  1. This is something that I do all the time. As I dont like tv ads if I'm watching something on tv sometimes I do something while the ad is on then stop when the ads are finished & the show is back on.

    A friend of mine who use to work as a home maker (remember those days of home makers?) even had her chores divded up something like this (this is what I can remember on her chat but it was more fuller then that, but still gave her time for herself & her family)

    Daily Chores: Wash Dishes and cooking stuff/clean kitchen every day,Make Beds. Put inside rubbish out

    Monday: Washing/clean/tidy up laundry room also wash bed sheets

    Tuesday:Dusting in all rooms

    Wednesday:Sweep/Vaccum floors through out the place, put rubbish bins out for collecting

    Thursday: Shopping

    Friday: General Tidy up through the place.

    Saturday/Sunday Relax

    It would only take an hour or two at the most of her day leaving the rest of the time for herself during the weekday & all weekend with the family.
