Laundry is truly never ending. I think I am finally accepting that it is never, completely done. Instead of fighting it, I am learning how to manage it. After our break of routine during spring break, I am getting back to it. I am sharing today our system that has been working for several months now, products we use and why it works for us. And also how the kids help out.
What is the definition of a break? It is different for everyone and based on who you talk to, it can vary. It also varies based on the environment, a workplace, at home, school, etc. For everyone though, a break is in essence a time away from some thing. The question is, what is that thing?
So it was my birthday week this past week. What a year! On my 30th birthday, I was still wondering if we would ever have kids. Mid-thirties, this blog was born and shortly after so was baby #3. And now late-ish (lol) thirties I am homeschooling, enjoying this blog (a little more consistently) and learning even more about myself through Jesus every day. This is how the journey started and what I would like to share with you here.
We are only two months in, but 2019 has come in with a bang for our family. Getting back into a routine has been difficult, but somehow, some way a meal plan was made on Sunday and so far it has been followed.....for the most part.
Those Monday mornings when you wake up and just want to stay in bed.....that would be the start of this week. The crankiness, the exhaustion, the lack of motivation, and that was just from me - not even touching the kids’ attitudes. Enter faith, community and a whole lot of Jesus.
It's Friday! Who else feels frumpy today? Just me? Oh good. ;) Despite it being a fairly quick week - it was a little hectic and I was not in the mood to anything today. I didn't want to get out of bed. I didn't want to make breakfast. I just didn't want to start the day. That doesn't really fly with three kiddos five and under. It was a crazy week, which is normal, but making the most out of the early morning time before kiddos get up can make all the difference.
I will be honest, I am not very good at meal planning. Maybe that is why I despise it. The week always goes ten times better when I at least have a guideline though. I have searched and attempted to use countless meal planning printables and apps. We cook ahead food at one time for leftovers and so far, nothing has worked except for something I drew out on plain paper one Sunday night.
Why do we feel like everything has to be perfectly in place before we start a project? Or that we have to follow a specific set of guidelines to get meaning out of an activity? Maybe the lesson comes from the messiness and the journey.
Please check back often as I am adding or modifying pages as time permits.
Scripture/Quote of the Week:
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
