In Topic: 10 Tips For Keeping A House Clean Despite Adhd

08 December 2013 - 06:26 PM

I have a list that I made and hung on my fridge. Every day has a "big" task and a "little" task on it. Big tasks are things like cleaning the kitchen, cleaning the bathroom, laundry day, vacuuming, etc. (As in a full clean, not just a wipe down) Little tasks would be wiping mirrors, sweeping the balcony, folding laundry etc. (You can find suggestions if you Google "cleaning list" or something) Usually I do a big laundry overhaul on Wednesdays so Thursday's duty is to fold everything and give the laundry room a wipe down.


If I stick to it then it makes everything really short and simple because something is always being tidied. Even if you are lazy one day (or two) it generally doesn't make a huge difference and when I have company over I don't have to do a major clean to make my place presentable.

Butch lesbians are women. You might see them as "manly" but they aren't denying their womanhood or confused about it or whatever- their take on being women might be a bit different than yours is, but that doesn't mean it's wrong. So yeah, it's understandable that she was offended. Depending in how tolerant your community is, she might hear that sort of thing all the time, and if does, she is probably pretty dang sick of it.

On a different note, I have no issues with people using the restroom of whichever sex they identify as. I've worked with several folks who were born men but identified as women and, frankly, I think it would have been kind of weird for them to use the men's room.

Be what ya wanna be, live how you wanna live, pee where you wanna pee. Doesn't hurt me any.


This. I fully agree 100%.


I suppose I'm considerably more open minded than most. I have many friends who are lesbian and many who dress butch, but that doesn't mean they don't think of themselves as women. I think she had a right to be offended. What would you have liked her to do in order to conform to your standards of being a woman? Should she have worn a wig? Pushed her breasts out? Put on tight jeans? Wore lipstick? Just because she's not what society says a woman should look like, doesn't mean she's not a woman and should be treated as such.


Like honestly, how often do men wander into women's bathrooms? Unless you're in a bar and the dude is a drunk moron, I can't see it happening. I can't see a man just wandering into a mall bathroom full of women and being all "heeyyy laddiesss." It would never cross my mind that someone with a stereotypical "masculine" appearance was a man just coming in to peep through the stall door and watch me cringe as I hover over a gross public toilet. If anyone, male or female, was creeping on me then yes, I would say something.

Thanks for the tips!


I did think to flip the heater switch off of it. I don't know if the barn owner leaves them on all year round, but mine was on and I think the extra heat was growing algae. That seemed to help slow it down a bit. I think my gelding drinks in between bites of hay, which doesn't help.


I'll try the bleach and see how that works.

Storey, that second pic is amazing! I'm so in awe of you and your bravery. I'd be closing my eyes and screaming as we went over that lol. And he looks so happy and healthy in the last one. :)


I haven't jumped in about a year. I quit with my h/j coach because things were not going well. I wasn't enjoying my rides and it was reflecting in my horse. The two of us were miserable and he was so unhappy so I made the decision to find a new coach. I decided to go back to my dressage roots and found a dressage coach that I love. We get along really well, I love her teaching style and both Oliver and I are much more relaxed and are having tons of fun. We're showing First Level at our first dressage show together at the end of this month. Yay.


I've given up on trying to sell him because apparently there is no market for ponies that can only be ridden by small adults. So I'm just going to ride him for fun because I'm short and I really don't need to sell him and I have no other goals other than to just enjoy my pony. :D


I don't have a pic of me riding, but here's one I took this afternoon. I got a new helmet so I had to take a pic lol. He's so unimpressed with his fly bonnet.
