Rebooting the house

My father fell several months ago and broke his hip.  Since then my family has been in a low-grade crisis mode, with all of us trying to help my mother as best we can.  This has meant a lot more travel for all of us than usual.  It has also meant a lot more emotional upheaval than usual.

At times like this, my greatest need is to have a to-do list, preferably one I don't have to create because that is just one more thing for my to-do list.  While browsing the interwebs, I found an article about freshening your home with feng shui.  It was meant as a Spring cleaning guide, but I am using it as my household reboot to-do list.  

Since my tendency whenever I'm stressed is to take to the waters, today Ella and I are going to tackle the family bathroom.  She picked the picture above because she likes pink and she likes things that smell good. I've heard that lavender stems can be burned as incense so after we finish feng shui-ing, we'll go out and cut a couple of stems and give it a go.

What is on household agenda this week?
