Every day I blog. In my head. I miss blogging. And I'm not exactly sure how or when I'm going to catch up. But I've had an idea, and I hope it will work.
For years I wasn't able to really keep a schedule. Sort of, but not really. And there are so many things that beg to get done every day, that I'm feeling rather overwhelmed. Unpack boxes. Hang photos. Finish the will paperwork. Clean the kitchen. Fold the laundry. Feed the baby. Pay bills. Change our address with a handful of entities. Pull weeds. Exercise. Read with Cora. Plan a menu. Make dinner. Sweep. It's endless, and I feel like if I spend lots of time doing one thing (like cleaning) that other things suffer for it (like hanging pictures, and I'm just waiting for a really nice one to get kicked, then stepped on). So I've come up with something that hopefully will work:
7:00--get up, do 7-minute ab workout, read scriptures, pray
7:30--kids' alarm, breakfast, pack lunches, take them to school
9:30--computer time (email/blog/facebook/billpay/freecycle/craigslist/diaperswappers/youtube)
12:30--read with Cora
1:00--household stuff/errands/laundry/unpacking/menu planning
3:15--pick up kids/snack time
3:30--outside for either gardening OR play/exercise time at the park
7:30--family scripture study/prayer
It hasn't worked yet.
So I know it still needs some tweaking. Everything's okay until after school, when everything falls apart and we're not eating dinner until 7:00, and I never did get any exercise in. I'll work on it.
Riah told me he's proud of me for making this up. He said that he's glad that he'll be limiting my
Anyhow, hopefully this will help me to be able to eat my elephant in teeny tiny bites instead of being overwhelmed at the sheer size of the herd.
Wish me luck!
