of his room and everywhere he goes is vile. His car is filthy, he has debris everywhere. I don't dare put clean washing into his room because he just chucks it back into the laundry once it falls on the floor. I to this day have never been able to achieve in getting him to clean up after himself. Although there was one time when he was 12yrs where I blew a gasket and started billing him for cleaning services. Also there was another time where I blew another gasket and really totally trashed his room tossing dvd's everywhere, ripping up the sheets on his bed the whole bit. When he got home from school I told him to clean it up. When he objected I pointed out that now he knew how I felt everytime I had entered his bedrom. Lets just say he was not a happy camper.

For millions of Argentines it may make little difference: the louis vuitton outlet President Cristina Fernandez likes to carry would cost a month's wages for a typical factory worker. But Louis Vuitton Totes M40249 is leaving hundreds out of work, and critics say it's a symptom of broader problems that are stalling the louis vuitton uk economy.
