I'm kind of a freak when it comes to certain things.... like lists. I really like to be organized but most of the time I'm not. Lists help me with this. Jon makes fun of me and says that I always make lists but never look at them. Well, sometimes even writing it down helps me to sort things out in my crazy brain.
One of the things I've been struggling with lately is managing my time. I seriously have no clue how I had time to work and be a mommy. Both Jon and I can't seem to figure out where my time has been disapearing to. Well.... I mean.... I spend too much time on Facebook (working on that!) but sometimes it feels like my time just disapears into thin air. This leaves a TON of things left undone and me feeling frustrated and cranky. No bueno.
So, here's what I did: I made a list! Three lists to be exact. One for the things that I need to do. One for the things I have to do (no, it's not the same thing), and one for the things I want to do. Then I pulled out my calendar for the week. I love this calendar it even has a mobile app for Androids that allows me to share all the things we have to do as a family with my husband. It is amazing. Anyway, I took the lists and added the things I HAVE to do (like take Zoey to school, Girl Scouts, Young Womens, Scripture Study, etc)first. Then I put in the things that I need to do (like laundry and cleaning out the garage). Next, I put in the things that I WANT to do (like having dinner with friends, reading, and watching my shows). I found a TON of free time! I'm so excited to see how this works out. Hopefully this will help me to get more things done. I'll keep you posted!
