Easy Peasy Chore Chart System ~ Review

Chore time is one of my least favorite parts of the day. To say that Riley has a hard time with her chores would be a massive understatement. She is seven years old and has maybe ten minutes worth of chores a day. These would be making sure her room is clean, emptying 6 small trash cans into the big kitchen trash can, emptying 4 laundry hampers into the dirty clothes bins. That’s it. There are other chores depending on the day but those are her incredibly hard chores she is responsible for every morning. I cannot remember the last time she managed to get them all done on her own in under thirty minutes without someone following her from room to room to point out each trash can or laundry hamper.

I have tried lists and chore charts but they never worked very well. Riley is very visual. I’ve even thought about trying to find stickers or pictures to put on her dresser drawers so she can remember which ones her shirts go into. Of course, I always forgot about doing it or when I would sit down to try and find fun pictures for her I’d get side tracked by something else. Alina at Good Old Days Farm has done all the work that I’ve been meaning to get around to and I’m so thankful! The Easy Peasy Chore Chart System comesin black and white pictures for you to color or in full color that are ready to go.WhatsIncluded-copy

 

I was slightly overwhelmed when I saw that there are over 300 cards in the system. You don’t have to print them all out at once and some of them you might not ever use. The system is set up to help the “average family keep their home in above average shape”.EasyPeasyChoreLove-copy

The last week around here has been crazy hectic. We ended up giving up the contract on the house we were building due to something that happened on Wednesday. I’m a little disappointed but over all I’m surprisingly relieved. It’s a long story and one I’m not going to go into detail on but getting out of the contract means we have to figure out a new plan on what to do. Chores have not been at the top of our list of things to get done. It’s been a bigger battle than usual and I wish that I’d had the time to implement this plan before the last week happened. It’s half way set up in baseball card holders which is why I needed to use Alina’s pictures of her system and not my own. The one’s I do have printed out and have been using with Riley have been a big help. She might not remember all the trash cans but she’s remembering to at least get a few of them. It’s a step in the right direction and any step in a positive direction is a good one.

House Building Progress

We have progress on our house! Yippee for walls, stairs and trusses! I guess we’re still about 6 or 7 days behind schedule but all the major decisions have been made and the county inspector came out on Friday but there are only some minor things that need to be fixed which is a bonus.

Here are some updated pictures.

We happened to go out to the house the day they were pouring the mud for the front porch and are we ever lucky that we did! The crew out there was amazing! It was the same crew who did the ramp in the garage for us. Turns out they had no idea what they were doing because they’d never been asked to pour a ramp in a garage before. They just free formed it and I love it! There are no edges to run off of.

They were just finishing up the slab and had a pile of mud left over when we started talking with them. Colby and his wheelchair came up and we were talking about how excited we were that we’d only have one step into the front of the house and how perfect the ramp in the garage was. The guy asked us if we’d like him to use the leftover mud to do the same thing on the front door and on the walkway out of the garage. Now the only steps we will have are off the back porch and it’s only one step instead of the three we originally thought there was going to be. How perfect is that?

I’m excited that in the another week we’re moving on to the next phase. Dry wall will go up. Cabinets and flooring will be installed. We’ll finally be able to see all our decisions start coming together.

Do you Homeschool?

I am so excited to tell you about the new Build your Bundle sale that’s starting on July 21st 2014. The only thing is there’s so much I can’t tell you about yet! I have several products from different bundles that I’ll be sharing with you and a maybe even a giveaway or two. I remember starting out with Jahnna and what a leap of faith it was. I’d been a teacher but I was still a little overwhelmed when it came to my own child. Weird, right? I was so thankful for the knowledge of others and what they shared with me during those first few transition months. There is plenty of good stuff in these bundles.

If you don’t homeschool is there still going to be something for you? Absolutely! Like I said this is a great event and I hope by the 21st you’ll be as excited about it as I am. I’ve already planned what I’m going to get. In the meantime be sure and head over to the giveaway page and enter to win money towards your purchase. Here’s more of the details for you.

Chemo round #4

IMG_0703

The good news is we’re on round 4 of 6. The somewhat bad news is they took John off of one of the three chemo drugs he’s been taking. Funny how they don’t like it when you go into an anaphylactic  to a medication. John briefly tried to plead for an epi pen and the doctor shut him down on that one fast with a very firm “No!” The doctor said he doesn’t feel bad about him not completing more rounds of the Procarbazine because of the three drugs that one is the least effective. The one that is the most effective is the CCNU which he is also allergic to but with preventative steroids and antihistamines he thinks we can manage his reaction to that drug. Blood work was good from yesterday so tomorrow he starts the preventative meds and Thursday he takes his dose of CCNU for this round. Here’s hoping there is no facial swelling and hives this weekend because my entire family will be in town and my mom wants a huge family picture.

Yesterday Colby had his Botox and Phenol shots. He was in such a good mood until the doctor came in. He was laying on the  bed and I was laying next to him because the dumb hospital bed remote control is super short. He didn’t want any of the cartoons that were playing on the t.v. and he started getting mad until I started telling each channel to shoo or to go away. He was laughing so hard he was crying! This video is about three minutes into it. Sorry for the super close up of his face but I couldn’t get it any farther away and keep changing the channel.

After I finished uploading the video I played it for him and he’s laughing even harder at himself laughing. He keeps trying to say Shoo. I could listen to that laugh all day long and never get tired of it!

 

In other news we have foundation walls on our house! Yippee! Hopefully they will start framing this week.

IMG_0703

 

I think that’s it for this last week. Schools out now and that always makes life a little difficult because Colby is home all day. Let’s just say I don’t get much accomplished but it’s still good to have everyone home.
