Household Chores are a lot more fun thanks to Netfix #StreamTeam #netflixkids

People ask me all the time how I do it.  How do I manage to stay sane while performing everything required of a busy mom of 5. While I'm not a 100% sure I am fully sane, I do know it helps that I allow myself little pleasures like watching Netflix while I perform mundane tasks.  Let's face it.  Household chores like dishes, laundry, cooking, and housecleaning are far less boring when you sneak in a few episodes here and there of your newest Netflix fascination.

A visit to KeyLime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort in Gurnee, IL #promocode


It probably goes without saying that Back-to-School shopping can turn in to an arduous task with even one child in tow let alone the need to bring along 4 or 5.  In fact if I could try on the shoes and clothes for the kids, I'd take on the whole task solo just to spare everyone.  We did get virtually everything we needed in record time and with a nice savings at Gurnee Mills Mall this year, but still ... it's not the same as a pleasure trip of shopping with just the girls.  What did help greatly this year, was combining our big back to school shop with an overnight stay at nearby KeyLime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort also in Gurnee, IL.
