I don't pat myself on the back often, but I am confident in saying that I'm pretty darn good at time management and organization. Most of the time... okay, some of the time... really all of the time unless you throw a kink into my day, but kinks are thrown my way daily, who am I kidding?
Doubting aside, I do think that time management is one of my God-given talents. One of those things He knew I would need from the beginning, and, seeing where He led my life, I'm so glad that He was kind enough to bless me with it!
I have schedules and daily checklists that I live by, and organizational tools that save me on a daily basis. Along the way I also created several systems that make our lives run easier. With our new, hectic schedule, we spend a lot of time in the car. It's been a couple of weeks, but I think we now have a handle on what's needed on a daily basis so we can survive.
Since we're potty training (two kids), our most important must-have items are a travel potty and an extra change of clothes and underwear. Actually, I learned the hard way that an extra set of clothes are needed for me as well during the potty training process. Don't ask.
I'd like to do a short, weekly series on things that help me out... organizational tools, calendars, lists, etc. Interested? I think we could a learn a lot from each other. I'm psyched to hear how you do things at your house!
And, just so you don't think I'm getting a big head, or have it totally all together, I'll admit one of my great organizational faults: scrap booking and picture organization. Does anyone have this all together? I just can't do it, and live in total fear that my children will hate me forever because of their lack of concrete memories.
I did stumble upon this recently. Looks like an amazing book with layouts and the like. Perfect for non-creative types like me. I'm going to download it and save for the future... you know, after you guys share tips on how you do all of that cutesy stuff. Help a sister out!
