Tag Archives: Forty chore Friday

Welcome to the second installment of Forty Chore Friday. I wonder if anyone will join me in this. I guess I kind of doubt it because 40 chores are kind of a lot. And it’s Friday. But maybe someone else will understand my reasoning and find that they feel the same. :)

Here is my list:


I failed at grocery shopping earlier in this week and have to do it today, unfortunately. So I got a head start on a few of these things yesterday when I realized my problem. Stopping at the Farmer’s Market AND the Co-op usually knocks out the entire first part of our day.


Here are the results of today’s Forty Chore Friday:


I have to finish moving the boxes that were on the stairs. I may steam mop tonight after Olive goes to bed and while Honey is outside. I didn’t print the CSA photos but I might do that later. And I didn’t mark the hallway shelves for cutting.

I started with 40 things. I didn’t do 4 things. I added 7 things. I might do 3/4 of the things left.

So today was 43-46 Chore Friday. :)

Have you noticed a lot of people doing twenty chore Tuesday posts? On their blogs and on Instagram? Or mentioning it on twitter?

Tuesdays don’t work for me. I typically go grocery shopping on Tuesdays which cuts out about half the day.

Fridays work much better for me. Why? Maybe you’ve noticed this phenomenon as well. Stay at home parents seem to have a difficult time on the weekends when the other parent is home. Maybe that sounds weird, and I don’t mean it in an offensive way, but things get thrown off. You relax (or try to). Children act differently. There are more dirty dishes, more things to put away. And an addition human being, and ADULT human being, to interact with.

Starting today I’m doing forty chore Friday. Because forty is way better than twenty. And also because its kind of my finial push to prepare for the weekend. Get things extra organized, prepare for an activities we may be doing, whatever. Just get ready for the different than is the weekend.

Here is my list:


Let me know if you would like to participate too!

And don’t forget.. No one will die if you don’t cross everything off of your list. ;)
