How We Schedule Our Days

Schedule? Did I hear someone say "schedule"? Ah! What a wonderful word.....

I like to think of myself as an organized person. I adore lists. I make 'em all the time. For everything. Somehow, even if I never accomplish half of the items on that list I feel better just for making it. :) I even made a schedule. A really great schedule, planning out my day to a T and leaving a little room for the unexpected things that pop up in a normal day.

One of these days I'll start following that schedule.

In the meantime, we're following the "do the next thing" We get up, eat breakfast, get ready for the day, do some school work, eat lunch, do some more school work, eat dinner, clean up, and so on and so forth. No set time for anything...just doing the next thing. It works, but it's not what I want. And that was before our little winter break. Our company just left two days ago, so we're not back to even that much of a "schedule"! (Bows head in shame....) As you know, I homeschool our children, and right now we're rather behind. I've got the "January Panic"!

My husband, at the ripe ol' age of 34, started college classes last week. (I'm so proud of him!) With his classes and homework we are forced to get back to a regular schedule, which will be good for all of us. It will probably be a combination of my dream schedule and the "do the next thing" routine. I don't want to be too rigid, because I know I'd tend to get a knot in my tummy if we didn't stick to the clock, and then I'd stress all of us out. I'll let you know how it works out.... :)

Now you can go see how these ladies schedule their days. (And they really do! :))

  1. I'm the same way! I always make lists and need them. :-)

    I am so torn about a schedule, as well. I don't want it to be so "school" like, where if it's 9:37, we must be on math, lol, but I think we need some kind of guideline. Maybe we can inspire each other to find a happy medium!

    Good for your husband in going back to school. I will keep him in my prayers!

    Many blessings,

  2. Inspire each other...that's a great idea! :) I think you're already way ahead of me, though.

    Thank you for praying for my husband!
