I really like Lisa's answer! My children are grown and gone from home, but I remember well what you are describing. I, too, went to school full time while my children were small. Are there things you do now that really don't matter that much? For example, do clothes that do not wrinkle really need to be folded and put away? Why not just have a basket for each child and leave the clean clothes in the basket? Some would think this is a radical idea, but there are so many more important things than neatly folded clothes! As Lisa says, do the important things and let other things go! (And, do not feel guilty about it.) When my children were tall enough to reach the controls on the washer and dryer I turned that chore over to them. It helped me, and it helped them to learn responsibility.
