Rewarding

Since I fell pregnant I’ve had little energy and almost zero motivation. The house is falling apart…well not literally but I’m getting behind in so much stuff. It’s depressing me no end. I use a reward system with the kids and it works…some of the time…so I thought I’d come up with a reward chart to try to motivate myself. Don’t know if it’ll work but I’m willing to try anything at the moment.  Basically I get stickers for doing the gardening, exercising, my morning, afternoon and night routines, my weekly house blessing, my daily to do lists and getting the washing done folded and put away. Once I get 20 stickers I can hire a DVD of my choice. 40 stickers is a trip to the cinema,  60 is candy from Darrell Lea, 80 is a bubble bath or take away for dinner and 100 is my favourite of all. I either get to go out for dinner or DH has offered to cook me a 3 course dinner of my choice. Looking forward to that one. Dh is a great cook. He is an ex chef after all. Well that’s about it for me today. I need to get the clothes off the line.

Luv and hugs

God Bless

I would say the reward system is a good idea but so is resting when you need to! Sleep will be a commodity once baby comes....
