What A Crock

Captain Jammie Pants log, September 15th.  Way too damn early in the morning.

Yesterday I mostly kept up with the dishes and counters.  This morning I was left with a few things that didn't get hand washed after dinner, but for the most part the dishes are done.  I'm probably the only person on the planet that makes my meal plan to avoid crockpots since I detest washing them so much.  I'm searched high and low for those cool crock liner bags but haven't found them ANYWHERE!  I made a roast yesterday in the crockpot and it's still soaking in water because I like avoiding things.

I didn't get a speck of laundry done yesterday either, but I'm trying not to feel badly about it since I did jackhammer my stove clean and soaked my drip pans and other elements in ammonia overnight.  I also got a little work done on Boo's toy pit and collected at least 2 loads of laundry off Little Man and Sweetie Pie's floor.  I even read a little in my book!

I've been busting my butt to get even the basics checked off my list, but I'm noticing that it leaves me with NO time to catch up on my shows, hang out with the kids, etc.  I'm sure that sounds funny to ladies who do it all every day, but I miss my Teen Mom!!  Although I've always had the urge to clean Amber & Gary's apartment... yikes!

Today I will:
Do 2 loads of laundry since I didn't do any yesterday
Put away the folded clothes that have been in the living room for 2 days
Reassemble the stove
Clean off (or work on) the banister behind my couch which is a catch-all for crap I don't know what to do with

5 Thoughts From Others:

Do you get super saver shipping to Alaska? Here's 25 for only 10 bucks!

Or you can ship them here and I can send it with the box of crap I've had sitting in my counter to send to you for months. (holy run on sentence batman!) It might actually motivate me lol

When I first got organized with my chores (which works out better some days than others), I had NO me time for fun things. However, after a few weeks when I got used to the routine, I find that I have a lot more time for me than I did before. I didn't have to think about it anymore, I KNEW what I had to do for the day, and got it done in the morning while my daughter played by herself, or during naptime, which left my evenings FREE!

In short, you'll get back to your shows shortly. Have patience. :)

i'm so with you with hating to clean the crockpot afterwards. i was able to find the slowcooker liners and loved using them! they made clean up so easy. well guess what! i can no longer find them again. :( so i have been spraying vegaetable oil cooking spray on it before i use it and it seems to cut back what sticks to it. still a pain to wash tho.

what about folding laundry while you watch your shows? a little bit of play and work together.

Love the crockpot - hate to clean it too. My newest has the removable insert which helps but the other three - uhg, yuck.

I know what you mean about the time. I think that's why I often find myself crashing and burning - and back to doing nothing. I hate being a slave to my home. I've started setting a timer for X minutes and whatever doesn't get done during that time (set several times throughout the day...morning, nap, evening) has to wait for the next day. So far, so good.
