Professional Picker-Upper

On Saturday I hurt my back putting the paddle boat back so it has been sore all week.  Nothing serious but still really sore.  Sunday morning I was really feeling it and that’s when I noticed how much of my day is spent picking things up…all day long…all kinds of stuff.  I’m not sure if “picking stuff up and putting it away” is a marketable skill but boy do I have years of experience in it.  As the week has gone on I have asked the kids to help out quite a bit more.  The word of the week is RESISTANCE.  Not all the time, not all the kids but it was a force.  I’ve thought about paying the kids a buck for every time they say “Sure mom!”  Bribery, yes.  But after 21 days it is technically supposed to become a habit and then I could stop the scrupulous payments. OR the kids could just pick up their own stuff!!
