Our weekly plan has been successful. Neither of the kids argued about their particular responsibilities for that day. They got in there and did them and all were happy, including mom. Yeah!!!
The family schedule is another story. Did I mention how laid back and S.L.O.W. my husband and children are? Well they are. One morning this week, Carson was still in pajamas at 7:20...we need to leave at 7:30. You can imagine the response I gave when I realized this. Not one of my better mom moments. I just don't understand how the kids and I can get up at the same time...I take a bath, fix hair, make-up and get Cydney ready in the same amount of time it takes them to eat breakfast, get dressed, and feed their animals. Someone please help me understand this!! So, yes, our schedule is still a work in progress. I am determined to make mornings happier at our house, and continuing to improve on our schedule is a way to do it.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God
has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
Now, I don't believe that the calling God has placed on me is to completely organize my home, but I do believe that we will be rewarded with happy hearts when our home and schedule are more organized.
So press on we will.
