Thanks, Self!


This week absolutely flew by! Since I've been back to work for almost 3 weeks already, I've discovered that my days and nights just seem shorter than ever. I never feel like I get enough done during the day and at night, I never feel like I am rested enough by the time the another day begins. And the cycle just keeps going and going and...

Last Sunday night, I did myself a favor. I spent nearly an hour putting away the last bit of laundry, picking up toys, and preparing for my week. My preparation and the favor to myself was that I laid out 5 days of outfits for myself, Elaina and Lincoln. As if that weren't enough, I looked at our evening schedule and planned what we were having for dinner for the entire week! Seriously!! If you only knew how anal I am about being organized, this shouldn't really come to much of a shock to you. I was just impressed that I did it and it went so smoothly.

It's funny to think that just putting those little morning and evening hassles at bay for the week, saves such an enormous amount of time and procrastinating when you really need to be getting down to business to get things done.

If you want to know where to find me on a Sunday night, just look for me in my closet or refrigerator!

I think that you learned some of that at home-- that is how I used to get Greg to be able to get to school on time. When I finished the laundry, I would put together his outfits on coat hangers with the belt the top of the hanger and the socks tucked into the pocket. I still do that with my own clothes as I put them away so that I make different outfits using my favorite pants and shirts. That way the students don't see in the same outfit week after week. (Good luck on sticking to the menu you planned on Sunday night. With your young family, you might get away with it. As they get older and busier, it gets a lot harder.
