  4. Home Environment
    My house drives me nuts on the weekends and with the kids out of school, I figured that they could help me with the smaller things (picking up their toys, throwing away papers, clearing the kitchen table, putting their clothes in their hampers, etc.). With even one of them helping me, I got the...

    OK sorry if this turns out to be really long! Until recently I have done the bulk of the household duties. My daughter pitched in as she saw a need and we stumbled along. My childhood was uber structured (Mom kept the house museum clean) so I have avoided too much structure in our daily...

    Finding Joy in Meaningless Tasks Spending an afternoon working on the car, gardening, or even cleaning the house can be fun when we have an interest in the project. Yet, we can also find joy in the chores and tasks we don't especially like. All we need is a change of attitude, a different...

    Ok, I have a question. How much would you give an almost 6 year old? It's just me and her and she loves to collect things. She's working on her Littlest Pets collection and Bella Sarah cards. She is already good at saving (she saved up $50 to get a butterfly house that she really wanted on her...

    I'm just curious. My neighbors and I were discussing this and found that he and I were pretty unique in how we split up the household chores. Most of our neighbors split the chores along the traditional "gender" roles. The men do the yardwork, take out the garbage, etc. The women do the...

    I HATE making my bed. It always looks nice when done, and it doesn't take much time, but I HATE making the bed! I also dislike dusting. Don't mind sweeping, but for some odd reason, I don't like to dust. Now keep in mind that I do these two chores, but I drag my feet in doing them. What...
