Women are Queen Multi-Taskers.
And we have this whole network of women out there who are doing simple things better and faster. So we should collaborate a little more often - quit reinventing the wheel all the time - right?
What I am saying is - what do you do that cuts down a few of your chores every day? How do you save time or money or energy or effort in some way that you think maybe everyone else is doing, but we really aren't?
I'll go first.
It's a little one. And you may already do this. Or do this better. That's good. But here it is anyway.
There are a lot of dirty children running around this house on any given day. And only one of them showers without being reminded.
So I use bath time. And I use it well.
While the kids are enjoying their splishy-splashy I do one or many of the following activities . . .
Scrub the toilet
Wipe down the ever toothpaste stained sink
Clean the mirror (We have the best cleaner that Kevin won a case of in a golf tournament a few years back. I'll be sad when that mother load runs out. )
Lift my puny little weights
Read a novel
Make the random phone call
Paint art on the bathroom wall
Construct my grocery list
Soak my own feet and then give myself a pedicure
These activities keep me in the room since my chaps are mostly too small to be left alone in tubs of water. I sometimes let them eat popsicles during their bath time. I often brush their teeth while they bathe.
I sort of enjoy bath time. It's pretty productive.
Now it's your turn.
