I've decided that it's time to buckle down and get a weekly routine going. It just seems that the days and weeks go by and I feel I've accomplished nothing. My new plan inadvertently started on Monday when I spent the afternoon cleaning the main floor while Nico was at school. He is in preschool 3 afternoons a week so I've decided I will schedule these times with regular activities and tasks. So my afternoons will look like this...
Mondays - alternate cleaning main floor and top floor each week; laundry
Wednesdays - run errands; grocery shop
Fridays - odd jobs such as organizing closets, pantry, mudroom, etc.
Tuesdays and Thursdays like this...
Tuesdays - Nico is with grandma all day so I usually spend the day doing things I enjoy like blogging, emailing, scrapbooking, etc.
Thursdays - babysitting co-op with my sister-in-laws; there are five children (ages 4 yrs, 2yrs, 7m, 6m, 5m) between the three of us so two of us watch the kids and the third gets an alone day.
I am also going to try and get a walk in everyday until the weather becomes unbearable. We are enjoying an incredible "Indian" summer here in Calgary with record-breaking temperatures!
Wish me luck. I am not very good at follow-thru but I am committed!
