well, routines are starting to emerge more...getting up at 7, getting dressed and eating something. Then taking the big kids to school. Home & baby goes into his bed for his morning nap and while he's napping, I have been doing a few things around the house. Yesterday it was computer work. Today it's laundry. What's funny to me is that I am starting to see a routine emerge that is very similar to the routine I had when the big kids were little and I was a stay-at-home mom! Guess that routine worked for me - it is a routine that I have greatly missed these last few years!

Anyway, list for today is as follows (and I am putting the things I have already done so I can see what I have done!)...
  • Up & dressed
  • wake kids
  • breakfast
  • feed baby
  • put garbage/recycling at end of driveway
  • take big kids to school
  • call dad about hockey game tonight
  • put garbage/recycling cans back in their "home"
  • strip bedding from our bed
  • move washed clothes to dryer
  • wash bedding
  • dry bedding
  • replace bedding on bed
  • wash clothes
  • fold clothes (load 1, load 2)
  • put away clothes (load 1, load 2, load 3 - from yesterday)
  • pick up hockey game tickets
  • clear off living room table
  • sort out my cart & put away
  • feed baby as needed (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
  • nap
  • pick up big kids from school
  • cook dinner
  • stamp??? (if time)
There we have it! I've started folding the load of laundry that was dried this morning but I need to finish it before Little Man wakes up and wants to eat. I want to get that done and the cart thing done before he wakes up. So off I go!!!!

I visited but I didn't post anything so mine did not auto-subscribe. ARG! I'm just being lazy and not going back through the thread from last month and finding the posts. Thanks though.

It took me a while to get to the point where I would enter it on my spread sheet on a monthly basis, but I have my expenses all entered through December 2012 so I am proud of myself this year.
Thanks for the idea. Several years ago I decided I was going to get more organized in that area and bought some expandable folders (you the kind with the flap that hooks and in pretty designs - thank goodness for the Dollar Store) and labeled each with different things and the dividers are labeled as well. The problem is I just never took the time to put everything in there. I divided it into money, house & something else (I can't even remember now). It is a good system for me if I'd just use it so I'm planning to CHANGE (that is my word for the year) how I do things and actually use it. I have for years put everything in a basket in my pantry so I knew where everything was & had it all together, but this year I'm going to make it easier for me for next year. One day I might even get to the point of entering it into a spreadsheet like you have. You are the bomb!

Need to prep for the babies belated birthday tomorrow. She turned two on Monday but hubby was out of town so we are celebrating tomorrow. Small doings.

Better get off on my day. Have a good one everyone. Look forward to getting to "know" you.
Welcome!!! Glad to have you with us. I'm fairly new myself and they said 'just jump right in' and I did. So I'll say the same to you - Just jump right in and have fun.

Jocelyn ~ glad the routine is beginning to take shape for you. It is more difficult when you have little ones.

It's especially hard when you're transitioning from being a working mom (worked full time until the end of August) then a mom on medical leave and very restricted in terms of activities (as in I could do nothing around the house and limited outside in terms of errands etc - basically only went to midwife, massage and physio appointments during the week and church on Sundays until end of November) and now a mom of preteens and a newborn (well, he's a month old now). So I'm transitioning from not being able to do anything to taking back slowly the household responsibility. My stamina and stuff is still not where it needs to be and the reason for the medical leave is still an issue (a very unstable pelvis that causes me lots of pain and discomfort...it's getting better but I need to still be careful). But it's coming, slowly and surely. And even if all I can do is a little bit it's still more than I could do before! At least I am getting energy back!

Well it's a good thing I am flexible with my time and schedule!! Little Man woke up around 10:30 and wanted to eat...and then cuddle...and then fuss...and now he's happy in his bouncy chair. In the meantime, we went downstairs to grab the sheets for my bed and I realized that I hadn't shut the dryer door all the way so when I hit the button to turn it on, it never turned on! OOPS!! Oh well! Just means no nap until later this afternoon!

I spent 15 minutes decluttering a room/closet upstairs. Took out a big bag of stuff to donate, a half bag of trash, a new wool blanket we can use downstairs, and I found an old paper cutter that will be perfect to keep at my desk.

That room up there can use hours but it is a start. Felt good to get my challenge done for today. Off to put a star on the calendar.

Baby steps!! Isn't it amazing how much you can get done in 15 minutes?? I'm setting my timer now to tackle my cart that has sat beside "my chair" for the last 3 months. Time to clear it off and move it to a different part of the house!

I'll be telling my DD she has to set her timer for 15 minutes after school and tackle the clothes on her floor. I think I might go take a picture of them....it's incredible the mess she has in there!! I don't think she even remembers what her floor looks like!!!

Taking a break for a few minutes before I tackle my cart. I'm feeling like I need to take a nap now but our sheets are still in the dryer so my bed is unmade. I can't nap unless it's in bed under the covers! So cart it is!

Dfil out of surgery. Ended up with a triple bypass. They say he did really well.
Now for the long arduous recovery.

We're going to run to Target and get a couple of things and, frankly, just get out of the house.

So I'm transitioning from not being able to do anything to taking back slowly the household responsibility. My stamina and stuff is still not where it needs to be and the reason for the medical leave is still an issue (a very unstable pelvis that causes me lots of pain and discomfort...it's getting better but I need to still be careful). But it's coming, slowly and surely. And even if all I can do is a little bit it's still more than I could do before! At least I am getting energy back!
WOW you've really had a difficult 3 months. Glad you're beginning to do more each day.

That room up there can use hours but it is a start. Felt good to get my challenge done for today. Off to put a star on the calendar.
Way to Go!!! As someone else said, it's funny what can be done in 15 short minutes when you're focused for those 15 minutes. It's easy, if distracted by someone, to say "Just give me 15 minutes and I'll be all your's"

Thanks Cher. Why didn't I think about this before? What a goober I can be sometimes.

Glad dfil did so well with his surgery. I know the recovery will be slow but still he seems to be in really good shape for the shape he's in. Still praying for you all until he's back on the golf course again.

The problem is I just never took the time to put everything in there. I divided it into money, house & something else (I can't even remember now). It is a good system for me if I'd just use it so I'm planning to CHANGE (that is my word for the year) how I do things and actually use it. I have for years put everything in a basket in my pantry so I knew where everything was & had it all together, but this year I'm going to make it easier for me for next year. One day I might even get to the point of entering it into a spreadsheet like you have. You are the bomb!
you sound like me, i started with a basket, then i moved to the system you are telling, the one with folded over flap with elastic. I found while it was a good "idea" it didn't fit into my "if it ain't easy it don't git done" habits. So the folder on my desk that i can just flip right to the month and drop it in, WORKS for me. sometimes they sit on top of the blue folder for a bit but they are there asking me to please put them in their home.

Update!

I'm feeling spry today so let's see what all I can get done

Up, dressed
make bed
eat breakfast

OK got all those done already. What else?

take allergy meds - done
read my inspirational reading - done
wash dishes - done x 2 (I actually cooked again tonight)
wash, etc a load of clothes - done

sweep floors - 1/2 done
clear off counters - done
begin sort of tax information (this year I'm going to do better with it and sort each month - of course you know I say that every year) - working on them
chiropractor appt at 10:15 with dd1 & dgds (dd1 & I schedule ours together so she has help with the girls) - done


So I'm going to finish the floors and save the tax fun stuff for another day. I need to work on the CRC stuff a bit more than I have the rest of the week.

Tomorrow I will be teaching a CPR class for CNA students 8:30 - 12:30 or so then I'll be back to post the fun things I'll be doing tomorrow

thanks Cher, I didn't know that! Glad to hear DFIL is out of surgery and doing well, yes, recovery comes a bit more slowly at his age but it's amazing how the body heals. did they do this by robotic?

No, old fashioned hands on way. but he's motivated to do what it takes to recover because he and his lady friend have tickets to go to Ireland and Italy over Easter. Doctor said its possible if all goes well.

Kids had to take CPR before they would release Zack from hospital. So we took it with them.

As a paramedic I've seen it work and I've seen it not work but it is always good to have the knowledge. It's better to try to do something than to do nothing at all. I certified dd1 & dsil before Buddy came home as well.

Also, glad dfil has a motivation for getting better. Ireland and Italy oh man sign me up. Those are 2 of the placed I'd love to go.

I think my steam has run out a bit tonight. The bed seems to be calling me in a large way.

I did finish the floors and worked a bit on the CRC stuff but I think I'm going to go to the bedroom and see if I can finish reading or make a dent in the last 100 or so pages in a book I've been reading at for a while. (I get to read while riding in the car with dh, he scares me sometimes so I keep my mind busy elsewhere, while sitting on the potty or while taking a soaky bath so it takes me a while to read a book)

I hope you all have a great tomorrow. Nighty night. Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite. Later taters!

Good morning! Just a quick flyby to say Happy Ground Hog's Day. You know if he sees his shadow we will have 6 more weeks of winter. I think if you look at your calendar you'll see eitherway we'll still have 6 more weeks of winter. LOL Really I think it is based on how mild the rest of the winter will be. I just wish it would make up it's mind how it's going to be. Yesterday was 33F, today 42F, Tuesday 55F. Right now it's 16F and I'm going to have to be out of the house in about 30 mins to head to the college for the CPR class. Just in case I haven't said it before I REALLY DISLIKE COLD WEATHER!

Still Good Saturday Morning - If you're reading this then you're like me and woke up on this side of the dirt so GOD is good.
