Household Chores

So I'm a domestic goddess, huh? Well, I do rule over my house.

There was a time when I completely let this inanimate thing have total control over me. Sometimes it has partial control. But most of the time I am on top of things.

It's simple, really. Just have to do the thing(s) you don't want to do. Just get up and do it. Lately, I've been making a little internal deal with myself: can't scrapbook, work on blog, or go to forums until I've completed x, y, z. It's been working. I still have loads of time for family, scrapbooking, Bible study. It's amazing, honestly.

So just try it. Do the thing you really don't want to do and then reward yourself. When you are done with the reward, do another thing you don't want to do. Before long, you will find that you have a lot more free time that is really FREE because there is no guilt of "not having things done."

This is such a great idea Cheryl. I have a routine where I will down here (at the computer) once I get Brooke (my oldest) off to school and then is when I really should be getting what I can done and then like you said reward myself for getting x,y and z done. I am going to give this a try, I think that it will work out very well. :)
