Never enough hours

Sometimes I wonder where the day goes. It seems with each passing hour, I become more disorganized. My house is a disaster. The laundry is piled high and the floor needs a good
sweeping, dishes in the sink and the dishwasher's empty. Can anyone tell how to get a
teenager to notice this everyday crap that needs to be done and lend a hand? I've tried
offering to pay a weekly allowance for help. It doesn't phase them. I came home from work
and flipped. Instead of killing them, I sought refuge in my yard. Which is in dire need as well
for a good spring shape up so I spent hours in the yard until it got dark and I couldn't stand up
straight from the planting, weeding and mulching. I walked in expecting to have to cook dinner too but was surprised by an awesome smell. My daughter actually cooked and it was delicious.
I guess she's not completely blind to the household everyday issues.
I took a shower then enjoyed the meal. But guess who got to clean the Kitchen. LOL.

I know what you mean Tara, there are just never enough hours in the day. I feel for you, teenagers will be teenagers and it is not in the job description to be thoughtful, considerate or helpful when at home. For most of them anyway :)
