Momentous Monday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Let’s have a Momentous Monday and enjoy the moments with our families. Sometimes we get so caught up with our To Do Lists, calendars, appointments, doing school, taking care of our homes, and doing for others that we forget to take time to enjoy the moment with our family. Often we can be in the same room with them, but we are not engaged in what is going on with our family. In our technology-driven world, we get caught up in other things. So today I want you to sit down with your family and enjoy the moment with them. You can talk, play, listen to music, sing, dance, laugh, and connect with one another. As the Holidays get closer, be mindful of your pace and the pace you set for you family. Be sure to include times where you are purposeful about being in the moment with them.

In case you have not downloaded it, here is the link to my Holiday e-book. You are not behind. Just start where you are.

Holiday Missions.

It has helpful pages for you to do your menu planning, grocery lists, gift lists, and a daily calendar for November, December, and January. I will also put the daily tips in my newsletter and on the blog. The e-book will just help you see the whole picture and give you forms to use.

Holiday Mission – Monday – Put out fall towels and a fall candle in your main bathroom. Work on a craft project with your children. I have seen so many cute ideas on Pinterest.

Now let’s move on to our daily missions this week:

This week we are in Zone 3 – Main Bathroom and One Extra Room.

Monday – Deep clean the tub and shower

Tuesday – Declutter your bathroom counter and drawers

Wednesday – Wipe down your fixtures and baseboards in your main bathroom
