On Being a Homemaker

Unfortunately, he is not tall enough to wash windows

Let's be honest - being the home maker is hard sometimes! Wrangling a child, meal planning, grocery shopping, cleaning, cooking, baking...

Sorry, lost my train of thought as I ran to the kitchen to put the bread in the oven.

Anyway, my point is, there are about a million things a day that go through my head. It's not that any one is so difficult to accomplish, but add everything together and you can get quite a jumble. That's why I love lists so much. And my Google Calendar.

For your cleaning/scheduling enjoyment, I've linked up my home making calendar to the blog. It's on the right side bar. The beauty of my cleaning schedule, if I do say so myself, is that it's ok if you miss a day. The "daily schedule" makes your whole house company (or at least play date) ready, besides perhaps the bathrooms. (You could add a "wipe down the sink and swiffer" to that list to make the entire house 100% every day if that's important for you.) If you miss a day on this schedule, it's no big deal. You can pick it up the next day, week, month, quarter, or year.

Here is the excel version that I worked off to start it out... I didn't add in errands like grocery shopping or activities like cooking, as I don't really need that much scheduling in my life. You could customize something like this to fit your own needs very easily.

Happy home making!

Thanks for posting this! One of my 2011 goals is to try to be a better homemaker and be WAY more organized when it comes to home stuff. This will really help!
