It's Saturday (in most of the world right now, at least, I think only four time zones have reached Sunday yet) and Saturday is the day that many people tackle household tasks.

The tale of my office )

So, that's what 30 minutes can go. So here's my challenge: Pick a Thing you have been putting off way too long now (cleaning the fridge? sorting the yarn stash? cleaning out the wardrobe?). Tell me about it her and get your encouragement :) Pick an hour of the weekend where you are not busy with something else and then just do the Thing for 30 minutes. Afterwards, relax for 30 minutes and tell us what you accomplished.

A question to the community:

If you live in a 2-people-or-more household, how do you share the chores? Do you have any tips on chore-sharing (lists, alternating weeks, etc.)?

So, after yet another 10 hour day after which I had no strength to go shopping, I have to ask:

What food do you people keep in stock to tide you over these days?

EDIT: Gosh, you are all amazing. So many great ideas to keep me going over the next few weeks :)

So, I am lazy. Heh, no surprise there, many of us are.

I also want everything being done and over with when I sit down and have dinner in the evening. So whatever needs to get done in the household, I will do right after I come home or it'll cost me a lot more energy to get up and do it later.

I also, and this is a bad combination, am responsible for the laundry in my household. Coming home at 5-6, then putting things in the washing machine mans it's done by around 8, at which point I will either not notice that it's done or won't have the energy to care. So then I get to hang it up to dry at 10-ish before I go to bed. Which sucks. I also can't just turn it on in the morning because then it will smell when I come back.

However, washing-machine-building-people actually seem to care about me! As I recently discovered, my washing machine has a button for "wash until the last cycle, resume when button is pushed again".

So now I can gather up the laundry in the mornings, turn it on, come back in the evenings and push the button, and fold the laundry from the last load just in time for the current one to finish.

Voila, problem solved. Reading the manual sometimes does help ;)
