Getting Organized

I have been needing to get scheduled and organized for a long time. Jason has been trying to get me to set up a daily schedule for a while now. He knows it will help, I know it will help. But I drag my feet. Why???? Because I am a little weird. I thrive on organization, stability and schedules. However - I hate to actually write it down and tie myself down to it. Forget that I am an adult and can change it if needed, and otherwise stick to it and see if it would help. Oh dear...

So, I took the plunge. Jason sat down with me and helped me write out a daily schedule to follow (but change if needed :)) I have only been doing it for two days but let me tell you it's been great! I have been getting SO much accomplished, spending more time with kids, getting my Bible study and work out done and feeling great (really tired but great) at the end of the day. I think it's going to be a blessing in my life and I am thankful for a smart husband to encourage me when I need it! So here's the schedule:

7:00 - wake up
7:00 - 7:45 - Bible Reading
7:45 - 8:15 - Work Out
8:15 - 8:30 - Shower (get ready throughout the morning)
8:30 - 9:00 - Kids up, drink milk get going for the day
9:00- 10:00 - Breakfast and clean up
10:00-11:00 - "School Time" ( We are taking time to learn colors, letters and shapes. Color, play with playdough ect...)
11:00 - 12:00 - Kids play Mom cleans
12:00 - 12:30 - Lunch time
12:30 - 1:00 - Get ready for naps
1:00 - 3:00 - NAP TIME!!! :)
3:00- 3:30 - Snacks
3:30 - 4:30 - Play, clean, catch up on stuff
4:30 - 5:30 - Make dinner
5:30 - 6:00 - Kids quiet time - mom quiet time
6:00 - 6:30 - Dinner Time
7:00 - 7:30 - Family Bible and prayer time

Whew...So that's our day! It's been working out great with lots of flexibility. We'll see how it goes!
