Focus on One Thing

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
Happy Anti-Procrastination Day! We are coming close to the end of the month, and we have today and tomorrow for our missions in the Living Room. Use your timer and write down one thing you would like to work on that you have been putting off.
Writing things down on paper helps you keep your focus. You can write it on a sticky note, on a piece of paper, on your calendar, on a white board, on a chalk board, or really anything that puts it in front of you.
The act of writing it down also puts it in your head in a different way. It helps you more than you think, but the key is to not have a lot of things on the list. That’s why I said to just write one down. In your perfectionism, you want to write 10 things down.
The goal I have for you is to help you establish the habits of decluttering, detail cleaning a little at a time, and doing your home blessings. When you get these firmly in place, caring for your home is a breeze.
Then you have more time for the fun stuff with your family. Teaching your children these habits are important life skills that they need. So many young adults go to college and move out with few skills.
You want to teach them a variety of skills around the house — no matter if you have boys or girls or both. In my home, everyone knows how to cook, do dishes, wash clothes and move them to the dryer and put away. They also know how to do routine maintenance inside the house and outside.
If you do not have a control journal to help you keep track of home care, I encourage you to look at them on the FlyLady’s site. They really do help you keep track of things. She has both a printed version and a digital version.
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter items that you do not need in the Living Room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is soup, sandwiches, and a salad.
Have a blessed day!
