A while back on Instagram (in January of this year), Beth Allison
, the awesome and motivating mother of twin boys Asher and Eli, started something I just couldn’t stay away from.
Hashtag #20choretuesday … take a look next time you’re in Instagram.
People post their lists of 20 chores they plan to accomplish during the day, pictures of their progress, and their updated lists with items proudly crossed off.
I LOVE this. I love taking a peek at other people’s to-dos (incidentally, I also really like when people post pictures of what’s in their purse, share what they ate, and share their daily schedules. I love learning about the minutiae of other people’s days.) and I enjoy having other people “cheer me on” as I cross things off of my own list.
If this all seems too odd to you, carry on with your day… but if you’re the same type of person (and I know I’m not alone), why don’t you join in? I’m going to (with Beth’s permission) host a weekly 20 Chore Tuesday roundup here at Joyful Abode! Each week, I’ll post my list, and possibly update the post as the day goes on.
There will be a “linky” at the bottom of the post where you can link to your own blog posts for 20 chore Tuesday.
Let’s make Tuesday the most productive day of the week!
Here’s my list for today. I use the Cozi Family app for my lists. I love it and so does everyone who has tried it on my recommendation. Give it a go (it’s free) or write your list on a notepad, in Word, on a post-it, or on your hand. But write it! Share! And Link up!
Ready to play?
(I hope I remember to make all of these calls early in the day. I often forget until after naptime, and then it’s too late to call because offices are closed or it’s too late on the East coast.)
The kids are BOTH napping right now so I have a few minutes on the computer! I’m going to work on computery tasks while I can, then call my sister and rotate books if there is still time .I’m “saving” the front yard/outside chores for when Anneliese wakes up, so she can play outside while I work on those.I’ve also done some things that weren’t on the list, like laundry, dishes, and sweeping the kitchen. So here’s the list right now:
