Monday is Our Catch Up Day!
Posted: August 1st, 2016
We are in the middle of Summer Vacation and I don't know about you but I'm completely loving it! No homework to do, no after school activities and no alarm clocks buzzing in the morning! Life is just perfect!
Well....Let me correct myself....Almost Perfect!
I have found that my daily mom routine, (getting the kids ready for school mixed with my daily dose of housework/errands) has been completely out of whack! Warm weather and sunny days have literally pushed my mom routine aside. Leaving overflowing laundry, bathrooms untidy and clutter everywhere! Ugh! I don't like seeing my house like this. I feel very unbalanced and that's not good for someone like me!
Since I don't want to miss out on the sun because let's face it, the weather this summer has not been very consistent, I chose Monday to be our Major Catch Up on Cleaning Day! Monday seems to be the only day of the week we are home the majority of the day. Probably because we are all recuperating from the weekend at camp!
After breakfast, my kids know the drill. We will not play outside or go to the playground, unless the house is back to normal. That means carpets are vacuumed, floors are mopped, rooms are clean, beds are made, laundry is done, etc!
I try to do laundry during the week in the evening to keep up with the overflow, because the catch up laundry day can get brutal if I don't do a little bit each night.
So far, this Monday Catch Up Day has really been successful. I am able to get the house back to normal and then have fun the rest of the week without feeling unbalanced when we come home!
Do you have a Catch Up Day in the Summer??
