Becoming a calendar girl

Monday, June 11, 2012

Hi all my SP friends, first of all let me tell you this blog might be lengthy so I apologize for that now but I need to start at the beginning okay... okay once upon a time which is how all my stories start I was noticing that my DH and myself were having a awful lot of "tiffs"about this and that, nothing major but constant little problems, I said to myself ( because that's what I call myself) self something isn't right here and we need to fix it. I tried to get my Dh to open up to me and talk to me but he wouldn't. I had a pretty good idea what the problem was but I needed him to admit it to me
Finally it all came to a head in a peaceful talk. Since my stroke and seizures, I think I have used the way that I feel as a crutch to become lazy. Not all the time because sometimes, I really don't feel very good. therefore my house has become filthy, it really has. I was never a Donna Reed housewife but I was never a pig like I am now. My DH was brought up with a Donna Reed Mom but he hasn't complained because he says that I figured your sick; but was he really thinking that. Now in fairness to me, he is not keeping up with his chores either.

Anyways when I have a problem, I like to have a solution and I spent last Thursday with my Daughter and she provided me with one. Both of my daughters have given me this solution but doing it this way will really work.

My magnetic calendar that I will put on my refrigerator all my daily chores that need to be done. I have to admit my youngest daughter already does this and it works for her but it is going to work for me too

So now I am the new calendar girl who will be up to date with her life will keep you posted how I am doing. today was laundry day and I am almost done with my laundry

You will be hearing back from me hopefully positive reports

Hugs

Danlin

    Hello! Great BLOG! Love to see you talked with dad and I hope he's on that calendar too. Everyone in the house can do a little something each day! Take it one day at a time and soon you won't even think twice about it! Best of luck! love ya!

    My mom, the calendar girl, lol. At first I was thinking of a pinup ;)

I'm happy to hear that you are taking a positive step towards a schedule and accountability. It is important to have daily goals, they are what keep you moving forward. A little bit at a time and then once you are into a good routine, you can add some surprises to your schedule just to keep boredom away (what's this I see? Washing windows? HA!).

Can't wait to read your progress reports. I love you and good luck.

XOXO

    Sounds like a great idea.

I know I have a problem keeping up on things too. If I do start cleaning, I start thinking about whether I need it or not and then just move to another area; that is not really cleaning, just moving.

I am sure that the calendar idea will work great for you.
