I have an idea for your daughters' room. Pick up everything that's not in the proper place and put it all in trash bags. They have to "earn" the things back by keeping the rest of what's left in their room nice and neat. They can get one item per day if they keep it all neat. If it's not neat, they get an item taken away again. If most of the stuff is clothes, they'll eventually get tired of wearing the same things over and over again and hopefully keep the room clean. And if the stuff is toys, they'll eventually want to play with them and hopefully keep the room clean. Also, it'd be a good time to pare down their belongings a bit if they need to be.
As for me, I don't have any whines. I've been waiting for this day just so I could do my Wednesday Woohoos! First, we finally got the A/C in the truck fixed so now we don't have to roast anymore. We had to turn it off the other day because we were cold-- it was awesome. Second, our child support drama with the ex-wife is over! Any back support that the court said he owed because he didn't pay through the court is now null and void. Since the lady at the court house said he technically has to pay $80 a week, we started paying that instead of the $60 we had been paying. That way there will never again be a question of back support. That black cloud that's been hanging over our heads is gone. Phew! Third, my sister is coming to visit in two weeks!! It turns out that DH has known since his b-day in March but she wanted it kept secret to surprise me. I haven't seen her since October 2005 and she obviously hasn't met Alisha yet. I can't wait!
