Ok, so it has been way too long since I have put up a post and a lot has happpened. Today, I vow to start a new life philosophy... make use of every moment and take time to enjoy! So, being that I have 15 minutes before I have to walk out the door I am using it!
I have officially been done working for 18 days. I am not sure what all I have accomplished. Well wait, I have paid bills on time, made a few more home cooked meals and spent more time with the kiddos. But visually everything around me is out of control! Small piles of this here, shoes all around my house, laundry scattered there, and dishes that appear from no where... AHHHH!
Yesterday I came home from subbing for lunch and was amazed what I got accomplished in 75 minutes. I made a hotdish for dinner, baked lemon muffins, made a few phone calls, did a load and a half of laundry, washed dishes, picked up the toys and books from the morning, and made my 4th cup of coffee. When I got home later it felt so good to walk into a "tidy" house with supper ready to roll.
The best part was that it just takes effort and a bit of strategic planning. So, I am thinking that on days when I have my munchkins running around all of these tasks will be accomplished while they play outside or take naps. I have learned that when they are awake and inside that everything gets undone faster than I can do it!
Anyway, here's to taking advantage and making every moment count so that we have time to enjoy the good stuff!
