Chore Experiment

I want to hire a cleaning lady, but I decided to try my kids one more time. I divided the chores a room a day with dishes, laundry, setting/cleaning the table everyday. Here is what I have done-


                 This is the day
                                  we shine the stainless steel appliances
                                                    clean the counter tops and cabinets
                                                          clean the stove and microwave and sweep and mop the floor!


                 Clean the top of the toilet -------- Clean the sides------Clean the seat------Scrub the bowl
                 Clean that sink and counter top and shine those mirrors
                 Kaboom that bathtub baby! After that- sweep and mop those floors and make them shine


                      Your toys should already be off the floor, right? So get to vacuuming and mopping
                       Dust the furniture and those nasty blinds before cleaning the entry way!

Thursday - BEDROOM DAY

                  Clean the toys, clothes, and books off of the floor. Vacuum the dirt and then vacuum more!
                  Dust the blinds and the tops of your furniture. Take off the sheets. NOW you are done!


             Mainly vacuum and pick up. Touch up the bathroom and kitchen.

The weekends are for touch ups and for extra chores like cleaning the cars or doing yard work.

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…
