  1. Hello everyone! Well I have fallen far off the wagon. I now only have 3 children so that is good. However the third child is very scheduled and until a couple of days ago, this made me tired. :( My successes have been we have been doing blessing hour every week (sans one). My house doesn't look like a bomb it it at the moment. My failures... yeah lets not go there. Goal for today: Put up baby laundry grade papers lesson plan for next week baby food shop educate YDS Yeah if I do that I will consider it a good day. :blush: How far I have fallen! :(
  2. I live within the drug free zone of a high school.I can occasionally hear the loud speaker at the school. Last week I called around to see if I could get alerted if the high school ever goes on lock down. I want to know just because I often let my boys play alone in the back yard. I don't want to know why the school is on lock down, I just want to know when, and when it is lifted. That way I can put my boys inside if need be. Seems simple enough to me since I am home all the time. Well my township doesn't do this. The school said it was a police matter, the police said it is a school matter. The township didn't even know what to do with me. Has anyone successfully got a school to do this? I mean they have to alert the police when the school is on lock down, I would think it wouldn't be that much work to start a reverse 911 to let the rest of us that want to be alerted, to be alerted. My father lives on the other side of the country and he said this type of thing is routine where he lives. I just don't know how to make it routine in my area. Thank you for the help!
  3. 16 but we need to order again. My dad I am sure is over 100. He gets orders nearly everyday.
  4. My youngest is traumatized by winter every year. He will be in a coat till June every year because he is afraid of being cold. I just assume that he will live with grandma in Florida when he is older. LOL Anything else that he mixes up is to be funny though. Could your child have that in him?
  5. Sorry I have been absent the last couple of days. Thursday I was so busy that when I woke up on Friday my feet were still tired! Need to get new shoes I guess. Well yesterday wasn't much better but I did get schooling in for my boys. Tuesday is looking exhausting and we are even to Sunday yet! However after that it seems like I will get quiet for a while... I hope. My bathrooms are not looking bad right now. My house needs some organizing because of the boys, but that will be done this weekend. I have a question for any lurkers or whomever may see this. I recently saw this list of 11 steps to a clean car: 1. Friday is our day to clean out our cars. 2. Every time you fill up with gas. I like to fill up when I hit a half of tank of gas. I am always vigilant while I am pumping gas. I keep my keys in my hand and my car is locked. 3. After the gas is pumped; I take a minute to grab any trash and throw it away. 4. I take my time and use my purple rag and a rubba sweepa to clean my windshield and mirrors. I drive a truck and it is hard to reach the middle of my windshield. 5. I also keep a rubba scrubba to sweep off my floor mats. 6. Put a Post-It Note on your dashboard to remind you to throw away the trash and clean your car. 7. With your car clean; you can run though the car wash. I did that today when I filled up. You can also do a quick wash at home with your dust mitt and a water hose. 8. Keep a trash bag in your car. Then you don't have any excuse to not keep your trash corralled. 9. When you get home; completely empty out your car. Everyone grabs something to take into the house. 10. Take your time getting out of the car. I always attach my keys to my purse and gather up my things. 11. It is OK to make a second trip to the car. This doesn't seem practical to me because I live in one of the 2 heavenly states that it is illegal to pump my own gas (New Jersey, Oregon is the other one). So I really only get out of my car with purpose. This list also encourages purchasing 2 things. Which I try to avoid. So what would be on your list to keep your car clean?

  7. I can't be the only one that grew up out in the country and remembers my classmates bringing rifles to school because they were going out hunting after school. I mean, others remember that too right? I am 41 years old. I graduated in 1995 (4 years before Columbine). To me guns are not the problem. Though it is very clear from media reports that this kid should have been on a list of "don't give this kid a gun without a mental health evaluation" list. I think I agree with the PP about parenting changing. And in many ways that was good. But in a lot of ways it has been very bad as well. Another PP said that parents don't have a leg to stand on because of the rate of divorce and such. Nope, I am not buying that. My parents were married 3 times each (once to each other). I am currently married longer then any of their marriages (except for my father's current marriage). You can set a good example by saying "don't do as I did and here is why".

Each and every Wednesday is Anti-Procrastination Day for FlyLady. This is a day that we take care of things we’ve been putting off. You can use this day to take care of any procrastinating you’ve done. You can do things like: Make doctors appointments Finish that report for work Work on a project with your child Clean the fish tank You can do whatever you need to take care. This is the day to stop putting things off. Today's Mission (We only have missions Monday through Friday): Since tomorrow is errand day, I want you to get under your bathroom sink to see what you need on the list. Check mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner, soap, and toothpaste. Do you have any empty bottles, or items you do not love? Toss them out! Fly Kids Mission (We only have missions Monday through Friday): We are going to go into our rooms or the area in the house where we keep our crayons, markers, coloring books and craft supplies. Set a timer for 15 minutes and go through this items. Toss out the items that you no longer use, love, need or want. If you have things that you no longer want but are good enough to bless someone else with put those items in a separate bag and give to a grown up. Throw away the dried up markers, small broken crayons - anything that is no longer usable that is taking up space. If you are new to Flylady, please join at any time.

  9. I voted yes privately but honestly I don't stop their school from posting photos. To me that is different though.

Meal planning, lesson planning, activity planning, holiday planning, or anything else. Today's Mission (We only have missions Monday through Friday): Today we are going to make time for the office! I want you to pick a pile and set your timer for 15 minutes to go through it. Don't pick up more than you can get through in 15 minutes . I do not want you to overwhelm yourself. Rely on your timer for this mission. Fly Kids Mission (We only have missions Monday through Friday): We are going to go into our rooms and get all of the clothes that are on the floor and put away what is clean and put the dirty clothes in the hamper or basket. Here is the rule for today: Do Not Put Clean Clothes In The Dirty Clothes Basket! See when I was little I used to try this trick!! This makes more work for your parents! Put away the clean clothes and only put the dirty ones in the basket. Your room will automatically look cleaner and neater when there are no clothes laying around to clutter up the space.

  11. Can I just say, that in a market like what your describing, DON'T do FSBO. I am not a realtor and I don't even know any other then the lady who we used to buy this house 9 years ago, but I have watched my mom go through ALL sorts of problems because she tried to do FSBO. Like you she had a hard time pricing her house. It wasn't like anything on the market. However, once you list it it goes on Zillow and a lot of people use zillow to find a house or to check out a neighborhood they are looking to buy in. So if your house doesn't sell (like it didn't for my mom) and you have to go with an agent (my mom with a helper agent, then a real one) it doesn't look great for your house. Now my mom is 13 months into this and hopes to close at the end of April if not sooner (I am hoping for sooner as her April is packed enough! Buyer wants to move closing.). I should also mention that my mom has had 2 sales fall through at the 9th hour in the last year. All that to say that after seeing what my mom went through and seeing how you will probably be priced above what you are wanting to get, to me it would be WELL worth the price of a Realtor to do everything right the first time.

Weekly home blessing is spending 10 minutes doing each of these: Vacuuming Dusting quick mop polish mirrors and door handles purge magazines and catalogs change all sheets empty trash. Today's Mission (We only have missions Monday through Friday): This week we will be in zone 3, the Main Bathroom and another room. For today let's stay in the Bathroom only. The mission today is to wash the shower door or shower curtain. If your shower curtain is plastic and you can afford to replace it, put that on your list to pick up Thursday. If you can not afford just clean it the best you can with some cleaner and a rag. Fly Kids Mission (We only have missions Monday through Friday): Today I want you to open up the doors of your closet and check to see if you have any clothes that have fallen off of the hangers and have become jumbled up on the floor of the closet. Set a timer or ask Mom or Dad to set a timer for 5 minutes and see how much you can hang back up. If you can't reach the rod to hang these things back up, ask Mom or Dad to give you some hangers, you then hang the clothes on the hangers, then ask for help to hang them up. If you need to set the timer again, then do so for another 5 minutes. If you find some things that no longer fit or you do not use, put those in a bag and give them to a parent to bless someone else with. If you are new to Flylady, please join at any time.

  13. Sorry I had a baby that wouldn't go to sleep last night then did it again this afternoon. I will get the thread up tonight. I had a cup of coffee and I am thinking of another one. I was thinking that we could post things on Sunday that we need to do in the given zone that are not always thought of. So for me since this week is bathroom, I realized I need to wipe down the inside of my medicine cabinets. It is getting funky in there! So what about you?
  14. What about Princeton Battlefield, Nassau Hall (site of a continental congress) and that area? It isn't really worth a whole day but I could see doing Washington Crossing Park (the museum in NJ doesn't take long to get through) then going over there. Personally I just love walking through the university. It is beautiful! This might help you. http://www.revolutionarywarnewjersey.com/new_jersey_revolutionary_war_sites/towns/trenton_nj_revolutionary_war_sites.htm This is seriously in my back yard and I have never done it. Makes me look forward to summer when we can do it. :) I like the trail with the obelisks. :D
