I really like how Candy has her daily routines and to dos posted on her blog. I got an idea about how to simplify things in my binder so I don't have to keep flipping pages all over. I thought I would put all cleaning, meals, daily work etc. on one page for each day of the week.
Monday- To Do's
clean all appliances, stove/oven and fridge
wash bedding laundry
strain and make new kombucha brew
Bible study with girls-15 minutes or so
Brain Gym with Leiah- basic exercises
exercise- Jiggle Free Abs tape, 25 minutes
I shower and tweeze eyebrows :)
Kids' Cleaning Chores:
L- wipe down fridge and oven door, also tidy room, make bed, table chores
A- wipe down dishwasher and washer/dryer, room chores and table chores, feed pets
S- at sink, wash it, help with bedroom and toys pick up and assisting me
Meals- quick and easy- usually ground beef based such as: beef and rice, spaghetti, sloppy joes, tacos, chili et. Breakfast is usually scrambled eggs and toast, Lunch is sandwiches and fruit
My master schedule, well, i don't know how to post an excel spreadsheet. I broke it up and blocks rather than specific times. I decided that the easiest thing to do to ensure most everything got done each day was to get up early. So, from 5-7am I do my cleaning chores so that during the kid's chore time I can help them without getting distracted. So far I've only been able to get up at 5:30-5:45, but we've had guests and been up later than expected.
I'll have to include my routines and such another time- I am out of computer time for now.
Today I went to get groceries, and got tied up on the computer with some bills this morning, so we haven't done Bible, Brain Gym or exercise etc. Sarah was very cranky when we got home and I put her in the playpen for trying to hit me (!) and she ended up falling asleep. The other two ate lunch while I put groceries away and then I let them watch a movie we just rented. Now Leiah is asleep on the couch an Alexa will be going to her room for a nap/rest time in a bit, which means Sarah may be up before they are that will throw me off. OH well. In the mean time I have clothes to fold and more to wash, bread to bake (in bread machine), buttermilk to make and kefir to strain, make 2 gallons of koolaid (yes I allow it once a week or two) and finish cleaning my bathroom. However I don't have to cook dinner because what I cooked yesterday didn't get eaten- we ate out instead. We will probably go outside at some point and get in the pool to cool off- yes even with central air it can sure get hot in here!
Gotta GO! But there it is and I think it will work. So far it seems to flow well with our lives. It is just a guide however and I certainly need one :)
