Pulling Myself Together

My house is wreck.

In fact, my house is a HUGE wreck.

It's really bothering both Kyle and myself and I'm sure in some small way it bothers Maddox, too, when he's tripping over things all over the floor while he's trying out his new mad walking skills.

So, I'm armed and ready. I put together a daily schedule that I'm attempting to closely follow, as well as a chart for the week on what chores need to get done each day.

At 10pm, Kyle and I stop what we're doing and we plan for the next day. Talk about who needs the car (we only have 1 and a scooter), and talk through our days so we're on the same page. Kyle just tells me what his work plans are and I just think through what I'm going to be doing throughout the day. We also pick up all of Maddox's toys and do some general straightening.

Today would have gotten off to great start if I hadn't been losing my mind at 6am this morning thinking my alarm clock was trying to attack me. I accidentally ended up turning it off (I was supposed to be up at 6:30), I don't know what got into me.

So, I woke up 1 1/2 hours behind schedule, but I'm trying my darndest to get back on it. This new schedule is also honing in my computer time. I spend WAY too much time on the computer, so I've blocked myself 2, 1/2 hour sessions to blog, etc.

Any way, here's to an awesome day!

yay! It feels good to have a plan, huh?

I'll be praying for you as you start to free yourself from the mess. It's so overwhelming at first. And I think the Enemy wants to keep us living like that because there is so much freedom in living an organized and clutter free life.

Love you! Can't wait to hang out in a month (hopefully!)

Good for you! I really need to shorten my computer time as well. It can be consuming, and when I've spent a lot of time on it, I always feel like I totally wasted my day.
