My life feels chaotic. I want to have time to read a book or watch a film with DP. I seem to spend all week at work then cleaning, doing laundry, preparing food/ luncboxes etc. I have a chronic condition that leaves me in pain & exhausted so I need to try to reduce the amount I do.
Obviously, people still need to be fed but I've started using frozen chopped onion (I can't cut veg easily) and making 2 sets of sandwiches for DS's lunchbox so he can have one that day & 1 is ready for the next day.
I try to never leave a room without taking something with me to put away & I use the dishwasher for pretty much everything & fill it to bursting before it goes on.
DS usually goes in the bath after me (so saving water & time to run another bath).
What else could I do to make things easier for myself?
I tend to go over the bathroom when the kids are in the bath. I use those anti-bac wipe things and just chuck when I'm done. I find I have to keep everything in its place all the time. I've got much more proactive about putting things away. For some reason even if there a just a couple of things where they shouldn't be the house descends into a tip within the hour.
