Thank you very much. My main problem is that i can run the washer or dryer after 2000 and i get home from work at 1845. I live in germany and they have the "quiet time law", this is where you cannot have lots of noise in the apartment after a certain time until a certain time (2000-0620). this is what makes it complicated.

I will try the roster deal.

Thank you very very much.

Hooray Im not the only one!!!

Deciding to do certain chores on certain days certainly helps! I am now working 3 days per week and find that if I put one day aside to have a good proper clean up and get floors cleaned properly the house looks n feels much better. Although it too looks like a tornado hit a few days later... such is life i guess

hi shoshonna,

i hate housework..... when i had my last son i had to do myself a roster, i couldnt manage to get the dinner on the table much before 8.30 and the house was constantly messy....

i did a fortnightly roster... i would put what i was going to have for dinner.. eg: monday sausages, tuesday: mince wednesday: pasta and so on.... that way i didnt have to think of what to cook.... and if i didnt feel like what i wrote down then i would change it....

and i would put the basic cleaning things on there eg: monday. vacume. tuesday: washing, wednesday: mop floors thursday: washing. friday, wash bathroom. saturday:m washing and sunday i wouldnt do a thing.....

i would juggle it up from one week to the next....

it helped me get into a routine, and at the time i also had 2 teenage sons who could cook so i would roster them in for a cooking night every fortnight....

i hope this helps.....
