Are you ready for Christmas?

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Dear Friends,
It’s the week before Christmas! For some of you, it is Hanukkah. I hope you have a wonderful week and blessed Holiday season! This week, I will be finishing up some things around my house, so I can enjoy my husband’s week off next week without any big projects.
This week we are decluttering and detail cleaning in the Master Bedroom. If you have children at home, give them some missions, too!
Zone 3 Missions: The Master Bedroom

Monday – Declutter flat surfaces and dust
Tuesday – Put away all of your laundry
Wednesday – Clean out the stuff that does not belong in your closet
Thursday – Declutter items from one dresser drawer
Friday – Clean out under your bed
The Habit of the Month is Pampering Yourself. How are you doing with this habit? You need to take care of yourself, and you need to reward yourself, too. Pushing too hard, not sleeping well or enough, not eating well, not drinking adequate water, or not exercising all can lead to health issues.
Several years ago, I made the decision to take care of myself because I had allowed myself to get run down and burned out. I had to say, “No” to some things. I had to make it a priority to eat healthy and exercise. Looking back, I am healthier now than I was 10 years ago.
It is not wrong to put your health as a priority. You should not feel guilty if you are taking time to take care of yourself. I have found it easiest to exercise first thing in the morning before the boys are awake. When I had little ones in the house, I would get up early and do an exercise DVD in the Living Room. Now, I have teenagers, and I am able to run or go to the gym.
What do you do to take care of yourself?
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter the flat surfaces in your bedroom and detail dust.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash sheets.
My menu plan for Monday is beef roast and vegetables.

Have a great day!
