    I have been making sure the house is fully clean before bed every night, so I wake up to a clean house and pick up as we go. It makes my life so much easier. Oh, I guess I could re mop. That would be a good 10 min blitz.

    Oh, but I have the whole family chip in! Kids pick up their stuff, dinner dishes, wipe stuff down, I vacuum, tidy up bathroom after night showers, dh picks up his stuff. It is a group effort here.

    JoAnna I do the same thing - make sure the whole house is picked up and start the dishwasher before bed. It isn't hard to keep my house picked up. My dd13 doesn't make any messes and we try to confine any messes from dd6 in her room or playroom. Thankfully I have trained them to pick up after themselves. Now if I could only train my dear husband to do the same I'd be golden! lol!

    One feature I love on my dishwasher is delay start. That way, I can set it up to start in two hours, go upstairs and take a shower and not have to come downstairs after to start it. Or I can put a load of laundry on before going to bed, and still do a load of dishes two or four hours later.

    That's a great idea! I usually take my shower in the a.m., but DH takes his at night. I tend to get the dishwasher all loaded and ready, but then forget to start it after he's done in the bathroom. It never occured to me to put it on the delay. (I do the same thing with the washing machine. It also has a delayed start I'll have to use).

    I have reviewed all of your 10 posts and there is none that you have started mentioning being pregnant???? did I miss it? I did see you changed some of your posts this morning.

    I know this is a very supportive forum I don't think we would let good news go un noticed if it was in its own post.

    There was actually nothing to miss. I don't know what this posters problem is. Just went off like that over nothing.
