I feel like I shouldn't be so tired when I have been blessed with a baby that sleeps through the night. Wendy slept from midnight to 6 am. Only waking up once halfway through needing help finding her pacifier. But I couldn't help but doze on the couch as Emily scattered her newly organized Barbie and Kelly dolls over the playroom floor and Bradley and Sarah spilled, stomped and crushed Goldfish over the family room floor. Normally, the mess would cause much screaming and yelling. But today I didn't care. The mess was worth the sleep time. Perhaps it's the weather. A rainy day can make you lazy. A rainy day can also make your yard a mess. We've been parking our new van basically in our yard. Everytime it rains we get a mess of mud where the tires have worn away the grass. So we have been parking the van in our narrow street. We'll probably get a ticket eventually. We just can't seem to come up with an inexpensive solution to our mud problem.

Time saving strategies:

  1. Teach your family to turn clothes right side out.
  2. Read your scriptures while stretching.
  3. Exercise with your kids.
  4. Read in the bathroom.
  5. Don't put kids clothes away.
  6. Buy diet drinks.
  7. Don't dress your kids until after lunch.
  8. Wash sheets once a month.
  9. Bathe kids once a week or on an as needed basis.
  10. Don't purchase items with intentions of returning.
  11. Buy in bulk.
  12. Don't rinse the dishes before putting in dishwasher.
  13. Pee in the shower.
  14. Don't wash your hair everyday.
