Make your home a haven...
- Make hubby's breakfast & feed dog (they don't get the same breakfast!)
- Make a cup of green tea
- Quiet time
- News (10-15 min). I like to start the day knowing what is going on out there.
Once LM is up things start to move quickly. I usually eat breakfast with her but on school days when my friend E drives the kids to school & I have nowhere to go first thing I will sit with her while she eats and then eat breakfast by myself - that's kind of my quiet time on those days.
Planning- I got this wonderful new dry erase planner the other day. It has all of our names plus a place for family plans and dinner down the side and each day of the week across the top. It is perfect for us and I am loving having one place to write down every one's plans. I have tried many different ways to keep up with our activities but haven't really liked anything. So far so good on this. I have always been one to plan my next day the night before. I am a planner and like to know what I have going on as far in advance as possible.
My plan for this week is to work on my morning routine and see if I can keep it going once school starts next week.
Today I have the following planned:
Breakfast - hopefully outside if it's cool enough.
Scrapbooking @ my friend H's house. LM is coming too and we're taking a field trip to Michael's! I am glad she is old enough to enjoy doing this with us.
Organizing playroom (we sold the TV that was in there last night so I need to do some rearranging)
Quiet time for LM and some computer work for me - pay bills etc.
Dad is home at 4:30 and time to make dinner (pollo asada, salad, corn)
I'll be back and let you know how much I accomplished...
