I've been pretty good about sticking to my self imposed schedule with chores. The kids have had their computer time today as well as some outside time. J's had some tv time, though G's has been limited because of punishment. Right now, we're on a lunch break but we'll start cleaning again - well, the kids will start, I'll start again.
I've cleaned the kitchen..thankfully it's been mostly clean for a few days now. Yesterday when B came over, all I had to do was some touch up and a little bit of washing. We had tacos for dinner. I like not having to spend 30 minutes prior to dinner cleaning. It felt good to have a guest over and not worry about how messy the kitchen is when they're eating dinner here. I finished cleaning up dinner dishes and stuff. I swept the floor, though I haven't mopped it. I did that two days ago, I don't really want to do it again. I was hoping once a week would be fine, but it doesn't look like it's going to be.
The rest of the house, except the living room, is in shambles. Still, I wasn't real antsy about company, like I can be sometimes. I picked up the living room a little. There's more to be done today, but it's mostly pick up. The kids will help with that. Then we'll do the music room, which now that I actually look at it, doesn't look like it will take *too* long, thankfully. The kids will help with that too, since a lot of it looks like it's their clothing.
I'm proud of myself for snack too. I have some grapes and my cherry water. No soda. I've been reverting back to 2-3 sodas a day. I've got to stop doing that if I have any hope of loosing weight. I haven't been on a regular exercise schedule of late, and I need to do that too. Once the house gets to a better place, clean wise, I'll pick that up again. In the meantime, there's no reason that I can't take little steps - such as water throughout my day rather than soda. Grapes are a great snack too. I need more fruits/veggies in my diet. I've been trying to incorporate them more in dinners too. Gotta expand my tastes!
I've played Rifts today and I plan on playing WoW for a little bit before returning to work. All in all, it's been a good day so far.
