Good Morning, today is Friday, for me that is the day I clean my home. I have fallen off that wagon some with the crazy summer we've had and that is such a poor excuse for not being more on top of my home and family's needs.
With school starting Monday, I wanted to get myself back to being a little more organized so that I don't feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Padding my nest, being prepared for the storm that always comes so that my chicks will be safe, and setting the tone of my home so the world stays firmly outside.
Friday, is the day I deep clean, do laundry, get church bags together make sure church clothing is ready for Sunday, plan the weekends menus including Sunday's crockpot meal , and this year go to the library, seminary, and small errands.
Saturday and Sunday is family, church, and day of rest, we try to use the dishwasher on the weekend otherwise the kids do dishes daily.
Monday, light cleaning, laundry from weekend, wash towels and sheets, iron, soak litter box.
Tuesday, mending that might need done
Wednesday, is youth and errands at Sams club or walmart if needed etc
Thursday, nothing to much its payday so errands every other week if needed
Some of my Fridays 2 a month are volunteer days for the Bishop's storehouse so during that week I might do some of my Friday stuff Thursday depends.
My goal is to spend as much time with my kids and school work than on housework. But since that is never ending streamlining makes it easier. I also am a minimalist and don't like alot stuff that I have to take care of and that helps.
I don't always fullfill this goal and that stresses me and I feel the pull of needing to be perfect. Which I know only defeats the purpose.
Today, I have a load of whites on the line and another load almost done. Ash is going to make biscuits soon and the rest of the day will hopefully go smoothly.
How do you keep yourself on track?
Have a Blessed Day
