Pampering Yourself this Month

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
Happy first week of December. First, I want you to take a deep breath and relax. My prayer for you and your family is that you will have a wonderful month and no anxiety about your home and your schedule.
If you have too much on your calendar, you can always take some things off of the calendar. Enjoy your Holiday preparations and make memories with your family. These memories do not have to include every single Holiday event you see or are invited to do.
Your Habit of the Month is to Pamper Yourself. Remember that as you schedule in some quiet time for yourself.
Here are you missions for the week:
Zone 1 Missions: The Front Porch, Entryway, and Dining Room
Monday – Declutter items from the Front Porch and add Holiday decorations
Tuesday – Declutter the Entryway
Wednesday – Wipe Windows, Mirrors, Light Switches, and Door Knobs
Thursday – Dust the Dining Room
Friday – Declutter for 15 minutes in Zone 1
Set your timers for 15 minutes and then take a break when it goes off!
Here is an assignment for you today.
Sit down for 15 minutes today with your favorite beverage and your notebook. Write down some of the things you like to do to pamper yourself. I want you to try to write down 30 things, but if you can’t think of that many, I want you to write down as many as you can.
Each day, I want you to pick one thing on this list to do to pamper yourself.
Ladies, we take care of everyone around us, and we put our relaxing time off. Some of you are at a point where you are doing good to come up with 10 things to do to pamper yourself. Once you have your list, you are welcome to share it with me!

If you need some ideas, here is a link to The FlyLady’s page on Pampering Yourself. There are all kinds of ideas on her site.

You can share some of your ideas, and I will share them with the other readers.
Some of my favorite relaxing things to do are: reading, sewing, doing crafts, listening to music, soaking in the tub, going for a walk, talking to a friend, having a quiet dessert with my husband, sitting by the fireplace on a winter evening, drawing, coloring, painting, watching a Christmas movie, journaling, getting my nails done, doing a facial at home, doing a puzzle, playing a game with the boys, and hanging with my girlfriends.
That’s my list just off the top of my head. I need a few more to make it a list of 30 things for the month, but I think this is a good start.
Start thinking and writing stuff down!
Weekly Menu Plan
Monday – Chicken
Tuesday – Chicken and Rice Casserole
Wednesday – Lasagna
Thursday – Pizza for the boys
Friday – Take Out
Enjoy your week! Keep your routines simple.
Here’s your recap of the Weekly Zone Missions.
On Monday, take a look at the Front Porch. Toss anything that needs to go from your fall decorations. Put out your Christmas decorations on the porch.
On Tuesday, declutter in the Entryway. How many pairs of shoes did you find?
On Wednesday, wipe the windows, mirrors, walls, light switches, and door knobs in the Dining Room.
On Thursday, dust the Dining Room. If you have decorations to put out, spend a few minutes doing that, too.
On Friday, declutter for 15 minutes anywhere in Zone 1. If you have any more decorations to put out, do that as well.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.
Your Zone Mission for Monday is declutter items from the Front Porch.
My menu plan for Monday is chicken with a salad.
Have a blessed day!
