SPF: Lists

It's Friday and that means I don't have to think about my own fluff to blog about because Kristine is back. This week we were supposed to show you our "To Do Lists."

All of my lists are in my handy dandy control journal. It is broken up into different sections of things I need to make my little world function. I pretty much do the same thing every day, so it really made since to me. I am a born organized person, but this helped me to realize that you can't organize clutter. Slowly but surely I am not living in CHAOS (Can't Have Any One Over Syndrome). My home is not always completely picked up....I have two toddlers! But it is never more than 15 minutes from clean. The kids are learning simple routines and that things have a home. A babysitter can ask them where the dinosaurs go, and both could show you where they go.

The MORNING ROUTINE helps get us out the door by 8AM.
The AFTERNOON ROUTINE is actually pretty much tying up loose ends of things I started in the morning.
Finally the BEFORE BED ROUTINE is the most important one of all to me! I do as much I can after the kids are in bed so that I can push that snooze button if I really want to!! Finally, I do a daily TO DO list of the things that aren't on my routines. Today's to do list consists mainly of stuff I need to do to get ready for Husband to come home! Whew hoo, just a few more days!! I need to stock up on real food vs kid food. I don't think mac and cheese, hotdogs, peanut butter and jelly are going to cut it for someone who hasn't had a home cooked meal since Oct!
happy Friday, y'all!!
