I have closets that need to be sorted through. There are clothes that need to be given to Goodwill, clothes that need to be rotated from one kiddo to the next, and probably some clothes that should be thrown away. You should see my recliner in the master bedroom. Well, I'd really rather you not see it, but just imagine the piles of clothes on it along with the cedar chest. *sigh* It's bad. It's full of clothes that don't have hangers because there aren't any more to go around. I refuse to buy more until I weed out the ones we no longer need. Oh and I also have a tote of regular clothes that have been thrown in there to make room for the maternity clothes that I will wear this summer and also maternity clothes that have to be given away because they're so out of date or I'm just tired of looking at the same striped shirt for the 8th pregnancy. Seriously!
As I type this the desk is a war zone. I have some workbooks to score and grades to enter in the computer before I can officially say a few kiddos are done for the summer. I have a few kiddos who are taking a bit longer to be done with their schooling so I have score keys, books, folders, etc. making their home on the desk. I also share this large desk with hubby who has papers to grade and exams to score. Along with a gob of church books, VBS material, etc., etc., taking space on the desk that could be oh so lovely.
Yes, I'm just venting. No, I don't expect life to be perfect. I'm just asking for a "do over" in a few areas of life and I'm hoping to achieve them this summer.
So...back at the ranch (I had a highschool teacher who would say that when things got off topic)...I plan to begin my "do over" with better time management. I've strayed from my many plans. I'm printing out the next month's worth of the Motivate Moms calendar. You can read a post about it HERE, along with another wonderful time management system.
Like I always say..."It's good to have a goal!" Right?
