Finish It Up Friday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Happy Friday!

Check your To Do list. Use your timer to complete the items on your list. Keep it short and make it fun! Don’t look at your list as drudgery. Look at it as a way to bless your family. If you are overloading yourself, then drop things that can wait until next week. Your main goals are to have the house picked up, the laundry caught up, the sink shiny, and your children happy. If you have too many things to do and are grumpy, you can change that. Start with letting go of your perfectionism. Just do the best you can do.

Have a great week-end and a very Merry Christmas!

If you have any questions or tips, please email me. I enjoy hearing from my readers.
