I have found with 7 people in the house we accumulate a lot of socks. This is my least favorite job, sock sorting. For you mothers who are just starting out I would suggest you to get all your socks at one store. then you do not have millions of different kinds of socks. Walmart has some awesome ones that are have colored heels to tell you the size. For example blue heel is small etc etc...

Enough of my rambling I better go sort some socks.

The timer

I have found that I can get side tracked very easy. For example, I go down to the toy room to clean it up and I find a sippy cup. I take the sippy cup up stairs and while I'm in the kitchen I see that the dishes need to be done. I start doing the dishes and I see that there are dishes on the table. As I go to get them I trip on Cannons nerf gun. Then I take the gun and down to the toy room and start cleaning up in the toy room again.

Yes I think I'm losing it. I do not remember being so scatter brained. Since I end up all over the house and not getting much done I've decided using a timer works the best for me kinda like what fly lady has you use. I will set the timer for ten min. and stay in one room until the timer rings. Wow it really works. I can actually get things cleaned up. I hope I'm not the only one with this problem.

I hate to say it but I think I'm getting older or maybe it's having five or more kids in the house. Here is another example of my scatter brain. I called Court at work and as the phone was ringing I saw something across the room so I put the phone down and went and did it. I totally forgot I was calling someone. A few min. later the phone started beeping cause it was off the hook. So I put the phone back on the hook and did think for a second I think I need to call Court. No need for that , Court called a few min. later asking if everything was ok cause when he answered the phone when I called him nobody was there except for a house of people talking. I told him the story and we got a good laugh. Oh well I think I may be losing my marbles and if that's the case I'm going to have a hard time finding them in this house.
