a new day

and the beginning of a new week.


With 2 weeks left before school starts I think it’s time to slowly get my kids back into a routine.  no more late nights, maybe waking a little earlier than we have been in the mornings and reading a little longer in the evenings.

And not just for the kids.

It’s also time for me to make a schedule for myself.

I’ve started today with some unpacking.  And just some general clearing up of stuff.  Lots of ‘stuff’ to clear up actually  Lately I’ve been reading about trying to keep things simple – it’s a very general term I know,  but that’s where I want to be – simple.  to live simply and to not be surrounded by stuff.  unnecessary stuff.  I have a long way to go but I’m going to start somewhere and now just seems like the right time.

I also know it’s not going to be a one time clearing and then I’m done deal.  It’s going to be a journey. how the journey goes,  I don’t know but I’m determined to get there.  I don’t even know what ‘there’ will look like, or how I’m going to feel at the end of this process.  But we’ll see.

I’m trying to put my plan together – which rooms go first.  what gets kept and passed on and what gets given away and thrown away!!.  I’m going to do this.

Anyway how about you.  How do you feel about schedules and routines – do you make “to do lists” and follow schedules?  or are you the spontaneous kind of person?

do share……

Have a happy week.

i'm not a list person, but i do prioritize things that have to get done, and in what order, even though priorities shift all the time!

I'm definitely a list person, though it's more of a loose reminder than a strict schedule for me. I admire your goal of simplifying and hope it works out for you!

Hi!!! I have been meaning to email you. But it has been a busy summer. Even though I'm not on Facebook, I hear about leaving your girl. Ugh...
I'm so nervous about leaving mine, though I know he will be fine.
So much to catch up on my friend. See you in September...
And yes, I like lists and order and pitching/giving away/finding a new home for many pieces of "stuff" I've collected over the years!

See you in early September!
