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?
Have a happy week.
