Circuit Scheduling

So, my house is semi-upside down after moving stuff around the house this week. I came up with a little plan that's worked pretty well so far, and I wanted to share!

Here's what my To-Do list looks like:

1. Laundry
2. Dishes/kitchen
3. Parlour
4. Bedroom
5. Kids' room
6. Laundry
7. Bathroom
8. Pantry
9. Dishes/kitchen

Looks undetailed, doesn't it? Well, what I've been trying is to set the timer for 10 minutes and pick up wherever I am in the circuit. I always start with filling the dishpan with warm water, starting the washer, and filling the brita. Then I start on the "actual" room I'm supposed to be in.

What I've been doing has been working. I usually get through 3 complete circuits every 2 days- and I'm starting to see a real difference. The most important thing is to take a break every 3-4 stops on the circuit. If I don't, I'll burn out.
