December 9-15…the first week!
Oh! What a Week began with much anticipation and excitement! I color code, so each color refers to a specific individual in our family, and purple alerts ALL of us. I use a cloud bubble to bring extra attention to an item.
On Sunday, the 8th, I filled out our week.
I added things as the week progressed. On Thursday, there were 2 chores that my kids needed to do THAT DAY. I also wanted my husband to help them, so I put a cloud bubble around their chore with orange, my husband’s color. Since we are still in the training stages, I pointed out both that I had added something to their days, and that I wanted my husband to help them do the task. It sort of worked. I’m pretty sure he helped with the bed, but I know he didn’t help with the porch furniture. But both chores got done, so that was the important thing!
On Sunday, the 15th, our week was finished!
Things were added along the way. I loved grabbing my Sharpies and writing new things on the schedule. I love that this is only the beginning and this system will be fine tuned each week.
Right now, it is mostly for events and appointments that involve my family members, and any event or appointment that I have, that also impacts their day. The chores listed are things that are not every day or every week chores. I notice them, quickly jot them down so I don’t forget about them, then point them out to the individual! I do plan to list the laundry days each week at the bottom.
I loved having it on my fridge. Next week is already up and I can’t wait to see what the week will bring!!
