Happy First-Monday-of-2015!!! I’ve been contemplating what to do with this first week of the new year! Just as everyone else in the world I have new plans I want to make to improve my health, which we touched on in my post on January 1. I’ve never been very good at keeping the house clean. I’d love to be one of those stay at home wife/mom’s who spends everyday cleaning a little so the house stays clean. But I’m not your typical housewife with my illness. I do have a terrific husband though that helps me out. But I’d love to change that this year so I could actually do my own “job”. I did find a simple plan though that may help me.

I came across a blog through Pintrest called Simply Kierste. Her chart offers Daily Tasks, Weekly Tasks and Monthly Tasks. Somehow her weekly tasks end up on my monthly tasks and her monthly tasks end up on my 4 or 5 month tasks. That sounds so sad. Here I’ll show you what it looks like.

It looks fairly doable! Don’t you think? Do any of you have a list like this that you do every day? Tell me what you do! Please! I really want to do something. I generally wait till I’m having a good day and then try to kick it all out. Then I’m shot with fatigue from my Fibromyalgia. I’m hoping the health changes I plan to make will change some of that though. Right now I’ve been in a flare for the last few days. I think it’s weather related and there’s not a lot anyone can do about that. But shoot we aren’t even talking about that!


Thankfully my husband is the Chef of the family! I’m forever grateful for that! Cooking is the last thing on earth I ever want to do and he loves it. We make a great team!

What is the one job you hate to do? I don’t mind any other job. I do have to have him clean the bathtubs and the shower because it hurts my back too much. But other than that unless I’m hurting and need help, physically, I can do any of them. But I know there are certain jobs we all hate to do. So which one is yours? Come on! Spill it!

At any rate, the other day I mentioned the health changes I wanted to make. Today I mentioned the household changes I wanted to make. I have a few other changes up my sleeve. What about you? What changes are YOU making! Let me hear from you!
