In your home and homeschool
Do you ever have a day or a week where you seem to deal with a lot of curve balls? You will find peace in doing daily routines. You need to do them consistently, so they become a habit.
When I talk to ladies who are frustrated or stressed out, many times they admit to me that they struggle with their daily routines. They have many excuses for why they do not get through their basic routines, but I want to tell you from my experience is that the daily routines are what give you peace.
Start today with your basic evening routine. Check your calendar for tomorrow, shine your kitchen sink, lay out your clothes, put things at the launch pad, wash your face, brush your teeth, and go to bed at a decent hour.
When my day has been busy, I find peace in my evening routine. I start it right after dinner. While the boys are clearing the table and washing dishes, I will check the calendar and my weather app. Then I gather my clothes and lay them out. I will also do a few minutes of decluttering and deal with my kitchen hot spots. I start to feel the peace that comes with the decluttering and in doing my routines.
In the morning, you need to nail down your routine. I know your children interrupt you, and that is why you need to get up before your children and do your routine as soon as you get out of bed. Last week, one of the boys was sick during the night. We had a rough start to the morning. My morning routine had many interruptions, but I still finished it. I was reminded of how it used to be for me when I had toddlers and preschoolers. It can take a while to do your morning routine if you are trying to do after the children are up in the mornings, so set your alarm for at least 15 minutes before the children normally get up.
Be intentional in doing your daily routines. Keep them short and simple. I want you to have peace in your day, too.
Today’s Zone Mission is to clean under the living room furniture. Be sure to enlist help.
Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is chicken for the guys and veggies for me.
