Wasn't there a challenge?

Ah yes… on TUESDAY it seems I challenged myself to finish putting the girls laundry away.
Well, aside from getting school work done and moving the blogs I haven’t done much of anything.
That’s okay though. The laundry is all washed, it’s just that PILE of clothes for the girls that need to be sorted.  I’m considering taking on the task this evening.  Hubby is still out of town for work and since I don’t watch “our shows” without him, I can put a movie in for the kids and hang out upstairs to sort, fold and put away.
Once it’s done I know I’ll feel better.
Then again, I have no plans for this weekend. Netflix on the laptop while folding laundry on my bed sounds like a plan too.

Tuesday: Tackling the Laundry…my 15 minute challenge for today.

**Follow my progress on twitter: #tbtc15  , and share yours!**

It’s shocking just how well our new “one persons laundry per day” rule is working out!  I was feeling ill over the weekend and had to do our towel day on Monday, along with my laundry, but even being about a half day behind we’re still doing great!  Having Bubbagirl’s day be on Wednesday gives me a good buffer for catching up mid week.  Her loads are never full loads (her clothes are tiny), so it’s easy to toss in Doodlebug’s and get caught up quickly.

Our piles of dirty laundry are minimal.

It’s the clean clothes that are now piling up.

I STILL haven’t sorted through the big girls items to take out the too-small-or-too-dirty stuff. 

oh pick a color LOL

This is a lovely picture, taken by my Taderbug, from weeks ago!  It’s worse now.  So today, I want to try and tackle it.  It’s overwhelming.  Pair it with my discomfort from the pregnancy and I just don’t want to do it.

I hate how it looks though.

I hate listening to the girls whine about not being able to find clothes when OBVIOUSLY they have clothes to wear!

So today, WE (the girls too) are going to do at least two 15 minute challenges focused entirely on this pile of clean laundry!  To be accountable, I’m going to take pictures and show them in my twitter feed!  Follow along with the #tbtc15 (Too Busy To Clean 15) hashtag and share with us what YOU tackled today!

15 Minute Challenge, a checklist and new twitter tags

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to a new day for our 15 minute challenge!  I’m going to be working to make a simple link to show you all the posts related to our challenge (some go back to August 2007!)

I have two new things for you this morning:

First, is this groovy, paper saving, two to a page checklist you can use to mark off your rooms/areas for your challenge.  The colors equal one hour.  I left 10 rows (2 1/2 hours worth).  You can just X off the room when you’re done, or write what you accomplished in the cell.  Whatever makes YOU feel the most productive!

OR, if you’re not ready to do 15 in each room, just use each row to mark an area. Maybe your desk, or your craft table.  The junk drawer is another good one!

15 min challenge checklist

Second, we have a hashtag for twitter!  Join us there and share with us what you’ve accomplished!  Just add #tbtc15 to your tweet! I’ll find you!

Time to go have coffee with my Mr. B…. he’ll be going out of town for a few days…. and I’ll miss him.
