Blitz-It Friday # 7 survival blitz
Hey! It’s time to blitz-it again. For those of you who are just blitzing for the first time, here are some great starting points.
Basically, blitzing is forcing ourselves to focus for a set period of time on hands-on tasks.
You can choose any length of time to work and any type of chores to work on. Basically, I am just trying to challenge my own ability to focus and be productive in the home. You can join in the fun–it’s easy!
What I did this week:
This is one of those crazy weeks where I had the food purchased, planned and organized, but not enough time to be productive in the kitchen! What I did manage to cook left a huge wake in the culinary sea! Rather than shovel all my dishes into the trash can, I decided to blitz the kitchen!
The last few weeks of school for co-oping homeschoolers is… nuts!! So, while my kids were helping each other finish up their projects and homework for the co-op expose’ “A Night at the Museum”, I was trying to figure out how they were going to eat and transport themselves to the various activities without loosing a child or chipping a tooth.. Oh wait! The tooth was chipped this morning by a child who fell in the shower. So, add an emergency trip to the dentist in with the various things, and you’ve got our life. This sort of life leaves you with a messy house, as some of you may know!
So, I set the timer for an hour hoping to make a dent!
In one hour:
loaded dishwasher and ran it
started a batch of black beans in the pressure cooker
put a load of dishrags in the washer/ ran load
swept and mopped the floor
turned off beans, let cool
and five minutes left:
folded a batch of towels and put them away!
So, then I waited for my hubby to get home, and we had a light dinner of black beans, cheese, salsa and organic blue corn chips–yummy.
So, let’s link up and show off ‘yer stuff
