I’ve really been looking forward to getting both the kids back to school but not necessarily for the reason you might think. I need to get some kind of routine back into this house.
Don’t get me wrong, The Summer of Mommyland has been a blast. The adventures the boys and I went on and the memories we made are worth the disaster area my house has become. Letting my chores go undone to have fun with my boys was one of the smartest things I’ve ever done.
With that said, it’s time to get things in order again. For my sanity’s sake.
I do really well when I can check things off and by doing a little bit everyday I never feel overwhelmed by the house work that needs to get done.
I had stumbled across a great iPad app that I used before to make sure I was getting it all done and I’ve dusted it off and started using it again.
Last week I started getting my daily chores finished each day. First of all I started to feel more relaxed knowing that things were starting to come back together. Then as the week progressed I noticed that it was easier to get things done, I was actually excited to see the house looking neat and tidy again.
Doing well so far this week!
I’m hoping that by the end of next week I have this place running like a well oiled machine again.
Do you need to get things back in order after the summer? How do you ease yourself back into the routine?
