My husband is out of work at the moment but his depression got bad for a bit too. He's feeling better but we're so far behind.Anyway, we have four girls. M is 5. She's in kindergarten and is homeschooled for multiple reasons. I is 3 and K is 2. K is mostly potty trained but still has accidents. E is only 4 months and is breastfed and cloth diapered both of which take up time and require more work. We also have a cat that we rescued as a kitten back in April but we're most likely giving her to the neighbors soon.Anyway, we've been slowly making progress from everything being a good 3 (some areas a 4) and we we're fine with the slow progress but we have multiple reasons to speed it up.We just got notified that next Wednesday, we have an inspection. Plus a family member that we haven't seen in 11 months dropped by out of the blue. We didn't let her in but she and her SO have called CPS for us in the past for every little thing they disagree with like not dragging the girls out of bed a 10pm so they could "check on them." So I'm expecting a knock on the door from a social worker now too.Oh and we are heading down south to visit family for Christmas. We'll be gone 3+ weeks and my husband wants to try to find a job down there so we can move closer to my mom so I have to prepare for a possible move (which is a big reason for rehoming kitty.)Anyway to the important part. Current stages for each room...Mud room 1-2Living room 1-2Dining room 1Kitchen 1-2Extra room 3-4 (but no bodily fluids)Stairs/landing 1-2 (stairs are clear. Landing not so much)Hall 2-3Bathroom 2-4 (I cleared it out but it's still kind of gross)Master bedroom 4M&I's room 2-3K's room 3.So our work is cut out for us.
