The hardest thing for me to get done is for my children to clean their rooms!
I find it is like pulling teeth, you keep grasping ways to get them to do it. I have tried bribing my children with money, treats like McDonald’s, and even threatening to not allow television time. Yet nothing seems to stick.
One mother has told me that if her children leave garbage around the house, she asks them once to pick it up then she puts it in their bedroom so they can see what they are leaving around the house. I’d do that but then my kids rooms would look like a local dump!
The problem is mainly my fault. When my kids were little I picked up after them. I figured they were children and they needed to be allowed to play without the worry of chores. Now it is coming to bit me in the behind for doing so.
So now my husband and I are stuck with actually doing the cleaning for them. Maybe we will get it right when we have grandchildren!
How do you get your children to clean up after themselves?
Who wouldn’t love someone to come in to your home and clean it for the holidays. (Talk about a chance to catch up on Maury and Ricki while they do! ) Well now you may be able to get your chance! Scotch-Bright is having an ultimate cleaning experience with two visits from their cleaning team along with Scotch-Bright cleaning supplies! (Retail value of cleaning and supplies $1000)

Well a lot has happened this summer that caused it to go by quite fast! After my PD surgery. I had training to use the machine for a week.
What the machine does is it drains me first to make sure all fluid is out of my cavity, then fills me up with fluid (I am on 2000 ml now each fill) and sits for an hour. Then it drains out and fills me up again. This is done for 6 cycles a night. At first the draining hurt. They stated it was because it was new. They were very correct because now it feels like intense hunger pains. I can handle that feeling and I have no problem sleeping through the draining. (it only happens at first and last drain) I am loving PD Dialysis now because it doesn’t drain me the way Hemodialysis does. After Hemo you can barely move. You feel worn out in ways I can’t even begin to explain. And at the same time you are insanely hungry.
Just a week ago I had my perm catheter removed from my chest. This was done by freezing needles. Sadly the freezing didn’t take for me (i don’t know why because the last time it did) and I felt the scalpel. The doctor then placed in 2 more needles. I was frozen but still felt pain due to doctor hitting a bone during removal. It hurt a lot. But nothing really serious went wrong so I am thankful. I did cry like a baby though. Thankfully I wont need this catheter placed back in.
Now I am just enjoying life and spending time with my family. I am now able to help out at the school more and being more involved with the kids. It is such a different story from last year when I was too tired to move most days.
