I've fallen off my routine in the last several months, and I don't like the feeling of wandering around the house aimlessly, wondering what I should do, and then remembering later, when it's too late, all the pressing things I should have been doing.
I've been living like I'm in survival mode, but the truth is that Tiger Lily isn't a baby anymore: she's three years old and potty trained. I usually don't have to get up more than once a night with her (she screams in her sleep a lot), and some nights she doesn't wake me up at all. What I'm getting at is that there's no reason for me to be living in survival mode anymore. There's not even an excuse for me to be sleeping in or napping most days. Things are pretty easy for me at the moment.
With all this in mind, I sat down Sunday and wrote myself a housework schedule. I've done this before, and the schedule I came up with looked very similar to past schedules I've made (I don't know why, but I really like doing bedrooms on Monday).
To aid my transformation, I'm also participating in Crystal's early to rise challenge. I can't tell you how much easier it is to get up in the morning when I know what I'm going to be doing that day! What's more, I can get started earlier.
This is all going to be very good for me.
Do you have a housework schedule? How does it work out for you? Any tips?
