I don’t know about you, but I am a list maker. I love checking off things I have accomplished, and I love making budget spreadsheets, vacation checklists, and even grocery lists are a weekly occurrence in our home. Lately I have been feeling overwhelmed with everything on my plate. So, today, I decided to start making a daily list of the most important things I want to accomplish. It can’t be a long list or it will feel overwhelming, and I won’t get anything done (did I mention I’m a procrastinator!). I am going to try to just put 4 or 5 things on the list each day and see what I can get accomplished. I also have read organization books that say to just spend 15 minutes a day quickly cleaning up each room in your house, and it will stay a lot cleaner. And having a clean home will make you happier! So I am going back to doing that as well. After having a baby 3 months ago, my life kind of got out focus. Now that things are settling down, I am determined to get back to my routine. So, 15 minutes of quick cleaning per room, and deep cleaning/organizing one room a day is on my list. Also, of course, is homeschooling, and making my meal/grocery lists. The last thing on my list, I hate to do almost as much as I hate doing dishes. Laundry. It seems like no matter how many items of clothing I give away, we accumulate 10x that! Don’t get me wrong, I am very thankful that my kids have clothes without rips and stains, and I am soooo thankful for the hand me down’s people have blessed us with and the awesome deals I get shopping for clothes. But, having a baby with reflux is like having a never ending cycle of laundry to clean. But, anyway, that is on my list for today as well. Learning, cleaning, organizing. Doesn’t seem like too much to handle. I hope the baby cooperates and lets me get this stuff done. I forgot how hard it is to get things accomplished when all you want to do is snuggle all day 🙂 So, if you are having trouble getting motivated. Try to make a list. Just a short list. And see what you can get accomplished today. Doing something is always better than doing nothing!
