if youdon't know - everytime you see this thread you set a timer for 5 minutes and work on your home and then you come back to tell us what you did (or cross something off your list, if you'ld rather start with a list). every time it pops back up... so do you ;)

Charla, it' doesn't look like you have low energy from your list of completed chores. All I've done is prep a lot of veggies...

speaking of which, I have veggie stock brewing.

I vacuumed about half the house (areas that needed vacuuming), unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher, and hand-washed some dishes. I also put my youngest down for a nap and sent the others out to play. Ahhh...peaceful house.
