Well, I have been taking LOTS of notes as I have been looking at refrigerator doors and listening to mothers speak of all the help they get around the house. I have been working on this for a while now, and we are getting closer and closer to actually getting the house clean and keeping it there. Plus, the biggest challenge, is for chores to actually happen within "chore time" so that school and other daily responsibilities can occur.
For me, the planning and organizing of the whole thing is the most fun. We have not had a printer in many years now. So, I have done everything by hand. Now that the Mantooth's have a printer (YEA!!!!!), I have made these wonderful charts that are sure to magically make our home run in ship shape fashion. JJ :) Now, I need LOTS of prayer to make this happen. I don't have anyone in my family yet that is independent enough to actually READ these wonderful charts and do their job. I still have to work on training them to read the chart, training them how to do the job properly, and training them to complete the job without hassle and within the time limits. Whew!!! That seems like a lot. I have seen it working in many families though, and I know we can get this down too. I hate being confronted with my own laziness and poor stewardship of my time. It would be so much easier if it was just the kids being trained in this process.
