No Menu This Monday!

Posted by Hallee on Jun 4, 2012 in Housekeeping, Life, menus & menu planning

I’m not putting a menu up this week. Kaylee is in Florida visiting her dad and Gregg is jumping out of airplanes with the Kentucky National Guard and won’t be home until Friday. Consequently, the boys and I are “baching” it this week.

My Kitchen Help

Posted by Hallee on Feb 21, 2012 in Hallee's Galley, Housekeeping, Life

But then there’s this part of me that considers that on a normal day, I load, wash, and unload dishes into my dishwasher twice a day. I unload in the morning when I get up, and after lunch, it’s full and needs to be reloaded. I unload it during dinner prep, and re-load it after dinner.

I have an issue with laundry.

Actually, I hate laundry.

I Don’t Do Chaos Well

Posted by Hallee on Apr 13, 2011 in Housekeeping, Life

When things around me are out of order, I feel out of order and lacking in control. Everything starts to slip. I can’t relax, I don’t feel like I’m capable of accomplishing even minor tasks, and I have way less patience than normal.

I love it how they’re young enough to WANT to help.

The Night the Lights Went Out

Posted by Hallee on Jun 18, 2010 in Housekeeping

When a light bulb burns out and you have to replace it, it is the perfect time to do some quick deep cleaning in an area of the house that is easily missed.

My Favorite Cleaning Day

Posted by Hallee on May 21, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Housekeeping

Thursdays are my favorite cleaning day by far. Mondays are a scramble to get our main living areas back in order after a weekend of no chores. Tuesdays are bathrooms and the boys’ room – I don’t think I need to say more. But Thursdays – Thursdays I clean my kitchen.
