    I started this when my kids were little as a way to get them to clean up after themselves,without the chore being overwhelming!Now that they are grown,with homes of their own,I still do this... when I am feeling a bit sluggish.Sometimes I forget to get back to the show I've been watching! emoticon

    That is surely a great way to avoid being a victim of all the junk food commercials!
And don't forget to fill that water bottle for the next scene emoticon
