I have been thinking about establishing a weekly routine. A long time ago, women would do certain chores on certain days. I'm thinking about establishing that in my house. For example, I've called it Blue Monday for a while because that's when I do my laundry- about 15 loads of it.
Laundry will be going a little (lot!) faster for me soon because my wonderfully amazing husband just bought me a washboard.
no, I'm not nuts, but I get that question a lot.
I asked for a washboard to assist me in my washing, not to exclusively DO my washing. I have a machine for that, but this I wanted more for scrubbing out stains (I hear it's amazing) and for doing diapers. I'm excited to try it out.
But anyway, back to the routine- Since I feel the need for established routines in my life with 6 children (I'm just going to go ahead and count the pre-born baby now. It's easier than adding the addendum in there.) whom I home school, breastfeed, having 3 in diapers, etc. I need to get routines done.
SO this is what I'm thinking:
Monday- laundry. Wash, dry, fold and put away.
Tuesday- Kitchen and bathrooms
Wednesday- Dining room and living room (Another load of diapers)
Thursday- kids rooms and play room
Friday- School room and craft room (Another load of diapers)
Saturday- Family day- off.
Sunday- Family day- off.
What do you think? What do your days look like? Do you have a routine for your home?
